Then had to wait for rma of power supply due to coil whine. THEN now i am getting driver crashes on it and zotac says its asus's fault, asus says it's zotacs fault and gskill says they have no idea wtf is going on... lol

Looks good though, much better cable management then i have done. I don't have a backplate to hide stuff behind too. Although it's no excuse my cable management was always embarrassing.
Boris, i pretty much priced matched everything I purchased from Memory Express. The case they were sticky on as i found out the 600T was low supplied or limited quantities at Direct Canada. The rule i guess with MemExpress was that they will not price match limited quantity stuff found on Canadian websites. It was only a $20 difference but *shrugs* they were nice about it.

That's why i never used to even consider them and would go to NCIX.

Now however it's a PITA to bother with ncix as locally i can drive over to memory express dalhousie since they are so close, bam it's done. Not to mention the prices are the same IF they carry the product.

It was like a fist fight with NCIX to get my RMA, even though i paid for express RMA. Then this mobo failure, or video card(unknown at this time) isn't covered because the first RMA took so freaking long. Makes me regret ever going to NCIX as it's been over a month, i've barely used my PC and both manufacturers claim innocence. sigh.

Yah I shop at the Dalhousie location as well. I buy things there when they have what I want, however that is rare and I usually shop NCIX anyway. Selection is 100x better.
