I'm loving my X-Blade case, I found the build quality good and it has good support for running the cables behind the motherboard, my only hassle is the HDD mounting box is stuck and it won't come out so if I ever want to do up the front fan I can't.

Just cable tied the cables today and the results are nice. If I had a camera I'd photo it but I don't.

The built quality is alright, I guess. your right about the front fan, it's a ***** to get installed, so I haven't even bothered yet. I really like the way it looks though.

Hey look at this mobo. it's got agp 8x, what i need, and its got pci express in case i want to upgrade later. In the reviews everyone says it has really good and easy overclokcign features as well. The only thing i am weary of is the chipset. I hhave never had a mobo with a ULI chipset. Anybody know how good this chipset is, the ULI M1695?
aslos is ASRock a decent mobo company? So can someone please answer the question i have about this mobo. Thanx
