Board and CPU arrived today gents so a pic of it all installed: The Akasa cooler is a smidge too tall, but you can still fit the bottom panel. A Silverstone NT07 would probably fit perfectly. The SATA power cable that comes with the board has the SATA power connectors facing the usual way so you can't really use a 2.5" drive with this case and board unless I can find a suitable cable or mod it. I've borrowed an mSATA drive from work just to test it and it flies along nicely and temps and noise from the Akasa cooler are very good. My idea of punching two holes in the IO shield for the WIFI antennas may work but its gonna be tight with the two large 3R3 chokes(?) at the back of the board. I will say that the BIOS is a bit basic on the ECS boards, no real control over the fans or anything and there doesn't seem to be a Windows key embedded in the UEFI (no real surprise there) but mine came with pretty much all the accessories I would expect from a new board rather than a bare OEM one.
