First off I love the bare assed tinkerbell with the guitar.. That is gonna make me dream in Technicolor.
The board is
MSI 790XT-G45 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition 2.5GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core overclocked to 2.8 for now.
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop
My thoughts on the case is it is bigger than the Scout for Graphics cards. A whole 290 mm from back to drive bays.
The case [LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case] is steel and ridgid but not as portable as the Scout.
It has a filter at the bottom, but the 140 fan in the front did not come with lights.. I had to use my old Scout fan for the front fan.
The top and a place for 2 140 mm Fans and the back 120 is strong.
The panel insides or the case was not painted of course and you know how great those Slot Card holders are. Everything in lian li is rubber coated for sound damping on the fans and the front and top are just Snap on quick and fast. the fit of everything is very well engineered but I prefer the Aluminum Lian Li. A Steel Lian Li just doesn't feel right. The LEDs will blind you and I bought a set of automotive LED strips at Advance Auto Parts for the interior lighting since I wanted to go low wattage. Probably pulling about 2 watts max. This case did not come with the Standard Standoff Tool that Lian Li usually provides.
Overall.. Cheap price.. but worth every penny.
But the K62 has too big of a window.. Too much exposure for me.
