Hello Se7enSins​
I recently deceived to do my own Xbox One case mod/LED's. My warranty was up so what the heck, I had no idea where to start beside the color I wanted everything. I have done lights and stuff for Xbox 360 but not the One. I tried to look up where to put the LED's and where the 12 V points where. Everyone I talked to was for the Disc drive and so on. So I went on my own and took some pictures so maybe this will help for when ever or if you decide to put lights/LEDs in.

My Xbox Mods
Red LED's for Controller,chat mute, Console, Kinect, Power Brick, Also LED strips
120MM Clear 3 speed Fan mod
Inverted Grill.

I would suggest a couple of things

Good Soldering Skills for the Small LED's
Flux, So you don't burn the boards and can help guide the solder
Steady hands

I used 0805 LED's, i would also recommend this page if you dont know what the + or - sides of the LED's are.




This is the 12V points for the LED Strips under the Xbox




12V for Fan Mod where the original fan was
Left wire + Right -



And my Xbox One In progress



Xbox One Done




In the Dark



Then the 3speed Control.

Elite Controller added XD



Please let me know what you think :smile:
And if you need any help just ask.​

Yup! Once i get a window in ill put a kit in. Solder it where i have the LEDs now and it will work like a charm (Same thing i did on my RGH)

It was easy, when I modded my Xbone Controller my hands were shaking whilst soldering. I was afraid I was going to break it.

Yep, It looked easy in videos and I was like "Pssh, I got this." the next minute I thought "Crap, I don't have this".

Oo. The grill was not a fun time for me haha. I know I didn't do it correctly but, You will see points where it looks attached, I melted them with the soldering Iron and pulled lightly. Someone else may know a better and more professional way than mine.

Thanks man ya thats what im doing now its getting hot. I figured thats what was holding it on. Ill post pics of it when im done. Im still waiting on my 12v van to come in. I have an adapter to come in so its not always 12v all the time and let the box regulate the fan.
