Just in case anyone else is thinking of doing a similar build, that is a Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 board in an Origen S14V case, be aware there is a clearence issue between the HD cage and SATA ports.
Gigabtye has the six SATA ports facing outward (instead of upward) which created an interference issue with the hard drive cage on the Origen.

It is not that big of an issue for me since I don't need six SATA ports, but it could be an issue for someone else. I don't know if this problem is specific to the Origen case. I guess it dends on hown much clearence this is between the case/contents and the front edge of the MB.

Just be clear, I can use four of the six ports.
