Theory | By Hannes


Creativity is neither a strategy nor a form of sublimation to deal with madness. Madness is merely creativity thwarted by society, a label created by society in order to imprison its visionaries.


A brief introduction, an epilogue to the next air-cooled construction. Theory | By Hannes will be clearly inspired by Carl Axel Olsson's work. He is a person who meant a lot for my creative develpoment and by that also had ā great impact on the person I am today. I will show off some of his works and then also use them in my design of the construction process. I will include much of his style in this building as a tribute to a great mentor.

The case itself, I will not do much with the outside, Lian Li has just about exact perfection in this chassis, but a lot will be done on the inside. Firstly, I'll powder-coat the inside black. I will be working a lot of revising their designs to something more clean, and then implement the art that I and many others Swedish "västeråsare" grown up with.

I have some problems with the color scheme of this building and because of that I will not talk much about it yet, but if you have any creative suggestions and I'll be more than happy to hear from you, and reflect a bit about them. My problem is so far that you can't get the sleeves in the color I want to use with this chassis. Sleeve is something that I've seen as a must so far in all my builds, maybe it's time to look for other methods. Or maybe someone *cough* Nils *cough* have some insight on new colored sleeves.

Traditionally, the enthusiast building always either incredibly impressive with cut-out details or elaborate engravings, or they are classy and almost minimalist with an incredible balance between what is necessary and what is "just for show" with millimeter performance and execution. I will not go away quite as far from it as I've done with the Echo, it is enough with the love-hate relationship between it and me to last a lifetime. No, I will keep the building clean, but also include the influences that I think is needed in computer-building: Sculptures. Sculpting the chassis is something I wanted to wait for until my Singularity build, which will be in an V1010 or V2010, but it's something I think I can implement in this construction aswell, by the inspiration of Carl Axel Olsson's art.

The build is sponsored by Asus, among others, so please enjoy.

Even tho I'm quite a bit into the project, there is still work to do, and you guys still have a chance to inspire me. I'm still on some sketches for modifications to the case and I have a custom designed fan being made for this project aswell.

Even tho my sketches suck, you'll probably be able to see what I have in mind. These are going to be stealth mounted, so that they look like they almost floats in the case. Also, ignore the brand on the SSD's. That was just the first template that I found.

As I said, I'm also working on a custom fan. Actually, I'm doing the design and [WP@]Wolverine is doing the manufacturing

Second Design! I Believe that this is a way better design and will flow better with my build aswell. Making it a bit more dimensional. :-)

These are the final pictures before I rip my case apart and do my modifications to the 5.25" bay. Please enjoy and stay tuned for more stuff. I hope you'll like it. :-)

I'm using a simple system camera, Nikon D40 with a 18-55 objective (lens?). I'm only using natural light, but not direct sunlight. So you should be in a bright room, but not with actuall sunlight shining directly on your computer. I also use a tripod and a 2 sec delay so I can take my shaky hands off the camera. That's my quick photo 1 on 1.


I can't decide if I'm more drawn in by your photography and presentation of the build or the build itself. :D

Either way, I'm really thankful! :-D


its awesome!!!! wow how long did it take you to make the build and also take this awesome photos??

Well, I started this build in oktober 2010. I'll finish it this May. :-)
