I built this from parts I had on hand. All parts are new, not used. My goal is to sell it on Craigslist to get money for medical bills.
Of the parts I had in the closet, these seemed like the best build I could do. I have a Corsair H60, LED fans, WIN 7 & WIN 8 COA to offer buyer if they want.
I would really appreciate your input as to how I should price it for sale, and any other comments you care to provide. I know I'll loose money on it, but bills to pay, so . . . . .

The case is better than I thought it would be as I had not used Raidmax before. The build went together well with easy wire management. The fit & finish inside and out are very good for this price point. (Similar to Antec illusion, Corsair 100R) I had to turn the 3.5" around 180 deg. to make use of the plastic rails they provided for the HDD, otherwise the HDD stuck out beyond the case edge. Maybe it was installed backwards?, but more likely just me, ha-ha. No dust management on the front where I added a fan from my Coolermaster HAF XB that I never used. The LED light in the "V" in front looks ok to me, not too bright and goes with the style of the panel. Friends who saw it when built thought it looks good over all, and like the blue led and "integrated" on/off and reset switches. The front panel and side doors are easy to work with. Oops; only one USB 3.0 in front.
Bottom filter for PSU and a 120mm rear fan are included. The fan is nothing special, but quiet.
The stock cpu heatsink/fan is aluminum core only, no copper plug. I replaced it with the one came with my i7-3770k and dropped temps with slower fan speeds. Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool test was 54 deg. below max @ idle; 39 deg. below max at 100% use.
When buttoned up, this case is sturdy and stable, but I will to something about the plastic feet that slide across the desktop.
