Thank you very much!
It was my first build ever.
I used the Parvum Systems S2.0. It wasn't customized. You can find them on https://www.parvumsystems.com/products. Sorry for the late reply.
I built this computer two years ago so Maxwell and Pascal were not released! I also believe that a 780ti outperform a 970 (in gaming). If I had to make an upgrade to the Project Orange Horizon, I would either by another 780ti and configure it in SLI or sell my current 780ti and buy a 1080 as you suggested. That being said, the 1080 with a waterblock is really expensive in Canada (more than 1,000$ CAD) so I guess I'll wait before making an update.
At this moment, I only have one monitor and I'm pleased with the performance of a 780ti. I don't even play in Full HD since my monitor doesn't support such resolution. I want to but a new monitor (asus rog swift pg279q or dell s2716dg) but again, they are pricey so I'll wait for a good deal.
Thank you! Let me know if you need any help!
and cheaper hehe. I recently bought orange-transparent vinyl. I'll try to apply on the crystal light bar next time I clean my loop...
For a more professional look, you can find some colors on http://mainframecustom.com/shop/accessories/light-bar-inserts/
Used a marker and painted the crystal light bar!
I was looking for something different. I was bored with the most-popular cases since they were too common. I then found the Parvum Titanfall by Jameswalt1 and told myself this is exactly what I wanted to do. I looked around and found out that Parvum Systems were selling the S2.0 in the UK so I decided to buy one!
Yes, I definitely need a new monitor. I'm waiting the next black Friday to see if I can get something. I keep an eye on a BenQ XL2430T and a BenQ XL2420G. I can't go wider than 24" with this desk...
Yes, the case has two chambers. The right one is for the radiators, the pump, the motherboard, the cpu, the memory and the video card. The left chamber is for the power supply and the storage units (in my case, a 500GB SSD since I do already have a NAS
Thank you! By the way, I changed my mouse to a Corsair RGB M65 (White). I still have the Razer Lycosa Mirror because I'm still looking for a good looking mechanical keyboard. White mechanical keyboard with RGB backlight and MX Brown switch are not common :(
I do like it. I never had any problem with it. I even built a second rig with the same CPU.
I'm really happy with the i5. I do only play games with this build and I haven't encountered any problems.
I believe the i7 is better for video edit & multitask because they require multiple threads to do the work. That being said, it doesn't mean the i5 wouldn't work for you. I guess it would take more time to fulfill the different tasks. Unfortunately, I don't know if it would take seconds, minutes or more hours to complete... For gaming, you don't necessary need hyper-threading so an i5 is perfect.
I'm not a CPU guru so I'm not really sure if I can provide more information!
Well, you can build your own one. I can also sell you mine if you are really interested. Finally, I can build you a custom one if needed.
Wow, this is a really nice idea!
Yeah, I agree. The only thing I think that is almost cheaper than in the USA or in Europe are the Bitspower fittings!
Haha, I like it :)
Yes you can
Thank you :)
The speakers are the "JBL pebbles" and the headphone is the "JBL J88". I guess you can go on the JBL website and see what color they have or you could simply paint/pasti-dip/vinyl them :)
Pricing in Canada is ridiculous expensive. Don't forget I bought that one last summer so pricing might have changed.
I like it, I'm only gaming so it has everything I wanted!
Thank you mate!
For the interior, I use a compressed air can once a month.
For the exterior, I clean it every week.
Hey, I did buy the z87 armor kit for the z97 motherboard. They work perfectly. I couldn't find the z97 armor kit at that time.
I bought the LED strips on Dazmode.com. The Enermax fans also light-up by default.
I did paint the GPU backplate, the radiators and the motherboard's armor kit.
You're welcome. I bought my desk at a local store and I love it. http://www.structube.com/en/office/desks/34341010-harvard
The video card is fine. As for the fluid, just mix everything together before. My system only use 600ml of fluid and it can be hard to gauge before filling it...
The EK-FC780 GTX Ti Backplate - Black that I painted white (http://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc780-gtx-ti-backplate-black.html)
1) Stick as much as possible with the reference models for your video card(s). For example, the classified, the kingpin or the matrix edition of a 780TI are too big for that case. 2) White acrylic can be a little bit messy so if you don't want to clean your PC every week, then don't use white acrylic.
I did use 750ml of distilled water with 250ml of Mayhems Orange Pastel Coolant Concentrate
Thank you, for some reasons "Parvum" doesn't show up in the Case manufacturer even if the compatibility is turned-off.
I bought it from overclockers.co.uk because it was the only website shipping to Canada at that time, but you can now find them on performance-pcs.com
Hi, I'm not really sure if I understand your question so I'll give you as much information as possible. The case come with only the acrylic panels. I built a custom loop to watercool the video card and the processor. In order to achieve that, I needed a pump, a reservoir and 2 radiators. As for the fluid, I wanted it to be orange so I bought a pastel orange from Mayhems coolant (250ml) which I mixed with 750ml of distilled water. I then used this 1L to fill the custom loop. I wanted the system to be watercooled for the wow-factor. However, someone can buy the case and do normal air-cooling or an all-in-one (AIO) water-cooling. Does it help?
I just checked the size of a 980 and it is too long to fit in that case (when you have a front radiator and a pump/res). The 970 fits even if it is 2mm longer than my 780TI. It was one of the reason also why I didn't take a classified or kingpin edition since they were too long.
I like that case, I would have bought it if they had it in white!
No worries, no offense taken!
Yes I did buy the video card in July. Now I'm crossing my fingers that the price for the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked w/ EVGA ACX Cooler (03G-P4-2884-KR) will drop so I can buy another one configure it in SLI.
