    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 :)

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

    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.

    [​IMG]


    Ordered UV and blue ledstrips.

    And some extension cables.

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

    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.

    the case does look good....
    Is the case made out of Alu and plastic parts ?
    It looks like you could make a nice lanbox out of it :p

    It's like 95% acrylic, only the corners are hold together with steel parts and the IO panel / PCI slots are aluminum.

    Saw the thread title and new it would be another great build by L3p, wasn't disappointed, looks fantastic. Wish I could do a 'small' build that contained a GTX690!

    Thanks guys! Hope you'll enjoy this 'small' build :)

    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 :)

    [​IMG]


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

    [​IMG]


    And some extra aluminum CSQ logo's.

    [​IMG]


    And the watercooling products.

    Thanks! They're indeed cool guys : )


    Another update with lots of pics.

    First fitting the hardware.

    [​IMG]


    The idea to have the GPU in sight.

    [​IMG]


    By using a PCI-e extender.

    Lovely evening of 'blocking' by candlelight.
