Default My son's new modded computer

Not mine, but it's quite a set up. He's done a really good job on it so far. Even has an X-box 360 built in. Almost done with it - I think he's going to post a video online when he gets it totally finished.

Both the i5 cpu and the Xbox cpu are water cooled . . .

Now, THAT is cool.
I wish I had the spare cash to start a project like that.

Really good job he should be proud

That Xbox mod is very interesting and unique,I wonder has he overclocked the Xbox CPU at all?

Another question how has he wired the cooling up,does he have to have both on at the same time for the pump to circulate water?

No, the Xbox doesn't have to be running for the pump to circulate. He bought the water block for the Xbox seperate from the pump kit, and just added it into the flow.

Off topic, but now I have a new build! They tricked me into going to Fry's electronics with them - to pick up some stuff for my son's girlfriend's PC they said. They kept trying to get me to look at the i5 processors, and I couldn't figure out why. They finally gave up and told me for my birthday they had bought me a P8P67 motherboard like the ones they have, a Cooler Master HAF case like theirs. and some red mod lights for the case. Turns out they feel I should replace my trusty P4 3.0HT I built in 2004 . So what could I do? I had to buy an i5 3.10 processor, and 8GB of ram, and a SATA DVD-RW drive . . . Got me Win 7 Professional also . . . this thing rocks!

Happy birthday to meeeee!!!

Working on it

At some point when he's finished modding it he's going to put up a youtube video. He still has to mod the Xbox lights to the front of the case. He's already cut a side window in it:

Oh, and I don't think he is OC the Xbox . . . but I could be wrong.

Command Sergeant Major Spad, I love it when users mod their rigs!

I hope we get to see more pictures, especially in daylight..The blue light format is my favorite.
