Is a usb3.0 front panel case really worth it? I've been decently happy with my case so far, except the fans don't really push much more then they make noise...
That should be fairly simple to decide, do you use USB 3.0? If so do you use it enough that plugin it in the back is annoying? You can buy a USB 3.0 front panel adapter if you really think you need it.
(lets hope my thumbnailing worked )
edit wohoo figured it out -_-
Caught you halfway through editing, initially they were all just links :P great rig nonetheless. For some reason they're taking forever to load though, probably a combination of their huuuuuuge sizes and my slow internet.

I'd argue removing the bottom fan on that cooler, but eh.
Here's Calzaeth's rig. This is the rig I'm sorta techsupporting. We're done with that, we're just kinda fucking around waiting for something now.
Antec Kühler h20 620
G. Skill Trident 16GB kit running at 1600MHz
MSI Lightning GTX 680
OCZ Max Iops 120GB
Seasonic X-...dammit, I forgot.
What're we doing that's fucking around? Well, till my brother gets his replacement watercooling fittings the computer's staying (since Cal's borrowing a PC from me for the moment anyway). My brother wanted more drive space, and I suggested RAID. So here we go, 2x Corsair Force 3 240s. (Not sure if in RAID yet. Let my brother try and figure that out on his own.)

well airflow isn't a problem 200mm top fan + 140mm side one , don't forget it's a backplated gpu which kinda made it thighter .
however i do i think i'll have a big problem when i want to reach my other 2 ram slots :P
This is mostly a myth as far as case airflow is concerned, the natural convection currents that carry warm air up are so weak that fans pretty much have a 99% say in which way the air goes. Especially in a closed environment like a case.
