    OK, so I know you're all (well most) experienced modders, this has been my first venture into modding, a TeamXecuter ICEDCUBE case. Already thinking of adding some lights to this baby :cool:
    Thought I'd post a couple of pics of my new pride & joy :D

    That looks really nice - not too keen on the black stickers on the front though, and I'd rather keep the original GameCube logo patch. Is that possible?

    Yep, you can easy just pop out your existing Gamecube jewel and replace it in the new case lid. Personaly I like the Icedcube jewel & stickers :)

    My youngest lad has been nagging me about this for a few weeks now after he saw it on the Team Xecutor site.

    Is it hard to do ? and do you just need the case to be able to read full size discs or does it involve other mods also?

    Indeed :D , TBH I've been tempted to try modding cases for years, even as far back as the playstation1 :eek: , never had the nuts to open the case though. After seeing this case I had to do it.....could be the start of something now I'm more confident ;)

    Actually it was fairly simple, I'm pretty slow and catious and it only took about 30-45 mins for the whole process. The only problem I had was screwing the original case screws(the four main case screws ) back ni as on the new case they were too tight, even with the required bit tool. I ended up using four shorter ordinary wood screws, at least it'll be nice and easy to open if I decide to add some light mods later :D
    There are other mods (well, mod chips) you'll need if you wish to use full size disks, but as for size, the case allows for them perfectly :thumbsup:

    No, not yet, why, do you think it's worth it? I can't see the benefit apart from the obvious of being able to play pirated games which I don't go into.

    I wondered that? Is there any benefit to having the Cube modded if you are not wanting to play pirated games? Same applies to the case mods to enable full size discs to be used...is this just for pirated games or does it serve another purpose also?

    For me the sole purpose of changing the case was to have it matching my crystal xbox and PStwo (looks great with all 3 clear now, didn't like to see one black console sat there). As for using the full size disks, I understand that chipped it would also allow the use of homebrew games via full size disks (which of course are far cheaper than the writable small disks that the cube needs).
    Also you are able to add led's (if you like that type of thing of course ;) ) inside the case with the benefit of a mod chip, I might decide to do this later as I've seen a couple pics of this done somewhere and thought it looked damn cool :cool:

    is that right? that'd be handy as I'm currently thinking of selling off my PAL games in favour of getting NTSC ones (along with freeloader disk of course), purely to enable progressive scan for my PJ. How many PAL gamecube games enable prog. scan? would they be the same ones as the NTSC ones?

    Now this is what I am talking about. The only reason I got the X3 chip in my XBox was enable the Hi Def output so if there is a benefit to getting the Cube chipped I may just get this and the IcedCube case done for my son....plus I have to agree that it would look great with two crystal machines sat together :thumbsup:
