                    Non working? Theres virtually no such thing short of smashing it into a million pieces. If you cant fix it then you didnt try.

                                This just shows you that if a small team like LTT can make a powerful computer in the size of a console large gaming companies like Sony and Microsoft should be able too as well.

                                    This guy bought a sheet metal brake. I have an entire metal & machining shop with thousands of dollars of tools and yet i can never justify to myself the cost in space & cash to buy one.

                                                          So it really isn't the fastest xbox ever. It is just a PC inside an xbox case.

                                                            Two things:
                                                            1) This isn't remotely worth the amount of effort to accomplish.
                                                            2) I cringed every time one of them pressed on the *edge* of sheet metal with their bare hands! That was a slice waiting to happen.

                                                              1) Passion projects are a thing - if something is "worth the effort" is only on the person doing the job
                                                              2) I'm a sheet metal worker as part of my job - if properly deburred and prepped then the chances of cutting yourself on something like this are slim , Alex used to fab offroad buggies as a hobby so it's safe to assume He's well aware of safe metalworking basics - and wit that in mind theres more risk of the Aluminium frame being deformed than anyone getting a bad cut
