Qui-Gon Jinn: A boy. His cells have the highest concentration of midi-chlorians I have seen in a life-form. It was possible he was concieved by the midi-chlorians.

The Darth Russian: Dark Side Approved

"Master Obi, I've heard rumors that the Empire was developing some kind of 'midi-chlorian generating machine', how is this possible?!" said my Padawan. I looked at him fearlessly, trying not to let my own fear cloud my judment or let him know that I too was surprised and afraid. "So the prophecies have come true" I thought to myself, " Darth Sidious... have you no respect for the ways of the force! I will crush this blasphemous machine".

Meanwhile, in lava ridden Mustafar: "RISE DARTH RUSSIAN! The power of the dark side is needed" said Lord Vader, "We have a long task ahead of us. You must begin the inmediate production of dark midi-chlorians. I've built you to perfection, like myself, to create the new Sith Army of the Empire enfussed with true dark midi-chlorians! Obi-Wan will soon repent for not joining our cause.." 

The Darth Russian is our first Signature PC to feature the latest ni AMD technology. With is powerful FX-9590 and the just released Radeon R9 280X Matrix by Asus this PC will produce dark midi-chlorines forever!  The BitFenix Ronin case makes the displaying of this PC a real conversation piece and a nice desk trophy.  The Darth Russian will be used to play soon-to-be-released games such as The Witcher 3 and is now currently playing a slew of Star Wars games.

Hints for building a similar PC:

  1. The BitFenix Ronin case's bezel can be taken out to give a better view. Make sure to unscrew it, since the screws are hidden; you might think that it's snap-off plastic.

  2. Order your LEDs beforehand if ordering from China since it takes 1-2 months for delivery.

  3. Beware when the Matrix's LEDs turn red, dark midi-chlorines are in  production.
