The case frame assembly is customized. I added certain key pieces from different brands, like a motherboard support tray from Caselabs, and a slim I/O Pcie back panel from Danger Den and Puget Systems. I also modded the HDD hot swap cage by punching a series of exhaust holes at the back side panel and attaching a 120mm exhaust fan for HDD cooling.
Highest valid overclock is 4.1ghz and 3333 ram. But since I use air cooling, I downclock to 4.0 and 3200 ram for stress and benchmark testing. What's really great about this CPU is that if I downclock just a little bit to 3.8ghz, it only needs 1.22v.
