Since the main components are here, I'll just go ahead and post some pics. Components so far: H61N-USB3, i5-2500k, 2 x 4GB Samsung LP/LV DDR3 Missing: SSD, PicoPSU 120w (150w/160w just to be safe) To Do: Going to have to modify the case. Note that I reversed the orientation of the back I/O plate to opposite of how it's supposed to be (higher), in order to fit the cooler. Debating on cutting a hole for the CPU fan, or finding a Scythe Kozuti (and maybe drill in air vents) There are versions of the acrylic case that are bigger, but didn't like them - will have to figure out what to do. The case I got here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/C0AA-S1-1-P...1552?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item337f673210 Alternate Versions: http://www.ebay.com/itm/I0P15B-H1-1...5789?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item4ab8202aed Gonna dual boot Win7/OSX 10.8, heheh... ======================================== _______________________________________________________ ======================================== 4/15/13 update it's almost done! i got the parts for the AC power brick i wanted. also got the 2 x 120mm x 12mm height fans in the meantime, i changed to a z77 board and got a dual core ivy bridge instead. the tricky part is wiring it all together to the PicoPSU and hoping it doesn't fry everything i've done so far the top - the bottom - i/o ports - side angle - you can see the gap underneath the i/o ports there is a design decision that i could make - i'm still debating on whether i want that 120mm fan underneath the motherboard. should i just remove it completely and lower the motherboard?
