Is a Parvum L1.0 the right case for me?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I'm from Germany and I'm planning on a new build to replace my current rig.
Right now I am using a Fractal Arc XL to house an air cooled build with the exception of the AIO cooler of my graphics card so it would be my first custom loop water cooled PC.

I'll be taking the system to several LAN parties to showcase the build and do some gaming. I'm pretty interested in high quality cases that not everyone uses so I already ruled out the Corsair 900D for this project.
I've seen a lot of Parvum builds but only a couple finished L1.0 projects which would be the case I am interested the most. It has this monolithic look which is what I really like but it also has these interesting little details thanks to the second layer of acrylic.

My questions are :
How sturdy is the acrylic on large Parvum cases? Do i have to worry about moving them to a LAN party?
Are there better options for a comparable price?
Am I gonna run into any limitations going for an acrylic case in terms of mods, tube routing or something like that?

I am building in an L1.0. I have a corsair 750d for my server and the L1.0 is bigger. There is a picture in one of the Parvum build logs that shows this exact size comparison. The Parvum build quality is excellent, best case I have ever owned, but I think they make smaller cases which look more portable. I believe they are also fixing to release an atx version of the R, which is smaller than the L, but I could be mistaken. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the additional info. Yes. it did help!

However, I decided against the massive L1.0 for now for a couple of reasons. I will probably go for a smaller Parvum case in the future as they look really nice and a smaller System is already planned.
