I've used this for a desktop build. The included cooler must be used in most instances because of the size of the case and it is noisey as help. An after-market low profile cooler could be used but that defeats the deal price.
They're pretty responsive with the BIOS update too. I e-mailed them and had mine within a week. The IvyBridge fired right up after that. Haven't completed the build (still shuffling parts like drives and memory) but it looks like a nice solid box.
