Hardware Mag has tested it with a 4770K and a Titan inside :D (almost as noisy as a Xbox360 fat)

also reported that a 5450 used for coolling efficiency test climbed to 68° quickly

waiting for more test :p

That is really pricey for a barebones gaming machine and from the looks of that board, ASrock is probably making a decent margin on it. Mostly just paying for that case is all.

That was my first thought back in teh days when announced this. But I highly doubt it. For some reason, they don't sell the case separately. May be someone on ebay will.
