[SPONSORED] Project Parvum Argentum - The final design - 13/04/17

post #1 of 125
Thread Starter 
Hello once again!  
 
It seems the time is now right to get the thread going for my latest build adventure, hopefully this one will really be something special.

I present to you, Project Parvum Argentum!
 
Brief:
 
A few months back, Justin of Parvum Systems approached me with a proposition.  The idea was to create a wall mounted PC in a similar vein to Loramentum, but with monstrous hardware in mind.  Seeing as Parvum did the machining for my last build, the thought of a collaboration project very much whetted my appetite.
 
So how is this going to differ from Loramentum?  Well, scale mostly.  This build is going to feature a lot of hardware, both on the cooling side and in specs.  In making this project larger, we also wanted to make some parts more daring.  Whereas Loramentum features a simple 2 part clamshell design, we thought it would be interesting to increase that to three layers so that channels can pass over and under each other.  What also differs is what stage I'm starting the log at.  In Loramentum all the main renders were complete before embarking on the build.  Owing to the number of manufacturers involved in this build, it seemed like that would be a tough call, so this time you'll be able to see the design evolve.  I'll update the OP when the final renders for the project are completed so that they don't get lost.
 
I'd also like to give a big thank you to everybody who's decided to sponsor this project and to Justin at Parvum!  Without you guys this project could never have been possible.
 
Specs:
 
So what specs are we talking about here?
 
CPU: Intel Core i7 5960X
Motherboard: Asus X99E-WS (kindly supplied by Asus)
RAM: TBD (likely 64-128GB)
Graphics: 4(!) x Nvidia GTX Titan X (kindly supplied by Nvidia)
Storage: TBD
Power Supply: SuperFlower Leadex Platinum 2000W 8-Pack Edition (kindly supplied by SuperFlower)
 
Cooling:
 
4 x 480mm rads
4 x Laing D5
Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 for fan control
Rest is TBD
 
 
First Goodies:
 
Here are the first components to arrive:
 

 

 

 

 

 

First Renders:

The plan is to do a fully rendered version of the build, like I did for Loramentum. As such, I began to model the components that were sent, chiefly the PSU and motherboard. The following images were made using Autodesk Inventor and Blender (using Cycles to render the images).



Short clip of the rendered motherboard, I managed to push the render times for a 1080p frame down to 24 seconds so figured it was suitable for a bit of animation. Gives you a better idea of what's actually present on the model along with the materials and textures.

That's the plan, fingers crossed we reach the destination. Got some cool things in store like channels passing over/under each other etc.
