someone i know has a older xbox 360 FAT lying around,
i noticed a M-itx board fitted in
with a tx PSU
so i had the idea of modding it in such a way that it needs minimal cutting/frame editing
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get a Xbox360 Fat
get a old xbox 360 fat, it needs to be the fat model since this this is the only one wich can hold a psu,mb, and other stuff
all other models are too small.
a ps2 fat should also work (not sure)
Step 2: Get a Small Pc/hw
as the title says get a mini-itx pc
make sure you get a correct psu that fits in the case/near
Step 3: 3d Print Mb Support/other Items for Better Support
Step 4: Cutting the Frame
this part involves cutting the metal frame that holds the xbox
make sure you have thought about how you want to fit it inside, since if you cut it once, you cannot redo it.
since i do not have a dremel on me at this moment, i cannot do this.
but as you can see i only have to cut the place where the old powerbutton was and some parts at the back.
as you can see on my test setup (just lying on the table) i have a memory-card/usb hub, and a sff dvd-drive
wich all fit inside the case on top of the psu
the HDD (now a 2,5") will come in the place of the old location of the HDD
(if you look it up at google, you can see tons of casemods wich have a total redo of the casing, wich also ruins the original design)
i wanted to make 1 wich still looks like a xbox at first sight
Step 5: Finalizing Your Mod
when you're done it looks like a normal xbox, but holds a full pc
