    Asrock Z97E-ITX/ac fits the nh-l12 for sure. I have one on an 4790K inside a Silverstone sg05-lite

    Thanks. It looks like I can get that one for cheaper on ebay as well. I'll have to get 2x8GB of ram as well, as I just remembered I'm running 4x4gb in my system currently. Looks like that'll be another ~$80. Still better than upgrading my entire system when I don't really need to.

    4790K is still a very worthy cpu and keeps up with the newest cpus' in games.

    Congrats! Have you been able to look it over for any defects?

    I actually have a spare VII Impact but I'm in the EU,
    if somebody happens to be interested

    I'm in college so I wasn't able to look over it personally. I had my mom look over it and there were no external defects. She only looked through the plastic though. So I won't know for sure until tomorrow.

    Wish I could afford a $250+ case in college.

    Even if you can pay for something doesn't mean you should. Especially in college.

    This is true as well. Understanding your financial position helps as well. :)

    Right now I did get a mail with trackingnumber finally. Direct shipment to Portugal. Hope that it passes customs without making a lot of troubles.
    6kg... maybe they forgot some tools in the box (hammer, pipe wrench, impactor or any other tool, they used to tinker the parts together)

    I'm also in Portugal no tracking number yet, are you sure is direct shipment ? I don't want to handle or pay customs.

    to get one good out of two?
    No no, bs. I will get the case with two hatpacks. ;)

    @zhnu
    I`m shure that it is direct shipment. And like you, I dont want to pay taxes twice. But somehow I don`t believe it passes customs like it should before I have seen it.

    If it comes direct shipment from China it won't pass customs, and the cost is very high 23% + administrative fees + redirect shipping price, that makes no sense we're in the EU

    Please don`t tell me how much the taxes are in Portugal. I do know.

    What I'm saying is complain to louqe it makes no sense you receive a direct shipment when you can receive it from postnord

    I don`t know what`s gonna happen. Clear is that I received a UPS tracking number adressed to my homedestination in Portugal.
    And now I`m worrying about paying even more to get what I allready payed for. Louqe allready charged 19 or 21% vat.

    But maybe they sorted it out with UPS. Got no clue.

    update:
    UPS Service: UPS Worldwide Expedited
    Homepage says: -Door-to-door service with in-house customs clearance included
    So it could be, that everything is cleared allready. hopefully

    update2:
    estimated deliveryday: 13.12.
    that`s 6 days! :thumb:
