[SPONSORED] PARVUM APIS by JR23

Hey guys! Yes i'm back with another build, but this one isn't for me, I have enough rigs for now, it's for my good friend TJ. He actually got me heavily into tech and PC's when we were growing up and has been enviously watching on my various exploits building insane watercooled rigs and working with Parvum. So now we are working together to build a completely new rig for him with some serious water cooling and pretty insane components for it's size.

I won't be photographing every baby step on this one, just giving a thorough overview of the progress and custom work taking place, as we want to get it completed quite swiftly when we both have the time to work on it.


Parvum Systems R1.0 360
Intel Haswell-E i7-5930K
EVGA X99 Micro
EVGA GTX 980 Classified x2
Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 4x4GB
Samsung 500GB 840 Evo
EVGA Supernova 1200W P2

EK FC980 Classy Nickel/Acetal x2
EK Supremacy EVO Nickel/Acetal
EK D5 REVO Pump Top Acetal
EK RES X3 250 Black Acetal
EK CoolStream PE 360 (Triple)
EK HD Adapter 10/12mm Black Nickel x28
Corsair SP120 Performance Edition PWM x8


I - Parvum R1.0 360 first look
II - Initial test fit of components
III - Mock placement of res and pump.
IV - Midplate water block renders
V - Machining the midplate block
VI - Finishing and fitting the midplate block
VII - Painting fans and completing the loop
VIII - Finished and filled loop!
IX - SSD fitting and sleeving update
X - Final sleeving pictures
XI - Inlaid front panel teaser


We spent a long time discussing the case, we established very early on that it had to be black and yellow which suited the neutral components very well. Everything had to be visible in an appropriate hierarchy making an inverted platform inevitable. The as of yet unreleased Parvum R1.0 seemed like a great starting point but despite only 3 existing in the world a more exclusive platform was demanded! Following a huge circle of deciding between an inverted S2.0 360 and an R1.0, the R1.0 360 was born.

2.jpg

As a nod to the L1.0's subtle side vents which break up the pedestal we chose to also and a fine strip of slats to both side panels which hopefully will discretely reveal the radiators and fans lurking beneath them.

3.jpg

GPU window of course, why else go to the trouble of an invert.

4.jpg

5.jpg

6.jpg

Cheeky rear power button, later in the build it will become apparent why it ended up here.

7.jpg

The relatively shallow height of the main chamber meant there wasn't room to take the conventional Parvum HDD bracket approach. Instead all of the drives will be mounted directly to the motherboard tray, not quite as modular but hopefully neater.

8.jpg

Finally what it's all about! It occurred to me a while ago that the S2.0 was the exact width of two radiators hence why the R1.0 was created, this takes that a little further by adding two 360mm radiators side-by-side. Quite unique for what is still a relatively compact mATX rig. I really love the wider aspect ratio it brings to the window leaving lots of room for pumps and reservoirs ahead of the graphics cards.

I'll be back very soon with the first test fitting then it's on to design the loop. smile.gif

Time for hardware, lots and lots of X99 goodness condensed into mATX form with added Classified, for a 475x275x387mm baby rig it's rather serious.

1.jpg

Naturally Clean CSQ Supremacy EVO to match the GPU's.

2.jpg

3.jpg

4.jpg

And a nice subtle set of DDR4 Dominator Platinums.

5.jpg

6.jpg

7.jpg

8.jpg

9.jpg

10.jpg

With the board sitting neatly in the case it's time for the GPU's. For 980's these are WIIIIDE.

11.jpg

12.jpg

13.jpg

14.jpg

How to install GPU's in a Parvum like a pro, who forgot to buy more M3 nuts, but still making life easier with the screws from behind.

15.jpg

Now that is Classy, GG Edvard.

16.jpg

17.jpg

Better make sure that a PSU fits nicely while we are at this early stage, we will most likely look for something a little more powerful but just had this to hand.

18.jpg

19.jpg

20.jpg

21.jpg

22.jpg

23.jpg

All things together are looking great so far, the GPU's look surprisingly big in the case but none the less they are 'inside' the case and hence onwards very shortly to the water cooling parts!

Subbed, It's dangerous to be a Parvum fan... I could very well end up with 5 cases! Really like the R1.0 concept. Look forward to seeing more great builds in them.

Woo another update with some more lovely EK kit! Naturally a pair of 360's...

1.jpg

2.jpg

They fitted in perfectly not even leaving millimeters to spare.

3.jpg

4.jpg

We managed to scavenge an EK RES X3 400 and hence bought a 250 tube for it, this should be just the right height to fill out the main chamber now.

5.jpg

6.jpg

7.jpg

The first time i've seen a D5 REVO and it's actually quite a refreshing piece of design, not quite as clean as it's predecessor although certainly sophisticated and eye catching.

9.jpg

10.jpg

Things quickly found their natural place in the rig creating a nice hierarchy of parts.

11.jpg

12.jpg

13.jpg

14.jpg

A good full day of loop planning and CAD to do now and then some excellent CNC fun ^_^.

It's a design that now exists so it's always "available". In one form, or multiple, it will be added to the Parvum website alongside the M1.0 and L1.0 following OCUK's period of exclusivity. We are trying to refine the custom order process and making a few different variations and layouts available as 'retail' products is part of the plan. If any of the more alternative cases will be stocked by distributors or not I guess depends on their popularity.

Might have to throw a design your way to see if it works, as there are a few things i want, ive already got a custom case that justin is doing but it seems to be taking ages so if i slighty mod this one it might be better.

Just a little preview of the midplate design, i'm off to Parvum HQ early in the morning hopefully to get this cut ready for assembly at the weekend.
