Building The Ultimate Xbox One X

– Hey guys, this is Austin, and welcome to the ultimate Xbox One X. Now this has been a very
highly requested video. So much so, in fact, that we got an anonymous letter from Hong Kong giving us some suggestions to include for the video. So with some of those in
mind, let’s get to building. Nick Cage approves. Yes. So everyone’s probably familiar with the wonderful look of the Xbox One X. A.K.A. it’s just a black box. Which is where this comes in. This is going to be a
skin which is going to make our Xbox One X look a
lot like an original Xbox. Would some say it looks like an Xbox One? So, in the picture they’ve
got like the front of it, it’s got like the Xbox logo and stuff. But, this is just a top skin. Clearly wouldn’t happen
if this was dbrand. – [Voice Over] Shots fired! Shots fired! – It’s actually pretty much lined up, I’m slightly off center. So you put it side by side
with the original Xbox it actually doesn’t look so bad. I mean, I know I wasn’t 100% precise but I think it’s close
enough that I’ll buy that. Next up, because we know
just how useful cooling fans and extra attachments are for consoles, we have not only an
intelligent cooling fan, but we also have a cooling
dock with extra USB ports. So we’ve got three small cooling fans, it’s gonna plug in via USB, and to be fair it does give us a USB pass through, so I guess it just snaps
on something like this. I mean it actually does kind of blend in whether this is going to
make any difference at all I am incredibly doubtful of but luckily we have a whole other cooling dock to keep it even cooler for our, whatever it is we’re doing on an Xbox which is gonna make it overheat. Connecting actually is pretty easy. Then we just do that. Wait a minute… So I see that there’s a fan, but where is it pulling air from? There’s no place for it
to pull on the bottom, on the front, on the sides,
why are there three fans if they have no intake or exhaust? What this does give us is
three more USB ports up front. One of the things we’re
going to have to keep in mind with this video though
is that we have a lot of things that are going
to be requiring USB, so making sure that we have full USB 3.0 on as many ports as possible is going to be a challenge. Because a mere one terabyte of storage is not going to be anywhere near enough, the next step is yet
another add-on hub thing. This is going to give us the ability to not only plug in a
full 3.5 inch hard drive, we are also going to be
getting even more USB ports. Oh joy. That’s pretty cool, so it’s actually got a Scorpio on the front,
which would make sense because this is a Scorpio
version of the console, that now has a skin covering all that up. So, people still know we’re cool? So the idea here, it it’s anything like some of the previous hubs we’ve used, is that we’ll be able
to, not only plug in that three and a half inch drive,
so this is going to give us three more USB 3.0 ports on front. Now with a three and half inch drive bay we can go completely
crazy and put basically any kind of desktop hard drive in here, but as opposed to doing
a standard hard drive, instead we have a two
terabyte Seagate Firecuda. So this is going to be
an SSHD which means that in addition to having two
terabytes of capacity, (plastic crinkling) in addition to having
two terabytes of capacity there’s also a little bit
of flash storage on here which depending on the game
might not actually make a huge difference to load time, but at the very least it should be a little bit quicker than
the standard hard drive. One nice touch is that you have everything you need to do this. As long as you have a 3.5 inch hard drive, I do actually think that
this will work with a two and a half inch as well,
but if you have a screwdriver you have everything you
need to put it on the sled. And with that I think we can,
well, just put it in here. So this entire thing is going to operate using the front USB 3.0 port on the Xbox. So as long as we’re able to line that up we’re going to cover up the power button but it has a little push
button, actually it’s clear too, so you can see when it’s on and off. It’s gonna be a little tight,
I guess it will work though. The only issue that I actually
don’t really like with this is that opposed to having
it’s own separate power cable which I will admit is
a little bit annoying, instead it’s actually going to go on top of the current power cable. Considering how much power the Xbox One X pulls through just figure eight cable seems a little sketchy, also our fan doesn’t let this go in all the way. This is falling apart very quickly but I guess that works, right? While three terabytes might be
enough for a normal Xbox One X, this, my friends, is the ultimate Xbox One X which is where this comes in. The Seagate Game Drive with an additional eight terabytes of capacity. Unlike the rest of our accessories this is really straight forward. So instead of attaching
it directly to the Xbox this just needs a USB cable. But it does give us an additional two USB 3.0 ports on the front of the Xbox. To think, I was worried about not having enough ports,
like, five minutes ago. So with just an external power
brick and a single USB cable, we’re now up to 11 terabytes of capacity? Which is where this comes
in: the Samsung T5 SSD. This is actually something we use on a daily basis here at the office. So, all of our videos are
edited off of these T5s, one of the nice things is they come in really large capacities. This one is gonna be a
full two terabytes of quick SSD storage, all running
off of a single USB cable. Almost said USB-C cable, but we
gotta use USB-A for this one. I mean do you need 13
terabytes on you Xbox One X? Probably not. Do you need to build the ultimate Xbox One X? Probably not. Are we done building the Xbox One X? Absolutely not. As far as controllers go, we have a couple of Xbox One Design Lab controllers. These are really cool because you have a lot of customization options
for how the controllers look, and importantly they’re
still going to be the same size, which is important because we
have a dual charging station. I mean, it doesn’t really
look pretty with our Design Lab controllers but now we have two controllers down and two more to go. If you really want the ultimate controller for the Xbox One X though, you want the Duke. So this is modeled almost identically after the original Xbox controller, and while it’s a little bit controversial, some might say it’s, well,
you’ll see, you’ll see. Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. This is licensed by Microsoft even though it’s made by Hyperkin. Wow that looks almost
identical to the original. For context, this is
what a standard Xbox One controller looks like
and this is the Duke. It’s massive. I think you’re definitely going to be better gaming on a
standard Xbox controller, but the coolness of this is just, there’s just no way to get around it. Now unfortunately this is
going to be a wired controller, but thankfully it’s going
to be a really long cable and it is detachable with microUSB. As if all these controller
options weren’t enough we also have the Keymander. This is actually something
I did a video on, like two or three years ago. But the idea here is that this is going to be an adapter that will
turn a mouse and keyboard into what the xBox thinks
is a standard controller. So inside this little box,
well it gets a little bit complicated but hopefully
it won’t be that bad. So around front we have a
mouse, keyboard, and gamepad, I think you actually have
to have all three plugged in because it pretends to be the gamepad but it’s actually passing through the mouse and the keyboard signal. Then around back we have
another series of USB ports for power, PC, game, as well as data, which looks like a eighth inch jack. Oh man, this is, this is a lot. (clock ticking)(ding) Welcome, my friends, to the
completed ultimate Xbox One X. And yes, all of these
cables and accessories are completely necessary. So, to start with we’re
gonna be showing you what the Keymander will do. We are going to be spoofing it with the actual Xbox One controllers. You need to make sure
this is still plugged in. With that, your mouse,
your keyboard, everything attached via USB, we should
be able to play a game. (mouse clicks) Hey it works! I mean it’s really, really slow. Maybe we should turn up the
mouse sensitivity a little. Dude, this actually doesn’t feel that different than playing on a PC. I mean, there might be a touch of latency if I try and move really
quickly, but it’s not bad. Now there’s definitely
an argument to be said that this is going to give
you an unfair advantage, but, I mean, if you want
to be more comfortable playing with your mouse and keyboard versus an Xbox controller,
and you don’t mind dealing with some finickiness,
it is not the easiest thing to set up, and you
do need kinda keep it tuned per game to make sure
it has the correct profiles, but you can download those pretty easily. Why do you have weapons? Okay, well this is unfortunate, this is very unfortunate. Wait a minute… I’ll just use my, no, no. Wait, I got, that count’s as a kill right? I blew up on them. I’m gonna count that as a kill. Dave will be very proud. The Duke on the other hand, well it’s definitely a
much larger controller. Personally, I do think
that the standard Xbox One controller is better, but I mean better is kind of relative, right? The Duke is a unique option. It also doesn’t feel that bad,
so some of the buttons are a little bit weirdly laid
out compared to the newer controllers, especially
stuff like the left and right bumpers which feel kind of
tacked on, but it works. Of course we’re not here
just to play Fortnite. We have 13 terabytes of
hard drives to install a whole bunch of other
games if we want to as well. So right now if you go
into the options we have the internal hard drive, we also
have another 7.2 terabytes from that eight terabyte drive over there, we have the 1.8 terabytes of our T5, and then we have our two terabyte
Firecuda which is in here. They’ll actually show up and once you give them a quick format,
I mean, it kinda works. Unlike a lot of the builds in
the ultimate series that we do this actually all works,
all the accessories are plugged in, attached,
skinned, powered, USB-ed, whatever you want to call
it, it’s all actually working. Now does it make sense? No of course not. Am I going to put links
to every single one of these accessories that we
used in the description? Of course I am.

