Ok, did I miss some announcement on some bizarre national mod week? I mean the OS XBox Pro (pictured above) is now one of many gadget mods we’ve covered over the last couple of days. All things considered, it could be the millionth custom mod and I would still be just as captivated and geeked out. Some of you may be unimpressed as it appears to be a minor Xbox mod with perhaps some tweaked internal hardware. It’s sitting their in it’s old age all innocent looking. Oh dear reader…how you couldn’t be more wrong. The OS Xbox Pro is damn near an entire Mac Pro stuffed inside of an original Xbox casing. This ingenious and awe-inspiring combination of brains, beauty and creativity is the brain child of Will Urbina. The only requirement Will set out to meet in the beginning was to create a custom mod that was able to run Final Cut Pro. Did he succeeded? Before you check out the video below, try and at least read over a couple of the specs…

  • 2.93GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550s
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT
  • 8GB of DDR3 Crucial Ballistix 1333MHz RAM
  • Highpoint RocketRAID 2640×1
  • 16GB 1.8″ Super Talent MasterDrive KX SSD
  • 2x 500GB 7200rpm Seagate Momentus HDD
  • 2x 160GB 5400rpm Seagate Momentus HDD
  • Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR

Ya, this little mod that appears to be a simple Xbox tweak will clean the clocks of many multimedia/entertainment computers as well as several mid-range gaming rigs. It’s chock full of hardware — something that seems almost impossible given the Xbox’s rather small case (compared to a traditional computer with similar specs.) If any custom mod has ever left any type of motivation building within, the OS Xbox Pro is definitely “the one”. Who wants 6?
