[Build Log] - Parvum Yin-Yang

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 



Hello, everybody. It has been a while since my first build, but I am back with another one. Or should I say, a re-build smile.gif The old build was a nice black&white rig in the NZXT H440 case, with the Yin-Yang dragons painted on the side panel. The rig underwent many changes, last of which was a custom waterloop. But why stop there? For quite a while I have been amazed by Parvum cases, and when they started making ATX cases, I had my mind set on it ever since. So after some communication with the folks over at Parvum we have come to a perfect case. Nothing extra special, just the M1.0 case in black&white colors, inverted ATX and the obligatory Yin-Yang dragons, now etched on the windowed side-panel. Most of the hardware will be moved from the old rig and some changes and additions will be made. This build is not going to be fast paced, I will take my time with it, so it comes out with the least amount of issues (preferably no issues). I guess that is enough for an introduction, so without further a due...

Specs:
Intel i7-5820k
ASUS X99-PRO/USB3.1
ASUS Rampage V Edition 10
32Gb Kingston HyperX Predator RAM
2x EVGA GTX980Ti Superclocked
Parvum M1.0 inverted ATX case with custom etching
Corsair HX1200i power supply with CableMod sleeved cables
4TB WD Red HDD + 2TB WD Red HDD + 512Gb Samsung 950 PRO m.2

Watercooling:
EK-Supremacy EVO nickel+plexi
2x fullcover nickel+plexi TitanX waterblocks
2x acetal fullcover TitanX backplates
EK-HDC Fittings - white
Bitspower angled 90° fittings
12mm PETG Tubing
EK360+EK240 Coolstream radiators
6x EK-Vardar 2200RPM PWM Fans (white)
EK-REVO D5 pump/res combo
EK tripple parallel GPU terminal
Mayhems Ice white coolant

I guess this is everything, smaller details and lots of photos will be added very soon smile.gif

Also, a special thanks to my amazing wife, who supports me and didn't kill me for everything I bought biggrin.gif

See you next update wink.gif

Very excited friend smile.gif

I've been thinking of adding another radiator myself tbh.

Could I ask how those vardars are too? Do they push a lot of air while still being quiet?

I have to add a second rad due to the fact I am adding a second GPU biggrin.gif And as for those Vardars, I have them set at 30% at minimum and I don't even hear them, maybe just slightly and they push quite a lot of air, they keep my CPU and GPU at 25°C at idle wink.gif

And as for the build itself - the rest of the EKWB stuff is coming later this week or at the beginning of the next week, so photos will be posted afterwards smile.gif

Greetings, my friends. Today I received the first part of the EKWB order. Package contained the GPU waterblock for the second 980Ti, acetal backplate, 240 slim radiator, two EK-Vardar fans, 20 EK-HDC white fittings and a PWM splitter. I should receive the rest of goodies by the end of this week, hopefully. I will post more photos after everything arrives. See you until then smile.gif

P.S.: Quality of photos is not exceptional, taken with iPhone with a ceiling lamp turned on, but I guess it could be worse ph34r-smiley.gif

Hello, friends. Today after work I picked up another small package at a local shop containing more goodies from EKWB and CableMod, also EVGA and Bitspower. EKWB stuff is - EK-FC parallel terminal dual 3-slot, XRES 400 tube, REVO D5 plexi pump top, EK plugs, XRES multiport white top, XRES white bottom. Coolant is Mayhems Ice white concentrate. From EVGA I have the V2 SLI bridge. From Bitspower I have a tubing cutter and from CableMod I have a complete set of cables for the power supply in black/white color.
Next I must wait for 2 items to go back in stock at EKWB. They are the ASUS X99 Monoblock and PETG tubing. Hopefully it will be by the end of this month, like it says on the EKWB website. OK, enough talking here are some photos smile.gif See you next update.
