Guess the only good Z68 option would be the ATX version which is sooooooooooooo much more expensive :X
That's 5 slots... mATX is 4 how is that a fail? If you need more expansion slots it's simple, buy an ATX board. The board is not a fail at all.

Still waiting for my 560ti to come.

Anyone have any tips for cable management? My PSU is fully modular but there still seems to be so much clutter. This is my first time in so many years building my own computer.
In your case it's going to take a lot of time and effort, but It can be done. Sit down for as long as it takes and get it right when you get your 560 in.

well, I was also kind curious, the P8P67-M Pro PCIe slot layout was perfect, why change that?

I have a rampage II gene at the moment, I guess the slot placement on this motherboard doesn't work for my setup. I currently have the 3 slot cooler on the 2nd PCI-E slot with the Sound card and capture card on the 4x and top 16x all fits no problem.

Yeah. Every mobo should be perfect for everybody. They should make a modular one where you can put the expansion slots wherever you want.
All jokes aside, most people put mATX boards in mATX cases. The fact that you are putting a 4 slot board in a 7 slot case makes your current scenario work. But say I am putting the Gene in a case with only 4 expansion slots. If I use the 2nd x16 slot, I can't even put a single triple slot card in. Asus is just using a layout that will be beneficial to the most users. It's a shame that it won't work for you.

Hahahaha, I was just about to write almost the very same thing.

My bad though I assumed a mATX case, I was on tapaTalk.

Size wise it is no problem, only need 1155/1156 fittings not sure if those exist for it.

I don't know about the FT-02 but I can confirm in a PC-V354 case it won't fit.
