Some time ago, I started my first, fully custom PC. Which I named "M1 Abrams".
The build was named after the American battle tank, M1 Abrams. Additionally, the log was mainly revolved around the Corsair C70. Which was a military inspired PC case. The goal of that build was just to have a very capable & durable CAD / Gaming station that I could lug around anywhere.
For reference: https://www.overclock.net/forum/154-c...m1-abrams.html
The new PC will be the "Stridsfordon 90" (CV90 for short), named after the Swedish Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV).
The main goal of this build is to take my existing rig and repurpose it into the new chassis. The nomenclature derives from the chassis of choice this time around. The Fractal Design Meshify C. Given that Fractal is Swedish and the case is smaller and lighter, it all appears to make sense...
The main list of components is essentially the same as M1 Abrams, albeit for a few changes.
