    Great new photos, I like Nos 3 and 4.

    Orange and white works so well in Parvum, nice to see another one with great detailing and attention to detail.

    The benchmarks (CPU overclocked)
    • CPU: i5-4690K
    • Stock speed: 3.5Ghz
    • Overclock: 4.4Ghz@1.2V
     
    The Process
    I did some benchmark because I think it's another step of making a new build. I also overclocked the CPU at a stable speed of 4.4Ghz@1.2V. Each stress was performed with the computer case closed and the fan speed set at normal. My room doesn't have AC and the tests were done a few days ago (end of summer).

    These are all the Bitspower components I used for the build (bought on Dazmode.com)

    Do you know what! I *think* this is my absolute favourite build ever on Bit Tech!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colour scheme, choice of fans (same as mine), and I'm so jealous that you've got to watercool it.

    Just brilliant, so beautiful - top marks!

    Thank you very much! I just saw your build and it's pretty cool :) ITX is always harder since it's much smaller.

    Thank you! Yes, I'm really proud of it. It's always nice to see someone featuring your build! I wish that feeling to everyone.

    Yes! I'd really like to do a watercooled SLI mATX Parvum case build too - that mobo you've got is easily my favourite mATX motherboard currently available.

    I think I'll do one when Oculus comes out, assuming SLI compatiblity has been fixed for VR.
