    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    Zotac GTX 1050ti low-profile, but the CPU and the PSU can handle a better low-profile GPU down the line. I'm not using a riser.

    Something is wrong, maybe test the LEDs and the switches to make sure they aren't sharing a ground on the PCB or something. It's weird that the lights are still on though. Does the PC run ok if you start it with a screwdriver without the front panel connected?

    I have my LEDs going to the same pins, and the switches to the power. I remember there being something funny about the PCB, but it was easy to follow the traces.

    It's hard to get at, sorry.

    I bought this one on new egg I think. 500W; I swapped out the 40mm fan for a 12V noctua. http://athenapower.com/product/power-supply/flex-atx/ap-mfatx50p8

    I followed the traces on the back of that PCB, and pulled out the yellow wires that I did not need. I clipped off the connector, and put female jumper ends on the remaining ones. Green LEDs were in parallel, and both switched were in parallel. I'm really happy with the look.

    Rear: Front: The case isn't screwed together right now, and I would like to shorten the power supply cables. I'm planning to hook up the original controller ports properly also. It's a pretty well ventilated case with both sides as large intakes, and the rear as an exhaust. Oh, and a boot logo:

    Our machine's are very similar in the way that they are layed out. I wired up both the power and eject buttons in parallel, but on top I left the jewel green. I have a 120GB NVME SSD for my system drive, and a 1TB SATA SSD for Steam. Also, a Ryzen 5 2600 paired with 16GB of 3000MHz DDR4.

    Damn, I only have one header for USB 2.0 on my B450; the search continues.

    My DVI port is structural (as are the BIC pens).

    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    2070 is definitely unnecessary, but good job Mine has a low profile 1050ti that breathes through one side of the XBox (no riser), a Ryzen 5 2600, and a flex ATX PSU where the original PSU used to be; mine isn't for gaming at 4K. I also aligned the DVD faceplate better, kept the original front panel LEDs, and the eject button will also start the machine. I haven't installed the original ports yet. @AlexTheGreatish Not sure I'm aloud to ping. Did the video show the back when it was finished? Also, was there an internal USB hub used in the build(I was waiting to see what you used)?

    Our best effort still SUCKS - Sketchy Heatsinks 3

    A 3D printed heatsink would make a good episode for sketchy heatsinks, emphasis on the SKETCH. If a design can only be 3D printed, it's not very useful IRL.

    Our best effort still SUCKS - Sketchy Heatsinks 3

    I'm programmed and ran HAAS mills in a prototyping shop for years. I have one more year at Algonquin for mechanical engineering technology, so I fully intend to put that experience to use as I design parts. It really helps to know HOW something can be easily manufactured. A pedestal grinder, surface grinder, bandsaw, manual lathe, and a good CNC mill would be my dream shop. I would drive a beater to achieve that dream someday.

    One can dream. 50k is great for a new CNC mill though.
