I got my exiting Samsung 830 120GB SSD but thinking of utilizing the built in m-SATA port on the Asrock Z77E-ITX board. I understand that the port only can support up to SATA 3Gb/s speed right? And i afraid that i have to cut some part of my CPU waterblock back plate as to make way for the m-sata ssd. Anyone can put some light on this issue?
Hmm I have the Asus P8Z77-I So I cannot do anything like that nor can I help

I'd have to get crimpers, pins, and possibly plugs but I figure that the little touches will make this build amazing! Anyone have any thoughts or other ideas?
I will be ordering custom sleeved cables from ModDIY that are SUPPOSED to work with the PSU. My friend did it for his PSU and they turned out decently ok so I will be doing the same.

Using black cables w/o sleeving is a really cool idea. The narrower wires would be a huge plus given the space, as long as you use new wiring w/o kinks. Last time I was at Radio Shack they had green wire too so that could be an option given the UV green you're planning to use (although it is darker and more of a forest green than toxic/lime).
When your ready to be added just drop another post here and it can be done!

A very nifty idea by going full steel and later modding the sidepanel - wish I could do that but I know every inch of the case innards are meant for viewing.

I know the case would be distraction enough for my buddies to game later and ogle now!
@ aliff - I too was contemplating using the msata port but I've been reading of most people having clearance issues with the bottom the board and the case panel - and the new issue you've mentioned is the need to cutout some of the support from the waterblock backplate. If I were you, maybe look into the Heatkiller 3.0 waterblocks - since as of 2010 they stopped providing the backplate of the and have washers that according to (watercool support via email) say is more than adequate to apply proper mounting pressure on the cpu and block. Though my advice will need a lot of salt for digestion in light of your chosen watercooling hardware.
Question to all - Watercooling ; Custom or H220?
@ golfergolfer - I just had a lil idea - why don't we include a chart to show off the members color scheme and their numbers(for now)? and possibly have a pic of the members case under their names? instead of having the list of people with the cases? when all the purchases and orders have been finalized?
@ SLE - welcome to your thread
I say custom watercooling but if you do not feel like dropping the money to do it the H220 is a great alternative!
We can definitively do that! I have an idea of how it world work already! Not sure how to put it together now as no one has their case but renders are an option too
We can continue talking and figure something out
I cant link you to the site here but if you want shoot me off a PM and I can get you jumped started on it if you are planning on buying one
As for the PSU I dont think yours will fit because the specs for it are
150 mm (W) x 86 mm (H) x 140 mm (D)
Versus the ST45SF-G which is
125 mm (W) × 63.5 mm(H) × 100 mm(D)
So you might have to work some magic
