OSX-CUBE Development Box

Standard

Building a box to run Xcode and to perform all other development tasks im doing ATM seemed far away a while ago, however i made a small break through after the recent upgrades of Apple Hardware, i5’s have opened up most newer board revisions to be vanilla bootable. So with the following i was able to start this build:

1x Core i5 650 3.33Ghz
1x GA-H55M-D2H
1x 9800GT 1GB
1x 128GB SSD
1x 500GB 7200rpm
1x 160GB 5400rpm
1x Xcube Case
1x DVD+RW

Current Running OS’s, 10.6.4 Snow Leopard, Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and Ubuntu 10.04 x86

360 Water Cooled with a little JTAG Thrown in

Standard

So i attempted a JTAG a while ago, and to say the least i failed a little cause of a flashing problem. But after i got my hands on a Xenon board and a few NAND tools, and maybe a little water thrown in, i went a little overboard and the result is below.

1 x 500GB internalised disc
Freeboot
Xtreme 1.7 DVD
Custom Dual Water Loop

To say the least a customer case is is order to make it portable, but this may take some time to make.

Damn the world has moved so fast

Standard

Things have been moving so fast , been so busy with smartphone testing, OSX Rigging, Starcraft II Playing and working hard.

Plenty of things to add to the blog later today, have work log of a new project to do with a Xbox 360 and total conversion to something portable and self contained
