It's actually in the motherboard manual that ram slots 2 and 4 are to be filled if you only have 2 sticks of memory.

Unfortunately, the drive sits flush to the plate underneath the faceplate cover. I've had the same thought you did, but in order for that to work, the drive wouldn't be locked into the drive bay itself, or if it is locked, it wouldn't be flush with your newly augmented faceplate, good thoughts though, when I get the chance, I'll see if I can come up with something to make it more aesthetically pleasing. Apart from that though, phenomenal case, absolutely love it.

If I do delid, is there a 'standard' thermal compound to use? Or is anything better than what they put in there?

Thanks again for your suggestions and insights.

Thanks for the compliments, I was afraid of that, I have the want, but I don't know if I have the drive to delid the processor.

Wife does some photo editing, will possibly delve into video editing, and I, on occasion, do solid modeling, other than that, future proofing is all I have for the amount of ram chosen.

Thanks for the detailed reply. Will re-read through it when I get home from work and see if I can get some of the suggestions to pan out.

The pro was approximately $100 more than the standard version, which I couldn't justify. We wouldn't be able to tell a difference in our world. So far it's great! Thanks for the comment!

This chart shows that the gtx 275 is quite a few generations better than intel's 4000 series igpu.

I knew what kind of gaming I would be doing and I had this laying around, I want to make sure that I will need a new and improved video card before I spend the $250-$300.
