    Are you talking about retrofitting a different motherboard into the xbox case? That sounds like a huge amount of hassle and probably impossible anyway. The xbox MB, like all console boards, is a custom design.

    Which is very easy

    A ITX / Shuttle board would probably fit in an Xbox without any issues (of course, you'd need to mod it ). Pretty sure a MATX would be too big though.

    edit - dont forget the Power issue you'll have once they are fitted. Different versions of the Xbox have different PSU's in them, and wont all be suitable for powering a normal motherboard.

    Of course he's basically just gutted the xbox and is only using the plastic shell as something to hold a SFF PC. Impressive though.

    Oh right so its just going to be used as a case then? Or are you using some parts that are already in it?
    IF you dont need to play XB games then well go for it, shouldnt be too hard. Would recomend getting another fan on it though.
