    Also had a friend design me a multicap addon for the slim, kind of like the multicap addon for CR because I got tired of soldering diff caps to test boot speed.

    Credit to 3D0kassiah of Acidmods for the design..

    Got my $10 batch of heatsinks with 3m thermal tape for ram, southbridge, nand, voltage regs in today, I know Its overkill but i had a $10 ebay gift card so i said why not.

    [​IMG]



    I have this ordered for the 2 ram chips on the left side under the heatsink in the pic above.

    Fujipoly Ultra Extreme System Builder Thermal Pad - Mosfet Block - 100mm x 15mm x 1.5mm - Thermal Conductivity - 17 w/mk

    http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17502/thr-186/Fujipoly_Ultra_Extreme_System_Builder_Thermal_Pad_-_Mosfet_Block_-_100_x_15_x_15_-_Thermal_Conductivity_170_WmK.html?id=T8mARZek&mv_pc=654


    17 w/mk is better than most thermal compounds, IC 24 Carat is only 4.5 w/mk & Arctic Silver 5 is 8.5 w/mk. I'm tempted to try the Fujipoly on Cpu/Gpu.


    I know most of the stuff in this reply is overkill but i had the spare cash and wanted to test to see how much it helps temps if any..

    I doubt I'll be able to sell this RGH because I have $180 in the brand new console & $130 in RGH & Cooling supplies, lol. But I don't mind keeping it for myself..

    XENON JTAG PRE-NXE

    This Is my personal offline jtag that has 320gb hdd and 2 2-tb external usb hdd's. Hdd's include complete xbla collection, complete xbla & retail DLC set, also includes about 90 360 games plus emus & roms.

    This Is my favorite jtag and I'm dedicated into investing in cooling mods on it to keep it alive.

    *The Weird Thing Is That This Xenon Has The Glue On CPU/GPU, I'm Guessing It Was A RROD Repair Or Replacement Since The Xenon's Didn't Come With The Glue When Released*


    Supplies Used:

    TX: Xenon Jtag Kit, Thremal Pads For All Chips On Bottom Of The Motherboard

    Thermal Compound Used: IC 24 Carat

    Custom Fan Shroud: Hot Glue, Cardboard, Black Spray Paint

    Heatsinks Used: http://stores.ebay.c...d=p4634.c0.m322

    STARTING A v5 CORONA DUAL NAND PROJECT TODAY!!

    IT WILL BE VERY SIMILAR TO MY v6 ABOVE BUT WITH 250GB HDD..

    UPDATE: It looks like my 14yr old son that I taught to solder decided to make this his 1st RGH build while I was out of town. Here are some pics of his install, I still have to show him how to cut a window in the case, cut a window in the dvd drive and install leds and after all that it will find its way to the marketplace if he doesnt try to keep & if he does try to keep i'll have to sell his jasper rjtag.

    Corona v5 With X360 Stone v1.1 Install Pics Coming Soon..

    This Is my first time installing a X360 Stone v1.1 (DGX Stone) and so far I'm not very happy with the solder pad layout on the chip because it makes the C1 & C2 Wires cross each other and I personally don't like crossing wires unless there is no other option because back in the PS2 days it caused major interference.

    Edit: The X360 Stone is crap, It booted to xell one time & then the chip never powered up again.

    Console belongs to XPG member mortaImage (Corona v5)

    I decided to try the 360 Squirt 2.0 Reloaded since all current TX chips are discontinued - sold out everywhere & I'm very pleased with the chip so far.

    Squirt 2.0's were ordered from MoonRiver-GameParts on Ebay.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Xbox-360-Squirt-PCB-for-Coolrunner-V2-0-Most-Updated-Version-/321446832180?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ad7b96834

    We ordered the FlashCatUSB Programmer to program the Squirt 2.0 chips, I decided to order this programer instead of the squirt programer because it is compatable with alot of other chips, consoles, modems, cable boxes unlike the Squirt programer.
    http://www.embeddedcomputers.net/products/FlashcatUSB/

    Here is 1 install pic:
    Post: 12cm Kynar From Pad 1 On The Post Adapter v2 to Pad +32 On Squirt 2.0
    Cpu_Rst: 16cm Kynar From C5R11 (Under X-Clamp) to Pad +28 On Squirt 2.0
    Squirt 2.0 - J1, J2, J3 Unsoldered & Slim Jumper Soldered
    I don't like to cross wires so I try my best to not cross any.
    [​IMG]

    Here is a couple quick videos of the Corona v5 with Squirt 2.0 showing the boot time. The boot time is great with these chips, I hope the boot speed is the same after I get it all put back together. If not I'll have to spend time tuning it.

    I will be the first to admit that this is the best booting chip that I have ever installed, If it boots the same when it's assembled I might be switching out my TX Slim Proto v2 for the Squirt 2.0 until the TX CR4 is released.

    All that's left to do is clean up all the flux, put it back together & prepare the hdd.

    Nice to see some good WIP, also seen older xenons (I think) with the glue round the chipsets!? Maybe early recalls/Microsoft rework soloution...
