[Build Log] Resurgent: A Parvum Creation.

post #1 of 78

Rise Again


Following my first failed attempt at a watercooling build log in a Caselabs S3, I retreated, licked my wounds, sold what I wouldn't reuse, and planned for my comeback story. This build log represents a better planned, more powerful build reusing as many parts as possible. I decided I wanted 2 GPU's, so a case switch to the beautiful Parvum S2.0 was necessary.

Components
-CPU: Intel i7 4770k, delidded
-Mobo: Asus Z97 Gryphon, with armor kit.
-RAM: 16gb G.Skill Trident 2400, with EK Monarch RAM modules.
-GPU: 2x EVGA 780ti Classified (one is Kingpin Edition)
-PSU: Silverstone ST1000G Evolution
-SSD: 1TB Samsung 840 EVO
-OS: Windows 8.1
-Case: Parvum S2.0

Cooling
-UK Supremacy CPU block
-EK FC780 Classified - Nickel, with EK Backplate
-Laing DDC-1T Plus with Bitspower Laing DDC
-Gelid Wing 12 fans- UV Blue and Gelid Wing 8
-DDC Top Upgrade Kit 80 with a reused reservoir top from Bitspower Z-Multi
-EK DDC Pump Housing
-Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra

Fittings and Tubing
-Compression Fittings: 12x Monsoon Chain Gun Black/Blue
-Tubing: 1x PrimoFlex Adv LRT 3/8: x 1/2"
-90 degree joints: 5x Monsoon 90 degree Rotary
-45 degree joints: 1x Monsoon 45 degree Rotary
-Bridge between 2 GPU's: EK Solid Tube Pair, 2 slot with 2 pairs of Bitspower C47's
-Plugs: 7x Monsoon Stop Fitting, blue
-Drain port assembly: Bitspower Mini Valve with 1x Bitspower male/male fitting 1x Alphacool male/male Extender 1x Bitspower T Adapter
-Extensions: 1x Bitspower 25mm male/female Extender

This list took a long time to compile with links, but I did it because figuring out what kind of fittings are used is often the hardest thing to decipher when all that's listed is something like "Bitspower Fittings". Some of the numbers might be off, as I'm creating this list prior to installation of the loop. I will update things as necessary.

I'll be custom sleeving the cables in white/blue primary colors, using gray and black as contrast. The highly visible cables in the main compartment will be paracord, while a lot of the guts in the back will be me using up my leftover blue/black/gray MDPC-X sleeving. I have some cables made from the previous build, I'll make extensions for some of them.

I do not own a camera so all of the progress pictures will be taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3, sorry in advance. Maybe if things turn out well I can borrow a nice camera for the final pics smile.gif

Special shout-out to Jameswalt1's Parvum Titanfall. It is absolutely the creme-of-the-crop when it comes to Parvum builds, and this build was partially inspired by that glorious computer

Here's a pair of pictures of my progress thus far:



I painted the 120mm radiator fans, the PSU fan, and the PSU to match the White/Blue theme. There will also be black in the build, with gray in some of the sleeving.



Case assembled. Man this thing looks incredible. Since this picture was taken I sleeved all the radiator fans, the pump, and the power switch. I'm at a stopping point until Monday when more of my watercooling parts and the motherboard start arriving. A lot of the parts i'm reusing for this build are currently being used in my computer, so i'll take them out when I have the other stuff ready. I hope whoever sees this enjoys the log, and that it will be helpful to anyone considering building in the Parvum S2.0

This is shaping up to look like a nice build, how well do Kingpin and non Kingpin cards work together?
post #6 of 78
Following of course biggrin.gif Shall also get a Parvum thread up. We are working to get cases out to a few distributors in USA and Canada just could be another 2 months yet.

I've been using the 2 different cards with their air coolers on for a few months now with no problems. Basically they run like 2 Classifieds, wasting the "Kingpin" premium from the first card. That's fine with me. Basically the KPE was me originally trying to put the most possible GPU power into an ITX build. When I switched to mATX I didn't want to pay the premium for extra power I wouldn't need now that I'd be using 2 cards in SLI. It's nice that they use the same waterblock. You'll see when I start building the GPU power cables that one of them will have to be a 8pin + 6pin, I'll resleeve it to match everything else. Hopefully it doesn't draw too much attention.

Progress pictures. Still waiting on parts.



I think the PSU turned out quite nice.



Sleeved vandal power switch.



The backside of Gelid's aren't very pretty, but the white on blue looks nice at least. I think they should look great with a little UV lighting to make them stand out from the radiator. I also painted both radiators smile.gif

All of my fittings are going to be black, along with the pump. I haven't decided if i want to paint the pump white. Any opinions?
