By putting all the weight on the bottom of the board right?

Tsk tsk.

What the hell is wrong with you? Go do the same thing with plastic bricks, then criticize me for every little detail.

find a way to secure the nuts on the motherboard, so you can unscrew the bolts without losing the nuts so you can change parts and such

Ah Yes, computer modders. some of the coolest people around. I love the idea that you want to create a hardrive oflegos and I must say that you are doing great. I mod computers myself and gaming systems too. really all electronic devices in my house are modded.

this is a mod I did to my Gamecube a few years ago when i was a bit newer to modding. I had tuned the Centru/SPU Central Board so that when my Gamecube turned on it would have these special features.

Mer, I used to have some respect for you, now you're just a fag, piss off and troll somewhere else.

As for what the OP is doing, that's pretty sick dude, I'd really like to see more progress on this thing. :)

I love this project, it's simply awesome.

I just hope you're going to glue it toogther, at least the fiddly/important bits, since a small impact, of say, some moron putting their coffee down on it or whatever would ruin all awesomeness.
I also know that this, while epic, will never work for me, since I have a set procedure for dealing with computer crashes:

1. Computer crash.
2. Emotional crash.
3. Crash computer into foot. Hard.


...and with that post, people of Britain were so surprised that "tea was spilled, crumpets were dropped and monocles everywhere popped out in shock."

One problem has me going, though.

Do you ever plan on opening this thing ever?

Wow, I always wanted to build my own computer case but would have never though of legos. This is actually quite interesting.

Good idea man I hope it works out and doesnt go wrong. Perhaps when you are done you could instruct us on how to do this ourselves?

Dude, seriously, sell this to the nearest Lego office or something. They'd probably offer you a job building cases for every PC in the building.

ESI is bullshit. Cases like these have been made by reliable, brand name manufacturers.

Christ MM, stop being an elitist bitch.

Anyways, I think the CD drive is BY FAR the most intricate part of the case.
