Hi All, A little while since I've done one of these, but about to embark on a completely new build for the first time in about 3 years! I've been wanting to downsize my rig for a while, but keep performance and options to a maximum within a small footprint. I finally came across Parvum systems who sell some fantastic and rather unique mATX cases. This rig will be based around a custom Parvum Systems S2.0. The standard S1.0 is a case I've been following with interest for a while, but my main concern was being able to accommodate enough radiator power (i.e. I wanted a triple rad in it!). Big props to Justin at Parvum who accommodated my wishes at a very busy time to provide me with a case to my specification! For anyone who hasn't heard of Parvum, they are a small UK company (2 guys) specialising in Acrylic cases: http://www.parvumsystems.com/ For those of you who havnt seen me about here (I dont post so much these days... Kids and all that!) here are a couple of my previous builds from a few years back: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=241936&highlight=TJ07+dual+loop http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=348082&highlight=Obsidian+red So the specs: Hardware CPU: My trusty 3 year old i7 2600k (switched with Haswell E when available) Motherboard: Asus MV Gene (upgraded to new mobo with Haswell E) Memory: 8gb Gskill Ripjaw DDR3 (upgrade to DDR 4 with above) GPU: MSI Radeon R9 290X SSD's :Crucial M4 256gb RAID 0 HDD: Seagate Barracuda 12 3TB PSU: Corsair AX860i The only thing I have had to compromise on hardware wise has been dropping to a single GPU for the first time since the Geforce 6800 series! Watercooling: CPU Block: EK Supreme HF GPU Block: Aquacomputer Kryographics Hawaii with Active backplate Res: Aquacomputer Aqualis XT Pump: Liang DDC Ultra with Petra Top Rad 1: XSPC AX 240 Rad 2: TBC (need to confirm clearances etc) Most stuff is on order, I'll update as I progress. I'm aiming to get the water-cooling started next weekend. So... some early photo's: This arrived on Thursday: For those of you that don't know, these cases come flat-packed: The front panel shows the first little extra Parvum did for me - a slot for a slot loading DVD drive: I asked them to do the floor red for me... and cut a hole in it on one side (all will be revealed!: The roof - the whole case has been extended by about 60mm to accomodate a triple rad in the roof as well as a 240mm in the front: The extension will also help with space in the PSU compartment for fitting the DVD and general cable management. Assembly: Midwall/Floor: Back panel: Front Panels: You have to install the fan's before adding the black front panel, as it acts as a cover to hide the fan screws and keep the front nice and tidy All done, with the exception of the glass for the window - leaving that until the very last thing to avoid any chances of scratching it! Look out for updates over the coming week or so!
