Description

This was me finally going from a full size ATX built to a mATX build. I was tired of the big giant cases and trying to find a place for them. So I decided to go small and fit as much stuff inside of a mATX case as I could. I decided to go with a Parvum case and the modular aspect of the case made it a breeze to work in. I did some custom painting and also got some custom sleeved cables from ensourced.net. The cables came out amazing and I couldn't of asked for a better job. I sleeved the pump and some of the other components in white sleeving. I really just wanted a gaming machine that was small enough to sit on my desk. I also wanted to try my first shot at using hard tubing for the water cooling. There was a lot of measuring, cutting, and sanding to get it all done. I went with fittings over bending the tubes because it was my first time working with hard tubing, and I thought the fittings would work better with the build in the end. One thing I would of done differently would be to get some thinner radiators. The XSPC rads I got are 40mm thick and there was no room left to work with. I will be upgrading next year to dual Pascal cards and getting a 34" ultrawide monitor. I love the aspect ratio of the ultrawide monitors, just wish mine was taller. Let me know what you think about it.

If you asked my wife, $5000 lol. I don't think she would put up with my mess all over the house to build another all out PC like this. I moved well beyond my little mod room with this one.

How is the cooling in that Parvum case (I heard heat dissipation in Parvum was pretty bad)? What are your temperatures?

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

I have them posted in the details section to the left. I'm running at 4.5 on the CPU and around 50-53 under gaming load. The graphics cards at clocked at 1205 and 7500 and run at around 48 under gaming load. The fans are running at right around 30% so it's nice and quiet as well. I could turn them up and drop the temps, but they are well in the safe range. I also don't want to listen to a wind turbine blowing beside my head.

A lot of time and patients. I won't lie, I messed up a couple of those lines and had to redo them. Didn't have any leaks when I did my leak test though.

where did you get the white fittings? how did you map out the build? id like to use white or black fittings with red coolent.

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

I bought all the custom cooling stuff and the case from performance-pcs.com. They are all Bitspower fittings. My plan with the loop was to make it looke like one continuous loop around the case. I didn't want to clutter the motherboard area, or have any of the lines cross each other. From there I just took the most appealing route for my taste, and I guess other people liked it as well.

I love the Parvum cases. I'm going to be doing another one once they finish the case for me. I am doing a one off POW MIA themed Veer case. I want to show respect to my fellow soldiers while also doing something that I love doing.

I see you went beserk on the fittings I see!Originally when I did hardline for the first time I wanted like every corner and angle to be a fittings.I decided to just use a heatgun and bend the tubing when my watercooling parts list decided to reach $2987.73.

You wanna know that thing that would like make this build perfect?980Ti's in SLI!!When did you buy the 670?$420 seems strange for a 3 generation old GPU.Also I hope this build gets featured

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

The 670FTW cards are from my old build. So I bought them when they first came out. That is the only thing that got transfered over. I am going to wait until next year when the Pascal cards come out and really start using DX12. I'm hoping there's a bad *** 34" 1440p IPS ultrawide monitor at that time as well that can push 120hz.

Thanks. I'm waiting to see what Nvidia does with the Pascal cards next year. I was going to switch to two 980ti cards, but I'm also waiting on a 34" 1440p ultrawide that can do 120hz and is IPS.

  • 57 months ago

Might have something to do with size.... then again how the heck would I know? I'd say either size or color

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

The 670's were left over from the build I tore down. I'm still deciding on upgrading to 980ti's or waiting until Pascal and get a real DX12 card.

Not to give away all your secrets, but could we see the cable management on the other side of the motherboard? Otherwise, I like the build. Super sano loop, dude; very clean lines and I bet it's a snap to drain with the tap being where it is. +1

I'm very happy with the aspect ratio. I think the 34" 1440p models are the sweet spot though. The 1080 are a little on the short side for me.
