Since its an 1155 setup, I had to mod the backplate to make it work on my 775 board, and Arqtik slotted the mounting holes at my request so I can use it on 775 and 1155 by just swapping the backplate. Here are some (crappy) pics - resized smaller this time so they don't look as bad . Keep in mind everyone has different resolution monitors so what is too big or small for your screen may be fine for someone else. I have a 2560x1440 IPS so what is nice and manageable to me is a huge annoying pic to people on older low res 720p monitors or w/e.

This is the nifty controller that monitors Ambient, Humidity, Dew point, TEC Duty Cycle, Block Temp, and allows you to set the target block temp.
I was surprised by the thick high quality wires, sleeving, and neat heatshrink job on all cables. Everything was plug-and-play.
This is how I decided to tackle the mounting issue. I cut 2mm from the middle of each side of the backplate, then tack welded it back together using the block itself as a template to make sure it doesn't shift. A bit tedious since there is a lot of slow grinding/checking to make sure you don't cut too much at once and end up with a gap.

ASUS boards have tons of socket space, there was still 1/2" clearance on all sides before any tall components would have gotten in the way. The block is staggered to clear everything directly around the socket.
It is way more then enough for my Xeon(E8400) dual core. It is very humid down here(38%), and mixed with the high heat(28c ambient) makes the Dew point pretty high - 13c - but it can keep the block within 1* of that temp at only 36% duty cycle at idle, and full load barely breaks 50% DC. I expect higher DC and lower temps when it cools down and I can target a lower block temp, but for now that dropped my full load temp from 66c to 47c with all motherboard, pump, and fan settings identical! Lower Dew point and it can easily go lower then that, but if I keep the condensation prevention running keeps the block around 14c.
Water temp increased ~2c over plain watercooling, I can live with that!
