Project concept

The project is focused around the idea of creating a computer that is inspired by Scandinavian design and furniture. Black, white and grey quickly formed the color theme and strict and clean lines with light surfaces formed around the Scandinavian theme. Light wood was not included to keep the final project true to technology and not an actual furniture. The strict theme also excluded RGB.

Amazing computer case

It was love at first unbox when the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 case arrived. Such a modular dream with every detail well executed. The quality is just awesome, as to be expected by now from be quiet!

Pure power

As the usage of the computer will be focused around graphic production, CAD, rendering and gaming the choice of GPU was simple. GTX 1080 Ti from ASUS. With the choice of adding a water block the card originally was a Founders Edition.

    Where’d you find the faux leather you used to cover the panels? I’m planning on doing something similar.

      I bought mine in a local furniture store here in Sweden, but I have seen similar quality in places like Bauhaus, Hornbach (Walmart, Sears type of places). Have you decided what case you will be using?

    I’m using the same case but the silver version. I’m still deciding between black/white leather tho. I actually plan to copy a lot of things from your build if you don’t mind, I think it’s awesome.
