Yeah I was thinking that too. I think once I get the final piece of tubing in, it'll help push it up some as well since the tubing needs to make a slight bend to get into the existing hole w/ grommet.

I simply don't want to invest any money into LGA2011 currently. When I do though, it'll surely be either an E-ATX or XL-ATX board which will fill up the space a bit better.

The radiator would still cover a good chunk of the motherboard though, would it not? I'm sure I could of drilled some new holes and done the same, but I'd rather be able to access everything without having to remove parts to get to something else.
