    My goals for a new PC for my Company were: Fast, Quiet, Reliable and Small.

    I wanted to air cool, so the case I picked is optimized for air cooling and silence.

    I'm starting the build today. LOVE, love, love this little case. It is sooo small, and well laid out.

    I'll post pics in the original post as the build progresses.

    It is tiny Juneau, which she will like.

    I agree it would be too small for my gaming PC, but perfect for her with only 1 HD and that being a SSD.

    This case is very, very cool.

    This will make for a very neat install, and she will love the look and size of the exterior.

    I've never had a case with a removable mother-board tray. I think all my future cases will need to have this feature, very nice, very helpful.

    I'll post pics when I finish it later today.

    A removable Motherboard tray has been a requirement for me for the last few builds.

    Almost completely finished it!

    Just burning it in with Prime95 and one more program to install. I'm setting a balance between quiet as possible and cool as possible at a given fan volume/speed.

    I'm tempted to try BF4 golden, but the video card is made for AutoCAD and high end workstation stuff, not games.

    On the other hand, what can it hurt?? I can uninstall the game later. -- How do I go about installing the Beta on that machine?? I guess I first load Origin?

    BTW the Samsung Magician software is simply amazing!! It took away all my worries about testing and optimizing a SSD, it did everything from over provisioning to optimizing the QS with the click of a button.

    Samsung Magician, it ships with the drive:

    The Samsung Magician software is designed to help users easily manage the health and performance of their Samsung SSD. In addition to providing vital SSD health status information, Magician will assist users in updating firmware, measuring performance, and optimizing the configuration of a Windows operating system installation. Samsung Magician software is developed and distributed exclusively for owners of Samsung Solid Sate Drives (SSDs).

    Yep. Samsung SSD's are great. My next SSD is torn between a 240gb'ish Samsung or Corsair. I love both brands and already own a 120gb Samsung 830 SSD. Drive works great and Samsung magician is fantastic.
