Thanks for the positive feedback!

All up and running, no hardware lost during the move. I can get it fairly quiet using the built-in fan controller and PWM on the pump at 50%. Still audible, but not a huge annoyance.

Temperatures seem about the same as my old case, mid-30's on the GPU and mid-40's on the CPU at idle. GPU got up to 47C and the CPU up to 61C during some ANNO 2070. I'm sure some might say that's a bit high, but this is an i7 920 w/ HT enabled at 4.2GHz, so it's probably pushing well over the 130W TDP and the GTX580 is by no means a cool running card either Maybe once I get some 32nm or 28nm parts in this, things will be cooler.

Here's a shot of the backside for those that care. Not the most organized by any means, but it works and fits behind the door without any force.

Since I'm back at work, it's time to resurrect my worklog and add some new additions to it

The stars aligned apparently and everything showed up today. As you can see, I got all the necessary parts to split my loop into two. The GPU and CPU will be separated now. And to change up the colour, I went for orange to contrast my existing blue. Should look pretty nice, especially with my split reservoir.

However! I'm still debating LGA2011, so I won't be installing anything for now...
