Good news, Senescentis is back with the addition of a new sponsor and some fresh thinking from fellow modder JR23. Having spent some time working together on PARVUM MATE he stumbled across the steel X1.0 hiding in the corner of Parvum HQ and demanded progress be made immediately! With both of us able to put some time into the project we decided to step up the ambition and fill out the case with something a little more special than first planned. JR has some unconventional watercooling ideas he wanted to explore that fit elegantly into the theme of the build, or so he tells me But first lets take a look at the swag from HyperX and the projects latest sponsor EKWB. ...much goodness already, lets unbox! HyperX 3K's seem to get better looking every time we unbox them and the Fury matches the subtle aggression beautifully, too bad those spreaders will be coming off soon. Beneath EKWB's vibrant packaging lies an understated lump of acetal and nickel, not something I typically go for (acrylic Cheesecake!) however its very inkeeping with the architectural nature of the project. Luckily EKWB offer a replacement acetal top for the monarch block just in case even moar clean CSQ epicness is required. We also decided to go with a PE radiator on this one to complement the simple square lines of the blocks. Finally we have the DDC and black heatsink/cover concluding our little array of watercooling gear. From this collection of uber clean monochrome hardware it may seem as if we are straying away from the beaten up rat look and to an extent that is the case. Not everything in it will be ratted, instead we will try to achieve a very controlled contrast between the rough rusted textures and smooth black surfaces. But there will still be some dirty industrial elements to look forward to. It's great to have a some momentum back on the Parvum modding projects, i'm stoked to see what JR does with the watercooling kit and I can't wait to report back to you guys with more updates. Thanks to HyperX and EKWB for your support and thanks to everybody following the log for your patience.
