Can that rear cover be disassembled so you can remove the plastic?
While a PCI-E bridge/switch can't increase bandwidth to or from the CPU, they can increase bandwidth between devices for uses that don't need to go through the CPU.
You can remove the back cover but you it's only one piece with a slit in the middle where the LED is. I'll just leave the shrink wrap on. Gives it a nice glossy sheen. thumb.gif

Do you think I should attempt to install the Rampage V in that Core P3 case? I was planning on ordering another RVE board since I'm in love with the looks or I could "settle" for the Gigabyte Designare EX which is an ATX board and should fit without issue.

The Rampage will be a very tight fit, and you'll almost certainly have to route some power and SATA cables where they are almost completely visible, but I'm quite certain it can be made to work, at least with regards to pure function. If that's an aesthetic issue for you, I'd avoid trying to use this board with the TT P3.

Still, I wouldn't let a relatively inexpenisve case dictate the hardware I used inside it either. Pick a board that suits your needs, then find a case that will hold everything you want it to the way you want it to.

Doesn't have the rear I/O quite like the RVE

RVE looks very pretty on the rear I/O...front

Problem is that I'm really only interested in the P3 or Phanteks Evolv TG and neither of them support something as wide as the RVE. The upcoming EVGA case looks nice but that's a month away.

can you let me know what are the PCIe devices that don't need to go through/control by CPU?

Some portion of GPU coherency (frame buffer compositing in particular) in multi-GPU setups is device to device. It's why there is no performance impact (clock for clock) on putting two GPUs on one PCB.

Things like drive controller cards and higher-end NICs can also talk directly to each other over a bridge without touching the CPU.

Very excited. Just ordered my CPU, and soon I'll be testing the motherboard and CPU out! Now, I just need to wait for the Samsung 960 Pro's to release, and the new Titan X. smile.gif

I made this board fit in my Evolv ATX case. At first it didn't fit. I removed the LED panel/thing on the back of the motherboard. Once I did that the board literally JUST fits. The edge of the mobo lays against the angled part of the case on the right edge. I put down electrical tape on the case there to prevent any possible shorting. It also partially obstructs the sata ports but figured I'd mention my hacky fix for this.

if they talk over a bridge, how does PLX play a role in increasing bandwidth like you said?

The PLX chip is the switch/bridge.
