    80% SYSTEM FITTED!

    IT'S ALMOST 2014 UPDATE!

    First and most frustratingly with any of my builds, we strip the system back to almost stage 1. Even more frustratingly we will have to this AGAIN before the build is complete:

    [​IMG]

    Replaced bottom panel with frosted so we can pump a nice amount of light though the bottom section of the case. We fitted the long res:

    A really nice thing to see when you use CAD and CNC machines... when you plan something about 5 months ago and finally get to use the hole you cut :D

    Next we install the LARGE reservoir! We had to remove most things to actually get this in:

    Cable routing for pumps:

    [​IMG]

    A lot of the system installed, pumps in place etc:

    [​IMG]

    Top mounting for res:

    [​IMG]

    With GPUs in for a test and some pretty awesome shots! No wasted space:

    That's your lot for now folks. Super happy with how it all looks with the reservoirs in.

    See you all again soon!

    Magnus is looking awesome! Definitely ONE of a kind! When you're finished I'll come and take it off ya hands! :D

    Great work bud. :rock:

    BTW, you've got yourself a mountain to climb to outdo this project! Looking forward to the next project, even though this isn't finished!

    Can't wait to see the loop fill video!

    This truly is shaping up to be something phenomenal. Well done guys! I guess we'll be seeing it complete soon enough. :)

    one of, if not the coolest build I've ever seen.

    It kinda reminds me of some modern architecture building, the lloyds building in london eg.

    the pipes and the res are too awesome for me to comprehend right now

    Ah glad you like it mate. It's very different for sure. Hopefully when complete it will even turn a few people who dislike some of its madness around :D

    Ah damn, I'm supposed to be taking it easy with projects this year but already have an idea for a dual ITX LAN system.. :D watch bit-tech I guess haha

    Thanks kier, gotta get you to the warehouse soon!

    Thanks Joe, we was really excited about posting this update, its a huge step to have the custom milled parts installed and fitting with no problems.

    That's an honour to be up there with your all time coolest! Thank you mate.

    Funny you should say that. Shaun my managing partner has a degree in architecture. Really really happy how its turned out so far.

    Do you have a background in architecture yourself?

    Coming from yourself... thank you very much. Thanks for the sponsor also. Only tiny parts of the puzzle but with extreme function! More bits to show off in later posts :)

    The drawing and cutting is the easy part. Thinking of a cool design that will work with the theme of the build is what takes the skills.

    Great work guys. Really a mod after my mind:clap:

    Suppose its still 50/50 for me :D, I'm behind a lot of the design ideas but have a pretty amazing way of relaying said ideas to Shaun who can somehow take whats in my head and put it into our drawing program. We also don't in most cases draw in 3D. That adds a huge amount of time to a project that we don't have while running a business.

    As for cutting thats no problem now but has taken a hell of a lot of learning over the years. Sending a drawing to be cut by someone who's been doing it for 20 years is somewhat easy but learning to use CNC, machining, tooling, tool paths and so on is no easy feat! All in house here at Parvum of course ;D

    Glad your a fan, I've been eyeing up your recent set of drawings on Facebook. Hope you end up making it! Great inspiration!

    Acrylic front tubing and Monsoon bending kit

    Sponsors/Support:
    [​IMG]

    A small update:

    So well known forum modder/builder/negative/argumentative/point-well-made friend B-NEG came to check out the Parvum set up. He actually came to brief us on a reservoir we will be custom milling for him but while he was down came with his new Monsoon kit. Here is the photo of the full kit:

    [​IMG]

    Really nice little kit. Obviously as stated already here bending is not something we personally like as a look but for the front of the case we needed to use a few concealed bends with acrylic. For anyone who is already good at bending tubing or just wants to start I'd say go for it! Its expensive for the full kit but it's something you'll use on all builds. Just please don't go crazy with the bends! ;D

    A few of my favorite pieces:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The little cutting jig is really cool.

    So apply heat:

    [​IMG]

    And bend! B-NEG = lots of bending. Another nice little touch with these is you can screw or clamp them down. Useful if you want to make more advanced jigs:

    [​IMG]

    Test fitting the tube:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Tubing in place:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The black panel will be re-cut to improve this. We knew this was going to be pretty likely but now we can bring it down much lower and file away a 45° section. This should pretty much hide all of the bend.

    Finally it wouldn't be a B-NEG helping hand without his partner in crime:

    [​IMG]

    UNTIL NEXT TIME. THANK YOU!

    Magoo.

    He is pleased by this.

    That is all.

    XD

    EDIT: You dont want to know how long it took to wash out the acrylic shavings.....
    He had at least 168 people sent to his gulag for that indignity.

    If you need any more bent or a higher tolerance then gimme a call.

    Haha such a cool shot. Glad we got him up on the backdrop :)
    I can only but imagine, defo went and had a little roll around in the acrylic when we wasn't looking.

    lol that's it dude. Slow and steady to the finish now! Just got to recut the mid wall and front panels, so going to take that time to install the LEDs and then it will be wiring time. PSU style.. ;)

    Haha, B-NEG adding to the build, few more of guys here add to it and it'll become a Bit-Tech MEGA build. :D

    I'm still taking it home when you're done, that is if you don't mind? :hehe:

    This is how it should be,exchange of services and a bit of friendly banter,you want a great community then you gots to participate. :dremel:

    It does help that Justin and Shaun are genuinely nice people,they are not primadonna's or nursing epic ego's,they are just trying to break into a crowded industry and doing well,and that is applaudable.


    Magoo likes them too but i think thats because is bored of his present minions and wants replacements.
