A popular YouTuber has turned his guest bathroom into a gaming paradise by building and installing a fully-functioning gaming PC out of a toilet.

The popular YouTuber Basically Homeless has successfully converted an ordinary toilet into a fully-functioning gaming PC.

The story was initially reported by, a website dedicated to gaming news. Basically Homeless, whose channel is devoted to bizarre PC builds and other gaming-related content, released a 10-minute video showcasing the delicate and painstaking process of producing his toilet gaming PC. In this video, he states that he attempted the build because he wanted to do "sweaty, try-hard FPS gaming" from the comfort of his toilet.

This custom rig was specifically designed to function not only as a gaming PC but as a working toilet with an inner water tank that can properly flush. In order to accomplish the task, Basically Homeless had to devote several months of preparation, researching plumbing, toilet construction and porcelain cutting. The YouTuber also created a 3D render of the plans, which is shown in the video.

To begin creating the PC, Basically Homeless describes how he had to cut a square hole into an extra-large toilet tank. This was done for the purpose of airflow and so the inner workings of the PC would be clearly visible. A motherboard tray also had to be glued to the inside of the toilet tank to hold the parts in place along with a fan, which was glued inside the top of the tank. To separate the toilet's water tank from the PC parts, a homemade "water-wall" had to be inserted inside the tank with the PC parts arranged carefully outside it.

The PC itself features an Intel 12700 processor and a Geforce RTX 3060 graphics card, and although the parts had to be placed inside the tank with no additional protection besides the water-wall, Basically Homeless claims that he did not check for leaks before installing the toilet in his guest bathroom. The video shows him encountering one small leak during the first test flush, which he remedies using Flex Seal, a type of adhesive spray. This fix would prove successful with the first test flush while the PC is on, which shows the water slowly rising and stopping just below the top of the water-wall as the computer remains undamaged and functional inside. Towards the end, Basically Homeless uses his new build to play Counterstrike, the popular FPS from Valve.

Basically Homeless previously converted a refrigerator and a toaster into PCs. Videos about those builds are still available on the user's YouTube channel.
