Welcome to Phenoms Xbox 360 Rebuild Project Log As a lot of you guys may know, I made a thread will a poll a few days ago regarding if I should build an xbox with parts of have, and buy the parts I don't have. If you haven't seen the thread. Go HERE . I got more people either saying "No" or "Depends on how much you spend" but regardless of what they have said Im going to do it for fun. Ill try to limit the costs as much as possible, but I do plan to lose a bit of money, but I can risk that at this point. Doing this for fun, and thats the only benefit im expecting out of it. So I mentioned I have parts to be able to use. So far the list of parts of have are.... -Hitachi DVD Drive(I want to replace it with a Phillips so it won't put rings in game disks) -Heatsinks (most likely going to ditch them and get the better ones in the 2nd gen Zephyr revision Xbox and Falcon/Jasper xbox's) -Screws (but I need more) -X-clamps for the heatsinks -Fans(Going to ditch them as they are the old ones with the 4 pin pwoer rather then the 3 pin connector you would typically see in a PC today.) -White Faceplate -Top Panel -DVD drive eject button and front plate - Chrome and says Xbox 360 -Metal internal casing (It is a non hdmi version so unless i hack it up, ill get a new case) Parts I need to get: -Motherboard (Jasper Revision with Hitachi Drive PCB) -Screws -White plastic housing/casing -Metal internal casing for HDMI motherboards -Cooling fans with the 3 pin connector -Memory heat pads for the back side chips of the motherboard -Hard Drive(tentative) -Power Brick(175w) So when I was thinking about doing this, I wasn't planning on getting so much more parts, but once I started going through everything I had, I realized I needed more then I thought. Parts I have bought so far: 1. Xbox console from Ebay for parts (Cooling, casing, ring of light, memory heat pads, screws) The Xbox Once I get what i need out of this system, ill proceed on with everything else I need. At this time, I have nothing else for you guys. Stay tuned for next week when the xbox comes. Lots of pictures of my tear down will show up. This should be fun. Again, don't say its not worth it when it comes to funds, Im aware.
