Budget is not an issue, but wait time is some what an issue.

man 6 weeks wait.... not including shipping time, that's like 2 to 3 months....

I have a question.
if I choose the SSI EEB option, does it let me use regular size ATX and EATX motherboards?

That Mercury S8 case is awesome for Watercooling, lots of Radiator mount spaces, 2 on the top, 1 on the side, and I'll keep the front 5.25 bays for HDDs, I'm a sucker for windows, If traded in the windows I could add even more Radiator spaces, but then... what's the point if you can't see anything inside with the Rads blocking the view
