    Block and backplate on, flushed, and leak tested. Did an initial run with a little heat on it, to see where the temps would be. I'm very impressed with this block.....

    Very nice looking block Vellinious. Really like the look of the rig also. Hard to beat open case when you are playing around so much.

    Yeah, that's why I bought it. I have them stacked, so all the "ugly" is in the bottom case, and hidden behind the acrylic panels beneath the motherboard tray, and I can still have it open to mess with it...as it seems, I always am. = )

    - Did some cable management

    - Removed mechanical hard drives and cages, replaced with 3 x 1TB Samsung EVO in Raid-0, backup on an external WD 3TB

    - Considering intake at the bottom because I ordered the 750D normal, not the airflow. The moment I put the front panel on, it switch from positive to negative airflow. Still waiting on corsair airflow kit for front panel, but this will depend on the setup with the hybrid EVGA I ordered.

    - Removed Optical drive for better look. Considering drilling out the rivets to take out the optical cage bay.

    - Tried Corsair Quiet Led Fans, not sure I like them, trying out for a couple weeks, sucks that the radiator SP fans are 3 pins, can't control from Corsair Link.

    - I've 2 x EVGA Hybrid arriving Friday, this will be a fun challenge to install that in the case with 2 x 120MM Rads. Will provide pics when done. I also ordered the updated shrouds because the regular 980Ti Hybrids are fugly. I know they are reference cards but I don't care much about GPU benchmarks at this point, all I want is cold cards, a quiet profile and I'm too lazy to build and maintain a custom loop.

    Note: Sorry for the wall of text.
