Google and about 4 sec pulled this up...

It's doable. I just would not want the extra heat in my case. 360's put out some btu's hahah


Edit: Sorry, i guess i may have read this wrong but, if you are wondering if you could just put the xbox's drive in your pc and add the correct drivers / firmware and run games on your pc? I believe that's a no. not 100% sure

I'd set up a few fans in there too, specifically for the 360.

Heat would be something I would take very seriously if you are considering this, especially if it's an earlier gen Xbox.

Other than that, I fail to see how this is going to really benefit you in any way.

If the Xbox has water cooling on it then it's no different than having 2 PCs inside a Mountain Mods.
