the only thing to be picky about is the case can be cramped and no side panel window.

You think it may be a bit small? And, I thought I wanted a side window... but it really isn't that big of a deal since the front panel will be glowing blue anyway from the LED fans. =)

Also the DFI mobo says:
"1333*/1066/800MHz
*Available only on CPUs that support 1333MHz FSB"

And the CPU:
"FSB 1333MHz"

So I assume that it will work fine.

Just wanted to ask cause I'm still fairly new to all this.

EDIT - Instead of bumping:
Thanks phil, needed to make sure the CPU and Mobo were all good.

yes. that means if you get a cpu that does 1066mhz then you cant overclock to 1333mhz. the board supports it,but the proc must also. and that small statement was my opinion. as well as the side panel window. the case will serve you well.
