Nice system I think. The WEI will likely go to 7.9 on the SSD after several hours of running, mine started low too.
The case has some nice cable management but I though you'd get the Thor V2 case.

I got this Newegg.com - Rosewill Smart One ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Black interior, comes with three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, Option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan case for my wife's build. Rosewill has some decent low priced parts.

AHCI was off in BIOS. I turned it on so that should make a difference too. I have not had time to do much to it so I can't post anything else yet....

I was originally wanting the Thor V2, but it was really big, a little bit more money, and doesn't have a side window. It also has a huge fan on the side which looked a little overkill... Newegg.com - Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case, support up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, come with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan

Will probably get Thor V3 when it comes out

I wanted the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D, but that's way too much money to spend on a case. Maybe if I have some spare cash to blow in the future. That case would last me for a while and it looks amazing.

I have this Newegg.com - IN WIN Dragon Rider Black 1.0 - 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case (thanks to essenbe) and I didn't like the big side grille and 240MM fan. So I modded it a little.

Looks good so far. Is that a hard drive hot swap at the top of the case?
