First of all, many thanks to Andy and everyone here for the great tips that helped me build my own hacked Z800 based machine.

It's housed in a Nanoxia Deep Silence 5 and it's happily running 2 x x5680's with the 003 M/B.

Corsair H55 AIO liquid coolers fit perfectly without any mods.
I got 2 Corsair factory refurbished ones for £35 each (for the UK based people) and they are running fine.

The PSU is the COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO 1000W and I made my own memory and M/B cables by following Andy's and b1Ack's instructions (a few posts above) and did not connect the +5V pins on the 18pin cable. It's running fine with 48GB of RAM.

I'm running a Mojave osx based Hackintosh system with 2 x PCIe NVME drives and 9 x HDDs all working fine both on Intel and the SAS controller (plenty of drives in apple soft raid config as I'm using it as a music studio workstation).
Graphics is the Sapphire Pulse RX580 8GB and I also got a USB 3.0 PCIe card.

Again thanks all.
