    Parvum Extreme MbK

    Parvum Extreme MbK

    Sponsored by:









    Hi fellow casemodders, Kier is back...again

    This time I will start with a great new acrylic case
    Probably you have seen it allready in the buildlogs from L3p and K.3nny, the new Parvum systems S1.0

    The case is individually cut and hand assembled, various colors and custom modifications possible
    When unpacking I noticed the very good quality acrylic (5mm high quality acrylic) ... very hard material to work with, but not impossible, more on this later. The layout is also beautifully engineered.

    The case is available from mid-March @ Highflow Parvum Systems S1.0 White
    And @ http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=CA-000-PS

    How it all started:

    After missing the postman two times it finally happened. A BIG package:



    Very well packed



    Hmm 2??? yes 2 Want to build something extreme.





    My kid really would like to know what it contains and whether it is for him .... unfortunately for him, these are for me



    Little picture with it from the two cases stacked.



    And a warning just in case ...



    A nice thank you letter from the Parvum family





    The black and white case with the following specifications:

    - Materials: Acrylic
    - Colours: Black/White
    - Dimensions (WxHxD): 275 x 305 x 420mm
    - Maximum CPU Cooler Height: 152mm
    - Motherboard Sizes: mATX
    - 3.5" Drive Bays: 2
    - 2.5" Drive Bays: 4
    - Cooling Front: 2 x 120mm
    - Cooling Rear: 3 x 80mm
    - Cooling Top: 2 x 120mm
    - PCI Slots: x 4















    4x PCI slots



    PSU opening



    Air outlet for the PSU



    Front fanholes







    And more 80mm fanholes at the back







    The mATX mobo tray, a hand bent acrylic mid-wall. Provides both case strength and the cable management



    With openings for the cables and possibly tubes



    The second case is slightly different internally and externally then the first original. Because I'm planning some fun stuff with this

    However, both with window



    Front is the same





    Furthermore the second case is empty, because I need only 1 hardware section. It is also slightly different at the back. 2x 120mm fanholes in the middle



    Also there were some nice extras in the package like:

    Case feets





    Some beautiful 240mm radgrills.





    And a 160mm radgrill.



    I also asked for some extra rest material for various purposes.



    Extra mounting stuff.



    Some last shots of the cases together







    To be continued

    I'm liking the case selection and not common....what are your plans with this build once you get it completed? What type of computer are you aiming for with this build?

    And now it's modding time

    The idea is to stack everything. The bottom with the hardware, then the radiators and on top the reservoirs
    So Rads + fans on the original part of the Parvum





    To reinforce the lower part a bit i've placed some aluminum strips. Just to be sure





    Used the existing cubes to mount the next layer.



    On each corner



    Cut some side panels to the right size and an opening for the fans



    Like this



    And cut two pieces black and white. Black has the same same shape as the original front below.
    In this there will come an Asus ROG logo



    Placed the radiators. Still need to make brackets for these



    Also placed the fans



    Looks good allready I think











    ROG logo will be added later



    For the back I have cut 2 panels with fanholes to the right size



    And placed it







    Testing the fans and gives me a nice shot





    And we continue with the next layer



    These will be all around with windows except the back. It will be the same height as the radiator layer.

    I like the ASUS Logo.... It would be cool if it could be raised off of the case to give 3d appearance.....kinda if it was leather with some foam / filler behind it to push out the logo

    imagine how they put a logo on a headrest of car seat

    What type of fans are those?

    So my modding friends time to end this Easter weekend with a big update.

    Asus also joined the party for this build. And they have send me a great motherboard.



    Btw. I have expanded my photo gear so the pictures will look like a bit different than normal

    The Asus Maximus V Gene



    The accessoreis:







    And the beautifull motherboard

    Thanks Sven

    Also placed the EKWB EK-FC7870 onto the GPU's.













    Placed the nice FC7870 backplates







    Time for some modding. Om top of the Parvum I placed the resevoirs, with here and there some acrylic tubes





    The outlets



    The inlets and one of the fill ports



    Everything straight



    And a total shot



    Placed top and mobo



















    Installed the EK-Supremacy. Did some brainstorming for the tubes



    CPU outlet to the GPU inlet





    Then go right







    Placed the pump about as posted on the HDD cage, more about this later









    To hide the HDD/ SSD I have cut some acrylic. Also filed and polished





    Glued together with ACRIFIX









    Just a few more.









    Placed the pump onto the last plate.







    This week I will receive the last panels for the top after this it's time to do some last things
    sleeving and connect all the tubes.

    Grtz.

    Serious craftmanship Very nice.

    Too bad there's no double bottom, then there wouldn't be any horizontal tubing. Maybe a black piece of tubing would work at the bottom.
    And if the plexi, hiding the HDD, was vertical as well, it would 'match' the tubing more I guess...

    That's it

    Thanks,

    What's wrong with the horizontal tubing? this is something i always bring back in my builds The plexi cover, do you mean the 5.25 bays?(The HDD's are now in the lower part of the front)

    Well there's nothing 'wrong' of course...
    But I was thinking it might look better if you keep the overall look (lines) vertically.
    For example in the side view, all tubing is vertical except the bottom one, coming from the gpu.

    And I meant your custom HDD cover yes, the layers of plexi in the lower front, which are now stacked horizontally.
    If they're turned 90*, then the red plexi would match better with the vertical red tubing.

    Just my humble 2 cents

    Oh that is just freaking beautiful. Fantastic job!
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.
