These parts have been in the works since March 2015. Our Canadian Dollar has taken a poop, so that doesn’t help my build much either. On the positive side, I custom painted some parts of the case with a Ford Cardinal Red Automotive Paint, which gives the Air 240 a unique look.
Over the last couple of years I've waited patiently for sales on an upgraded CPU heatsink & run through a couple GPU upgrades, starting with a Radeon HD6750, followed by a GTX 950, and finally an RTX 2060, which marks the completion of the build, at least until I decide it's upgrade time.
What does the name KRySTaLoGi mean?
I decided to play the name into the red, black, and white color scheme. This is the first PC I’ve put together with an actual build long so I wanted to give the PC a name.
English name from the vocabulary word crystal = 'crystal (clear, colourless glass)' which derives ultimately from Greek κρυσταλλος (krystallos) = 'ice' Old Norse logi = 'flame, blaze'
The system is cooled with ice-inspired whites, while the red represents fiery poops performance. Black is pretty common among computer hardware, so I didn’t bother to include that in the name. I have this terrible love for VoWeLCaSe lettering when it comes to naming hardware devices, so I put my own spin on CrystalLogi, removed the double L’s, and threw a K up front in place of the C. Done. Next.
