So my curious self was wondering if it would be possible to put and Xbox in a pc case. Earlier today I tried to put a jasper Xbox motherboard in an atx pc case and only 1 screw hole fit. I really feel like it would be possible to but you probably would have to cut many holes in the case and run many wires to get the original computer power button to work and the leds on the tower to work. I’ve seen people do it but I’ve wanted to try myself.

its probably a more complicated job than just buying a case and a motherboard. people who do these normally alter the case or custom make them. however wanna do some hillbilly stuff get a drill and some bits and make your own holes and such and get the proper standoffs or something of the sort so the motherboard doesnt touch the metal of the case youll want some space between the board and case. do some custom bolting.

People have done it with the slim consoles, so I imagine it is very possible with the phat consoles. Both for the 360 and standard One's. Unsure if the Series consoles have been "cased" yet.

I don't see why not, probs a custom case would be a way to go and some longer cables and all good
