I'm new here but seeing as I have bought 90% of my parts from WatercoolingUK I thought I would share with you what I'm up to  :wink: .

 

Simple as, Water cool an exbox 360 elite because....errrr....I can!  [-Y  =D: , nice little challenge too!

 

Early stages at the moment but I'll keep the updates flowing.

 

First things first I decided I'm gonna need a window, so out came the dremel!

 

I did try using a ruler to keep the lines straight but I cut through that too  8-o) .

The next stage was to spray it all Matt Black!

Just waiting on a large box of parts to arrive now and I'll be able to crack on with it.

 

Using a  Bitspower 40mm Water Tank and a 12V Laing DDC-1T Pro Pump taking straight off of the main board power.

Hi,

 

welcome to the forum :)

 

I've seen a couple of water cooled xbox 360s but this is a first using that dinky 2x40 rad!

 

My only question is about the fans you'll use on the rad. Have you sourced fans that can push enough air without being loud and whiney?

 

Looking forward to following this project.

 

Ian.

Thanks for the welcome Ian  :) , the fans I've opted for are the fractal design FD silent series, If they're too noisy I can see myself changing to a larger rad and fan and perhaps mount it externally, we'll see .

I was thinking that too :D

 

Never really looked at 360's being WCd so interested in seeing this coming on :)

 

I kind of expected the 360's mainboard to have a bit more in the way of components on it than that though

I remember seeing the first guy to do it years ago. Fitted it ALL internally too. Was awesome. Apparently he got a job at Microsoft off it, but dunno how true that was...

 

Lian Li also made an aftermarket case for it to watercool easily
