Just got back from MicroCenter. Picked up my i5-3570k and confirmed they had the rest of my hardware that I will be purchasing in a few days.

Big Update!

Purchased almost all of my hardware today, really happy with the results!
Will be editing photos and uploading tonight!























Plugged everything in to see if anything was defective or problematic but everything is functioning like a champ!

Update 11/12/12
Started to strip the case to see what could really fit in the case.



Going to be throwing a Triple 120mm Rad in the front. No big deal.

Update: 11/13/2012

So last night I started to tear apart the case to see what modding could be done that I did not know was possible without getting my hands on the case.






So the plan here is to use modding mesh to match the top cover down the middle and I will fit a soft touch fan controller so I can control all of my fans when necessary. I considered just putting them all on PMW but I feel that more cables to the motherboard will just be problematic for me. Any thoughts?

Rather small update, I just didn't want to leave you subs in the dark as to the progress on this project. I would have already purchased the rest of my liquid cooling parts and accessories but I am going to be playing at IPL 5 for the SM wildcard bracket so it set me back a little bit for the moment. For more information on IPL 5 for those of you not informed: http://www.ign.com/ipl/all/ipl-5
I will resume the project on the 15th or so, so keep your eyes peeled because this one is going to be a dosey.

On other great news, I did happen to catch an OCZ Vertex 4 256gb SSD on Black Friday for cheap so that should be arriving shortly.

I just got a small package in from ModDIY, just some cable materials.


I also have another amazing package on the way from a new sponsor! (WEWT WEWT ^.^) I don't want to spoil any of the fun so i am going to keep it a secret until someone guesses it or it comes in tongue.gif

All of my other purchases should be in around January since the holiday mail delays everything :/
