The LEGO PC 1.0 Keeps Your Computer Looking and Running Cool

Modder gi0v3 has boldly gone where no modder has gone before with his LEGO PC 1.0. The LEGO PC 1.0 is a computer case made entirely out of LEGO blocks.

Encasing your computer in a box made of LEGOs may not seem like the best idea, as computers in closed boxes are prone to overheating; however, Gi0v3 was genius enough to drill holes into his LEGOs to increase airflow.

The result is a computer case that not only looks cool but is probably more efficient at keeping its components cool than a high-end case -- a good thing, as this computer is running some serious hardware. According to Technabob, the Lego PC 1.0 has an "AMD Athlon II 605e quad-core CPU running at 2.3GHz attached to an ASUS Mini-ITX board. It’s fully-outfitted with USB3, SATA3, Bluetooth and WiFi, and has 8GB of zippy SODDR3-1333 RAM. It’s also got a pair of Samsung 250GB hard drives, a slot-loading DVD-RW and an ATI Radeon HD 5570 GPU." Consider your world rocked. Stats for Toy Brick PC Cases Trending: Older & Chilly
