Great Motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-B85N Phoenix-WIFI LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The orange backlights sold me on this motherboard, being my favorite color, I built my entire computer trying to use orange colored parts. My mini ITX gaming rig looks great with this inside. It was easy to install and work with.

Cons: Wish had more fan header spots but that is expected being a mini ITX board and was able to work around that with a fan controller (also orange lights ofcourse)

Most Critical Review

Nice Panel, but starves GPU from air

BitFenix BFC-PRO-300-OOWA-RP BitFenix Prodigy Window Side Panel - Orange

Pros: Can see inside PC for that cool factor.

Cons: Wish they had pre-drilled some holes or some sweet design to help the GPU breath. I put this side panel on and after a few hours of gaming my PC would shut down. Suspected it is because of the panel not letting the GPU breath and it would eventually overhead. The panel would be pretty warm when this happens. I would put the supplied panel back on (the one with holes) and this issue never happens. Using some software, during gaming after few hours, the temperature difference was pretty significant when using this windowed panel and supplied panel. It could be my fan set up as well, but I haven't had issues with the other panel and my temperatures seem fine as-is. I guess you could drill holes in this windowed panel yourself if you want to.
