The Dark Base Division Gaming PC: Build Breakdown

We’ve been waiting for The Division 2, and now that it’s finally here, we put together a build worthy of the SHD to celebrate. This be quiet! Dark Base 700 case was heavily modified to give it a post-apocalyptic vibe, with reactive lighting from Thermaltake helping to accent the orange and white Division color scheme.

Powering the Dark Base Division PC is a 9th Gen Intel CPU with a Dark Rock 4 CPU cooler also from be quiet! keeping the temperatures nice and low. An EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC BLACK GPU is on graphics duty, making sure war ravaged Washington D.C. is rendered in all its glory.

The Division 2 from Ubisoft is finally here. To celebrate the release of this post-apocalyptic loot shooter, we put together a PC designed for the Strategic Homeland Division.
This… is the Dark Base Division gaming PC. But before we show off the finished build, here’s how it all came together.
The Dark Base 700 White Edition case by be quiet! was where we started. This color is a limited edition, but the white and orange accents and customizable interior were exactly what we were looking for.

The Dark Base 700 comes with three Silent Wings 140 millimeter fans already installed, modular options, and plenty of great cable routing choices. But that was before the Dark Base was recruited into The Division. Now, it’s a totally different animal.

This SHD Phoenix Logo was made from a custom, hand cut stencil. After the logo and lettering stencils were placed on the case, a layer of acrylic paint was applied.

The outside looks like its seen battle, but the inside of this build tells another story. These Riing Trio fans from Thermaltake bring to mind ISAC, the intelligent System Analytic Computer that assists agents in the field. The glowing rings represent the shoulder-mounted ISAC units worn by the elite SHD agents of The Division.

Running this beautiful gaming PC is an Intel Core i5-9600K CPU in a ASUS PRIME Z370-A II motherboard. The K designation means this 9th Gen processor is overclockable, so a powerful cooler is important.

We went with be quiet! for the CPU cooler as well, and decided on the Dark Rock 4. The Silent Wings 135 millimeter fan makes almost no audible sound, and the high cooling performance via six copper heat pipes ensure the CPU will run nice and cool, even when under a heavy load.

The Division 2 is a beautiful game, and to make sure we took advantage of that, we decided on an unusual GPU from EVGA.
This is the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC BLACK. It’s a bit on the small and thick side, as EVGA wanted to provide options for those of you with horizontal clearance issues. This 2.75 slot graphics card uses a taller fan hub and a larger heat sink, paired with a single fan to keep that RTX chip nice and cool, despite the smaller horizontal surface area.

Between the be quiet! case mods and the detailed lighting, the Dark Base Division is a perfect PC for experiencing The Division 2. Check the links below if you want to put together your own Division inspired build, and feel free to share in the comments.
