Canceled the order on the NZXT Switch 810... I just can't do it. I really dislike High Gloss plastic finishes. I'm going to order the Corsair 800D later today. So much for will power and budgets. I'll probably put off the water cooling for a couple weeks to recoup the extra expense.

I forgot I actually have a $400 bonus coming in for this quarter, so I'm definitely ordering the 800D. I'm going to be using this case for the foreseeable future, so it has to be right. lol

Going to order a Corsair H100 from BestBuy. I got a $50 gift card and they're selling it for $103, so only $53 out of pocket. It'll hold me over till I have the urge to build a custom water cooling loop.

Looks like a solid rig. Let us know how you like the 3570k. I'm still on the fence about upgrading.

IMO a 2500K owner should not be grabbing an ivy bridge chip. The difference is not worth the extra $$$. It would be better putting that money towards a GPU upgrade.

Typing this on the new machine. Just waiting for the 680 to get here (eta: 5/7/12). The SSD took a while to install... apparently the hot swap bay's sata pcb is faulty. I'll get into that more tomorrow, omw out for cinco de mayo, or however you spell it.

Honestly, I wouldn't bother on gettinga crazy case. Just get something that fits. With what you save, you could grab 2 7870s insteaad of a single 680.
