Oddly enough, I received the best pricing at staples for pc parts. Almost all the components came from staples and these are prices with CA tax included. I had a spare windows 7 key from my last build that I didn't use.
Stahp making me jealous I really really want that case now...
i debated for a month before i pulled the trigger. it's a great looking case but it does come at a premium, and the gloss front is a print magnet.
I can't see the inside very well but the cables look aweful, given it'sa mini itx case.
being extra small and tight there really isn't much room for cable management. The back area behind the mobo is too narrow to fit anything, and the cables are very short, they reach exactly where they need to plug in. So you would probably need extensions for proper cable management. That or get a decent size cpu cooler to hide everything.
I love that case. With that said, I'm disappointed that EVGA didn't do a better job at sleeving the cables or making them all black. Takes away from the case.
Nice build though.
yeah, evga did do a pretty terrible sleeving job. to be honest, there really shouldn't be a window on this thing. there's no room for cable management and the multicolor psu cables make it very unattractive. i'm probably going to redo the sleeves later on when i have more time.
how is the g skill ares are they good for overcloack
fairly easy to overclock and it comes with a limited lifetime warranty. i have it set to 1866 10cas. ugly as hell. aqua blue, who thought that was a good idea? i got a great price on it, but looking back, i wish i had spent a little more money on less ugly ram.
