I am hrere looking at my case and looking at prices of new cases. I am hopefully going to build a new computer slowly. I already have the graphics card and power supply. When I get my new motherboard, I would usually get a case.
Then I thought, "Why pay $100 for a case when I can make my own... out of legos?"
I could use this old case and cut out the base and any crucial parts, then build around it.
I know there would be a cooling problem, but I could just build holes for fans.
The 2 questions are:
1. Is there anything wrong with a case made out of legos?
2. Is the amount of fans that I can use dependent on the motherboard?
neat idea. i have a box of legos or two...
well, as long as it is sturdy (id glue the pieces together) it should be ok. put in a cpu cooler, and save room for a front/bottom fan and a rear/top fan, and maybe a side fan. they are not dependant on the mobo. go for it!
Well I wouldn't make to many holes as it would ruin the entire design.
Here's my plan
In the front use lego mesh as fan covers(if you know what I mean the ventilated square parts if you have those). Or lego nets or you can try doing the same as this guy. I just wouldn't make plain holes as it looks ugly.
