Hello,
I'm having a lot of trouble trying to find a good case (in regards to cooling, noise reduction, excellent dust filtering and pure awesomeness) for the GA-X58A series motherboard. Could someone provide feedback on some good cases please? Many thanks

pc cases, motherboards, and devices with USB 3.0 ports are very very rare. Lian Li will introduce a pc case with USB 3.0 ports on March 26th:

Asus just came out with a motherboard that supports USB 3.0:

It will be a while before USB 3.0 ports and devices become common. Here is a link to an excellent two page article about the transition from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0:

I just finished a build with the Antec 900 and GAX58A-UD7 although it works it got very cramped very quickly. The drives stuckout from the HDD cage into the case which caused me to have to rearrange the setup due to the PSU connector on the header being in the way. My next build will surly include the Antec 1200 worth the extra $$...

Hi, I would HIGHLY recommend the corsair obsidian 800d. Excellent all around, plus has a little bling (window). Not a very glitzy gamers type, but huge, cool and works well with my x58a-ud5 board. Best cable management I have seen! Hot swap bays, etc, etc. Wish I had the money to buy extras for other existing machines! No dissapointments here. Oh, almost forgot to mention only complaint. I have the corsair hx-1000 psu and the cable barely reached. Huge case though so not psu's fault. Youtube is a great place to see builds with it. Good luck.
