you can chose any case, I selected a flashy one that has good cooling. my normal build case is the NZXT Source 210, but its not flashy.

I you aren't going to OC you could save some money ($92) or upgrade the GPU to HD 7870 buy going with this CPU/MB and dropping the Hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler to use the stock intel one
