Great to see you're back on it!

Aye that is a good question indeed. I'll have to look into which mounts are going to be suitable, although I may not end up actually wall mounting it and just keeping it on its show stand (saves having to put it on and take it off the wall for shows). We've got an old 50" plasma downstairs mounted on the wall, it required 2 hefty people to lift it into place, that sort of mount would be more than capable.

Little update for anybody interested. I've finally managed to make it to an iSeries LAN! I've brought Argentum along in its current, basic state too. It's all neatly packed into a white/silver Parvum M1, kindly provided by the lads, running smoothly and getting some views. If anybody's attending i56, my seat is H3-F49 (the one by the central isle), please do pop by and say hello (if I've got my headset on just knock the table or something to get my attention, won't be playing anything important).

I'll be uploading some photos of the rig in its temporary home once I've downloaded them from my camera.

So I had the opportunity to spend last weekend over at my first iSeries! Was a real blast biggrin.gif

I'd like to give a huge thanks to the Parvum lads for both providing me with a case at such short notice and for transporting my rigs there and back (even if they forgot the monitors rofl). Another thanks goes to Overclockers who loaned me an Acer 4k Gsync monitor for the event!

I figured I'd take a few snaps whilst I was there too, got to see all the recent Parvum rigs in their proper environments (as opposed to the workshop), they're real stunners.


The prep and travel for LAN can really knock the energy out of ya...































I also decided to take some shots of the current state of Parvum Argentum once I got the rig back. Remember that this case is temporary and that the final build will be planar and wall mount style. No extensions or custom cables for this one currently, can you imagine doing that many cables just for a couple months of use? Well, I can't that's for sure haha










]So much more desk space... for now.

Well I imagine a number of you thought this project either finished or dead. Well thankfully it is neither! I'll just leave this here as a teaser of things to come, expect some pretty pictures when the big business gets going.

Exciting times indeed! This build's been in the pipeline for way too long now

Aye that's been my trusty companion for many years now, still works flawlessly.


UPDATE!!!!!!




So this is a big day, nay a VERY big day! A few weeks back I got in touch with Bitspower with the view to hopefully securing a sponsorship for some of the WC parts in the build. Thankfully they said that the project was of interest and that they would be happy to sponsor all the components (bar the D5 pumps as Bitspower doesn't sell them currently)! So a massive thank you to Eric at Bitspower for making this build a possibility!

I hope what they sent is of interest. This does now mean that I can get on with the truly juicy part of this build, which has been languishing in the back of my mind for over a year now. So without further ado, the hardware!

Box shot, yeah that's quite a bit of stuff actually


First up are the fittings, I'll be using 16mm acrylic tube for this build. I figured since the rig itself is big, a chunkier tube would work better.


The number of fittings is actually lower than you might expect, this is because so many elements will be incorporated into the chassis (like the pumps etc)


The finish you get on Bitspower's fittings is IMO unparalleled. I've used so many from different places, they really are amazing.





Since the final build will be hard to move around, proper drainage is very important. These should help a lot


Lots of rad space! I've actually reduced the spec from 4x480mm to 2x480 and 2x360, this is so that I can reclaim more space. I reckon I severely underestimated how much room the PSU and cables will take, this should help.






GPU blocks!


Nickel so as to fit the theme


Now this I'm excited about, it's a THOR monoblock. You may remember that originally we were going to make our own? Well it turns out Bitspower made one already, which is great as it would have been a lengthy process turning that concept block into a viable one. That said, since it's EOL there wasn't a clear one in stock. I'll likely have to design a new top for this out of clear acrylic.


All assembled the block is rather smart




Love all the nickel
