[Build Log] <<<<<<<< "Parvum Warfare" >>>>>>>>


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:


Main Components:

Case - Parvum Systems custom mITX
CPU - Intel 4790k
Motherboard - EVGA Z97 Stinger
Memory - (still undecided)
GPU - Nvidia Titan Black
SSD - (still undecided)
PSU - (still undecided)

Watercooling Components:

CPU Block - Swiftech Apogee XL
GPU Block - Swiftech Komodo NV LE
Radiators - Darkside 120mm and 240mm
Ram Block - (still undecided - may not use one)
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
Darkside lighting
Custom vinyl and paintwork by me

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.

Let's get this thing started!!!

Here's the finished build!

Hello, James. I'm a bit late to the party, but I just want you to know that I absolutely loved Robocop 900D.


Also, was your design mockup to Parvum also done in MS Paint this time?

56k warning!

Here's some goodies from Swiftech, the Apogee XL and the KOMODO NV LE. With the LED lighting feature these pieces will be perfect for customization in the build.

First One here is the KOMODO NV LE GPU block for the Titan Black. The weight of this thing is nuts and it absolutely oozes quality. You can see in some of my macro shots how good the fit and finish on this thing is. I love that it also has a very robust, military grade look to it and it will look amazing in the build - particularly with the orientation of the GPU in the case...
