Same price with instant rebate rather than mail in. Plus it's Seasonic.

Personal Opinion: The case is a bit overpriced, says I. I really can't justify over $150 on a case even for a decently premium build. I would find something more in the 130 neighborhood. But, many people buy cases for the look and don't care about the price. It's all your call, obviously, but that case just seems a little too $$$ for me. Otherwise, great build!

No return policy? If it's not too much trouble, that's what I would do.

Also, if you have a Micro Center near by, get the 2500k there. It's cheaper: http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0354589

the 650D is a nice case if you want to shell out that much. Personally, the best bang for the buck is the Shinobi Window: http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/pr...hassis/shinobi

I got two of them and became a fanboy
