    Xbox Original in X360E case or Backward compatable only X360.

    This is an update to my Original Xbox case mod.
    An original Xbox 1.6 inside a X360E case and using the 360 power supply.

    Everything inside the case.

    Rewired front panel with working green and red LEDs plus working power and eject buttons.

    Power controller, this has a picaxe micro which detects when the front panel power button is pressed, and turns on or off the 360 power brick. The power brick outputs a low power 5v standby but needs an on signal to output 12v. The clock capacitor is also connected here to provide a constant voltage so the time doesn't reset.

    Power supply has two DC to DC converters, they get 12v from the 360 power brick and create the required voltages;
    5v On,
    5v Standby,
    3.3v power Ok
    and 12v.

    Case fan and fan controller.

    Front panel and shielding, you can also see a blower fan which directs air over the power supply.

    Rear panel. Two controller ports are located here, the other two are connected to the front panel USB slots. I use a wireless controller plugged in the back. Power socket on the right.

    Fully assembled.


    Just a demo of the system booting up.
