Which cases are you talking about? I looked at the nofancomputer.com site and see a total of four cases listed.

CS-30 is unknown but I wouldn't be surprised if it is an off-the-shelf case with some customizations.

CS-60 is a rebadged In Win Dragon Slayer case.

CS-70 is a SilverStone Fortress FT03B case with different side perforations.

CS-80 is a rebadged In Win BUC case.

Does it?

Memory Performance: 16GB DDR3-1333 to DDR3-2400 on Ivy Bridge IGP with G.Skill

Their conclusion was that the best bang/buck is somewhere around 1600-1833MHz, with some performance bump to 2133MHz but at a high cost. 2400MHz could not be justified at all.

My, you do seem to have an eye for cases. I've seen the front of the c30 in pictures, The front panel is obviously off someone's shelf. Well there's another few bucks saved. It sounds like this can be done without too much cost.

You got to admit the Win does look like it was built for it though. Too bad the faceplate is so hideous. I'm starting to really like this thing. if only someone made a viable fanless gaming GPU
