    Waterblocks & Hardware

    Sponsors/Support:

    Sorry for the delay y'all!

    To update you on some things at the warehouse first. We have been busy.. more busy then ever. We have still been trying when possible to custom mod some Parvum cases, these have been ticking over nicely. In between that we have been working on a bunch of stuff for Nvidia. We did a series of cases for an American prebuild company that will be being used at LAN and show events by Nvidia themselves. We have also done a few custom battlebox cases.

    Next in line will be a massive restock of the mATX case. We then plan to get the ITX case out to retailers. We are looking at the end of November for these.
    Finally we have a new guy at Parvum, Stephen is his name! Please flame away if you are an EVEN rather than a PHEN ;D! You may well see his hands in this project... maybe.

    SO TO THE UPDATE!!
    Sorry this really is a filler update. Show you all some hardware going in so we can then at least get down to the more fun stuff... custom res', straight tubing.. the usual!

    Thought I'd start things off by showing you an ITX rig we did for a close friend. Managed to cut build and fill in one day. *There goes our only day off*...
    Really stoked on it. Custom modded the case to fit an extra 120mm rad PSU side so this little guy has 2 x 120mm rads cooling the CPU:



    So to MAGNUS! We start with a cheeky 4770k! Thank you Jim and thank you Intel for the support, without it... well, we would be CPUless... haha:



    Next what will cool the chip... this build we have gone fully XSPC. This is due to wanting to go down a slightly new route on our builds and having a close friend at XSPC. It's nice to support them, one small company to another:





    Next a little teaser of whats to come... HUGE block to mill something nice and custom:



    Some of you may have noticed this feature from the render, but almost 500mm of hard line tubing will be inlaid into each side at the front of the case. Will be a great feature with the fluid:




    So more hardware show-off... thanks again to Jim over at Kingston. He's gone all out on this build as you will see a little bit later. But first.. some RAM, 32GB in fact!





    More XSPC as we block up:



    Up next is another lovely item from Asus.. Sorry I did say this was a hardware update.
    Thanks Gareth, I know GPU situation was a headache for this build!



    Really nice packaging and the stock cooler!! :O, it's a shame we have to remove the thing. Asus have done a really great job with this cooler:






    It would be rude not to show you the board with blocks and a cheeky GPU test fit:









    That's all for today. Sorry it took a while to get it to you and then it was ultimately just some hardware.. but like I said.. now the hardware is in place we can figure out the fun stuff!

    Thanks for reading! Show some love!

    Acrylic tubing time

    Sponsors/Support:

    More delays.. nothing unusual here. This time we lost three-phase power for 6 days. Really messing up work and any chance of project updates.

    But that said... now we have something to show you. Exciting tubing at that!

    First we want to quickly show you something we are pretty happy with. It was done for a friend so won't be used in this build but a nice little piece. Spec was from a pencil drawing. Single piece construction using heat to bend and designed to hold 4 SSDs:




    mmmmmm SSD p0rn....!

    Onto MAGNUS!

    First up we remove the mosfet block from the board:



    Replacing with an awesome little XSPC block:



    One thing that did lose out on was due to the reverse(upsidedown) layout.. the little badge cannot be used. Not really a big deal as the build is very monotone but still wanted to do a little something....



    Removed the orginal red detailing from the Asus heatsinc:



    ANd in place on the XSPC waterblock:



    Next up we made a small jig from a bunch of acrylic layers. It's purpose was to add the extra 30mm of space that will be taken up in the bottom of the case so I could start to plan the loop. As with all of our builds we are forever stuck in a 'catch-22'; one thing is always stopping us do the next so this was the only way to move forward:



    Putting the jig to use:





    Then use the jig to mark the bottom panel. Again all will because much clearer in future updates:




    And more:




    Next up... well... THANK YOU ASUS! We have more GPUs!
    Sitting pretty with stock coolers for now:





    Unfortunatly for now we are having problems sorting suitable waterblocks. However knowing they will be XSPC in style the way to move forward was to grab one of Shaun's 780's already with XSPC block:



    So for anyone who hasn't worked with acrylic.. we cut ours just using a basic coping saw in a vice. Simply paired with any fittings suitable for this tubing. Bitspower and EK do these. Also spotted some other fitting systems being used but don't like the looks of these. We also hate any bending of hard line tubing. After all.. floppy tubing does the bends. If you are trying to make a super tight bend without kinking it... that's great... BUT we think there is always a better option. Thats our advise anyway. Acrylic U bends are something that make the eyes bleed.





    MOAR TUBES:











    That is it for today friends and fans

    With this progress it really means we can get going on the build so expect more frequent updates ASAP! NOOB stop moaning now! ;D
