The case is absolutely one of the most enjoyables I've had, very slick, clean, perfectly built, and beautiful.
I had an argument with myself regarding the mobo, wanted to go with the Asus P8Z77-M PRO but decided on the gigabyte eventually, mostly due to reliability concerns, and I couldn't be happier
The MSI GTX660 Ti Power Edition OC is a beast, bf3 on ultra and it stays cool and quiet as hell! gives a nice blue glow from the amazing TWIN FROZER IV coolers.
Went for the Samsung 830 series instead of my first pick which was the corsair force 3, also due to reliability and stability concerns.
The arctic freezer i30 is amazing, it is literally silent, no noise levels at all! it has four copper heatpipes which make direct contact with the processor, it came with some nice arctic ice thermal paste, and it keeps my i5 3570k (stock atm) at ~22-29c (!), the fan is a very nice white silent fan, it is also modular, meaning you can replace the fan if you would like to, just clip off, replace and clip back on.
the kova+ is really nice, feels very solid, and very well built, LED's are a nice bling
The kaze master II controller is awesome, looks very sexy, can control 4 fans (or more if you plug 2+ fans to a single port), has an alarm feature to let you know if a certain fan had stopped spinning (it works.. first boot my cpu fan was'nt well connected to the controller connector, the thing beeped like crazy until I connected the fan) and if not connected in 15 seconds it will cut the power to the psu, great stuff!, can turn the fans all the way down (off) too.
I also made a little dvd\rw mod which I'm pretty proud of! I took the bay cover and cut it's upper angle, and glued it onto the dvd drive door using double sided tape, it looks as if it came this way from the factory
first boot attempt, works!

Needs some more minor work on the cable management but I'm very very pleased..Edited by omricn - 9/16/12 at 12:51am
