I don't see what you're asking for input on, so I have to agree with mods on merging it here tbf. Looks like an interesting build though, although I don't know if the H100 or the NH-D14 fits in the 550D.
EDIT: Post I replied to has been deleted. :<
I had to remove the armor and I also had to break off 3 teeth of one of the mainboard coolers in order to be able to mount the CPU cooler.
On the right side of the image you can see the 3 broken (removed) teeth of the cooler:
On this image you can see the position where the outer heatpipe collides with the mainboard cooler (and the thermal armor, if not removed):
So yeah, this is just a warning to those who intend to buy the ASUS Z77 Sabertooth... check first if it works with the CPU cooler you want to use. I didn't even want to buy this, but my old PC died so I had to act fast... and the ASUS high end boards for the Z77 aren't available yet, some of them aren't even announced. So the Sabertooth Z77 was the best I could get at the moment.

Well here it finally is, got my last extension cables in today and finished everything
ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
Intel i5 3570k @ 4.5 GHz
MSI Twin Frozr II 560ti ( soon to be replaced by a 670 )
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Corsair H100 with 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1450RPM
Corsair 500R case
Replaced all fans with Scythe fans ( except for the exhaust fan, that one works fine ) and hooked them up to a Scythe Kaze Master II.
Had no other way to these two power cables unfortunately:
Fits like this:
Off the top of my head, fairly few of Corsair's smaller cases actually allow mounting the H100 even. The 300R and 400R don't, if I recall correct, but the 500R does. Sadly, I can't recall what the 550D is based off of.
The Corsair Vengeance C70, if I don't recall wrong, aims to be able to fit two 240mm radiators.
To be fair - Sabertooth is one of Asus' higher end boards/lines, imho. Also, looks great Rickz!!

It is not the count of your posts, but the quality of your posts that matter... luckily, I have both. ^_<
