I'll take photos tomorrow afternoon. There's very little slack in the u.2. It goes up, out the first grommet, in the second, and a little slack before the drive. You're going to have a hard time putting the fan board on the 2.5" mount.The screw spacing is very wide on the board.

I can always drill the appropriate holes for it…

I am already resigned to drilling holes to properly mount the D5 pump to the provided pump bracket… There are plenty of holes in that bracket for various assorted pumps, just none matching the pattern used by the EK D5 Revo pump holder…

And I have to drill holes in both the top of the chassis & the bottom of the chassis for the fill & drain ports…

So I guess the entirety of the 'modding' of the chassis would be "I drilled eight holes"…

I wish Intel would hurry up and come out with their alternative SKU model(s) of the 750 series 2.5" SSD…

There is supposed to be a version that has a M.2 connector on the end of the provided cable, rather than the current U.2 connector…

This would really simplify things, as the cable would plug into the M.2 slot on the back of the MB (NOT the Asus M8I, obviously, I would have to go with a different MB; and, sadly, a 'regular' CPU water block, as opposed to the sexy as hell mono block …!) and would have plenty of slack to reach the forward mounting point…!

Thanks for all the advice & tips so far…!

Heck, nothing wrong with going water cool build for function. I actually like seeing those. Kind of the direction I may go with my folder in the Define S, but of course I am using rigid tubing since I still have a lot left over and barbs for it. I just don't bother with the color crap. Don't want the headache of cleaning that out of a loop. I'm already lazy as is. tongue.gif Well, more slow to get around to doing stuff. It is bad I still have a 3930k on a RIVBE just sitting around not running atm. Think when the 5960x and x99 mobo show up get my slow butt and just do both my rigs at the same time with part changes.

That fan board looks sweet though. Where can one find that? Could use that when I add the three more eLoops to my main rig to finally go push/pull on the top radiator. Probably will need it when the 5960x goes in. Heard those put some serious heat out when OC.

The fan board came with the mobo.

just finished building this with gigabte z170x gaming 7 motherboard, i7 6700k @ 4.8ghz, R9 Fury nitro, samsung 950 pro m.2 drive and 4 more ssd drives all mounted at the rear and a corsair 280mm h110 cooler with 4 fans and 4 shrouds in push pull configuration. The shrouds made a big improvement to noise levels.
Has a filtered 140mm intake side fan fitted to the door, another 140mm fan at the bottom as intake and the water cooling rad is set up as an intake also. 2 exhaust fans one at the top and one at the rear. very pleased with this case and i would thoroughly reccomend.

Hmmm, I know I have my first PSU around here somewhere. Its a corsair TX as well. Can't remember the watts off the top of my head. I usually use it to test fans or other parts before putting them in my case.
