[Build Log] Glacier mATX - Custom Parvum R1.0 Frosted Clear

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 



About

I’ve decided to build a matx setup that keeps size down and and temps even lower.
I’m a first time WC’r, build logger, custom case builder etc, so this is a huge learning experience for me, and the steep learning curve required quite a bit of research. I’ve been lurking these forums since 2010, taking in everything I’ve seen since then, but only recently decided to make an account.

The build harks back the see-through plastic aesthetic of the 90s, mixing it with the sharp, square and minimalist contemporary look of EK and Parvum design. See-through gameboys, phones, consoles were all an inspiration to this build. Being a 90s kid, my first custom build is naturally going to have a see-through plastic case.
This build isn’t going to be too see-through though, more frosted, but you’d still be able to see amorphous shapes and hints of what’s inside, à la the Glacier GBA.


The Parvum r1.0 is everything I’ve ever wanted in a case. Horizontal dual chamber design with a slim pedestal thing (rad chamber) to keep height down. I live in a very dusty environment and plan on not running any fans in the motherboard chamber to keep things shiny forever. Having the radiators separate from the rest of the components means I can run any fan orientation I want, don’t have to worry about dust making my shinies look dull and not sacrifice on cooling performance. Being an acrylic case, it made all too much sense going for the frosted clear option as it’s the one unique quality this case has over metal cases.

The WC setup is an all EK loop, because of the logistics and because I’m partial to their design and simplicity. I’m using two 360 rads because I have a high ambient around 25-30c and thus want to keep deltaT as low as possible to get those super low temps. It also keeps the build open for the inclusion of another gpu in the future.

The components I’m going to be using are from my current 1-2 year old build, as there is absolutely no point in upgrading at this moment in time (for gaming), still has a lot of overclocking headroom and goes toe to toe with current hardware. The gpu might get upgraded to a 1080ti or two and the mobo/cpu might get upgraded to the next enthusiast platform.

The build is still in preliminary stages. Only the case has been ordered yet and the rest should be ordered shortly. I should be a good couple of months till the build is complete.

Thanks for the subs. As stated in the OP, it's still early days for the build. The case has been ordered, but I'm having Parvum make some minor changes to it. The majority of the wait would be for the case, the other parts can be ordered and delivered within a week.

Also, not sure if I should go for paracord or PET based sleeving. I do love the softness and pliability of paracord, but plastic sleeving has a shine to it. The sleeving is going to be gray/titanium/carbon colored.
