Is the black cloth bag that comes with the case an anti-static one? I am about to go back home from school and wanted to my rig back in it's original box.

It is most definitely NOT an anti-static bag! In fact, it will CAUSE a ton of static putting it on and taking it off! Please don't put it back onto case if your system has been built in it.

Into the cardboard I have never had an issue with personally, even with styrofoam inserts (strangely might add), but that CLOTH bag shocked the crap out of me just taking the case out empty!!!

The bag that the case comes in does not have any anti-static properties. But you can use it to cover your case and then stick it back in the box. Whenever I move a full computer case I unplug it and then let the power drain out of the system for a couple minutes. I do the same thing when changing parts out on my computer as well even on a non carpeted surface. After you tape the box back up i usually make sure to tape of the handles just in case there is some sort of freak spill. This ensures nothing will make direct contact .

Nice build, it looks really clean.
I just don't know why you went all out to Liquid Cool an AMD proc.

Why spend all the money, then go cheap on the CPU?

Why not? Those FX8350s do pull their weight.

Actually sir, why is a more appropriate question, the only people I know who would buy an AMD processor were only looking at core count per dollar spent and were too cheap to buy the technologically and thermally superior Intel based processors only because they had a lower core count, even though they are much more efficient cores and consequently can actually multitask with ALL known software out as such.

I have yet to see someone buy an AMD because they think they are better, they only bought them because they were marginally less expensive than the Intel's.

The direct competitor to the FX-8350 is the i5-3570k/i5-4670k, and they are only 10-15% more cost as of today on newegg. And they are 50% more efficient on power and have cores that actually use resources properly.

I guess I just don't understand the mindset of AMD purchasers as the processors are today, sure, back in the "original" FX days I bought the AMD's because they were true competition to Intel and actually better for certain things. But that all changed at the Core Solo/Core Duo release and the performance gap across the boards between the companies products has gotten larger every year since. I don't want AMD to succeed in making a better product because I want to buy them again, I want them to succeed because it will require Intel to drop the prices on the superior processors I want to buy as of right now.

It's not just about core count per dollar spent, it's also about how refined and smoothly the cores do their workload. And that is what is still killing AMD processors that use the Bulldozer and more recent released cores as of now. They neutered all of their processors that they released with those cores due to the way they are sharing the system resources and need to redesign them.

Sweet setup. Really hoping to get my hands on this case.
Have to agree. Owned both an 8320 and a 3570k in the past year and the difference is negligible if total costs are a big concern.
