Dude, MO that new PC looks sweet dude! I'll admit I've been out of the PC tinkering for a long time now since I work on big computers all day long but this is giving me that itch back I think. Post some finished pics asap!

does it run on 110 or do you need to put in a 220 dedicated line?

lol, though because of the smaller box, there is less room for fans/air movement, so i now have to custom cut and sleeve my psu cables so they don't block air to the vrm/ram area on the mobo.

ok, incoming molex tools/replacement pins, and this fan controller for the AP-30 fans:
http://www.frozencpu...l?tl=g47c17s286

my 'mod' re the ap-30s for pwm did not work on the asus boards fan sockets (full blast, they, the ap-30, are like hovercrafts, and loud!), and i can hook the water pump up to the controller, as the pump is as loud/like 3 regular pumps, pressure wise...no wonder it blew out seals!). i also have to get a fan shield for the 4x 180mm, as they are not the slow soft fans you see on youtube reviews for the phobya 1080: the silverstone fans are high powered, and have cut my hands more than once while moving the case around...
