Added some more pictures!

Should be done by Friday. I have my 2 hard drives my GPU and my optical coming Thursday from good ol Newegg. Should have every thing up and running for the most part on Saturday. Going to try and overclock but this mobo has so many features it may be easier to do it the old fashion way.

Sorry for the double post but I got a question. I want to put the Kaze fans on the back of the case but the drill holes don't fit the screws that came with the fan the holes are to small. I can't use the screws that came with the case because there to small for the fan and fan holder is to small. Do I have to drill bigger holes? Will add picture if needed.

I wanted to do tests on it and I got a huge deal on it like 80 something off on a combo deal with my mobo.

wow man, what a rig, way to do it right! You should update your sig rig.... cable management is ok, but looks tough in that case (and Im awful at CM as well)... Maybe hit up a hardware store and find the sticky bases you can pass a zip tie through to secure some of those loose wires... its what I did, in my case, you need like 2 extra feet of wire to route stuff neatly so I had to work with what I had! haha

Oh thanks man, right now I just want it up and running so I can play some games . I have plans in a few months to cut parts of the back of the mobo tray for cable managment, maybe paint the inside black and do some uv mod to the heatsinks on the mobo.
