    i49 Parvum / XSPC Mod


    I spoke to Justin from Parvum Systems a while back at a previous iseries about doing a system build using their chassis to go on our TCM Gaming booth at the summer Multiplay i49 LAN event and as it's literally only a couple of weeks away, thought i best get cracking.

    I've already seen and followed some epic system builds and project logs in these chassis from some of the modding greats such as Darthbeavis, imersa, Kier, l3p, BCMods, k3nny etc. etc. so if mine comes out half as good as any of these guys i will be absolutely over the moon.

    One thing i have noticed with all these fantastic Parvum builds presently kicking around the forums is that no two are alike and each one has their own unique style (especially Darths lol) so hope i can carry that through with mine and do something as spectacular and nice and clean watercooling wise.

    Anyway, if i could just start off by thanking in advance some of the people and companys involved as without them it wouldn't be possible.....Cheers for the continued support.......





    System Spec:
    Asus MAXIMUS V GENE Z77
    Intel i7 2700K
    GTX670 Sli
    Kingston Hyper X 128GB SSD
    Kingston Hyper X Predator 36GB RAM
    Coolermaster SPH1050w PSU
    Gelid 120mm x 16mm Blue LED Fans

    Watercooling Spec:
    XSPC EX240 Rad
    XSPC EX360 Crossflow Rad
    Razor GTX670 GPU Blocks
    XSPC Photon 170 Tube Res
    Laing DDC Pump
    XSPC DDC Multiport Top
    7/16" Masterkleer Hose

    This is a couple of teaser pictures that Parvum sent me of the top logo lit up and then the the motherboard tray

    I decided to mount the Kingston SSD on top of the case just back of the graphic card window so rather than send the panel back to Parvum to have the opening cut on the CNC, i decided to pull out the laser guided fret saw and cut an opening in the black layer so the SSD could fasten to the blue layer beneath so it fits recessed.

    I managed to find a 90° angled sata / power connector at Maplins of all places which keeps it all looking neat and tidy.

    Anyway, the next few are just some random pictures of basically seeing how things are going to fit before adding the actual hardware so thanks for looking and will update once there is something to update with :)

    It is looking great. Nice colourscheme and nice hardware.

    Be carefull with their GTX670 warterblock though. I am using two and both needed modifications to fit different brand reference gfx cards.

    Good luck!

    It'll be interesting to see what all you do.
    Looks like a tight fit on the rad ports.

    Me, staying in on a Friday night..............never been known but sometimes needs must and as TTL at OC3D was good enough to cut his vacation at Hotel NHS short and hot tail it back home and next day me some hardware, i thought it was only right i stay home and try and do said hardware justice :)

    Anyway, yes i did have to employ a small child with very very small hands to link the hose between the two radiators and the tube res but he did a cracking job and all is well so 50p well spent :thumb:

    Just busy fitting the GPU blocks and more will follow ASAP but again i'd like to thank TTL for sorting the hardware when he really should have been recuperating and looking after himself .....top man and i won't ever forget it.

    New cooling liquid is Bombay Sapphire BTW..........:naughty:

    Suppose the LAN is a little bit further to go for Richard! I'm sure we will all eventually cross paths however.

    Stoked for beers and to check out some fine rigs! LAN is fast approaching.

    We want to visit over the pond so I can probably time it with a LAN - and then write off as a business expense? :dremel:
