Frozen Parvum - Aquatuning Staff Build

So what's the story behind this build?

Basically during an impromptu LAN party with a few close friends my glorious other half came in from a night out with the girls pi**ed as a fart... Kicked me off my PC during a game of Titian Fall and proceeded to play it quite well.

Declaring she was now a gamer she asked me to build her a PC for her birthday... Easy I thought... Then she said she wanted it to be pretty and custom made and she wanted the theme to be Frozen (Yes the Disney film )



Although I would indeed rather build a snowman I thought about it and came up with an awesome plan. Knowing she will be pushed for space as she has a small flat I opted for an small ITX build.

Now armed with a theme, rough spec list and idea my first port of call was obvious my good friends @ Parvum Systems are rather good at making custom cases. They jumped at the task and actually took it over entirely not even letting me see the design before delivery! Cheeky but they knew i'd probably make it look tacky so I left them to it!

Here come the pics!



Building up the case - Parvum ITX :P

The case comes flat packed for shipping but is childs play to put together and actually really good fun :P





Fully built





Due to the simple nature of the build and the fun and games of getting cables in the right place while screwing the case back together I didn't bother with during the build pics but here you can see what it eneded up like.

I have to give a big shout out to Pexon Pcs for the amazing custom cables - much love and Silverstone for providing the cooling Yes its an AIO but it matches the theme too well not to use it!



Witht he side on:



yes it needs a dust :P



Bit of an arty shot for social media :P



Now that i had put all that effort into the case I thought i would have a bit of fun with the wrapping as you cant really find snow flake wrapping paper in August...



Finished and delivered - thank goodness!



Great use of a gaming PC.... looking at handbags... lol



Full desk shot all white im sure TTL will approve:
