    Maybe because it is just at "3d model" step and people wait to see this wonderfull waterblock trough real pics :p

    Anyway, the premium quality of materials give a very clean build thats very nice. I like more "fantasy" projects and i'm waiting maybe this fabulous waterblock to really appreciate this mod. But it's already nice job :)

    It makes me all warm and fuzzy.

    Are you also going to sand and polish the inside of the milled slots?

    Hey guys, i'm back with some toys from HyperX. A 120GB HyperX 3K drive and some baby little HyperX dimm's.

    Time to break out the dremel and find somewhere to show them off!

    I hope you can see where this is going XD

    Don't worry I know how this goes back together.

    I think the motherboard should manage to magically levitate for a photo :)

    Next up i'll be figuring out how to mount everything, which I of course gave some considerable thought to before cutting out the entire motherboard tray ^_^

    Thanks guys.

    Well this block is just a test piece to validate everything works so we can be confident in the final design. A few tweaks have been made already and there are some parts of it that will definitely be adjusted next time around. It's the first block i've designed and it incorporates some elements that Parvum have never attempted before. When in it's final position the machining marks will be under the coolant and naturally less pronounced. But i'm not 100% on what coolant will be used just yet, probably something slightly translucent to show off the varying depths in the block. But everything will be considered and dealt with as required.

    Hey guys, i'm back with a very short and sweet update. I spent the last few days at Parvum HQ and among other things we cut a new motherboard tray for MATE. I prepared a cunning design before leaving home to maintain the magical levitating feeling and also support the PSU in the same way.

    [​IMG]

    I visited my local fastenings supplier and picked up some nice M3 screws and nuts to use around the build.

    [​IMG]

    Everything went together beautifully and I managed to get away with just one screw attaching the motherboard tray to the brace which is neatly hidden underneath the SSD.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The PSU bolts directly to the plate, 4 of the stock screws in the casing were replaced with 6-32 3/8" countersunk screws cleanly holding it in place.

    [​IMG]

    While I was at Parvum I also picked up the test block, it's now officially passed leak testing and looking rather slick with EKWB blood red coolant. Although just a cheeky tease this time I will get some close ups in the next update. Soon we can start work on the final block :D

    That block is stunning, I love how you incorporated the pumptop with the GPU top.

    MOAR MOAR!!!

    That's pretty slick. Pleas tell me you will replace the EK cpu block top with a monoblock that mounts to this, and houses the reservoir, ...and plays the banjo.:D

    Really blown away by the monoblock ourselves. Turning the concept into a working product has been great. Milling a part from both sides has opened us up to so many crazy ideas for future builds.

    We had thought about our own top for the CPU block but as a sponsored build running the tubes down to the CPU block looked really clean and actually looked better than some of the other options.

    Update for you all soon!

    Hello guys, with such radical progress on the other PARVUM-JR23 projects it's time to give MATE a little attention. Now that the radiator has been positioned all of the port locations were known so drawing work could start on the final full cover MATE block.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Probably one of the most ambitious single parts attempted at Parvum the block itself features an integrated DDC pump top, GPU block and reservoir not forgetting all of the pass through channels required to complete the loop. There will be only four pieces of tubing dropping down to the CPU and radiator. Unfortunately due to the unique shape of the case and the shear size of the GTX980 we will have to use fittings in the radiator ports so the tubing can be staggered around the card.

    Ok ok ok.... you can haz renders...

    [​IMG]

    The lid which seals against rubber o-rings surrounding each of the coolant channels will also form the window of the case, so naturally it will be adorned with a little Parvum branding.

    Hopefully all goes well with the cutting tomorrow/wednesday and i'll have the nice problem of figuring out how to mount it in the case. Which I have of course given much thought, lol jk, see if it fits first.
