I like the case and I love Samsung SSD's. My MDPC-x sleeving will be green, black and charcoal grey. You'll love the mobo! sub'd

Im actually worried about sleeving the Seasonic since they have alot of double wires. That is really my main concern at this point. The reason I went with the Platinum 1000 was mainly due to all the great reviews it got. I know its overkill for one 680, but I might be adding another in the future. The AX850 was on my list also, but was unsure if I would be right at the limit with dual 680s. I know I read somewhere nvida recommends at least a 750watt for sli 680s. I think the 850 would be easier to sleeve. What you guys think.

The silverstone striders are great psu's and sleeve easily. I'd recommend the gold 850w model
