Now that is cool!

I don't know about the prices he was quoting for that build though. Seemed way too low.

So awesome
I imagine his mobos aren't top of the line, they only need to be small and overclock. That's ~950 for the proccys, maybe 300 for the mobos...
2-300 for the fans... that's about 1500

And I'm pretty sure he reused some of the ssd's/hd's from the other systems he tossed, and he mentioned a lot of deal searching and promo coding on newegg, so 1800 isn't too bad an estimate

That probably doesn't include Lego/aluminum cost
