Here's a question: have you guys ever burned yourself soldering?

I imagine it probably happens sometimes.

The most important thing is that you never let the solder touch the tip after you've "tinned" it. If you do, the solder will simply stick to the tip instead of whatever you're trying to solder. You basically just want to sandwich the object between the cold solder and the tip.

New recording/MAME/etc. machine I decided to build since my other one was too big to fit in on the console shelving. This should fit right in tongue.gif Just playing around with placement of parts and seeing what I can fit. I'm not sure it's feasible to get an optical drive in here though, not in it's original placement anyway. I have a slim drive, but the way I have chosen to place everything it's something I chose to sacrifice. I am trying to keep the case as stock as possible, at least on the exterior. Going to either keep the current controller ports intact, and make some USB adapters to plug into them, or just replace the controller connectors with USB. I needed to save space for a GPU/capture card/whatever, so there is space for that beneath the motherboard, along with a 3.5" drive. The PSU is a 1U with the casing removed and stand offs installed into the Xbox casing. So the plan is to cut up an MATX motherboard tray I have to serve as the new motherboard tray/divider. I also have the motherboard with the input panel facing the interior for a few reasons...it fits nicely, but most importantly, I didn't want to have to cut a space into the Xbox casing for the input panel area on the motherboard. Instead, I am going to reuse what is already there, and just run passthrough connectors and cables to the motherboard. So the rear of the case should still look mostly stock. PSU is in same position as Xbox one, and thus I can put the mains power plug in the exact same spot. Also, the video connector for the xbox will be reused to put a DVI passthrough. I will also Dremel out right beside it, in the flat portion of the rear of the Xbox casing to house VGA, HDMI, couple USB, and reuse the LAN port with a passthrough connector in its place. I would also like to have a solid mount for a dual slot GPU though, so I might have to modify the exterior quite a bit to pull that off...but I also have a few ideas for that, such as making the mount internal, and again doing passthroughs and cables to the rear of the case. And I know PC into an Xbox case has been done many times before, this isn't really a creative idea so much as something that fit my needs for a PC to fit in with the consoles on the shelf.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It took me a moment to realize what you were saying you were trying to do. I think I get it now: modern mATX mobo in the case of an "original" xbox. Or you gutted a $400 XBox One. Seems expensive.

The actual hardware of the original Xbox could do a lot of that stuff. Seems like a lot of work though. I keep finding them randomly. Whatever market there may have been for the original xbox apparently the bottom fell out. I don't remember the SNES ever dropping under $10. So now I have four of them (original xbox, not SNES).

Anyway it's not that bad of a PC case mod, at least to me. Seems like you could leave the outside of the optical drive tray in place and use a USB optical drive when needed. And/or just use thumb drives since you're adding USB ports anyway. You can get four 8gig sticks for like 20 bucks or whatever.

Are you going to do anything else? Leave the front controllers ports as-they-are-but-really-they're-usb-ports? Maybe LEDs all round the outside? Turn the LEDs into an equalizer at flick of a switch?

The Xbox is a great system, but it's very undervalued by most who aren't modders or 6th gen enthusiasts, so as a result they're super cheap. Even more so are the games, so I often go into my local used book store and walk out with 5 or 6 games and maybe only $30 less in my wallet.

It's a fantastic system for emulators and 6th gen multi-plats.

I upgraded the hard drive in my OG Xbox.

I have full romsets for all the classic systems with box art and video previews for it all. Even Turbografx (which I can't afford the real thing).

It doesn't get used very much anymore but if I ever want to play emus that's the system to use.

