Default [Project Log] PARVUM FORMULA (custom one-off Parvum S2.0)


Hey guys and welcome to my new build log, PARVUM FORMULA!

This is a special build I am doing for a mate of mine and I'm very excited to build in a Parvum case.

Thanks a lot to Primochill and Mod/Smart for offering to provide goodies for this build as well as Icemodz who have been very good to me for a while now. Parvum will also provide some custom accessories for the build.

Here are the SPECS:

Case: Custom Parvum Systems S2.0
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus VII Gene
CPU: Intel i7 4790K
GPU: ASUS STRIX GTX 970 SLI
RAM: 4 x 4GB G.Skill Trident X 2400Mhz
SSD: Crucial MX100 250GB SSD
HDD: Western Digital Green 3TB HDD
PSU: EVGA SuperNova 850W G2 80+ Gold

Cables: Mod/Smart custom sleeved

Radiators: 2 x EK-CoolStream PE 240
Fans: 4 x NoiseBlocker PL-PS PWM 120mm fans, 2 x NoiseBlocker P-P PWM 80mm fans
Pump: Swiftech MCP35X with Bitspower top, pump casing and heatsink
Reservoir: Primochill CTR Phase II 120mm or 240mm Clear
Fittings: Primochill Rigid Revolver, Bitspower angle fittings
Tubing: Primochill Rigid PETG tubing clear
CPU Block: EK- Supremacy EVO Nickel Plexi clear
GPU Block: 2 x EK-FC970 GTX Strix Nickel Plexi, 2 x EK-FC970 GTX Strix Backplate
Coolant: EK Ekoolant Blood Red

Lighting: White Icemodz Custom LED Strips

Other: ModMyToys 4-Pin PWM Power Distribution PCBs, ASUS ROG SLI Bridge


The colour scheme of the build will be black, red, and grey. The case is reverse ATX with a nice windows on top and one in the back to show the SSD. I will also be doing some custom vinyl work on the case.

Here are the renders provided by the boys over at Parvum:









I do currently have the case though I am waiting for another panel before I can showcase it.

In the mean time here are some shots from Parvum while they were making the case









Hope you guys will enjoy this build log!


Cheers,

Alex

They should offer reverse atx with a window on top as a standard case along with the original. It's an awesome look for the case

Hey guys,

I know I haven't touched this build log for a while now but things should start picking up from here.

Here's the case

You can see all the inlays where I will be adding vinyl for detailing




















First time putting together a Parvum case and first time seeing one and I gotta say I am very impressed.

The quality is top notch and the felling of getting the case flat packed and assembling it is just awesome and very easy to do.

It's a very unique and different looking case indeed and the boys over at Parvum have turned my paint drawings into a masterpiece.

Can't wait to start building in this case.

If guys are interested in a Parvum case, now is the time. With the launch of their ITX case the boys are offering a 20% discount store wide, so jump in while it's on .




Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here are some more pics of the case and I also received the motherboard for the build.



























Have to do something about the upside down ROG logo with this reverse ATX layout.



However a big surprise was waiting underneath and seems like I can't just flip the existing badge as that will show this hole underneath.



So lucky for this case badge that came with the motherboard.



All cleaned up, looking nice!



Thanks for checking it out!

Just to let you guys know that this build might be moving along pretty slowly as it all depends on my mate's budget in getting the rest of the components.

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here's a quick look at the memory going into the system. 16GB of G.Skill Trident X 2400Mhz.

Those stickers will probably come off to make the memory fit in with the build a little bit more, it is a good looking kit though.











Love this view from the top window!









Vinyl is on the way for this build so should get the vinyl work done pretty soon.

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here's another update on the Parvum Formula build!

A quick look at the fans and radiators going in the build. You can also see the inside layout of the build with most of the components in, very well thought out with not much wasted space. I love a case in which you can fill every corner!





2 x 80mm fans for the back of the case!







These radiators were purchased second hand, some mounting holes will need to be re-tapped. Think I'm gonna do all of them with an M4 thread.
























Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

We now have a PSU! The EVGA Supernova 850 G2.

I love the textured look of it!

















Need to get the window on in the back here!



Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

I have a quick new update on this project, like I said at the start, this one might take a while so it's going slowly but steady

The boys over at Parvum Systems were kind enough to provide these custom made fan grills that will surely be a nice addition to the build and they also match the rest of the fan mounting holes on the case.

Remember guys, Parvum can make and cut anything out of acrylic and pretty sure other materials too so if you ever need anything custom done, give them a buzz and they might be able to help you out!

Check out the fan grills!











Two are for the 240 rads and one for the two 80mm fans on the back of the case.

Thanks for checking it out!

If you have seen the latest Mod of the Month round over on Bit-Tech, you might have noticed my other ongoing project TOXIC CHROME has been nominated. Please head here to check it out and show some love

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Back with another update for Parvum Formula, a very small one though.

I received the vinyl for the build and wanted to show you guys.

I will be working on the case over the following days to try and get all the vinyl work done.

I have black, grey and red colours and the red one seem to match the red on the case really well.







Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here it is, another small update on the Parvum Formula build. Maybe some of you have been waiting for this one to see how the front panel will look with the vinyl work applied to it and here it is.

Had a slight delay with this, the red vinyl I have which I showed before is really bad and barely sticks so I ordered a new one and hopefully it arrives at some point this week. The black and grey ones I have are really good so ordered the same in red as well.

So the front panel is done as no red was needed for this. More to come on the rest of the case and also other components as soon as I get the new red vinyl roll.

Hope you guys like the outcome!





















Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

More updates coming now that I have the new red vinyl in!

This is the design I did for the rads and I will also do something similar on the sides of the memory











Also made sure the EK badge is facing the right way on how the rads are going to be placed inside the case, can't have a reverse or upside down badge anywhere





Rads are now tapped to an M4 thread as well



Hope you guys like the update!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Another small update!

Check out the vinyl details on the fans and everything now mounted in with the grills.

I also have some pretty awesome news! The Parvum Formula build has been nominated for Mod of the Month over on Bit-Tech. You can find the article here and the voting thread here.

























Thanks for checking it out and show some love in the MOTM!

Cheers,

Alex
