Subbed.

Since you have the CPU block listed, I'm guessing you're not getting the monoblock for the RVE10... In that case, will you be getting the 2 piece set from EK when it's released? If so, do you think you'll use the PCH block or would stripping it be too much to bear for you too?

Just gonna keep the one i got for it, don't think ill upgrade to the two piece. The way i have things mapped out i don't even think i could make it fit lol, when i slide my MoBo tray into the case its basically hit the fans from the top radiator:o

Well I ran into my first hiccup the other day. I just had gotten all the fans mounted and ran to the Aquearo and i was having checking out the interface and playing with the fan control software, which BTW has quite the learning cure to it lol. And i could not figure out for the life of my why my side radiator's fans wouldn't change speed, after going back and forth between the Aquear software and the hardware i finally found this...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It was in the sleeving i guess the heat shrink wasn't fully tight to the wire and slipped off when i sleeved it.

Update. I got the Acrylic in and mounted, ran some LEDs and ran the wire through the case.




Don't worry for the final pic ill make sure ill wipe down the acrylic biggrin.gif
Also side note the Hex Gear wire comb was a serious pain in the butt, they seriously need to make those holes a few millimeters bigger.
