Hi I'm kind of new to the forum though I've used it for years now when I needed answers. Now it's time for payback. I'm in the process of upgrading my X-48 and I would like to share my experiences with you. Since the X-48/X-48mkII (from now on X-48) is actual a Windows XP computer I have been wondering if I could upgrade it as so. I have a background as IT-engineer and a musician in my spare time and want to get the best out of my equipment. The plan: Add better airflow to the X-48 Lower the noise level of the X-48 Add larger and faster HDD (hard disk driver) to the X-48 Add more and faster RAM (memory) to the X-48 Add faster CPU to the X-48 Each step will be explained in this thread and you are welcome with ideas and comments.
