Sorry but I wouldn`t trust that PSU as a door stop :no:
Protect your investment with a PSU that you can trust example http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139027

For PSUs you can trust and PSUs to avoid see http://www.10stripe....d/psu/brand.php and http://forum.pcmech....ide-inside.html

Could not see an internal on-board USB 3.0 header on the selected Mobo. If you need the USB 3.0 front socket on the case? you will need a pass through cable to run from the rear USB socket or use a Mobo that supports USB 3.0 front header.

These are the 2 closest, Price wise.
