Interesting... I'll have to look through your build log. Seems cool though!

I finally got mine and I love it aside from the minor design flaws. One of the handle screw mounts is broken which seems common and my 160mm PSU won't fit all the way in without cutting holes in the cage for the cables. I have no idea why they didn't put cut outs there from the factory. Has anybody tried cutting slots in front of their PSU cage? It looks like it will be a pain without completely stripping the case.

Some PSU's are hard to fit in there, it seems, because of how cramped the space can be. I haven't tried to fit mine in yet, but I plan on making a cutout in the back of the PSU cage anyway, to help run wires underneath my optical cage, since I have my front panel flipped. I unfortunately have already drilled out the rivets for the cage, and can just take it out pretty easily. If you left everything stock though, it might be a little hard to do. As long as you take out the hard drive cages though, it shouldn't be too bad.

What else do you guys think I should get? I won't order the CPU until I know for sure that my motherboard is in fact coming. I hope to hear something soon on it though. :/

I'm using my old hard drive, hence the adapter, and my PSU since it's still good. I will also be getting an H80 for cooling. Any suggestions?

There are a couple of options. I am working on putting together an acrylic PSU bracket. Not easy work, mind you. One of 2 options are to either use M3 bolts and nuts as a stand off or even motherboard standoffs ) or use one of these and drill holes in your case to mount the screws properly

I'm considering getting a better GPU, but I wanna see how well the APU combo functions.
