(I couldn't call it the Phantom... that would be even less original).
After many trials and tribulations in building this (primarily with the SSD, more on that later)... it's done! I'd been looking at building this all summer, and bit the bullet a few weeks ago to buy everything. It was the first build I'd done myself, so I was super cautious with putting everything together, but it went smoothly - plenty of space inside the case (although as I'd read elsewhere, the rubber grommets were loose - if you're careful to keep them in place as you thread cables it's fine, and they're possible to put back on if they come totally off), and it's basically silent: the 3-position fan speed switch was a nice touch, and the GAIA is big, beautiful, and silent as well.
Regarding my SSD issues: after getting absolutely no help from ASRock as to why I was getting 1.5 MB/s transfer speeds at 100% drive activity (when I knew the ports, cables, and drive were all fine), I finally got help from a customer service rep at Samsung. The Intel RST driver on ASRock's site was 12.6, a version that was so bad Intel totally delisted it. After updating to the latest version from Intel's site, 12.8, I had absolutely no problems. Moral of the story: don't trust ASRock for drivers. (I think that driver problem applies to any H87 board, and maybe Zs - not sure).
Haven't had time to put it through any stress tests yet, but so far, I'm very happy with it - my previous comp was a T500 from 2009. AMD Mobility Radeon 3950 (3XXX something for sure) with 256MB of GPU RAM, so this is a massive upgrade. I GET CLOUDS IN CIV 5, NOT GREY HEXAGONS!!!
