ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 4 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First build, booted up perfectly on powerup
I bought this a brick-and-mortar store and got $50 off with cpu purchase :D
Asus bios is awesome
Deluxe version may have been overkill, but so far I dont regret the extra.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Intel i5-2500k
Asus P8Z68-Deluxe/Gen3
Nvidia GTX 560ti 448core Classified

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First build went in very smoothly
Mine came perfect, with no chipped paint or scuffs
I was nervous about 200mm fans, but they are super quiet compared to 120's in my exp.
I love the way the front filter pops off
Window size strikes a good balance between showy and subdued

Cons: The right side cover is indeed difficult to close without a slight warp after cables have been routed behind the mobo, as others have posted. In the case's defence, my psu has very stiff cables, so that may be a contributing factor. After a lot of cable bending and smushing I was able to get it to a minimum.
I found the 5.25in bay locks to be cheapo.

Other Thoughts: I really liked the style and build quality of Lian-Li, but none had everything I wanted without upgrading an already expensive case with insanely expensive aftermarket parts.
(i.e. $90 for an optional side window + $120 for a top panel with fan mounts O.o)
This case has the looks and features, and almost the quality, for a much closer to reasonable price. (still expensive)
