The M8E is a good one, CPU is absolutely brilliant, got it delidded.
I'm waiting on samples to arrive from IceModz so I can match the best gray to my build and order the PSU cables, they might arrive today.
I tell ya man, the view I have with the black exterior panels looking through the side and top windows onto the gunmetal gray interior frame the contrast is absolutely beautiful, really happy I'm rocking two-tones with white accents, its breathtaking, everything I really wanted in this work build.
Parts mounted on the Caselabs ATX mobo tray:
I'm swapping out the Seasonic Snow Silent white PSU in this pic for the Seasonic 850watt Titanium Prime launching in mid-July, the white PSU is moving to my 2ndary rig, the all gunmetal S8 test bench. Doing a basic gray/white themed build with that rig.
I guess my life is colorless.
My fittings, went all Bits this time and first time using the matching Bits thermal probes, I hope they work ok, thus far I've been using the AquaComputer inline ring temp probes, they work extremely well with the Aquaero 6, hoping for the same results with the Bits thermal.
Yup, there's the white accents I was talking about.
This part I ended up not using, the EK XTOP dual D5. My case just is not large enough to reasonably accommodate the size, nor do I really need two D5s for cooling a single 6770K. But it is a gorgeous part.
Would probably be right at home in your larger build.
OK that's enough pics, don't want to post too much. I tend to do that every once in awhile cuz I get excited over my build.
