Hey guys!
Just wondering if anyone has tried this? and could offer any help. My old PSU is pretty basic with no power switch, So I know I am going to need to trip the switch somehow but if anyone has does this or could recommend a TUT that would be great!

Yeah i recently made a PSU for my slim out of a $5 psu on ebay you effeminately wont need a 400w psu the max should be 230w. It turns on normally without any other switches or anything just tap the touch sensitive button and its up and running. it uses a resistor and a transistor and your old xbox psu i will find the skematic for you.

I found the schematics for the psu, if that doesn't work connect a 5v rail along with the 5vSB. My slim wouldn't stay on unless I did this.
