The case came in and I assembled everything on my lunch break at work. Everything works fine and now I'm waiting for the cables I ordered from Ensourced.net and some more of my water cooling parts.

Subbed.

I've got an S5 myself, and this pretty much the exact thing I would love to do with it someday, add a pedestal and go X99. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress and the end result. smile.gif

Subbed.. looking forward to seeing how the new AC Rad works out for you: any chance you can let us know how easy it would be to black it out like the AMS Rad?
