EDIT: I used the vice method if your looking for a tutorial this one is good it's what I did, it took one wack and mine just came apart. It goes on like water color paint basically, just be patient and don't use too much. http://imgur.com/a/Z3Fea

Yeah vice method definitely looks like the way to go, unfortunately I don't have a nice crisp bench vice like that just my little dremel vice, the rubber grips are an advantage though and a little flex might squeeze it off nicely, got a 1155 celeron or something rattling around that would make a good test subject, need to check if they soldered those though.  Still been too busy to have a crack, hopefully get a free afternoon soon, good opportunity to inspect the rest of the water gear while I'm fitting it.

The 200mm fans seem to make all the difference. (That and the case is built like a tank, so nothing to rattle)  


Good luck on your build. I'm in the market for some SSDs as well, so many choices! I'm currently looking at intel 730 , but haven't spent a lot of time yet comparing. 

My last setup was silent focused with much of the guts I run now, massive heatsink on the CPU, passive GPU and just ran 1 x 140mm noctua case fan.  It ran hot, but the lidded 3770K runs hot anyway, no room for OC or anything like that but could not be heard in an XL R2 define.  8 fans over rads now still runs quiet under sensible ambients with nice low temps at low loads, crank the load up though and I'm glad I always have the cans handy.
