5 Xbox 360 motherboard pictures (http://news.teamxbox.com/xbox/8790/Xbox-360-Motherboard-Picture/)

Xbox 360 console is not quiet as people expected, it come with 2 CPU type fans screwed on a huge heatsink. I wonder why it have 4 blue LEDs lights on the motherboard? It nothing to do with the casing. :confused:

It's still beta hardware. Judging from that photos I don't think it will fit into the fancy standard case with that cooler

If it is indeed beta hardware then that probably will be the final version for first hardware revision ready for full volume production start from around end of August next month.

It seems that even the beta kits still come with a dual core PPC970 instead of the custom IBM processor with 3 x PPE. This would explain the larger cooler, since the PPC970 is a much more complex chip.

Lights are for debug purposes.

Enter The Beta (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/636/636018p1.html)

Microsoft confirmed that the beta hardware are the actual Xbox 360 console, it wide and 10% slower, it much closer to what the final hardware will be. One surprise thing is that Microsoft started shipping beta hardware this month, it was delayed 2 months late. I dont know if Microsoft can really finish the final design in a month then start volume production for October/November launch, if Microsoft couldnt finish it then they have to put the beta hardware in volume production the beta Xbox 360 is loud console.

Games developers started received the beta hardware this month, it still early day and still new to the beta hardware. They dont have much time left to debug the games, now they have to clean up the code and go gold in 2 to 3 months. If they not clean the code or unfinished game then it will run slower on the console with a peformance hit.

I think Xbox 360 will have many unfinished launch titles like it did with other consoles in the past.

Don't think it will be a problem at all. XBOX1 looked like **** at its E3 showing - Halo1 running at 15fps. Ended up being a monster. Don't think X360 will be any different.

Microsoft should have a copy of Solitaire installed in every 360 console in case all launch titles are delayed!

Yup yup. I don't think any of those motherboards are from actual beta kits, they all look like pictures I saw before E3. I'm thinking maybe Alpha, especially with those LEDs and giant fans. I'm thinking the final will look most like the ones near the bottom

Yeah 15-20, but personally, none of them look interesting.
