I needed a machine for video editing and running a flight simulator on. I do some console gaming and decided to see how well I could manage some of the newer titles that seem a bit underpowered with the console. I decided that I do not plan to mess with much overclocking and did not want a pump based cooling system. Knowing that I was planning on using the GTX 970, I opted for the Xeon E3 instead of the i7 since I did not need CPU integrated video and OC. The only problem I encountered was with the front panel header connections as they are a bunch of single pin connectors that plug into a small connector on the motherboard. Once I had those correct, everything booted up to my UFEI without a hitch. The case is huge and allows me plenty of room.
