Introduction: Xbox 360 Power Adaptor for a Atx Pc Power Supply

This is an instructable for all those cheap gamers .
I bought a Xbox 360 from the us and when it arrived it had a 110v psu that subsequently i blew up !
i live in South Africa witch is a 220 v country .
so i googled a way to fix it and it came with a item on ebay witch would have cost another $10
that i don't have . and i would have to wait for a long time to get it . i then found another diy one . i will post a link . i then took that plan and modded it to work with my 300w power supply .
here is a link to that site : http://www.360-hq.com/xbox-tutorials-20.html

Step 1: The Schematic

Here is the schematic .DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS if you dont have a basic electronic knowledge!!
I take no responsibility for damage done if it does not work .
the wires are colour coded in my picture . cut off all the other wires . i left mine about 5 cm long so i could use them to form the shape .once i had it all soldered together and tested i covered it in heat shrink and hot glue.

Step 2: Finished


Here is a link to the video of me powering up

My plug has 3 bigger black wires, 1 small black wire, 3 big yellow wires, 1 small yellow, 1red and 1 blue. My question is what do I do with the smaller black and yellow wires?

hi there, do you connect all the bundled wires from the xbox to a single respective coloured wire from the psu or just one ?
