Well, it could be cool.. until you bump it and it collapses all over your hardware. If you could find a good way to make it solid enough, it could work. It might be tricky getting the airflow right, though.

True, But Adding fans would be easy.

The support thing is what is hindering the design.

All of them are metal except the last one, and it isn't plugged in.

I'd say it would be really cool, but you'll probably have to find some special metal Legos. I'd bet they're selling those now...

I made a really cool lego computer tower about 9 years ago(by my own standards, it was quite lame compared to the ones mike has posted). It was a PII, and I didn't have enough of one colour, so it was an unorganized rainbow!

Problems I came across:
  • Heat...I chose the PII because it gave off little heat, but some of the CPU's from the time (certain AMD Athlon's) would have just melted the lego pieces if they weren't positioned right.
  • Case is no longer grounded metal. This is both a problem with accidental ESD shock to a component (bad for me, cause I had a habit of working on systems live :p). Also, it didn't shield any of the RF interference from the computer, so I lost some lower channel clarity on my TV...
  • Lego comes apart easily. This is the obvious one.

Airflow is easy, just remember the golden rule: air comes in one end, and goes out the other, usually close to the hottest component (ie: in the front and out the back).

Gawd, I wish I took pics of it :(

use legos and heat resistant glue. There are long flat pieces that you can use for the top and bottom. It'd be hard to make the spaces to hold all the hardware and the mobo and stuff, but you could make the outer casing.

Those first ones are pretty ugly and bland...Those K-Nex ones look a bit more eye catching

Since 1963, Lego pieces have been manufactured from a strong, resilient plastic known as acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).

No. Lego is plastic. Stop talking shit.

Given the presence of unquestionable evidence on my part; I've only to deduce that you're trolling.
Post reported.
Have a nice day.
*Sighs*

He meant that the ones that are metal have the metal inner case of most desktops inside the lego shell that seruonds them.

And would people find out WHAT A FUCKING TROLL IS before accusing people of being one.

>_> You did not address that part you addressed the first half of the post.

And No their are not metal lego's you are right on that part. But you were addressing the Part of the post that was addressed at the fact that the lego towers had metal computer towers in them, and the legos were
put around them.

Nowhere did Point Blanc say that. He said, and I quote, "All of them are metal except the last one". To which I responded that all Lego Blocks are plastic. His response was a shameful one word reply that represented only to troll.

Point Did I hit the nail on the head or was I wrong? Because I doubted that you ment that all the legos were metal.
