    The LEDs in that top should be blue, just like the top. A bit of extra bling.

    I just love what this project has created; Someone can't get a system to POST, and people from the four corners of the globe jump up to help. It's not often something like this happens.

    Glad to see the system pulling together, it should be quite stunning when it's all put together.

    CPU block is a little too large the base hits the caps near the socket so I am going to look for a small piece of copper to use as a shim.

    When Cheaps made the water blocks for H2O-C7, I sent him a duplicate motherboard and he fitted it exactly. Not an option for this build.

    He was concerned about these caps.

    Modding is about overcoming obstacles not having everything fit and work perfect out of the box. I love his block and pump top . . .they will look sechy. I have some nice Arctic Silver Thermal Glue which will make a copper shim work as well as the block on its own :brrr:

    Aw crap. I had a feeling this might happen. Some boards the caps are short enough, some not.
    I shipped a load of tiny O-rings to pad the pump mount discreetly. ;)
