I built the entire casing with LEGO bricks, there isn't a single screw, or soldering, or glue. It's completely deconstructable.
Only LEGO bricks, there isn't a single screw, or soldering, or glue. Completely deconstructable. 200x200x105 mm. 4-core and 8 gigs of ram under 150W of total power consumption. It sports a discrete GPU, a slot-in DVD and 2 disks. The front buttons are blocked with LEGO bricks from behind, so is the DVD burner, and the backplate fits the LEGO bricks I used to assemble the back. The DVD eject button is also a LEGO brick, though i haven't figured out (yet) how to prevent it from falling when the computer is moved. The DVD is lifted from the rest by a LEGO slab(the blue one in the last pic), and the slot-in feature is preserved by flat-head bricks on the lower side of the LEGO cd-dvd slot, and it's working fine. I removed the discrete card bracket, and closed with LEGO the Displayport, leaving VGA and DVI accessible. The screenshot shows the temperatures in idle, this is just me losing it one sleepless night few days ago, so the air flow isn't enough to endure long work sessions, but everything stays put and the computer can be turned on, used and turned off without any issue. Next step will be mono-coloured bricks, and better air flow. Stay tuned :)

I don't like the multi lego colors I would have stuck to a single color or at least kept the colors linear with each other otherwise it reminds me of lego stuck together like what I remember from elementary school. yuck

if you read the description, i'm going to rebuild it with one color, i, for one, don't like so much the effect standard lego/lego technic either (full brick/drilled brick)... i did it quickly, with the bricks i could easily put my hands on, that's why it's "version 0.6" :) i posted it because of the idea that stays behind, and that won't change so much with next versions :)

finally something new in this gallery,(not new overal but here).
I appreciate absence of internal colourful lights, absence of screws -thats new here- absence of ATX PSU. I like very much small sizes of the rig.
Maybe you should make your photos once again, these look nasty, but i feel this case is perfect.
