with the case, it always a personal choice, you have to like the look of it as well as have enough of what you want. if you liked the cm storm scout, try the storm sniper. i had that case for a while was awesome. you could even try the new storm trooper. i have never liked lian li cases but thats just me. with your motherboard, i have always used asus motherboards, and will always recommend them. my current favorite is my sabertooth p67 but i will be upgrading to the sabertooth z77 when ivy bridge comes outs near me. if i had to pick from the ones you listed i would take the asus rampage IV extreme, it look sexy. iv never had to use a sound card before, so i realy wouldnt know where to start with that. one last thing in regards to the case, with all this sexy hardware going in there you might want to think about a side window to show it all off, but thats just me.
