Default Xbox 360 chassis from Lian-Li

Is your 360 out of warranty? Don't want to risk another pesky RRoD? This new case may be the solution that we've all been waiting for.

It's shipping at the end of this month for $150. Steep, I know, but I'm buying one. It even has tube holes in the back if you want to watercool it.

Very cool idea, i wonder if it makes it quieter after the switch over. that'll be the big kicker

I'm not normally into this sorta stuff, but this is very appealing to me. Depending on the price... I might do this.

The article I read said that the price was $149.95 x_X....which is a bit much for a case if you ask me. My understanding was the the RROD problems were due to a flawed design of the heatsink in that it became separated from the GPU due to warping? If this is true, how would a new case remedy this problem?

For one thing, the DVD-ROM drive in the 360 is located right above the GPU, which would cause some heat issues. Also, the case is incredibly compact and does not get the airflow it should.

Giving the 360 a bigger case would help cool the system down quite a bit.
