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

That's the best project I've seen in a while, hope it turns out as awesome as I'm imagining in my head right now.

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.

Christ MM, stop being an elitist bitch.

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

Don't use words that you don't understand.

Stop being a fucking idiot by building your own PC case from shitty legos that will melt?

Stop being a fucking idiot by trolling with an arguement that has no basis.

Upper range of high end parts: 80C
Melting temperature of plastic: ~180C+

I'm adding a fan and vents that the original case didn't have. Just because the building material itself insulates doesn't mean the computer will overheat. How much heat do you really think the case itself dissipates? The heatsinks on top of the more powerful microchips disipate the heat. And as you can see by the crappy aluminum block on top of the cpu, there obviously isn't much heat TO be dissipated.

That's going pretty well, just make sure you spell LEGO in all caps, as LEGO is very anal about the proper spelling of their logo, and have actually mailed people about it.

your the fucking idiot.

if you hate this idea so much, do something BETTER, that we will all marvel at. But until you do that, shut the fuck up.

There is no way the parts in this will melt lego. So take your bullshit arguments elsewhere.

I swear, if you want to flame someone for doing something which is a pretty good project then fine but until you do something which is better then NO ONE is going to listen to you. I don't see you giving good advise or congratulating him for his hard work.
Listen to shreddys advise. A piece of Lego will melt at over 500 degrees, now i doubt his computer will get that hot, when Lego pieces are hollow so do not trap heat.

I agree with you 100%, the lego will not melt, and he cannot be taken seriously until he does something as original as you.

Why not make a screen as well?

Wow, arguing over whether it will melt or not.

Anyway, looks good so far, bookmarked.