  1. In 2019 actually Mouse&Keyboard USB Hub is not necessary now, as long as Xbox One supports wireless keyboard and mouse, so yeah

  2. Is this a parody? Yes.. please tell me this is supposed to be a parody. Please add that tag.

    This cannot actually be a serious video..

  3. I loved the building the ultimate Xbox 360 but Xbox one is a bad console my brother was playing the Xbox one x then it burned suddenly it’s the fault of Xbox one so the Xbox 360 is the best 😎

  4. Seriously the xbox one x should have followed the original first xbox design. I mean, XboX one X. Fckn x x x x x x everywea, the OG xbox had a giant X carved into the top of it. Sureley they coulda spruced it up a lil made it a lil more modern looking but kept that x on it

  5. Do you need to make a ton of usb-drives?
    No.
    Do you need an ultimate Xbox One X?
    No.
    Then why do you need it?
    I don’t know.

  6. 2tb? Why not 14tb 7200rpm. I'm assuming the Xbox One X Board doesn't have m.2 support for an Optane Memory Drive to accelerate the 3.5" HDD? Only if that would work…

  7. Looking at the duke remote brings me memory of my first xbox. Its so cool. EVERY ONE LIKe THIS videos AND SHOP AT MR.BEAST .COM AND CHECK OUT ADHD WORLD AND ALSO DONT FORGET TO LISTEN TO ERYS NEW ALBUM AND MSFTSREP 4EVER . 🙂 BYE

  8. If you want to play fortnite with keyboard and mouse and be able to see your keyboard download Xbox insider hub and get on fortnite and bam

  9. Fortnite works on keyboard and mouse without any attachments, and so does a bunch of other games that are Microsoft cross platform. Just literally plug and play

  10. The ultimate Xbox one x and use a adapter to play mouse and keyboard but uses a game that already works with mouse and keyboard

  11. That's just a ton of unnecessary crap. Literally the only 2 things that are even worth doing is a hard drive and fans. Everything else is completely unnecessary and looks ridiculous and takes up way too much space.

  12. Tbh I wouldn’t want to do this yes I’d but extra stuff but not to much I don’t have the money to buy another Xbox one x
