    Great to see this case finally coming to the mass market. I hope they sell like hot cakes!

    One thing though - given that this is a press release and not an actual genuine Bit-Tech editorial piece, shouldn't it go in the "Industry News" section? I know that the piece itself has a nice box at the top stating that it's a press release rather than editorial, but to my mind at least, sticking it in the "Article Discussion" section blurs the boundaries between advertising and editorial a little.

    There's little doubt these are quality cases, and I like the look, but I can't escape the feeling that they will be massive static-electricity dust magnets, and I'd like some Parvum customers to weigh in with their views on the matter.


    [edit]Wait... no CPU cutout on the mobo tray?

    JRS, I'd drop Parvum an email directly - every time I've corresponded with them, they've been extremely helpful.

    Nope - the thinking here is undoubtedly that because PSU is located right behind the CPU tray, if there was a cutout you wouldn't be able to access it very easily.

    Regarding the dust, I haven't found that to the case at all. Mine is white and I've not noticed any substantial dust build up. From what I remember, the plastic they use is antistatic anyway (important since its holding a computer), so shouldn't cause any more issues than just metal.

    I’d also like to just say that I 100% recommend people take a long look at a Parvum case. Its unlike anything else on the market, and it really has made all the cases I’ve seen released since look like ‘just another black box’

    Oh they're a thing of beauty, Tom, no doubt. Thanks for the info.

    No static in my part built box, thankfully.
    I've put a filter on the 120mm intake but am not sure what to do with the extensive and open fan grille on the top.

    I haven't measured it yet, so maybe a rad filter and self adhesive magnetic tape to hold it may do the trick.

    Hoping to bench build it again soon after a part build and rejig of parts.

    Like Tom says, they are not only a great innovative design, but Justin & Shaun are great to deal wit; very engaged with customers and interested in modding.
    Great to see a new small business doing well :thumb:

    Glad to see these finally being released, hope they took on board some of my comments.



    Would recommend to anyone really, haven't had much of a dust issue yet, although the rad for my cpu cooler is starting to get a bit dirty :p
