    I read an article showing Haswell can make use of faster RAM. But since this is an Ivy Bridge build, it's unrelated.

    My only concern is the mATX board in such a nice case, but that's it.

    The motherboard/case size ratio on your average build is always a depressing reminder that cable management blows.

    I'm using a MicroATX board in a normal-sized case, because it was cheaper and I don't need a bunch of expansion cards.
