Updated ride after many iterations:
Hope you like it.
Caad10 3 frameset sz 54
2010 Sram Force (used Wheels MFG adaptor for crank, swapped out chainring bolts for KCNC alloy, 52t and 34t chainrings)
KMC X10SL chain
Custom wheels (Velocity a23 rims on White Industries hubs and Sapim Race spokes, brass nipples)
SRAM PG-1070 11-26 cassette
3T ARX Pro -17 110mm stem
3T Ergonova Pro handlebars
Fizik Antares saddle
Cannondale c2 seatpost (surprisingly nice design, still debating if I'm going to replace it)
Arundel Cork bartape
Arundel Mandible cages
Shimano SPD-SL 105 pedals
In ride garb.
got fitted and cut the steer tube
Again, nice bike. Enjoy it.

Very nice, I'm hoping to do something similar.
How do you find the wheelset, and what size tyres are you running? I'm toying with rebuilding my fixed wheelset with the a23's.
@Greenduck and cl9k24la I'll probably cut it within the next couple days once I get my fit rechecked, but I think I only need some minor adjustments before it's ready.
@wojchiech I know what you mean haha, I was rushing to swap my tires and cassette on after work and really didn't pay attention to the tire labels. Eventually I'll get some carbon tubs, but it'll probably take me a little while.
@Hugo7 This was my first long ride on the wheels and I'm very happy. I'm running 23mm gp4000s and the ride feels very smooth and even better than on my old narrow rim wheels using 25's. They're not the lightest at 1600 grams but I'm extremely impressed with the way they handle and ride.
From an aesthetical point of view (if that really matters to you), I don't like the chainrings so I'd change those to black standard rings. A Low stack headset cap with a less angled stem would make it look better too.
Eventually I think I'll get the Stronglight chainrings and probably a Deda 82 degree stem, but for the headset cap I have to go through Cane Creek

Was looking at a CAAD 10 in my LBS the other day and must say that I was mighty impressed.
Nothing humble about it all, my friend.
Race the heck out of it!
