Performance wise the only thing I want is a full sized motherboard but the new intel series is not where I forsaw it and im thinking I will just wait a while longer to upgrade. I know the 2500K is still the best performance to price but $500 ("NICE" motherboard +cpu) for a small gain doesn't seem worth it. The reason I want a "NICE" motherboard is because I plan to SLI 670's (suprisingly before the upgrade I had Hawk 5770 CF in this micro board) and I have a Creative titanium sound card arriving on Monday. So I am loooking at 3.0 @16 in SLI plus extra 2.0 pci slots so I can future proof a little.

I really like my Sabertooth X79 and 3820 combo. Overclocks like a champ, and has MORE than enough PCI-E bandwidth for my needs. It was probably around $600-650cdn with 16gb 2133 RAM (I'm too lazy to dig out the receipts).

Looks good. I love the lines you've come up with there, and the side circles look awesome.

Magic.

Is there much of gain to putting a fan there? If so what is the best way to put the fan intake or outake? My Phantom stands on a custom wheeled stand I made for it, if there is a decent gain to having a fan in that spot I will use a hole saw and put a hold under it on the stand!

Sorry if this is a noob question, but is it possible to mount a 120/80mm under where the removable drive cage is?

Yes. A 120mm will line up nicely. You will have to drill 2 holes in the bottom as only 2 of the removable drive cage hole will line up.

450

As you can see above, I mounted my 120mm radiator between to 120mm fans in that spot. Like I said, just have to drill the 2 holes. (P.S. ignore the spaghetti, I cleared up the cable management since this pic.)
