From a technical standpoint, it's fantastic but aesthetically, to me at least, this looks messy, just too many fittings and too much going on. Complicated for complicated's sake.

It feels to me like one of those, "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" type of deals.

Again, totally personal opinion and personal taste, but, I had to say it because I enjoy most of the Parvum builds, but this one's just not doing it for me, sorry guys.
Sorry guys, but I'm gonna go with SuB(titles) on this one...

Subtle lighting but it suites the rig very well. One day I'd love to build a custom loop in a Parvum case as well, but I doubt I'll reach this level of epicness

Awesome work, love your attention to detail
Thanks guys, we're really happy with how it's looking and just how much of the case is illuminated with the LED strip. It is a lot like a tiny Magnus in it's style and some of the techniques and materials used. They would of looked great together.

The planning and preparation that must have gone in to this, really paying off.

Never seen that type of coolant before, very nice. If only it stayed separated .



Definitely looking forward to the final pictures.
I think it's the same coolant Tom used in Orca and one of the loops in Magnus used it too. It's very opaque so even a thin layer will appear like solid coolant unlike a more translucent blood red that highlights different depths.

There's no need to apologize, there are many different styles and tastes of watercooling and we can see why this chaotic fitting spider might not be for everyone! To clarify this rig was put together for our friend who wanted something totally out there and mind blowing with as much water cooling that we could cram into a VEER.

He will be attending i55 with us at the end of the month and often comes along to the smaller LAN's so it is just as much a show rig. Consequently it needed to appeal to people with absolutely no technical knowledge of watercooling amongst hundreds of PC's screaming for visual hierarchy. For that reason, purely its audience, everything is exaggerated and complicated, a clean simple technically excellent loop would go completely un-noticed. We think that it's a great and slightly more sophisticated direction to go with it rather than just making it brightly colored with insane lighting.

Well it sounds like you're hitting the brief 100% If that's what they wanted, then it's perfect. It's still technically great, it's just the aesthetics I'm not keen on which as you said is totally for a purpose I still admire it all the same

PARVUM SHEEDY found its way onto the ASUS ROG stand at i55 and they kindly lent us a G751 to take it's place in the LAN halls. Plenty more minds were lost over the weekend figuring out the loop order
