The G3258 was on Amazon for $57 so I decided to try it. I have been wanting to learn a little more about overclocking and thought this was the perfect chip to learn on. I had bought the case for inventory when it was on sale for $30 (with rebate). I chose the MOBO based on the layout, z97 chip, color and price. In fact, I don't like the location of the USB 3 which I thougt was going to be great. The cable does not really clear the HD cage. The case was a royal pain the butt mostly due to the poor craftsmanship of the motherboard mounting holes and crappy standoff. Other than that its really not a bad case, though I would get a white LED strip to light up the inside. I could not get it to OC past 4.3 which was a little disappointing but again I am in the learning phase. Also I am not thrilled with the water cooling, seems like it should perform better. I was getting almost 80C on a stress test (@1.32V though). @2.85v I am maxing out at 72C. I took a chance on this power supply. I currently have a pc power and cooling unit in my main tower and it has been great. I got this under $55 for a 650 full modular. It scored 5266 physics test on skydiver (on board video) which I was happy with. I plan to either keep it for myself and resuse my ssd and 7850 or sell. If I sell it, I'll bump down the 3258 to 4.0 and recommend a 260x or 270x for video. Wanted to add that the OC Genie was not stable at all at the preset 4.3.
