I thought I would have had more issues but it was SOO much easier. The only problem I had was Cable Management. The Power Supply had those bulky wires that were everywhere. After I confirmed everything turned on, I unplugged all of the cables and attempted to redo them. I tied them as well as I could but the case sticks out just a bit. All in all, it was great. I want to build another, but this time, use $400....

Great Motherboard. I was going to get a Z170 but they said there would be BIOS update issues with the Kaby Lake cards. Great Mobo..

Nice build! Motherboard is a little overkill, could've probably saved a hundred bucks by getting a cheaper chipset since 7500 are locked cpus, but otherwise very nice!

Thanks!!! A friend said the same thing about the mobo.. He practically yelled at me. But I found the Mobo for 169 since I purchased it with a Kaby-Lake i5 Card at Microcenter...

I wish you included pictures with the side panel on, but otherwise, that is a sexy build. Loving the led fans
