L3p - Parvum - Mod Of The Year 2013 Nominee.



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.

thats a neat logo - looks sweet. i love that hue, when it's just between yellow and green - that aggressive lime-ish hue...sexy.

pci-e extender...you got me there. well, actually, you got me before that. i saw there was a new log from l3p..that is almost an automatic sub these days

Is this build going to be air cooled or water cooled? The 690 is bloody gorgeous, shame about the price.

If you're laying the GPU flat, what are you going to do with the extra space?

It's going to be a watercooled build. The reason why it's such a shame to remove that lovely reference cooler
The update with what I'm going to do with the extender will be up in a few days

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

That inlayed logo in the side panel looks awesome! Is the in and outside both cut and match perfectly? Or is it a foil or something?

It's indeed a perfect match, there's like 0.2-0.4mm between it, he had to get it in place with a rubber hammer.

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!

Love how your logo turned out - Very effective indeed. Pretty looking case too - for some reason it reminds me of bioshock, but it's not obvious to me why....

Thanks guys!


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.

This is reeeeeaaaally nice!
I really love it!

By the way: What LED's are you using for the UV effect?
I have a regular UV strip that looks really purple (typical UV) and in your pictures the light looks perfectly blue. That's more what I want

I'd be more than happy to take that ref. Cooler off your hands...

Anyway looking lovely. Nice idea for angling the card. Gives me an option other than an angled mobo for my build.

Can't just be me right?

Loving the unique nature of these Parvum builds, and of course an L3P build is not to be missed. Interesting choice on the angle for the 690 though. I imagine it's for the simplicity on the fittings? Just seems like it's a tad shallow, almost as if your card's falling off the motherboard? Looking forward to seeing how it progresses, if past projects are a hint, then it's going to be a treat.
