LEGO’s tricked-out Halloween gaming PC is a freakishly fantastic RTX-powered treat

While you’ve been stocking up on candy to hand out to deceptive visitors and decorating your home with Halloween decorations, Lego has been busy assembling an absolutely delicious and spooky gaming PC out of tens of thousands of bricks. It’s a unique design, so you can’t buy it for yourself, but with enough time and skill, there’s nothing stopping you from recreating it (except maybe a lack of a blueprint) .

If you do, be sure to show us. In the meantime, feast your eyes on what LEGO and its team of PC modders have put together…

“Just in time for Halloween. This monster, unique, brick-built gaming PC is giving us chills,” LEGO said in a Twitter post.

The minute-long music video takes us on a tour of the haunted mansion and some of the components inside. At first glance, you wouldn’t even know there’s a powerful PC sitting inside, let alone one with a closed-loop liquid-cooling setup. It looks like a spooky multi-story LEGO house from a horror movie. However, the exterior easily opens to reveal the gruesome guts.

It took over 20,000 LEGO bricks to put together what is essentially a custom PC case mod. LEGO says it has an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card and an Intel Core i9-12900KF processor (Alder Lake), and while both are now next-gen components, they’re still a powerful one-two combo for gaming and content creation.

We also spy a preview of two 16GB Corsair Dominator DDR5 memory modules with RGB lighting (for 32GB of total RAM), though LEGO doesn’t specify the data rate. There is unfortunately no mention of the make and model of the motherboard either.

Beyond the basic components, the video tour highlights the custom cooling loop with at least two visible radiators and green coolant. Green braided cables also permeate the build, as do several horror-themed scenes using various LEGO characters and decorations. In one such scene, a Frankenstein monster holding a vial of green liquid stands in front of an LCD screen that displays various system vitals, including CPU and GPU times. The screen also reveals that there is 1TB of total storage evenly distributed across the C: and D: drives.

Oh, and if in doubt, LEGO confirms that “yes, it can run Crysis”. Good stuff, but this mod begs for games like Resident Evil 7 and Dead in broad daylight to play on it.
