    Hey guys,

    More updates coming now that I have the new red vinyl in!

    This is the design I did for the rads and I will also do something similar on the sides of the memory :)

    Also made sure the EK badge is facing the right way on how the rads are going to be placed inside the case, can't have a reverse or upside down badge anywhere :D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rads are now tapped to an M4 thread as well

    [​IMG]

    Hope you guys like the update!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hey guys,

    Another small update!

    Check out the vinyl details on the fans and everything now mounted in with the grills.

    I also have some pretty awesome news! The Parvum Formula build has been nominated for Mod of the Month here on Bit-Tech. You can find the article here and the voting thread here.

    Thanks :D

    I'm not sure yet what the best way will be!

    The pump and res combo will go next to the front rad though waiting on some things before I'm gonna drill the mounting holes into the case :)

    Once that is in and also get some waterblocks in I should be able to figure it out :)

    Hey guys,

    Updates on this build will start to flow again now. Been super busy with moving over the last few weeks and now I'm still waiting on internet to get connected, posting this update from work.

    Here is the vinyl work I did for the RAM, follows the same style as the rads.

    Love the vinyl, must have been a lot of work placing all those little triangles of colour! Paid off though. Keep it up :)

    Hey guys,

    Cleaned up the PSU a little bit with some vinyl. Also I have all other bits of components still needed for this build currently on the way :D. Lots of awesome goodies on the way!

    Hey guys,

    Here's a quick look at the awesome fittings Primochill sent. These are their Rigid Revolver fittings that I will be using throughout the build. Huge thanks to Primochill and make sure to check out their online store for all their watercooling and modding products line-up - www.primochill.com

    Hey guys!

    Been a long time since I've made an update in this build log! Just been caught up with other builds and competitions as well as, stated from the start of the log, this is a build I have been working on for a mate and he's had trouble acquiring the rest of the parts.

    I have everything I need in order to get this build finished now so I'm ready to push ahead with it.

    Firstly I would like to showcase the awesome cables provided by Mod/Smart for this project. They are done from red and white paracord sleeving. They look awesome and will fit the build really well.

    Thanks for checking it out guys and apologies for the delays with this build!

    Stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Hey guys,

    Here are some more progress shots!

    I did some similar vinyl work as on the rads, on the pump and also added a patch of vinyl to the bottom of the case just to give it some more contrast. The rest will be covered by the rads and motherboard tray.

    Have a look and sorry for the dark shots, this was just after I did it. I will have better pics of this soon.

    There is also a package of watercooling goodies that arrived from PerformancePCs! It's stuff like this that PerformancePCs are good at, I think they stock the largest amount of watercooling and modding gear in the world and they have every possible little thing you might need.

    If you haven't already, it's really worth checking them out! They have international shipping with Fedex or DHL which arrives withing 3 to 4 business days and if you make a large enough order the shipping fee is pretty decent.

    Have a look what I got for this order, mainly small things I couldn't find anywhere else in Australia.

    [​IMG]

    All the fans and lights will be connected to this PCB to help with cable management.

    [​IMG]

    Different pump top for the DDC pump and the Bitspower upgrade kit with the res.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also got the multi port top and an aquapipe to return the loop to the top of the res.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this is something I've wanted to get for a while. The Phobya external power supply.
    It's really good for outside testing of fans, lights and even running a pump test or something, good and handy to have.

    [​IMG]

    Simple molex connector and you can just connect a small PCB with different connectors to that.

    [​IMG]

    That's it for this update guys!

    Stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hey guys,

    Following with yesterday's update. Here are some better shots of the pump and res combo from Bitspower with the small vinyl work done.

    The CPU was also received from my good friend at DG Mods - https://www.facebook.com/DeeGeeTechandHardware/?fref=ts

    [​IMG]

    The CPU is a 4790K, delidded and lapped with a tested roughly 20C drop in load temps :D

    Thanks for checking it out guys!

    Cheers,

    Hey guys,

    Today I give you a better look at some of the components mounted inside the case and the cable management that was done so far.

    The pump/res combo is mounted straight into the bottom of the case, through the acrylic.

    [​IMG]

    24pin and 8pin cables are connected along with the pump and fan cables.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It's pretty easy to work on a build when you can have both side panels and the top off like this.

    [​IMG]

    The cable management so far, looking pretty good. Mostly thanks to custom cables and the awesome PCB to connect all the fans to.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's it for now guys!

    Thanks for checking it out!

    Cheers,

    Alex
