    Really Good! The colors are in perfect harmony.
    Great res. Is there a fill port for it?
    Keep them updates coming. Will be following closely.

    Man, that looks really awesome!

    I like Parvum cases in general (this one is by far the best so far!), you're doing a good job there.

    Then you will have a nice update to see below :D

    Yeah I'm super happy. The translucency of the red works real nice with the white. Really makes it show up nice and bright.
    There will be two fill ports! Just wanted to figue a few things out first. Coming the update after this I imagine.

    Thanks man, means a lot from yourself understandably.

    Thanks so much.

    United Kingdom as you now know. Soon to move to flat pack for our cases so we should be able to get something set up for the states :)

    17 March Update

    Small update for you all.

    We would like to first introduce another friend on board. Mayhems. You all know plenty about Mayhems and the coolant will be perfect for the build:

    Started by drawing up the top chamber. There is reason to all this madness. We really wanted to gain the extra space in the top at the bottom to help route tubing. The build will be using acrylic straight tubes which as you can imagine will be somewhat difficult in such a small space. Because we want to use a window for both sides of the case this means a lot of straight tube stress. We will be using the top and bottom chambers to give access to more flexible tubing and help work the whole nightmare out.

    [​IMG]

    Moving onto some cutting, sorry its a bit boring to show CNC cutting so we will keep it breif:

    Next we test fit the Enermax fans. Both 120mm & 80mm. Love the cluster fans! Always been a favorite and love white LEDs:

    Here we have the item cut earlier; looks strange but you will understand the use more with photos:

    [​IMG]

    Installed in the case:

    That photo really shows that the alphacool rad cover really DOES need to be made full length. We will be heading in a few hours early for work to get this done in time.

    With the GPU installed, will change the GPU block to clear due to it being a focal point of the case. Annoying that we already had the black one:

    [​IMG]

    Cables fitting real nice:

    [​IMG]

    Considering an underside backplate. Overall fit is pretty nice for first try:

    Installed the first of the acrylic tubes. Sourced this tubing from E22, of course 100's of places supply acrylic tube but our usual UK suppliers is awful for tube. The tolerances some people don't mention can be wild. Thanks nate:

    Final shot of the case in it's current state:

    As always, thanks for reading! See you on the next one.

    Looking real special, how about running those Gpu cables underneath the card ? It'd keep the wonderful clean look you've got going on with the build. Really enjoying this project, thanks for sharing

    You wont actually see the cables in the top chamber, there will be a window above the GPU section but there is another white layer to come. We will have access to the back via mid wall in the top chamber this way. May make more sense in updates to come!
    Thanks for the kind words.

    Haha not at all! We really appreciate the advice. The top and bottom chambers will be covered from the sides that all so nice spot to hide what we can :D

    How do the acrylic tubes mount and seal in the compression fittings?

    Thanks man. Stoked on iSeries.

    Yeah man would have been nice to have a helping hand in general! 3-4days till LAN haha!

    You can expect another update tomorrow.

    Haha love some peoples ways with words! Thanks man but please don't have said stroke!

    Ah thanks for subbing & thanks nate for posting our project :)

    They are actually Bitspower c47 fittings. Rather than compression they had been originally designed to connect a small piece of acrylic tube they also supply for SLI configurations. Double O rings and a tight fit is as secure as it gets with these.

    The other option for acrylic tube are pneumatic push fittings. Though I've not seen any I like so far.
