Any questions feel free to ask.

The process was fiddly and took a couple of hours and the end result? 360 is silent now when not spinning the disc, so when the dashboard update comes allowing game installs it really will be silent.

What annoyed me wasn't just the DVD drive spinning, but those whiny little fans at the back and that's no longer a problem.

Would love to see pics of the final result and anything you have whilst doing it.

You say when not spinning the DVD? that is the only time my x360 makes noise? so the mufflers around the DVD drive in the Lian Li XB01 still don't drown out the DVD Drives' infernal noise? lol

I'll take a pic tonight when I'm home.

I think the muffles do help to an extent, but the DVD drive is very noise still - overall the sound is less offensive. I think the muffles take off some of the high frequency sound of the DVD drive, and like I said the fan is completely silent vs. the two whiny ones you get as standard.

Yeah did you take photographic documentation of the process? If so post it please :)

EDIT: My missus was ashamed after seeing the pictures so dusted and then took more.

On the Lian Li website they actually have a tutorial on how to install your 360 in this.

Im not so fussed about the noise but more of the aesthetic looks on this case and what you would be able to do to mod it as its more based on a pc tower.
And how hard it was to install it.
btw nice dust you get a free unit with that lol

I wonder if this would reduce the RRoD chances if it's based around cooling?
