High performance Lego Computer case mod is one true marvel of geekdom
When we talk of custom-made PCs, having a high-end configuration is a must. But it is one thing fitting all the latest hardware components into a PC case and yet another when it has to be done inside a Lego housing. Have a look at this handmade Lego Computer case mod by Mike Schropp that isn’t just ordinary, rather it is a computer that is good enough for graphics intensive gaming. So, in a way you can call it a Lego gaming computer with highest hardware configuration you can ask for. Mike has been working on this Lego PC for quite some time and being a perfectionist he is, this one seems to be irresistible for geeks.
This cube shaped Lego Computer measures 7.5” on each side and has top-down airflow system for most efficient cooling of components with an attached Noctua case and heatpipe CPU cooler. Cooling is very important for this PC since it has a quite high hardware configuration and plastic casing made from Legos that should not deform due to excessive heat.
The Windows7/8 and Windows 10 PC has the option of choosing from Intel i3-4160 Dual Core, Intel Core i5-4590 Quad Core or Intel Core i7-4790 Quad Core processors. While for the RAM you can opt from 8GB or 16GB options. For storage too there is 120 GB Intel Series 530 Msata SSD which can be upgraded to 250GB, 500GB or 1TB. Plus it has Intel Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and all the ports including 5 USB 3.0, LAN and HDMI ports.
Overall, the PC case mod looks uber cool and with top section that can be customized according to your liking, nothing is left to chance. The eye-catching bit it that this case is made to look like a single Lego brick piece and has LED strip lighting near the top section to give it a very cool look.
