I noticed Bian@Asus & Raja@Asus replies to the PCI-e 3.0 question over on the ASUS ROG Forum and thought it was worth linking to it ...

http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showthread.php?3421-Do-the-Maximus-Gene-motherboards-support-PCI-Express-3.0

... long story short, Asus claims the standards and hardware aren't out for any of these boards to actually be honestly making these claims, and are more marketing driven, as those boards are NOT PCI-E 3.0 compliant out of the box either at this point, despite what's written on the box.

thinking.gif I'm not going to argue, and don't think we need to debate it here, and it's best left said let the END USER be the FINAL JUDGE of who's being honest here, in the meantime enjoy your MaxIVGeneZ. smile.gif

I just couldn't wait any longer to get my M4GZ a quality "home" and I couldn't find an option I liked better than the Arc Mini.

Well my HP case measures 387 mm H x 175 mm W x 414 mm L
... the SilverStone TJ08-E measures 374 mm H x 210 mm W x 385 mm L
... and the Fractal Arc Mini measures 405 mm H x 210 mm W x 484 mm L

So the TJ08-E might be a tad shorter and narrower, but it's Wider and thus would allow for 120mm fan in place of the 92mm fans I have now, and that would mean I COULD USE a Corsair Hydro Cooler and/or a taller CPU mounted cooler instead of my mini Noctua.

And the Arc Mini is taller/wider/and deeper ... so it would be HUGE by comparison tongue.gifbiggrin.gif

And as for cooling ... I'm not really sure yet ... I haven't OC'd my system, nor have I got my GPU upgrade in place, nor have I figured out how to properly run any HEAT and/or SPEED BENCHMARKS ... I'm new to this being a GEEK thing remember wink.gif

BUT, regardless I'm just thinking out loud for the future, I don't see changing my HP case anytime in the real near future, but adding a HTPC to my Home Stereo Rig was Kind of an Interesting Idea for another down the road build when I can afford it. smile.gif

I just recalled from an earlier exchange, that you were looking at the white version of Corsair 600T (I think that is the model). I didn't realize that your "sleeper HP" was smaller than these mid-towers though. Interesting points! Some might see me as "geeky", but I haven't been running benckmarks, etc. either, so it would be hard to say I qualify as a GEEK yet either!

Like you, I have been reading and learning about cooling and fan selection, mATX, etc. Since I once owned a Shuttle (back when they dominated the small form factor world) and SilentPC.com was the place for info and forum exchange around heat, cooling fans, etc. I am focused on airflow and the Arc Mini should work for my plan.

The TJ08E, with the upside down orientation is interesting, but too unconventional for me! I really liked the Corsair 600T, but the size is just too big.

The Arc Mini, may end up as my HTPC, since the machine is so powerful with the M4GZ, etc.

I'll be updating the list tonight. If anyone who hasn't posted a validation, go ahead and post it.

I been thinking, and may pass on the i7 2600k in favor for waiting for Ivy Bridge, and will get the 2500k instead. Hyperthreading is nice but I would rather go for a really really nice OC.

I think it really depends into what you do, personally my setup is mostly for games, browsing, email n such, no encoding/editing and no other activities that benefit a lot from hyperthreading, so i decided to save $100 and update the CPU once ivy bridge hit on march 2012.

Correct, this is my HTPC. Added my main machine to the sig and photos in the Silver Arrow thread under air cooling.
