I was asked to build a stylish PC by be quiet! for the booth at the 2019 Computex exhibition. The base of this project was totally up to me, so I went ahead and used my favourite chassis, the Dark Base Pro 900 rev.2.
I decided that I wanted to strip the anodizing from the brushed aluminium, and paint the chassis white. I also wanted an accent colour but was not sure what to have. Once EKWB was interested in sponsoring this project with the newly released Quantum linup of products, I thought it would be a great fit to have orange as the colour in honour of EKWB colours.
Lots of mods where made to this chassis, such as stripping, brushing and clearcoating all aluminium panels, painting everything white, modding the inside motherboard tray to open up the chassis, ordering a new clear tempered glass panel so that we could see through the chassis, and creating all new aluminium panels to decorate the inside.
There are also chromed copper tubing used for the custom loop, custom cables which are provided by CableMod to my spec which are held in place by the CoolForce Nanoxia cablecombs. These combs are totally awesome btw.
I hope that you enjoy the gallery. This PC was a blast to build.
Finished project photos first, and then in no particular order are photos I took during the modding process.
