    im new here so dont be too mean. ive been kicking around the idea to do a star wars themed computer. the case im using is an old micron case i had lying around the house. ive already cut a window into it and am contplating doing a lightsaber water cooling system. for now it probally wont be working due to lack of funds but will be ready to go at a latter date. just wondering what everybody thought. ideas would be welcome too. :worried:

    I might have seen the death star or something around these forums. It could have been on other forums though.
    I'm not really a star wars fan, but I would like to see a star wars themed mod. Who knows how cool it would be :)

    Ummm...not to appear dense or anything, but what exactly would "light saber watercooling" be?

    paint a jedi, but instead of painting a lighsaber, make a hole with the shape of a lightsaber, and put a cffl there :p :dremel: :dremel:
