    Hi fellow casemodders, Kier is back...again ;)

    This time I will start with a great new acrylic case
    Probably you have seen it allready in the buildlogs from L3p and K.3nny, the new Parvum systems S1.0

    The case is individually cut and hand assembled, various colors and custom modifications possible
    When unpacking I noticed the very good quality acrylic (5mm high quality acrylic) ... very hard material to work with, but not impossible, more on this later. The layout is also beautifully engineered.

    The case is available from mid-March @ Highflow Parvum Systems S1.0 White
    And @ http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-000-PS

    How it all started:

    After missing the postman two times it finally happened. A BIG package:

    [​IMG]

    Very well packed

    [​IMG]

    Hmm 2??? yes 2 ;) Want to build something extreme.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My kid really would like to know what it contains and whether it is for him .... unfortunately for him, these are for me :)

    [​IMG]

    Little picture with it from the two cases stacked.

    [​IMG]

    And a warning just in case ...

    [​IMG]

    A nice thank you letter from the Parvum family

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The black and white case with the following specifications:

    - Materials: Acrylic
    - Colours: Black/White
    - Dimensions (WxHxD): 275 x 305 x 420mm
    - Maximum CPU Cooler Height: 152mm
    - Motherboard Sizes: mATX
    - 3.5" Drive Bays: 2
    - 2.5" Drive Bays: 4
    - Cooling Front: 2 x 120mm
    - Cooling Rear: 3 x 80mm
    - Cooling Top: 2 x 120mm
    - PCI Slots: x 4

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    4x PCI slots

    [​IMG]

    PSU opening

    [​IMG]

    Air outlet for the PSU

    [​IMG]

    Front fanholes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And more 80mm fanholes at the back

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The mATX mobo tray, a hand bent acrylic mid-wall. Provides both case strength and the cable management

    [​IMG]

    With openings for the cables and possibly tubes

    [​IMG]

    The second case is slightly different internally and externally then the first original. Because I'm planning some fun stuff with this :)

    However, both with window

    [​IMG]

    Front is the same

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Furthermore the second case is empty, because I need only 1 hardware section. It is also slightly different at the back. 2x 120mm fanholes in the middle

    [​IMG]

    Also there were some nice extras in the package like:

    Case feets

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Some beautiful 240mm radgrills.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a 160mm radgrill.

    [​IMG]

    I also asked for some extra rest material for various purposes.

    [​IMG]

    Extra mounting stuff.

    [​IMG]

    Some last shots of the cases together

    [​IMG]

    To be continued ;)

    Thanks for the comments... and now modding time

    The idea is to stack everything. The bottom with the hardware, then the radiators and on top the reservoirs
    So Rads + fans on the original part of the Parvum

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To reinforce the lower part a bit i've placed some aluminum strips. Just to be sure

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Used the existing cubes to mount the next layer.

    [​IMG]

    On each corner

    [​IMG]

    Cut some side panels to the right size and an opening for the fans

    [​IMG]

    Like this

    [​IMG]

    And cut two pieces black and white. Black has the same same shape as the original front below.
    In this there will come an Asus ROG logo

    [​IMG]

    Placed the radiators. Still need to make brackets for these

    [​IMG]

    Also placed the fans

    [​IMG]

    Looks good allready I think

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ROG logo will be added later

    [​IMG]

    For the back I have cut 2 panels with fanholes to the right size

    [​IMG]

    And placed it

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Testing the fans and gives me a nice shot ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And we continue with the next layer

    [​IMG]

    These will be all around with windows except the back. It will be the same height as the radiator layer.

    The inlets and one of the fill ports

    [​IMG]

    Placed the pump about as posted on the HDD cage, more about this later

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To hide the HDD/ SSD I have cut some acrylic. Also filed and polished

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Glued together with ACRIFIX

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    KIER!!

    This is ridiculous.. I was just talking to a guy about the ALX and now this.. My goodness!?!?

    You probably have a backlog of companies just begging you to build something with their parts!!

    If only I had the time... :(
