PC Build Log - What We Rockin'

The brief i gave my self for this new build was; Quiet, Small, Subtle, Powerful.  I no longer want, nore need my computers to be a focal point.  This is not to say i don’t want perfection in it’s build and i can safely say i will spend hours & hours meticulously sleeving every cable.  But more of…i want something that’s sat in a corner, content, smug, unseen, unheard, with only those with scene knowledge who peek inside taking a second to flash a smurk.
