Whilst MOD05 is waiting to get underway I agreed to do a build for a buddy of mine. £1500.00 budget with a couple requests, he wanted a full custom loop with orange coolant in a Parvum S2.0 case. Warranties need to be kept intact so mods to the hardware are out the window. It'll be a pretty quick turn around as summer LAN is but weeks away. The boys at Parvum have cooked up some additions for the stock S2.0 (orange/black) picked up from OCUK which will be with me soon, so I've held off the case shots for now. ... SPECS: Intel Core i7-4790K Corsair RM Series RM 750 Parvum Systems F1.0 Fan - White MSI Z97M Gaming Intel Z97 Micro ATX GeIL EVO Potenza 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 2400MHz - White Zotac GeForce GTX 970 "Reference Design" 4096MB All bought from OCUK having grabbed a couple items on sale, considering the budget this machine should deliver plenty of performance. SSD and HDD are the only items being brought forward from his current rig. .... WC: EK Water Blocks EK-DDC 3.2 PWM X-RES 140 EK Water Blocks EK-HDC Fitting 12mm G1/4 - White x10 EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel EK Water Blocks EK-FC980 GTX - Nickel EK Water Blocks EK-FC980 GTX Backplate - Nickel EK Water Blocks EK-AF Angled 90 Degrees G1 / 4 inch - Black x2 Except the GPU block, these we're bought directly from EKWB, shipping was effortless with everything turning up in just a couple days. .... DarkSide - Dual LP240 Extra Slim Radiator x2 DarkSide - CONNECT Dimmable Rigid LED Strip White - 12" (30cm) x2 Mayhems - Pastel Orange 250ml I'd considered sticking with the EKWB PE series of RADs but feared with the chosen pump/res I'd not quite enough room. I've wanted to try out the DarkSide LP range for a while having seen them in a few great builds. Having used DazMode with MOD04 I'd seen the RADs and LEDs, it was great to see Mayhems carrying these items (saved me on import duties). Pexon PCs are cooking up some sharp Teleios extensions which will look great no doubt and then I'll get cracking on putting it all together. I've plenty of 10/12mm E22 tubing left from MOD04 which I intend to bend (first time bending tube) so that'll no doubt drive me nuts. Looking forward to getting my teeth into this one. Cheers J.
