Pure Pastel

The aim of this build was to produce something clean and minimalistic without all the distractions of over the top RGB, crazy case mods, or an over the top configuration. It’s a compact system aimed at the purists out there and given the name of this build touches on so many factors of what we set out to achieve.

The white and blue color scheme is complemented by chrome accents, from the Strix logo on the motherboard to the mirrored PSU basement trim and Alphacool fittings, it all just ties in really well. Custom work on this project features painted components including the 240mm radiator, motherboard shroud, CPU block & GPU block. We have also included a CNC cut bulkhead to fit where the Pure Base 500 front-facing SSD try usually sits, there is a custom GPU support to keep our 2060 nice and steady. For cables, we went with BitFenix custom extensions, the blue really works well with the coolant from Mayhems.
