Well unfortunately this funding was used for my computer vs the M1a or AR i wanted to build but this will be more useful for my school through Chico's engineering program. Just curious if there's any other tech geeks like myself that would be interested in it :D

I just built a new pc using that case. It is friggin huge! Be aware that you may have to disable the auto fan speed control for the case fans. Mine run so slow that the are always in alarm due to being under the minimum fan speed per bios. It is a very quiet case considering the number and size of fans. All total, my pc has 8 fans in it.

You should add a nice monitor onto that, you also would have done better with an nVidia GTX 400 series card for little less.
