I have posted a link in the description that has the code and wiring diagram.

If you know enough about electronics (wiring, soldering, polarity), then its not too difficult. I can make a fritzing diagram and post the link to it if you would like. I tried to do a small step by step in the pictures. You can see where I started with the soldering of the led strips. The control board is just a piece of acrylic with holes cut out. I made that design in Illustrator and used a laser cutter to get the layers. I can post those files as well. Let me know if you need anything else.

Yes, all the connectors worked on my build. The system panel connector has an extra row of pins when comparing it to the Q-Connector that comes with the motherboard.

Well, I do plan to overclock, but not too far right now. Until I need to, I'll keep it at the 4.0 its set to. I'm able to play most major games without the fans spinning up on the profile I created. Never gets above 60 degrees even when running something like ffmpeg with h264 encoding.

Someone told me to clean up the wires a bit... So I did. New pictures posted

What would you suggest? I was looking at something from the Corsair Hydro series.

I feel the same way, but this was a somewhat cheap build. I'm going to replace the psu and when I do, it will be fully modular so I can fit cable mod cables. Right now there is almost no room to put them in and make it look clean. Thanks for the suggestion.

Most likely. However, it being a standard version and not the get it sc, I don't think I'm going to get very far.
