When it comes to custom made luxury PCs, we drag our memories back to the Maingear and Eazo custom editions, both of which focus their central creativity into the aesthetic department. But when it comes to its technical prowess, we would have to give it to the Murderbox MKII custom PC’s, which just might be the finest of what there is to offer in the segment of high-end computers. With each of them being modeled as a one-off piece, it gives the high-end gamers and multi-media users the opportunity to recreate design and technology, just like the way they wanted it to be.
The team at Murderbox has announced the upcoming launch of the murderbox MKII case which is expected to sell for around $1,200. This would include the external body mostly, where the user can install his/her own internal hardware to make it operational. Complete, custom built machines on the other hand are in the price range of $10,000- $15,000 where customers receive a unique and one-of-a-kind creation that's ready to plug in and go. One such example could the sample shown here, created by the likes of Charles Harwood, Callen Magier, and Janik Merz, which sees Chrome variants being used all over; the external chassis is a special variety of monochrome. This gives the PC a very smooth finishing, with an eye-appealing matte texturisation, and the exposed inner skeleton gives it the rugged feel in general.
In order to cater to its niche mass of customers, the company had adopted a rather different strategy to promote the business. Instead of spending hoards of cash on traditional forms of advertising, the team at Murderbox has been actively involved on social networks and online forums which are known to be active on a daily basis. Through them, the thorough interaction is undertaken to gauge what they actually want, and desire within their customized offerings. This is perhaps the reason, why each one is truly one-of-a-kind when it comes to Murderbox, even the MKII. We await a truly whacky one from them!
