Project:
Onwards and upwards
by: Parvum Systems







This will be written by Justin but will also feature Shaun. We are the two that make up Parvum Systems. We would love to expand the company but for now you are stuck with just the two of us!

This thread will be a close look at the Parvum Systems team building a fully W/C rig into one of our own S1.0 Cases. There will be some big changes and a lot of custom work done to the case. Hopefully enough to keep your attention. This is just one of the number of cases that we will be taking to the iSeries LAN even at the end of March in the UK. We plan to head out to other EU LANs later in the year. Including Dream Hack.

We would first like to briefly introduce ourselves. Say a little bit about us and how we started Parvum Systems. If you wish to skip this part and get to the photographs then do so by all means! 🙂

Parvum Systems was started approximately one year ago after a discussion about SFF cases. I myself have been working with SFF systems for my last 3 builds. One a full custom Acrylic build. The other two Lian Li cases. However I was always frustrated at how hard it was to put so much water cooling equipment into a case while showing it off at the same time. So with the power of Shaun's architecture degree & CAD knowledge and my case modding/water cooling skills we figured we would start something of our own.
We have come a long way in this year. I would approximate we have easily used thousands of Euros on Acrylic in the testing and building stages of the S1.0 . It has had its ups and downs and has been extremely frustrating at times but I would say we are finally happy with our first of many products.
We have every intention to start to involve far more people in expanding Parvum Systems and when we develop the S2.0. We would love nothing more than to involve more people. Get opinions and even meet up with other case modders and builders to help provide the market with exactly what they want.

This project log will feature an adapted version of the S1.0. It will be a reverse ATX version of the case. We will also be milling a custom reservoir for the roof of the case and a few other surprises along the way. The beauty of this project is anything that we create will defiantly be something we will look to sell as an extra or a future product on the Parvum Store.

Our S1.0 case can currently be purchased on the highflow store here or the OCUK store here!

Here are a few photos of our warehouse space and what runs Parvum Systems:



















In the next update (a few days time) we will show you the CAD designs & the initial CNC cutting of the panels.

Thanks for reading, see you on the next one!

Thank you both very much!

UPDATE TIME!

So to continue with the rebuild to get all the cable management in place. We did it almost in a backwards fashion. No cable holes initially then after a full rig build mark up the exact measurements and cut again. Long winded indeed but gets the finish we wanted.

60mm Alphacool back in place:



Gentle fans installed via the second layer/accent panel:



Would like to welcome Pexon on board. We met James from Pexon at iSeries and got to spend a good bit of time together. We have actually traded work for work here and this is a shot of the PSU as you may have seen already if you follow his work:



Next some floppy tubing that needs to be used in places that wont be seen in the final. It was impossible to not use any in a build so small but it wont be seen. Also the 8pin EPS for the motherboard:






With the Enermax fans installed:



And as promised the EK block changed to clear/frosted:



We had been lucky enough to part exchange an old card for a second GPU and got the matching block for it. SLI connector goodness here from EK:



A little idea of what is going on up there to make this thing all happen. Lots of holes, lots of mad connectors. Excuse the mixture of fittings. These won't be visible so it didn't have to all be bitspower 😉



So now because of the second GPU that we didn't take into account efficiently we had to change the tube routing. It doesn't look as amazing as the all in line tubing but after seeing it filled with tester fluid it still looks amazing and we are really happy.
Here are some photos of the fittings and changes:







A few random shots of the PSU cables and the top chamber, starting to take shape:




To end the update a few shots of the routing system. Though not all direct to the top they work really nice and straight tubing is killer:




Again thank you SO much for reading. It means everything to us. Please throw questions, advice and/or ideas at us!

See you on the next one!! :rock:

Looks awesome guys, really 🙂 saw your post earlier on FaceBook, the black and red one with the etched in (dragon?) design...THAT was just beautiful.

First up thanks for following us on Facebook! That's awesome. Glad you liked the case; I think it may be stuck in customs at the moment as they think it is a brief case... 😕 its gone to Iceland!

Oh good grief!!! where was it headed? and hey no worries, I saw your prices on the site and I am pretty floored at how low you guys are offering your cases for...hell I might have to buy one for my Media Centre PC Build 😉 btw...Would it be possible to have one supporting 6 3.5 instead? or 5 and 1 2.5?

Hi there. Our machine was built for us in the UK by a friend so I would't be able to advice here. If you mean motherboard standoffs you can grab them on eBay or most modding sites 🙂

!!UPDATE!!

Time to manage some cables.

Sponsors:









So first we work on the top chamber. A portion of this will be kept visible from above so these will be managed with some degree of care. The back of the case will be contained so we don't have to be as careful.

We begin by using MDPC clips and clamping each 6 cable bundle to the acrylic:



To fit these cables we use brass inserts and M3 bolts:




To insert the brass peices into the acrylic we used the good old solder iron trick that we first spotted on a project log some time back:






Finishing the rest of the GPU power leads:




Moving to the back of the case; more of the same but as I said not important here to keep it tidy, these wont be seen. The only reason we are doing it is to take any cable bulge or pressure off of the side panel:




With the 24pin we just cable tie it to the other cables. Again we are not going to make this look perfect as it will be housed with acrylic:




Sadly that is all for today folks. Just keeping you in the loop!

uh..sorry to bother you again but can you tell me whats the thickness of the aluminium you use? i have a router (my father) about 6m x 2m its a multicam 3000 but i have never used it for alyminium or steel...only pexiglass...and as im also modding my case i need to know if i can use it for cutting my pieces instead of sending them for laser cut.
