    For this case, its a real PITA to put the faceplate on first, because the metal sticks out just enough to where I would have bend it all out of the way. This case is tight, so putting them in together is the method that works here.

    fat fingers *check. I assemble these smaller builds outside the case for 2 reasons. 1) I have more room to move around, and I can get my hands around the edges of the board if needed. 2) I actually test the board first, surprisingly you sometimes have bad motherboards, and it sucks to have one installed, spend the time working through the case to have to take it out.

    @soundman - Yea the advantage is that during this video we had a bad batch of zotac chips. They just didn't work. I think now they work fine, but at the time we needed the intel ones to get wifi working.

    Also like to mention that the little processor dock protector, make sure to keep it. If you do not and try to send the board to Zotac for repair, they will consider it a voiding of warranty.
