Custom vinyl work for the Enermax fans
I create a template with Silhouette Studio software...
... and make the layers one by one
Layer 2 (barely visible, same colour of the layer 1)
Custom vinyl work for the GENE motherboard heatsink
Templates with Silhouette Studio software
Pretty happy with the result
Big update with custom vinyl works for the psu, ssd and hdd.
As always I create a template with Silhouette studio.
Here's the psu, EVGA
ORCA 750 G3 "JAWS edition"
Layer 1 (for the other side)
Layer 2 (for the other side)
Layer 1 (for the fan)
Layer 2 (for the fan)
Here's the ssd...
Layer 3 (blue on blue, barely visibile)
... and hard drive with only one layer
The "JAWS collection" is now complete!
All the watercooling goodies are ready, all EK except for the radiators which are the Alphacool NexXxos series. Can't wait to start
Nice attention to detail man. The motherboard looks fantastic !
Unpacked all the watercooling stuff, as always top quality from EK and Alphacool.
This time I play with really shine nickel plated waterblocks and fittings, I think the nickel plating match the build really good, specially with the acrilic blue
This little DDC res/pump is really nice, love it
I added the multiport and the internal tube to get the inlet port on the top of the reservoir
The RAM adapters are only for replace the original heat spreader of the DIMM modules and for match the Supremacy nickel plated
Sleeved pump and added some cable combs
And finally receive the last panels to complete the case
Custom stickers from Stickers International UK, thanks to James Walter to sharing this awesome site and thanks for the tip of re-brending the components with own style
This is a massive graphics card
Just mounted the hardware for checking, pretty happy with the result but I have some issue:
- First the graphics card is slightly bent, not a surprise for me in a Parvum build and the weight not help at all.
- Second the radiators have the extra ports to close from the panels and this is a problem because the plugs touch the panel, I probably go with 3mm standoff or maybe I send back the panels to Parvum HQ for modify them.
- Third the window bite is not big enough to fit the graphics card, I send back for modify it.
Anyway this is the result:
I receive a new sponsor from Michael of Mayhems Solution, the famous UK company specialized in dye coolant, thank you Michael
Tons of dye, five different blue give me wide range of shade to personalize the liquid...
...I forgot to upload the complete radiators with Orca "rebranding"
Can't imaging this build without the O2 tank used in the film for exploding the shark
Just the logo made with the Silhouette...
...Well, not proper the same thing, but hey!, I didn't find anything else for figure this, looks good anyway
I'm start with the loop and I decide to going with minimalistic and in some way non conventional loop, just 3 tubes, the other connection are made by fittings and adapters to achieve an industrial look I think, this is possibile due to the "parallel loop" and crossflow radiator which allow me to reduce the number of tubing and tubing bends.
The front panels are missing because the first panel with the mounting holes is at Parvum HQ for rectification, @imersa told me that maybe there was a problem with the shipping, so i'm still waiting to receive it.
Btw even the front loop will be made by only fittings and everything will be super tight.
Build is now complete and final pics are coming soon, just a bit of editing with Capture NX and PS and they are ready within 12 hours I think
Ok, after more then one year I finally finished this build, more and more and more of delays... but now is complete and it's a beauty.
First I want to thank again my sponsor, Julian from Purple Banana and Michael from Mayems, I hope to collaborate with them again in the future .
I must don't forget Ricardo from ColdZero wich provide me the awesome backlate, can't imaging this build without that.
What about the Parvum guys?
Well, they made the case of my dream and I'm 100% sure I will stay with them again in the future, honestly I'm just planning new builds for this year so I'll contact you soon
Well, I made a tons of finally pics, actually there are 60 of High quality pics
I would love to make a cinematic video, but my DSLR is definitely not good for make video, even with semi-pro slider the quality is lack, cause a lot of grainy noise... so I had to give up with the video
But I don't want to waste anymore time and...
... enjoy the build completed.
Hope you like it
Thank you Sir
Just make this little collage, I think this is quite original
I re-uploaded all the final pics after I realized that the white balance was quite warm (I previously set the WB at 5500K that's fine with my laptop, but for some reason it was too warm for my calibrated monitor), so I had to re-edit everything with a new WB dropped to 5000K and I also increased a bit the saturation to reach a deeper blue.
I think it's fine now!
