Introduction
It will be my first build, even if I've been working in IT for more than 20 years. I don't have a lot of time nor the tools but I'm really looking forward to successfully complete this build. I already see a few challenges, but guess what, I'm up to it.

I'm going to call this build the Project Orange Horizon, a mix of white and orange. One thing for sure is that I don't want to copy the excellent sponsored Parvum TITANFALL project done by @Jameswalt1. It will probably inspire me but I really don't want to clone someone else's masterpiece.

I ordered the Parvum Systems S2 case from Overclockers UK on June 30th and received it, in Canada, on July 3rd. Shipping and custom were pretty quick!

I really love the case but it is so expensive to get it shipped to Canada.

Very nice mate! These parvum cases have so much potential! I live in the UK and have been working on parvum cases for awhile now. I bought their first release the S1.0 which I watercooled and shortly after, Parvum sent me their S2.0 case for free to showcase it and as a good will gesture for helping out forum members with their new products.



Parvums S2.0:




And Parvums S1.0




They are really good little beasts!

Power Supply
The reason why I'm still not sure to go with the AX760i or the AX860i is simple.
  • I'm still not sure if I'll SLI/Crossfire the GPU. Unless I've miss-understood the basic of water-cooling my case cannot have more than 2 radiators so water-cooling a SLI/Crossfire configuration isn't possible. The only way I see this possible is to remove the loop to the CPU.
  • I really like the fan-less option from the AX series. It is zero-RPM until it hits around 60% of the PSU system load. Assuming that I would be going with a single GPU, the fan would starts when I hit the 516W which is quite interesting since I want a quiet system.

What do you think? The price difference between the AX760i and the AX860i is pretty low.

Video Card
I currently have a MSI Radeon R9 270X Gaming Edition which seems pretty hard to WC.

I'm not planning to have more than a monitor. I currently own an old Samsung T220 but I would be interested by a new monitor (Something like the Asus PB287Q).

Therefore, I have three options for this build:
  1. Buy another R9 270x (crossfire) and buy a new monitor
  2. Buy a R9 290X that I would include in the WC loop with a second radiator.
  3. Buy a GTX Titan which would not be included in the WC loop. I wouldn't buy a second radiator.

What should I do?

My parvum had two gpu's, CPU and ram all water-cooled using two radiators. Very good temps. You'll be perfectly fine.
