Looking for help with putting an Xbox360 in a PC case.?

My Xbox360’s warranty expired around last week. Seeing as I’m no longer covered, I was looking to make some sort of modification to ensure I do not get a fatal malfunction, such as Red Ring of Death (RROD). After looking at adding water cooling systems and determining they’re a little too expensive, i was looking at putting it in a PC case with better fans. I’d just like to check to see if the parts I have in mind will work. Keep in mind I’m on a very low budget, so please do not suggest that I buy expensive parts. I’m willing to go with the cheapy parts as long as they will work. Aesthetics aren’t a huge issue in my opinion.

I was looking at this case: [url is not allowed]

Its got 3 good fans to prevent overheating. It doesn’t include a power supply, but I figure I can buy one if necessary or just run it off of the 360s. If this won’t work, please mention.

I know I will need an extension cable to hook up the HDD, will this one work ok?

What cable will I need to hook up the disc drive?

Also, what kind of cables will I need to hook up the USB ports, video, and Internet connectors? What will I need to extend the power button/ring of light to the front of the PC case?

Please be as specific as possible so I know what parts I will need to buy and what to do with them once I get them.

It’d also be great if all the parts could be on Newegg.com so I don’t have to place multiple orders. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. You’re going to end up spending more on this Frankenstein than if you just bought an all new 360 slim if your current one dies.

    It’s also quite risky. If it’s not broken, why mess with it?

    You say your warranty just expired, which means you probably have one of the falcon-rev 360s, which are MUCH less prone to the RROD. And seriously, if your 360 has gone this long without having the RROD, it’s probably going to go at least another 3 years and by that time, the 720 will be out, if not a few revs.

  2. TRY 2 TWO WEEK BANS ONLY A COUPLE DAYS APART. MICROSOFT IS SO FULL OF CRAP. SAVE YOURSELF A FEW HEADACHES SELL YOUR XBOX BUY A PS3 AND NEVER BUY ANY CRAP FROM MICROSOFT AGAIN. IM ON MY 4TH 360 THE FIRST 3 RED RINGED DAYS AFTER THEIR WARRANTIES HAD RUN OUT AND THE MIKES FOR LIVE DONT LAST FOR MUCH MORE THAN A COUPLE MONTHS. OH AND YEAH YOU CAN GET SUSPENDED FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
