I have all the equipment I need now. Just need to pull apart the case one more time to drill new screw holes for the pump. Besides that all I needs it a test fit before going to get powder coated.

Drilled the remaining holes. Then the test fit. This is the wrong power supply since I am using the one for this machine in my main machine while I resleeve it. Now as soon as I finish up the LC17B case I'll drop off the parts at the powdercoaters.

very nice build, have been looking forward to seeing this completed for a while!

if you moved the fans to the other side of the rad do you htink you'd be able to fit a full matx board in there?

If I do this I can't install the front panel connectors.

EDIT: Although I've heard a Magicool radiator is a bit slimmer and would allow a normal MATX board. The only reason I bought the EK radiator was for so called better paint. Was disappointed w/ the paint job so I very well may buy a Magicool radiator next time I purchase something from Performance-PC's.
