Mm... nice stuff there.. What tubing is that if I may ask, never heard of that company before.. Although I have to say, if you ever have the budget that can be extended, get Primochill tubing, awesome bend radius, it looks slick, and god.. nice UV effect too really.. Only problem, it can tend to be a dust magnet..

Anyhow, nice to see some updates..

Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with my case! Are you going to use the top?

Word of warning: I notice you're using a v1 microres - the top port is NOT G1/4 like any sane company would have made it. So you'll have to either retap it if you want to put another plug into it. Can't remember what the exact threading is, but I'm 99% positive that it's some stupidly obscure threading that nothing else in the world uses.

Been using the top since day one.
And thanks for that heads up, just about went looking for a new 1/4" BSP one. Seems it's a PG7 thread, which is related to electrical sizes. (Or so I'm finding) FML.

I guess I lied. UPS should be delivering the mobo and RAM tomorrow.
As well, I picked up two cheap Thermaltake sleeving kits just for my fans and SATA cables. Seems they decided to give you heat shrink that is slightly too large for the sleeving they provide. So with that said, the fan cables are sleeved pretty noobishly, but I think the SATA went well as I stretched the smaller heat shrink over the connector so I could make sure I had it tight enough.
So, here's what I started off with:





Popped the wires out of the 3 pin with a paper clip:



And jump to final results:

That's some sweet sleeving right there. I know you said you won't be using that dusty block, but for future reference try using a brush. Pardon my drool please.

Stretched the (I think) 3/8" tubing over the end connector, and then stretched the heat shrink with pliers just far enough to be able to get it over the connector. The 3/8" sleeving is absolutely perfect sized for the SATA cable.

Here comes the onslaught of pictures. Whoohoo!

Box was in surprisingly good condition even though it came from UPS. Oh, and of course Inspector Kitty had to take a peek.






Inside we go.





The goods. Opening that motherboard box made me happy since I got revision 1.6 which means less work for me because I don't have to flash to the newest BIOS. Yay!









And the RAM and CPU in, going to do a test run before I start piecing together everything.
