Must Have: Dano2k0 Fully Internal Watercooled Xbox 360

Blue 360There’s probably only one word that caught your attention in the title: Internal. There have been a lot of water-cooled projects done over the course of time but this is the first one that will fit inside the original case of your XBox 360.

Even Dano2K0 admits that this is probably the most complicated watercooling project among all the previous projects, but just imagine the rewards of your hard labor. Everything fits snugly inside the case, say goodbye to bulky fixtures and let’s face it, it’s much better at dissipating heat than aircooling it.

The hardware mod made use of:

  • Both CPU (Zern GPU block) and GPU (Koolance GPU-180-H06 block) watercooled with internal Tank-o-Matic mini reservoir, 12v thermaltake pump and DD fill port on the plexi window.
  • 90mm radiator grill mounted to the plexiglass with 4 thin fans
  • Passive heatsinks on many internal chips
  • Tinted plexiglass on one side of the case
  • Custom cut DVD window
  • Custom painted case
  • Blue and UV LEDs all around the case with external switch to disable/enable.
  • Blue ring-of-light, silver power button
