I cannot afford a custom motorcycle or a custom car, so maybe the next best thing is a customised PC. In 2020 I began using the online configurator tool at pcspecialist.co.uk to configure my personal specification.

Once the spec was ready, pcspecialist expert builders assembled the components into the case and put the PC through rigorous testing.

Without having seen it, and based solely on a verbal description relayed by my wife, my good friend Eric Craven christened it “Colossus”. So be it. Form and function in harmony create art.

For the geeks (like me!) here is the spec.:

  • Case:
    CORSAIR CRYSTAL SERIES 680X RGB GAMING CASE
  • Processor (CPU):
    AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 12 Core CPU (4.7GHz/70MB CACHE/AM4)
