This was my first build. It all turned out well after a bit of work. Before I get ahead of myself, this rig is for gaming with a bit of Video encoding/rendering on the side. It smokes every other computer I have ever had. The build went smooth until one problem. With this case it is recommended that you try to cram your fans on the inside of your case along with the RAD. The ASUS motherboard has a 8-pin CPU power with an additional 4-pin for extra power. The 8 pin WIRE was bumping the fan in such a way that I had to grind a mount off of the fan to squeeze it together. I took my time and made it smooth as to not cut the wire with sharp plastic. Just know if you need a high airflow case that has room for this motherboard, this one is the top of my list. A 680 GFX card will be purchased soon so my monitors get separate cards.( i have an additional 32" monitor that I use to view chat and such.
