Repurposing Your Millennium Falcon [Pics]

An excellent idea until your fan breaks, the Falcon melts, starts a fire and your house goes up in flames and you die.

@ Trippy

Thanks, I didn`t see that....turns out I misquoted him anyhow. That should have read as: "AAARRrrrrr" with the reverb on the start, which makes more sense anyhow when you think about it :/

Cool, but can it be overclocked to perform the Kessel run in only 1.5 parsecs?

Yeah it`s cool guys I did this, too, and it did end up starting to melt. Tomorrow though I`m just going to toss it in to a tub of ice water when it starts getting too hot.

Yes, but considering the space requirements the computer won`t be particularly fast...

"An excellent idea until your fan breaks, the Falcon melts, starts a fire and your house goes up in flames and you die.
ITS WORTH IT DANGIT!"

I`d very carefully create ventilation holes in the top and bottom. Don`t know that it would have any problems running as is though if the proc doesn`t run too hot.

The motherboard is probably one designed for a netbook--a platform which is already tightly enclosed, with little ventilation, no room for extra fans, and a requirement to keep heat down despite these weaknesses so as not to burn the user`s legs. That seems to be the best way to pull this off without catastrophic meltdown.

Look up the plans for "millenium falcon xbox" and you`ll see how to install your fans. Six 30mm fans will keep that baby nice and cool

The description is technically correct... but there is more of a problem with the ventilation in general. With just the stock fan on the CPU and very few vents in the "case" ... (if any?) ... this thing is pretty much guaranteed to run hot.

This person can say they have a computer in a millennium falcon model... but that`s about it.

Nice touch with the SSD though.

I also like that motherboard. Its nice to see there are some out there that don`t require the 24-pin power cable.

Nicely implemented idea. Not an origonal idea but nicely implememnted none-the-less.

I also agree about the description ruining it. :|

Some of you seem to be surprised at the stupid description. Did you not see who the poster was?

It`d be more epic if the case was a Star Destroyer and Tantive IV was the USB drive...
