Removed the front panel, and started hacking holes for the up front, and one ontop:

Mastercard came back from RMA yesterday afternoon. Before it arrived, I did a rough-fit to make sure it would all fit, including changing chipset fan:

Hole filler for the wire entry from the top rad:

How did you get the Iceberq to properly mount on the chipset?
I thought it was a GPU cooler....

A little bit of determination, and this wonderful thing called a Dremel. I "moved" one hole over about 3mm, and was all set.

You cut holes in such a good looking case. Your mad I love you I think. But just as a modder.:eek:

Lots of work to be done yet. Got the mastercard block on yesterday, and am currently dealing with air bubbles. Need lexan for the window, and window trim, a few fans, and a light or two. Camera battery is charging...more pics when it does.

Added second card...wires managed a bit, awaiting lights and fans to arrive. Hacking the door today.
