The design for my custom build named Zeuligan, after my gamer name alter ego, needed to be something different. As a personal custom gaming PC the self-title seemed logic. The design started with the thought of creating something different, something mature.
I wanted to design a custom PC that could pass almost for a furniture or a design item. As my girlfriend is interested in interior design and our home is very Scandinavian with white furniture, light wooden floors, grey walls and soft accents I decided to design a computer originating from that.
It became clear, very quickly that there aren’t many options for motherboards other than black, carbon or RGB. I decided to combine my initial plan for a pure white and grey build with black components. As discussed in my pervious post about choosing the right case for custom water loop and high modularity I went with be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900. As it’s pure black I needed to start to plan how to incorporate white and grey. With the underlying challenge, how to sort the furniture, organic feeling framed in a Scandinavian designed custom computer.
After several trips to all the local hardware stores, furniture and paint shops I stumbled upon an idea. Well, more stepped on a piece of cloth on the floor, literally. It was a piece of black leather. It’s funny, how a coincidence like that, sometimes forms a whole project. I quickly concluded that vinyl would be too flat and I needed the real feel of fabric. During a successful trip to my favourite local hardware and DIY store I found real fake white leather (no animals got hurt during the creation of this build). It was perfect! It felt like the real deal with a very moderate price tag.
I picked up some nice paint as well. White, black, grey both in satin and glossy finish. I had used 2 cans of white spray paint already.
Please comment your thoughts on this build with be quiet! Dark base Pro 900 and follow me for updates. /Love Zeuligan
