Motherboard came with bent CPU pins but the mechanical pencil trick worked just fine.
CPU"s clocked at 4.0 GHz @ 1.14v. I could increase that if I wanted, but it's not stable at 4.5GHz with 1.25v and I'm not willing to push the voltage much higher than that. Might try to get a 4.4GHz overclock at some point.
The case is great for cable management and looks amazing, except for the front panel. The meshes aren't even and I'm working on a custom aluminum front panel. It comes with a Firewire port (useless) and a single USB 3.0 port that has a barely-long-enough passthrough cable to plug into the rear motherboard I/O. Corsair really needs to update the front I/O.
The IPS panel is awesome and I'm going to stick with IPS/PLS panels from now on. The color's just amazing.
I'm really picky about cable management so I'll end up moving the SSD back to the drive cage to clean up the back panel.
