All my previous builds have been black or beige boxes under my desk. After 7 years of running a tiny IT-company of my own I decided I could finally reward myself with something more colorful.
Aurora Borealis is first and foremost my most important business tool. That being said, after a hard day working in front of a computer, it's nice to relax exactly in the same place by spinning up the GPU fans a bit.
I started planning the build in early autumn 2017. I wanted something that is virtually silent next to my head during typical office workloads and can also handle occasional 3D rendering and gaming without sweating.
