    Looks pretty good actually with a decent fan. Cooler could still use some work. I really want to water cool my 360, but the costs :(

    Im pretty sure the whole point of the slim model 360 was to have the CPU/GPU on one die ;)

    Oh never knew that. Wouldn't that require AMD and IBM working together to pretty much create a new cpu ? It would need new pins and shit like that.

    Do you think the 'Slim' will use a slimline laptop style DVDROM or maybe even a front loader like the PS3?

    This would be quite interesting imo. I'd like to see a slot loader like the ps3 and a redesign of the front panel and faster cpu/gpu speeds.

    Slot load drive probably 100%, faster GPU/CPU speeds? Unlikely.

    Unlikely yes but would be appreciated more than a smaller form factor.

    Developers have to stick to the lowest common denominator. There is a reason clock speeds have never (correct me if I am wrong here) been altered when hardware is trimmed down.

    **note: I am aware of the PSP Slim's upgraded RAM, but that is hardly a deal breaker and really only helped load times and web browsing.

    Yes but games like MW2 can be quite choppy so even with a bump in clockspeeds it would help in some games which can be choppy.

    based on what I see, it will be a slimline dvd player and a internal hdd seeing as their are 2 sata connections, this is definitely a test board because all the headers are added, those headers won't be on the final board,

    the front connectors are 2 usb ports and the ROL connection
    the back connectors are power, standard video, hdmi, network/usb, memory cardx2(maybe), optical
    the left connection(yes its pointing left), probably a connector for natal to stick on the the top of the xbox or more internal space is missing???.

    more than likely not the final design

    xbox is a dead console it is already too old to play current games eg MW2 multiplayer, they should try and get the XBOX 3, 720 or Whatever the fuck they want to call it

    Just bought an eggbox. The new one, kinect bundle. A bit noisy IMO. Is there an easy mod for that cooler? Thanks for the pics BTW, saves me from opening mine up out of curiosity and losing warranty. :toast:
