Hi guys , I was wondering where you all get buy your boards from ? I'm planning to buy a Maximus V Formula in the US which is cheaper ( through relative ) than in our country ( Philippines )

Most people here in the US either order from Newegg, NCIX US, Tigerdirect or Amazon. When you're in the states I'm sure you can go to a local Frys or Mircrocenter and buy one off the shelves for a decent price also.

You are more than likely to get a great deal if you go to a Microcenter. They usually have those really good Ivy Bridge deals so you can shave off $50 more on any board you pair it with.

I'm using sleeved extensions, so I made all the wires very short (about 6-8" long).

For anyone who hasn't seen my rig, here's a shot of the inside. I have all the room at the bottom because when I have the funds I'll be adding a full loop with dual 480mm radiators side by side (with will need a few more mods but that's okay biggrin.gif). Also I cut out the bottom 5.25" bay, relocated the PSU, and countersunk and fit a 200mm fan in the front.

I would do that if I wasn't going to give my PSU to a friend. I hate the length.

Click the photo and zoom it thumb.gif. It's highly appreciable.

Which of them has the cheapest or have the best RMA Policy/ Warranty whatsoever or in short - Customer Service ? Thanks again =)

From what I heard,Amazon has great rma smile.gif

NCIX has the worst rma service. They make you pay return shipping. Imagine returning a defecting case. Happened to me and I had to pay 60 dollar shipping. No refund.

TigerDirect has bad customer service too. Awful.

Newegg is pretty good with RMA. Amazon is on the same level as Newegg.
