This is going to be an awesome build! Looking forward to more updates.
I try to take pics of each step I do. It just gets hard sometimes when both hands are occupied to get something done. As I mentioned earlier, build logs (in my opinion) should be like a diary of the build, and properly organized ones are extremely useful for other people searching for reference info when they go to build.

The current heat spreaders shouldn't be too hard to remove. They are different from the regular Dominator GT's, but shouldn't pose any major issue.
I am actually really excited about getting the new heat spreaders in for the RAM. I think it will look MUCH better in the build. I have also been holding off on the videocard mounting due to wanting to get my painting sorted. I have a couple ideas to give some extra flare/personalization to the motherboard with a few items I still need to do (one of which requires painting), I just need to get the hardware/items needed to make it happen, aka a low volume paint gun)
