Update: finally got my motherboard ordered; it'll be here this week. And then: let the games begin! Keep your eyes peeled for build pictures in the next few days.

Big update: All the parts are finally coming together; the final piece- Asus Maximus V Formula motherboard- will be here tomorrow. I expect to be up and running this Saturday \o/ go me! (If you can't tell, I'm just a *little* bit excited to finally finish this project, I've been back for a whole month now and haven't been able to do anything but drool over my parts pile. I did score a nice UPS from work, so that's a plus.

And here are some motivational pictures/parts-porn. (Album Link for full size) Enjoy! (Please pardon my photography skills, or complete lack thereof...)

Continuing on from last night, starting to assemble here; in this post, it's installing the fans and storage mediums (SSDs, HDD, and ODD). Should have a much much more interesting update in about 2 hours, once the motherboard finally arrives (UPS says it's on the truck for delivery). Anyways, here's some pics:

Case in it's unboxed and unbagged state. Nothing done yet.
P8020046.JPG

Replaced stock 120mm exhaust fan with AF140 Quiet, removed upper drive cage assembly
P8020047.JPG

Removed the front panel, dust shield, and stock 120mm intake fans (stacked to the right).
P8020048.JPG

Installing the new AF120 Quiets, tray-side view.
P8020050.JPG

Fans installed, dust cover replaced.
P8020051.JPG

Fans and front panel installed. Prepping the drive trays for SSDs. Lower intake AF120 Quiet installed for GPU cooling.
P8020052.JPG

P8020054.JPG

SSDs mounted, installed.
P8020055.JPG

Prepping the side panel for intake fans.
P8020056.JPG

Dust cover installed, very subtle accents.
P8020059.JPG

From the tray side, ready for the rest of the components. Generous cable routing channel.

I would, but I really don't have a whole lot of reason to add any additional heat generators to the interior, considering this is an almost-silent build with no window. Maybe for pictures I'll add some lighting, but nothing that runs constantly.
