The time has come to begin my new build log!

I've been acquiring all of the various parts for this build over the last few months but have been waiting on my custom extended Parvum S2.0 case to be made, and I've today had the email from Parvum to confirm that it will arrive with me tomorrow!

I had also a requested an ROG inlay be cut out of the front panel of the case at the top (above the fan cutouts) but from what I hear from the guys at Parvum, they've done it slightly differently this time around (which is not new for these guys, they're always discovering new ways of doing things. Their expertise never ceases to impress!) Anyway, more on that later...

Here is a quick run down of some of the parts i'll be using so you know what to expect:

Hardware
----------
Case: Custom Extended Parvum S2.0 w/ ROG logo [Black/Red]
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VI Gene [Black/Red]
Processor: Intel i7 4770K
Memory: 16Gb (4x4Gb) Corsair Dominator GT 1866Mhz - [Black w/ Red Cooling Fins]
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200i
Hard Disks: 2 x Corsair Force GS 240Gb SSD's in Raid 0 [Red]
Graphics: 2 x Sapphire R9 290

Watercooling
-------------
Motherboard Block: EK Plexi Nickel Mosfet Block
CPU Block: EK Supremacy Plexi Nickel
Graphics Blocks: EK Plexi Nickel w/ EK Backplates
Pump: EK-DDC 3.2 X-RES 140
Radiators: GTS Stealth 360, GTS Lite 120 x 2
Tubing: Tygon R3603

In addition to this lot, I had James at Pexon PC's make up some MDPC-X PSU Extensions (24 pin, 8 pin, 2 x 6 pin PCI-E, 2 x 8 pin PCI-E and 4 x SATA cables) in Red/Black/Grey. Would recommend his work to anyone who's looking for a perfect job when it comes to cable braiding! See below for some teasers :)

Photos taken by James @ Pexon PCs before he sent them out to me:

That's it for now. Hoping to take some more photos once my case arrives then will be looking to start the build over the weekend!

I'm really looking forward to doing this build. My current build is a Mini ITX in a Bitfenix prodigy, which, whilst being a great little case, doesn't really lend itself to watercooling as well. Hoping the Parvum will be a much better case to work with.

From what I've seen in other peoples builds it certainly seems that way.

I did see your build snips86x, it's very nice indeed and definitely gave me some inspiration whilst I've been waiting for my Parvum :)

After a slight hiccup with the delivery of my case going to my home address instead of my work address I missed the delivery, so won't have it until Monday now :(

But in the meantime, here's a shot of all the bits waiting for it to arrive!
