    Hi all, if anyone has a US Xbox and wants to do away with the step down transformer, i would offer to swap it with a UK power supply......version 1.0 or 1.1.

    Not sure if this is the right place for this, so mods, pls move if req. to correct location.

    Thanks

    Is the PSU for the Xbox an external thing, or is it mains into the Xbox itself?

    I would not touch one of those ..... They are made by a company called 'MadCow' and are supposedly switchable voltage.....i have tried THREE of them in two different Xbox's and each one died between 25-40 mins....they overheat like crazy and shut off or burn out......hence the request for a genuine US psu.

    Thanks

    Required a US PSU....i tried those shown in the links...IMHO they are cheap rubbish !!
    As i said they lasted about 40 mins max. when tested at the UK voltage settings.....can't say if they are any more tolerant at the US voltage.

    Sorted now...pls close thread.

    Thanks
