Xenon Retail (Banned until the year 9999) :
I have a modest window with Blue LED's, a Blue ROL, and Whisper fans with RED LED's. To compliment the colors, I have a Red DVD bezel and eject button along with a rare BioShock 2 Faceplate (Only 1000 made). The Red and Blue colors are referenced to the substances, Adam (red) and Eve (blue) in the BioShock series. I switch between a 60GB HDD and a 120GB HDD.

Jasper 16MB RGH2:
Contains a CR4 and a Purple UV ROL installed by the legend, S ShawnUnderSe7en . It was originally housed by the Black Elite Console Casing, but I recently installed parts from the Halo 3 Limited Edition Xbox 360 console: Green Halo casing, Chrome Orange eject button & DVD Bezel (thank you to XeXGhosts for selling me the parts). I also acquired a Halo 3 limited edition HDD Casing to store my console's internal HDD. While I do have the Halo 3 Faceplate, I chose to use my rare BioShock faceplate instead (Only 5100 made). The console has a 500GB Internal HDD and I use a 1TB USB External HDD formatted to FAT32.

Xenon JTAG :
This baby has seen some action. It is the first modded console I worked with. It was revived back in the summer of 2014 with a Reball by S ShawnUnderSe7en (video here). Half of this console's casing is from a black Jasper Elite 360. I put in a Purple UV ROL with a white LED center and a 12V Fan mod with green LED's. I put on a Rare UK Pre-Order BioShock faceplate (thank you Noobert for telling me when you saw it on eBay) and I put in a 500GB HDD.

Trinity RGH2:
Contains a CoolRunner Rev C and I can't say I did much customization with this console. I mounted a "Nos Nitrous Oxide" (pays homage to NFS MW on Ps2 as I played that game to death) emblem to it from an old RROD Xenon that a friend had given me and put in a 60GB HDD. S ShawnUnderSe7en had wired in a JRProgrammer V2 for me and mounted it on the side of the console that is opposite of where the HDD is housed. For anyone who was ever in one of my lobbies or ever got a recovery from me, this console is most likely the one I was using (I did use my Xenon JTAG for a good amount of time too at first). Take note of the controller with the Multi-Colored LED keypad (good for typing in email addresses and messages during lobbies).

XDK's:
If you don't know what an XDK is, read this thread: https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/official-xedk-xdk-xbox-one-xdk-discussion-guide.902168/
From Left to Right, we have an XNA Test Kit (Expo), an XeDK Beta-1, and an XNA Dev Kit (Expo). Just to be clear, the XNA Faceplates are not real. The XNA kits have Jasper Mobo's. The Test Kit has a Green ROL and the Dev Kit has a Blue ROL. The XeDK has a Xenon motherboard as it is an early prototype development kit (see the thread linked above to read more about it and XDK's in general). The controller pictured with the XeDK is a Krypton Controller; normal controllers do not work with an XeDK.

Oh man. I still am jealous of your damn BioShock faceplate. Only 1000 were made, right?

Definitely my favorite game series.

Only 1000 were made for the BioSchock 2 faceplate and only 5100 were made for the Bioshock faceplate. One day I want to find one of those Arcadia. Wine Bottles that were put on beaches around the world as a promotion. One was on eBay awhile ago.

I'll keep my eyes out for ya. I'm on eBay every day looking at deals and new listings and such, so I'll add that to my search list.

How much was the one that was on eBay before?

Thanks, bud! I actually have no clue how much it was or how much it went for. I feel like it was an auction.

LOL, thanks man :smile: More XDK's have been springing up here and there on the BST, keep your eyes out for one you like. And as far as the retail goes, guarantee you can find an LED Storm v2 and a window case for fairly cheap nowadays somewhere. Can always pimp out your console. I feel like you have a slim perhaps? Parts for that too of course.
Did a custom cutout and installed my own LEDs. I just had too thick of Plexiglass so I had to snap some of the clips on the side panels and faceplate which in turn makes it look like absolute sh*t.

Probably going to order a new case and thinner plexiglass and re-do it.

Much better than I what I could do myself! I'm sure it looks decent enough, but nothing wrong with wanting to improve on it! Snapchat me a pic sometime.

I'll get to setting it up in my back room sometime soon. Probably tonight or tomorrow after work. It looks decent enough, the two-tone paint job and the RGB LEDs take your eyes away from the black duct tape at least...

Thanks! Just to clarify, I installed the Whisper fans to the same port as the regular fans as opposed to doing a 12V fan mod. At any rate though, even after running the console for hours, I've never noticed the fans getting very loud. Easily quieter than the stock ones.

Good to hear as a I have one ordered already. It'll be at 12v though so hopefully its not as loud as stock ones. Those things are killer loud.

I had wired some stock fans at 12V and it wasn't unbearable. I'm sure the Whisper fans will be quieter.
