I also recived the 35mm fans and installed them on the back, they look really good!

Guide to connecting VGA to xbox 360 for tomas02

January 9, 2011
Here is how to wire it up:

Here is the instructions for all of the pins:
Purple Wire - VGA PIN 5 - GND(Important:goes to toslink pcb as in picture)
Black Wire  - VGA PIN 12 - DDC SDA
Brown Wire - VGA PIN 9 - +5V (Important:goes to toslink pcb as in picture)
Red Wire - VGA PIN 15 - DDC SCL
Yellow Wire - VGA PIN 13 - H/Sync
White Wire - VGA PIN 14 - V/Sync
Red, green, and blue go to pins 1,2 and 3 (6,7 and 8 are their grounds)
I also includes a switch between pins 21 and 22 so I could switch of vga and use hdmi.
Use Red/black and White/black for audio leads!

 This all works for me, so it should work the same for you!


Hope this helps!
