    L3p - Parvum



    In December 2012 Justin from Parvum systems asked me if I wanted to do a small build in their new acrylic m-ATX case.
    Since I was kinda busy with 2 other projects I helped him with 2 other casemodders (Kier & K.enny) who wanted to do a new build.
    Justin still sent me a case for the help also on some adjustments to the design.... and in my favourite color scheme




    At the same time I won an awesome prize in the CooledPC contest.
    So made a deal with EKWB I could trade the prize package for products that fit the Parvum case.
    Another small build was born.



    So decided to make some buildlogs, I just loved the case!
    Won't be a huge casemod, more a watercooled build with lots small mods and lots of pics


    Hardware

    Intel Core i5 2550K
    ASUS Maximus V GENE
    ASUS GTX690
    Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB 2133Mhz
    Corsair Neutron 240GB 2X
    Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1300W

    Parvum had some cool teasers before we got them
    (Top one is for K.3nny)




    In the meantime ordered some fans.








    And the mainboard.








    Was able to buy nice gpu second hand. (partly trade/buy)




    In my opinion the best looking reference cooler ever.










    Also probably going to use a Pci-e extender in this build.




    Ordered UV and blue ledstrips.



    And some extension cables.

    Unpacking!
    Always fun

    Here a huge post with the first impression about the Parvum case.














    Justin also sent some extra's, something he wanted to try














    Something that really made me crazy :P
    The case was protected with styrofoam, the case and I were super static loaded....












    The inlayed logo


























    Just had to see those fans running


















    Nice way to find your led board to make some UV shots.




    So soldered it the next day.




























    Personally I like this case a lot cause of the placement for the parts.










    Can't wait

    Here the CooledPC unpacking.
    Was able to arrange with Eddy to change the original prizes for products I was able to use in this Parvum build.
    Better for both of us




    The cpu that will be used for this build was also in the package.




    And some extra aluminum CSQ logo's.




    And the watercooling products.












































    Thanks Eddy & Niko!

    Another update with lots of pics.

    First fitting the hardware.




    The idea to have the GPU in sight.




    By using a PCI-e extender.




    Lovely evening of 'blocking' by candlelight.








    Glad I had such a small mini torx.






    Chip nice and clean.










    Total view.
    (To bad the mosfet block isn't available in acrylic)






    And a nice package from Cooler Master Benelux.











    Bedankt Marco!





    First thing to do ... I thought ..
    Ordered the wrong size fan.




    Still want to see the effect.








    Comes in handy with cases like these.




    Fans mounted.




    And found out the standard EK rad isn't going to fit in the top, had to use a thinner one, even that was close.




    Top fans and radiator mounted too.






    And front.




    Next day the 140mm fan for PSU also arrived.










    Re-drilled the holes cause the standard fan is 135mm.






    White Lamptron replaced with a green Bulgin.
    Heatshrink and sleeve to hide it inside.




    Test with UV/blue leds.






    And hardware inside to see how it looks.




    Also started with a first setup for the loop.




    All still temporary.






    Black instead of blue tape around the extender. (Will be out of sight)




    Next update more sawing and sanding.

    Already spotted some pics online from people polishing their waterblocks.
    Seemed like a great plan for this build too




    All I used for the polishing:
    P1500 P2000 P3000 and wax




    About 3-5 minutes with each for this result.




    So lets do the rest too




    Cpu block also done.




    But was missing something.




    So..












    That's better.




    Wanted to do it the easy way so kept the block and plexi in their place, just used a few pieces of tape to protect.












    Took a little longer cause of the size.




    Also replaced the old bolts for stainless steel ones, also polished those.






    And the switch.




    Result ..










    I'm satisfied.




    And in the spotlight 'spotlight'.

    Small mod this time

    Because I'm using an EK MEM block for this build and since I'm going to use a Dominator Platinum kit tried to make something to keep the Platinum look.




    At the start I wanted a small hole and keep the text.




    But it disappeared after 5 seconds with P1000 .. it wasn't punched in that deep.






    Time for an other approach.






    Just a few hours of filings and sanding










    And done.






    Glued it on a few points.




    I know it's a totally useless mod, specially since watercooling Ram isn't needed..
    Still I like the looks and doing it

    Haha thanks Ray!

    Received a most awesome package from Corsair!
    These products will also be used in a next project.








    For example the lightbars will be for a next project.
    Still wanted to see them assembled for myself
























    You're awesome Gareth, thanks!




    After I helped Acid_Rain with his project he insisted to use his extensions.








    Fine to me .. they look great!



    Thanks Birkir!

    And another update.

    Had a day off at work ...... so back to work




    Finally an opportunity to work with E22 tubing








    After one day of measuring, sawing and filing.




    And ... something I wanted to do a long time .. filling the loop



    First with clear cause of the leak testing.




    After that adding the Mayhems UV laser green.
    (Thought this was cool :P )











    And a little video of the filling + adding UV laser green to the loop with the pump running.
    Must See! :P




    Also ordered some extra ledstrips.




    On to the next, maybe last update

    And here the last update before I upload the final shoot

    Did some last updates/add-ons on the ledstrips.




    Also completely tested and had the system running for a few days.














    Also made some photos without all the UV





















    When I brought it upstairs something came in mind for the final shoot.
    Why not use the reflecting glass panel from the previous/future project
