tutorial-360 powered by an atx pc psu

Post by That Tech Kid » Sat Dec 19, 2009 1:31 am

materials...
*computer power supply that can put out at least 12volts @16.5amps and 5volts @1amp ($10-20)
*original nyko intercooler ($5.00 used at gamestop)

first take apart the intercooler, just a few screws markd in red in the picture
Image
next cut the fan wires, and cut off the female connector as shown below
Image
now cut off the 20 pin connector
Image
once that is done, you will need to grab 3 black wires, 3 yellow wires, 1 blue wire, 1 purple wire and (the green and another black wire...keep these separate)
Image
now follow this diagram to solder the wires, dont get confused with the wire color from the intercooler
one black wire for every ground, one yellow wire for every 12 volt, for pin 1 use the blue wire, for pin 2 use the purple wire
Image
in the end it should look something like this
Image
now all you have to do is put a switch between the green wire and a black ground wire, flip the switch and turn on your 360

Oh you used a cheap intercooler to get the plug for the xbox, that is smart, but what size are those fans on those, because i might do it so i have fans and the plug.

*moved to XBox 360 Reference forum*

Great tutorial! And a good use of an Intercooler, as well.
