Default Cool Case Mode: The OS/Xbox !

Below is a YouTube video of a cool OS/Xbox - what some people can do with an old Xbox case is pretty cool, as I stated on my own little-bitty blog.

Default

That's a great mod... there's a ton of stuff crammed into a small space (four hard drives and an SSD!), 8GB of RAM and more. That's intense. It's kind of depressing at the same time, because he sacrificed an Xbox development kit for the purpose, when in the end, the end result was pure black and didn't even retain anything that made the Xbox an Xbox. Development kits aren't common, and it's probably worth more than his entirely modded PC.

Either way, it was a good video and interesting mod. Talk about a LOT of work.

Rob I totally agree with you about the wasting of the XBOX Dev Kit. However I think it was totally worth it. He kinda needed the Dev Kit in order to cram all that stuff in there. I have to hand it to him, I am impressed.

I am more impressed with the creativity and time spent devising such a plan then I am the actual build itself.

I thoroughly enjoyed the video editing myself. As a man who has been filming, producing and starring in snowboard videos for over 13 years I can say that the effort in creating the video itself is worthy of applause.