Also kind of retro gaming related...finally brought home a junk iMac G3 I had at my Mom's, and gutted it. Can't make use of the original CRT like I planned though...there is some communication between the analog video board and the motherboard that happens before the CRT will boot up, and I haven't been able to find anyone able to recreate those signals to use it with anything else. Unfortunately, my G3 is a slot loader, and it doesn't have a normal VGA connector like the tray loaders do. The case though looks good now all gutted up, tossed everything I won't need. Now to either find another suitable CRT, one that doesn't need Apple's motherboard to power on, or just face the fact I'll likely end up having to do an LCD conversion like everyone else lol Not sure what I will be using the thing for just yet, but you can bet it will find it's way into my retro gaming section to suit some purpose I can't think of right now lol

Needs to be cleaned up a bit, but otherwise the case is in pretty decent condition, should be able to get it looking mostly new again -



The motherboard tray/divider is going to be remade from scratch since I have never discharged a CRT before, and it's required to remove it from the tray. I will make the new tray and mount in the same way as the old one though to make things easier. Also, the tape is just there because nothing is screwed together at the moment.

Anyway it's not that bad of a PC case mod, at least to me. Seems like you could leave the outside of the optical drive tray in place and use a USB optical drive when needed. And/or just use thumb drives since you're adding USB ports anyway. You can get four 8gig sticks for like 20 bucks or whatever.

Are you going to do anything else? Leave the front controllers ports as-they-are-but-really-they're-usb-ports? Maybe LEDs all round the outside? Turn the LEDs into an equalizer at flick of a switch?

The Xbox PC is basically going to be setup as a console recording PC, but might also double as a MAME machine since it will sit on the shelf with my other consoles. I wanted at least some semi-decent hardware in there as well, hopefully be OK for Steam streaming and Netflix and stuff too. Plus, I wanted to be able to upgrade it quite easily, so I wanted space for a full size GPU if I ever decided to put one in there. For now it won't need one. And yeah, I got this Xbox for $10, and it never really worked properly, something wrong with the mainboard that I could never diagnose. It's just been sitting around collecting dust. I'll keep the parts for it though just in case I need them for my other Xbox. I'll put the original optical drive cover plate back on somehow to mask the fact that there won't be an optical drive. And yeah, I have a USB drive as well as a USB floppy drive for old DOS games and such. I won't be doing much else with the case, like I said, the plan is to keep it as stock looking as possible. I thought about maybe doing some LEDs, though I am not 100% on that...possibly just the Xbox logo lit up or something might be cool...don't really think I want to go the flashy route with this thing though. Also thought about a small LCD display in the optical drive opening, but decided stock looks are more important to me. I might actually leave 2 of the controller ports alone, and just convert the other 2 to USB, and use actual Xbox controllers for gaming/whatever. I haven't really planned to much else, any ideas?

I went out yesterday to get the one thing for $3 and ended up with a whole pile of junk. I was just going to show the most noteworthy of my pickups or at least the most unique.

The game isn't the unique thing, kit's the wooden box. I was really impressed with it. What I should have done is tell the store I'll take the box for $2.50 and they can sell the game separately for another $2.50. Because it's a neat little wooden box.



Other than that I did get a rather eclectic mix of different games and accessories. Some PS1, some PS2, one 2600, 2 NES, 2 PSP and 2 other PC games: activision action pack 2...for windows 3.1 (an astounding 15 atari 2600 games...) and Cyberia 2. I don't know if cyberia is any good and I haven't played the first one but I've heard nothing but good things in general.

I've been on kind of a "anthology" bender recently. I found an atari anthology for PS1. And I happen to have this weird hand controller with a rotary thing...for driving games. And a web site pointed out that controller could be used with Tempest. And it can but not very well. Maybe if I take it apart and "make some adjustments".

Almost forgot. My first 32x game: Star Wars. It seemed like a good price ($3.20). But now I realize I can't sell it since i have no way to test it. I could clean the contacts and hope-for-the-best. Or trade it in some place.

Nah, that's actually pretty neat. What a great idea considering the theme of the game.

I don't think I've ever seen any video game that came in a wooden box before.

Thanks for sharing.

Is it that Namco driving controller you have, the thing with the rotary dial on it? That Oregon Trail box is neat too, and quite a score for the price of it. If the controller you have is a Namco Jogcon, I wouldn't tweak anything inside it...they are worth about $50+ right now. The Negcon is also worth about the same.

It's this one. I checked the price once, it didn't look all that special. I forgot what it was called already.
