In short: Smartphones, handheld game consoles and even laptops allow you to play high-end games from almost anywhere. However, some want outrageously impractical specialized machines for such tasks. This is one of those stories.

youtuber Mostly homeless recently converted a toilet into a gaming computer so he can “just sit and go potty while playing.”

He started by cutting a giant hole in the porcelain toilet cistern to create a window, because what good is a gaming PC (or toilet) without a window to see what’s inside. The tank was divided into two sections, one for the PC components and the other for the actual toilet and water components. A single exhaust fan was added to the tank lid.

The gaming PC consists of an Intel Core i7-12700 processor mounted on an MSI Z690I Unify mini-ITX motherboard, as well as 64 GB of G.Skill Trident Z5 RAM and an Asus Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card. Micro Center, sponsor of the build, also sent a monitor MSI Optix at 240Hz.

For some inexplicable reason, Nick didn’t check for leaks prior to installing the PC hardware, and as expected, the baffle leaked. But don’t worry, Flex Seal is here to help! After draining the water and removing some of the “washed out parts”, liquid rubber sealant was liberally applied. This managed to do the trick and voila, now it worked.

This is an interesting part of the conversation, although a bit rough around the edges. I can’t help but wonder what happened when I cut through the top fan opening and having water in the reservoir that sits so close to PC components without any additional bays seems like a humidity related disaster that’s about to should happen. How long will PC components last in such a humid environment? I’m also curious about how efficient a toilet is with about half as much water as usual.

Have you ever built such an impractical PC? I once built a computer that you could use while lying in bed, but immediately realized that laptops already exist, and I wasted a lot of time.
