Pros: Was the smoothest computer building experience I ever had!
Absolutely no problems. I just stuck all the parts together, turned it on and now I am in business.
Loaded it with:
2 Xeon e5-2680 v2 (10 core @ 2.80ghz)
32 GB of g.skill (See other thoughts below)
Samsung 250 GB SSD
1 EVGA GTX 780 Ti
Corsair Obsidian 750D Black ATX Full Tower
Cooler Master V1000 - 1000W Power Supply
2 x Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler
My cinebench score for this build is 2643 and cost roughly $5,500
(The fastest 12core mac pro cb score is only 1370 and costs just under $10,000) ouch!
Cons: Not even one. No BSODs, or Issues whatsoever. Everything worked and quite frankly It was the smoothest computer building experience anyone could ever hope for.
Other Thoughts: Use this Memory for this board:
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBZL

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Big, Lots of Room, Good Airflow out of the box, Perfect price for high performance useage.
Cons: The 2 USB ports and Audio/Mic Location is badly placed, being too close to the DVD Drive. When the tray on my DVD opens it runs into a load of sagging USB Cables and headphones/Mic wires. Sorta lame.
Other Thoughts: Id recommend installing the DVD drive to the Lowest Bay.READ FULL REVIEW
