Minimalist PC design is becoming extremely popular in modding circles and here's an awesome example - K-limes' CoolerMaster CM690III Modded Edition.

 

 

Featuring an EK-dominated watercooling lineup, this system is powered by an Intel i7 4770k, a MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr and tied together by MSI's Z87-GD65 GAMING motherboard.

 

What helps make this build look so minimal? Alongside almost no cables showing what-so-ever, the watercooling loop is kept as short as possible and all the 'backbone' components are hidden - like the power supply. This means that only the fancy components are put on display, allowing for the design to look sleek and stylish. Planet MODs has further described minimalist design as "choosing high-quality and beautiful material, then let it stand on its own".

 

The full components list is as follows:
