Ohhh haha. Well I was thinking about that last night and I am not exactly sure.. I'm gonna have to makeshift some holders like the original xbox cd drive has, or possibly use those if they are tall enough. I won't have my drive for awhile.. can't order it til tomorrow when I get paid.

That's a shame tongue.gif You could have got a mATX mobo that supports SLI/Crossfire (if they exist laugher.gif ) and get a couple of low profile graphics cards and SLI/Crossfire them (if any exist) laugher.gif

They do wink.gif

BTW some mATX mobo's do fit, the very first kind of mods you see on youtube etc show them using mATX motherboards it wasn't till later they switched to mITX the only problem with mATX is that u run out of space for power. So you either need to use a very low power consuming setup (defeats the point of SLI mobo tho) or you use an external PSU and wire everything inside, not a significantly horrible idea. Alternatively, you could make a PSU urself but dunno about that.


mATX w SLI/Crossfiire http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8H67M_EVO/ is an example of one, low profile cards crossfirable are the 6570s and the 6670s... there exists a low profile 6850 but japan has them. Now the point is the mobo doesn't fit right? you just have to look for something. Looking down at my mobo it looks like there is enough space for the Asus mobo, bu nothing much more and if you put the two gfx card in, it'll run out of space for the dvd...

That mobo is the typical mATX size, (9.6in x 9.6in ) and will not fit in the Xbox 360's chassis, so how would you go about doing such a thing? I measured the Xbox 360's internal chassis and it is 8 inches and some change wide.

was just an example, all i meant was that there do exist matx mobos that fit into the xbox 360. http://ant.allenthinks.com/?p=73

There was also another gigabyte mobo (older) that fit with approximate dimensions 24.4cm x 22.0cm or 8.66 inches wide (22.0cm) I don't think they are using the metal cage though :S any ways it's just for point sake.


When I said it's an example of one, it was just an example of a mATX that is SLI/Crossfire-able not necessarily the right size. "Now the point is the mobo doesn't fit right? you just have to look for something. " when I said looking down there might be enoguh space I actually just looked at guessed based on my mITX sitting in the plastic so it's totally 100% a guess lol. But the max that I found roughly is 28cm in length 23cm wide or ~ 11x9 inches. you'll be required to cut the plastic and you may have to dump the metal cage though. Remember you gain about quarter inch (~-0.5 - 0.75cm) by cutting the plastic kuz the IO ports stick out the back.

So the asus i pointed out is too wide, but there should be something that'll fit.


http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138296 is 9.6x9.06 maybe? someone needs to check this, and also depends what is what side. You need the side from the IO to the RAM (if you connect the two as a line) side to be 9.06inches or less.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138308 here is another

IMO those should fit, but it's only a guess based on specs and rough measurements

late edit: but here's an amd that'll do it http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=68283&vpn=A75M-D2H%26A8-3870&manufacture=Bundle%20Deals&promoid=1029 llano bundle for dual gfx if you want also, but the motherbaord itself supports crossfireX.

OP...Y U NO USE PENTIUM!?!

Okay, troll post aside, for 20 dollars more the Pentium G620 is a SUPERB chip. The dual cores will really help you out in media playback. Sandy Bridge Celeries are Okay, but the Pentium is a far more attractive option and runs ice cold (45* C Folding 24/7 for me).

Nope, I get the slim blu ray drive tomorrow(or today in like 8hrs). No updates besides the fact that I broke my RF module by epicly failing to solder the LED points on the back. I really messed up the solder points, but I ordered another RF module off eBay for $5 and when I get it I know what I'm doing this time, so i'll be fine. Oh and turns out 100 ohm resistor is a bit much, the LED was very weak. I probably need a 50 ohm.

I was considering it, but to me it was either go big(i3) or go home.. I went home and got the cheapest dual core. haha. The Pentium only has a slightly higher clock speed and 1MB of more L3 cache than the Celeron anyways, not a huge difference.

oh, well then sorry about that. I belong to an xbox modding forum and thats what they told me and with the xbox things it works good, maybe diff for pc then.
Also i am myself modding my xbox case into a water cooled rig biggrin.gif. Watercooling arrived today and I'm ordering the psu,mobo,cpu a bit later. MDPC sleeving will be here next week though so thats the earliest i can start lol
