I just got all the parts in for my ITX board. pretty much followed the posted build to the letter. I found the cast to be fine, actually I really like it. I think it just seems more flimsy than it actually is. I don't plan on having more then 2 hard drives and 1 ssd so the big hard drive cage was unnecessary and removed. My only issue with the case is there is NO way to put in a CD/DVD drive with the H80 you will need an external drive or a different cooler, the radiator is just too big and no drive is made to 155mm depth which is what you would need. The Asus motherboard has 1 small issues when installing a video card the front panel HD audio connector is almost completely crushed by the video card. Last and not really an issue was the Corsair PSU was DOA, only supplied 3V standby and would not switch on even when jumper-ed. The replacement should arrive soon.
