    The Xbox One X just isn't powerful enough for us, so we decided to take matters into our own hands, creating a sleeper PC in an original Xbox chassis.

    This is the angle everyone should've took when Steam boxes were a thing. An actual desktop in a tiny form factor, not a laptop without a screen. Then people probably would've bought them.

    +volkswagenginetta They were not mobile chips. T chips are low power profile desktop chips, but they can reach higher turbo sustained compared to most H chips. And they are totally upgradeable if you wanted something higher power, it's just that the cooling might be difficult. The 860M-ish GPU is somewhat like a laptpp GPU but Dell's update to that form factor included a full 960, which is kinda nuts for how small and sealed it is. It's smaller than an OG PS2, let alone modern consoles. Pretty solid st...

    SteamLink works great for me. Glad I bought a few of them as they are currently unavailable. Not sure if they will be available again, so who knows. I have a decent desktop PC, so the Link is a great solution. This was an awesome build project to watch though!

    The original Xbox is considered vintage gaming hardware now. I'm going back to sleep.

    Blue dye - You know that old story that NASA spent $5m on a pen that could write in zero gravity while the Russians tooks a pencil? Yeah, PENCIL! Marks aluminium perfectly!!!

    Or a Sharpie! That and a pencil is all I ever needed. Too each their own.

    Wouldn't the graphite lift off surfaces and be a fire Hazzard ? Looks like Russians played fast and loose; while NASA was concerned with safety and reliability.

    I have modified a few original Xbox's and you could have saved a ton of money/time by just throwing away the metal liner. it's not needed for anything
