The Antec DF Series are nice, i own the DF-30 and i pretty love it.
It has the very awesome "Fleet Release doors" and nice 2.5" Drive hot-swap bay.
Those Series have some fail points, the optical drive lulz like mentioned in the video and also the DF-30/35 lack the cable managment holes which making me upset.

Anyway, the DF-85 is amazing case, imo its loosk ugly at photos but in real life when you really have it, you realize how awesome it is.
For more philosophy, once you have a DF case (especially the DF-85) it will be hard for you to switch to another case, since the unique features that look like a gimmicks are actually very handy.

Just so you know, G.Skill Sniper RAM doesn't OC very well, which is not a problem for Sandy Bridge since you probably won't be doing any FSB/BClock adjustments. Don't expect to run them any higher 1600 mhz.


EDIT: the combo is back in stock, and still with -$40 and 25% off..

Thread Starter 
Well, with the combos I got last night, it came to $1466. With the original combos, it came to $1497. I suppose if I took the nVidia case off it would just be a $10 difference, but I want that case. So it would have been an extra $31 dollars for that ram.

They already charged me and I can't change the order, only cancel it. I'm fine with what I got. Like I said, I would prefer ram with low heat spreaders despite the clearance I will surely have.

I can always upgrade in the future should I run into a snag. But I'll probably wait until I upgrade MB/CPU for that.
