The HAF XM "mid tower" case is bigger than my Inwin full tower. HAs no place for any 3.5" front accessories, like a card reader though.

They do make 3.5 to 5.25 adaptors. Plus, I believe you can buy the front covers from cooler Master

I did some cable management, and noticed an open cpu cable spot, now I have been getting a few black screens at start up with only the white dash blinking in the corner, So every time I have to switch back my oc settings to normal,and it will start fine, turns out the board needs 3x4pin cpu cables, I had the 8pin cable in, but never added the nother 4 pin, did that now,redone cables and now I can oc with ease. I feal kinda stupid for not thinking the board needed more power...

The board I'm getting is the same way. I've just been trying to figure where I am going to come with 2 8 pin cables. But, that's the least of my problems. I have figured pretty much what I want. I'm now trying to convince myself that I really need to spend the money.

Alsisgevat, That is a very nice re-do on the cables, hoses and all. Excellent call on the 2nd 8 pin power connector. Your rig is a monster and that's for sure !
