Much to my surprise I received all the parts a day early. So of course I started piecing everything together as soon as I could. I haven't loaded the OS yet, it was to late last night and had to get up early today so that will be the first thing I do when I get off work. I was happy with the way everything went for the most part. I had to install the PS upside down so my 4 pin would reach, but other than that, everything went together pretty smooth. I was able to boot into the bios on the first shot. I was sure something was going to go wrong as soon as I pressed the power button.
Update 9-14-13 I got Windows 8 Pro installed with no problems what so ever. For those of you who have never heard of a the site ninite.com, you defiantly need to check it out the next time you install a fresh system.
3DMark 11 benchmarks will be added soon!!!
