[Build Log] Parvum r1.0 matx - i7 7700k - EVGA 1080 sc SLI - Borosilicate tubing custom cooling loop.

What's up OCN,

I started this build out as something I was putting together for my kids so we can game together. After purchasing the parvum case and buying the first bit of hardware I started realizing that their rig was starting to turn out to have better parts than mine. So I decided that I would kick them down my current rig minus the two 980ti's that I have in it and take the new build for myself. (Father of the year)

My last build was my first time doing liquid cooling so I had a learning curve that I had go through. Now I have a better understanding of it should have a much easier go at it. (I'll still have to learn to sleeve wires) thumb.gif

I decided to go with borosilicate glass tubing because that's what I do for a living I'm a borosilicate lampworker and seen that people are using in their builds and was like here's something I can do. I had a really hard time bending acrylic on my last build and opted out and took the fitting route after I failed A lot. With boro this is not the case I use 12mm tubing everyday and I can bend it like it's my job (pun intended). I did some practice bends last night and I had no problem getting a perfect 90 with out a form just by eye and hand. I'll be building a form this weekend so all my bends will be exactly the same.

So here's my parts list I have a good amount of the parts already more in route and i should have everything in by the end of the month except the parvum case not sure how long that's going to take. I plan on polishing every bit of acrylic that's going in here It's going to be long and tedious but worth it in the end. I also plan on painting the fan blades and sleeving my own wires this time.

Here's a little quick render that mads1 whipped up for me yesterday giving me an idea what my case will look like. Really stoked on how it looks.

Do think them blocks like nicer polished, it dont take much work to get them to come up nice and clear.

Yeah I agree I think the blocks do look much nicer polished well worth the extra effort. With the gpu top window I couldn't not polish the blocks It adds a whole nother layer of clarity and cleanness to the build.

CPU is in route and should be here tomorrow Then I can finally test everything and make sure I don't have to RMA anything.

Always best to test and double test, how did you find your Rads for flushing, had loads of bits and left over solder residue in mine, took for every to clean out. Def blocks look nicer when clear, will be doing my milled reservoir , done a test the other week at Parvum, makes so much difference.
