The Red One
by Johan Nyman

The Red One was Johan’s first real project, before that he had only made regular PC-builds and smaller modifications, this time though he went all in. This project was also his high school project. It all started with a old Coca-Cola bottle box, Johan completely re-made the interior and exterior of the box to fit a Micro-ATX system and also look pretty cool.

Johan is very proud of the little powerswitch made of a Coca-Cola bottle cap.
