This is my first Intel build since i5 750.
and probably more changes on the way, but I do love the way it is at the moment.
I've done some minor changes to the case Corsair 800D
Cut down bottom to make it fit EK-CoolStream RAD XTC 280 with push and pull fans
Also cut top-front bay to make it fit XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir
..................
More pictures and video still on the way

Moved your post to Intel Build logs section so other builders can appreciate your great work. Nice water cooling job. thumb.gif

I'm one of those who pay attention to aesthetics and I like your build. smile.gif

One question, how did you get the blue to illuminate it's focus on the mother board area? Did you make customized LED wires?

No it's not customized just a regular XSPC Blue LED which came with reservoir biggrin.gif
I've place them right near by PCI-e socket under each card.

Love the CPU block, I just picked one up myself though I'll be swapping out the blue LEDs for white!
Nice build!
