Modded Xbox Controller

It seems that in the quest to fit in, someone has modded and Xbox 360 controller to have motion sensitive capabilites, mimicking the abilities of the Sony SixAxis and the Nintendo WiiMote. Adam Thole, the creator of this mod, spent two and a half weeks to create and perfect the mod with 2-axis capabilities. This was made possible on a wired controller, but Adam reports that he may do a version 2 that works with a wireless controller, so it isn't impossible with the wireless controller apparently. He also offers in-depth steps that he used to accomplish his mod on his website, if you'd like to give the mod a go yourself.

So what do you think? Think it would be a good time using the controller, or is it just a gimmicky add-on that no one will ever use anyway? Tell us in the forums...

After going a little nuts...



I decided to settle things down and get it stable as a decent speed, without having a huge temp problem... So I opted for:


Now apon doing all of this, I started up my cancer research program and within 20 secs one of the tasks failed for some reason (I thought orthos was meant to be the bees knees??) anyways, here's my idle and load temps:



Now when I try and do a memory test (sandra etc) it came up with my timings being rather loose (5-5-5-15) so I've looked through CPU-Z and I saw my memory should be able to do 3-3-3-9 at 200Mhz. Well, here's a screenie of it at 4-4-4-12 as when I try the lower one, my board wont boot and says it has a bios error, please put in a floppy in to re-flash the bios.. (After this happened, my heart sank, but now I just clear the bios and start again..) Anyways, the screen shots...



Now am I doing something very wrong or is something set up wrong somewhere as I still think I should be able to get faster timings than what I got..
Can anyone please help me??

Try running the RAM @ the lowest divider and setting the 1066 strap on the NB

What volts u using? Try 2.1-2.2 maybe with a fan over the top of the RAM.

Make sure EIST and thermal throttling are off

What cooling are you running?

The volts on the ram is 2.1v..

How low do I go down with the multiplier to see how far I can go with my ram??

I think the throttling etc is on still, but I will check.

CPU cooler is a Zalman 9700 :)

I'd throttle down to 6 to test the RAM then the FSB too
