Here we go yet again! Here's my first of two builds this fall, another team up with Parvum Systems, this time for a highly customized Advanced Warfare themed mITX build. Originally I was set for a totally different theme but then last week at Gamescom Microsoft showed off their limited Advanced Warfare controller and console. I then switched themes and have decided to tread familiar ground in doing a build inspired by another Xbox One controller. I just couldn't help myself. I'm pretty inspired by the controllers color pallet, it's very unique and I think this build will turn out completely amazing with the plans I have...
This build is possible with the support of Swiftech, DazMode, Darkside, Ensourced Cables, and of course the talented lads at Parvum Systems.
Here's the controller I'll be using for the inspiration here:
Case - Parvum Systems custom mITX
CPU - Intel 4790k
Motherboard - EVGA Z97 Stinger
Memory - GSkill 16Gb 1866
GPU - Nvidia Titan Black
SSD - Samsung EVO 500Gb
PSU - Corsair RM650
CPU Block - Swiftech Apogee XL
GPU Block - Swiftech Komodo NV LE
Radiators - Darkside 120mm and 240mm
Ram Block - Bitspower
Pump - Swiftech MCP 35X
Pump Housing - Bitspower
Reservoir/Pump Top Combo - Bitspower
Fittings - Bitspower True Brass
Tubing - E22 12mm OD acrylic tube
Coolant - (still undecided)
Ensourced custom cables
Custom vinyl and paintwork by me
Fans - Enermax Twister Pressure
I don't have 100% of the components chosen yet, but I'm almost there. Parvum currently has my case design mockup and will be starting it next week - it's going to be spectacular. I'll update this component list as things progress.
