The entire EVGA Z68 line does not make sense to me. Other than adding the SSD caching, they offer no other benefits over the P67 line up they have. Quite honestly, the Z68 line up makes no sense except to say they have a Z68 line up.

At least some times the Asus servers work like they're supposed for a multimillion corporation.
Downloading AI Suite II from them, coming down at a nice 1,3megabytes per second
E: 1,5megabytes per second

Very quiet compared to my previous case!

Here is a pic of the build as it stands now. The power supply cables are basically woven into my tubing for the water cooling. I really don't like that. I want my GTX 570 back in my main rig and in order to take it apart I have to gently take my modular cables out of the psu and the gpu, (which happen to be right behind the res which is pretty delicate if you have been following my issues with it) feed them through my tubing without bumping anything too much as to not yank anything out of place.

Not to mention the fact that I can't put a standard 3.5" drive in, which would be pretty nice as right now I only have a 5400rpm 320GB laptop 2.5" drive in. I'd say I was just too enamoured with its looks that I didn't really think about it logically. Lack of proper planning on my part.

Hello Chums,

I went to plug in an (external) firewire soundcard and it does appear the gene is lacking a firewire port; lots of news sites mention it having firewire of a sort. I'm rather keen to avoid using the pcie*4 slot since I'm thinking of SLI in the future. Any ideas?

Just a though it could be the hdmi lead as the ealier ones were only capable of 1080. I am using a t260 which has a res of 1920x1200, maybe like you say your monitor might not support it through the hdmi (although i would assume that it does).

Wow that is a giant case for a mATX board. I'm not too familiar with the ST1200 psu, but I'm pretty sure there is nothing you could do to this board that would warrant a 1200w power supply. Just my two bits...

I dig your H2O cooling set-up (maybe a little jealous really) and I feel your pain with the case being so cramped and difficult to effectively manage the cables (the Antec 900 is no gem in this regard). As you point out, changing your drive (SSD?) would improve performance, so which to do first might be the real question. I'd vote for an SSD, but I don't know your budget situation, etc.
