Everything's here but the case. Bench build: 1 hour.

Don't forget to put the little metal thingy in the case where all the motherboard jacks go BEFORE you screw down the motherboard.

I build systems so infrequently that I've forgotten to do that TWICE, which means you have to take it all apart again if you want it in place keeping dust out.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I do not know what you mean? Or do you mean the cutout plate for the USB/Audio/etc jacks?

The new mobo I bought for my wife's build, actually has that BUILT IN to the mobo. Who knew?

Yes that little cutout. Customized for each mobo jacks layout. Snaps into case (from the inside) where the USB ports and stuff go. Got to put it in before the mobo. Protip.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.
