Hi I want to install my ps2 into a pc case along with my xbox...anyone know of a tut or site to help me along?
Nevermind I'm allready Done!
Check it out!
why do you need a tut?
just take the plastic cases off the ps2 and xbox with LOTS OF CARE that theres no way for them to short circuit with the metal pc case! i suggest putting plastic lining inside the pc case.
just put a power splitter inside etc.. but why do all this? you would need 2 power switches etc.. and it's not as if it would work like a universal system :crazy:
The xbox is already in the case,There is lots of extra space so I want my ps2 integrated aswell, I want a tut because I want to see what others have done!
techtv did a bunch of all in ones
Yoshi's box or something
why can't you just leave those cases alone rather than opening those consoles and putting it on a bloody PC case there's no point of doing that, u trying to make a time machine or something... and anyway if u don't like the cases, it might be an idea to just do a make-over on those cases like putting a Pokemon Logo on ur PS2 or stuff a picture of Elvis presley on the Xbox
Good question..I have two answers.Quote:

1..Gearing up for the next gen consoles coming very soon...Xbox/Ps2 are pretty much on their final cycle...I also plan to add my Dreamcast...possibly my gamecube to this case...And I'll tell you right now..it'll be better than any Yoshi-box I've ever seen.
2..I am expecting my first child in the next month...My wife figured I should clear the clutter..I agreed.
I really don't care much for Pokemon nor Elvis...But thanks for your input.Quote:

i think what we're trying to say is that the case is actually not going to clean up anything...
you'll have 4 power sources, 4 mobos, 4 controller bays, a crapload of controllers hooked up, and one hell of a time rigging it up to A/V. you would need the really big 5 or 8 system A/V switches in the box too and a way to switch power to the different PSUs along with a way to turn on power to each individual console.
the worst problem would be drives.. PS2 DC XBOX and GC is 4 disc drives, 2 front loading 2 top loading...
honnestly, if i succeeded in puting it all in a pc case, i would seriously hide the insides and not have any portholes because thats gonna be one hell of a wiring job :wow:
hehe nah helltick your idea is very cool :) how many spare cdrom bays do you have left? do you have your xbox switches and controller ports mounted on the panel behind your door of the case?
do you have most of the xbox hardware mounted on the floor of the case / above the pwoersupply, or wherever?
i take it there is enough space to fit... i would recommend mounting the CDROm aseembelly and the whole ps2 into the TOP section, maybe in a few drive bays, you might have to move your cdrom and/or xbox hardware for this...
you will also have to consider cooling. i would reccomend water cooling for the pc + ps2, then independant cooling for the xbox...
otherwise fan cooling could present a noise issue.. my case has 7 fans cause i can't offord a water pump and blocks so it's very noisy.. if you turn all the fans up to high, it sounds like a vacuum cleaner (esp the CPU fan.. i really have to get a silent one now that i'm over overcloking)
oh.. and GET WIREING LOOM.. the black stuff.. it's your friend! :D
i'll try and get a picture.. *looks through pictures folder*
Like Helltick, I'm also interested in finding a tut on howto put a ps2 into a PC case - and before all you pc-case-haters start babbling about how "ugly" you believe it'll look; I'm only doing it because I want a NO-noise PS2! I'm sick and tired of those noisy stock fans that Sony decided to fit into their console. :mad:
So anyone with a tut-link or ideas: plz post :-pray:
i'm not sure there's anything like a tutorial that anyone could right up.. it would require a lot of improvisation to put a ps2 in a pc case! :D you would have to.. well i don't even know where you would start... the ps2 uses funny mounting screws/position so there wouldn't be a single easy way to do it..
