Anyone modded there 360 with a new case yet?

I've seen some clear ones around but not sure wether to buy one yet. I'm thinking of a clear case. I've already broken the seal on mine so there's no worry about warrenty. Plus if it breaks I'll just take it back to comet and with the origi case on and they probly won't know the difference.

Something like this is what I'd be looking at:

Worth it? Anyone else done something similiar to this with there xbox?

Yeah i have a clear case on mine :D

Its fairly tricky to get the case apart and a little worrying but i managed it so it cant be too hard!

I'll try and take some pics for you guys when im at home.

I've been wanting a black case for mine since I'm not really a fan of the white case. I'm not quite ready to crack mine open yet though. :)

A great tutorial on disassembling your case can be found here (http://www.xboxchopshop.com/catalog/man_360_open.php).

opening your case voids your warranty correct?

Ohhhh I want one so bad. Are they hard to fit or quite straight forward? Easy to do with the tutorial on taking the 360 apart, then basically putting it back together with the new case I prosume?

I managed to do it without a tutorial and i have almost no experience with electronics so it cant be too hard!!

Getting the original case off is the hardest bit

Yeah, I can only get my faceplate off so far and I've tugged and tugged at the one side of the case with the clips off. I'm gona try buy me a see through case soon :D

don't buy any new case that isn't re-enforced with metal. The case that comes on every xbox is re-enforced with metal, so if you are careless you will get a crack in you new clear case
