    So I've been pretty bored and I've got a spare 360 laying around and decided to put it in a PC case I have. I just started working on it and finally got the board mounted in the case.

    I also had an extra HDD case laying around and pulled the adapter out so I can relocate the HDD. I would like to put in some regular PC heatsinks but I'm not to sure which ones will fit. I did a little research and found that LGA 775 socket heatsinks should fit but I was wondering if anyone knew for sure which ones would fit. I found these:
    at Newegg and was wondering if anyone knew if they would fit on the motherboard.

    Thanks!

    And damn that case is dirty! I didn't realize how dirty it was until I posted the picture lol

    I saw that on here earlier when I was searching for stuff on how to do it but you just have the original heatsinks. I was wanting to add some with fans for extra cooling. This olboard has had rrod several times I was hoping to prevent it this time. Thanks for the pics.

    Ya I'll definitely keep this updated as I move along. I'm thinking I'm gonna order two of those fans I linked to in the first post. At least one for now to test it. Anyone got any info on PC heatsinks that fit and keep the cpu/gpu cool?

    Also infam0us, how did you wire everything for the power button and extend the power cable for the dvd drive?
