A special order though.

Which means that their distributor has them but they aren't in NCIX's warehouses yet. I wonder why they're so damn slow...

@ Ovlazek

From the Mobo bottom to the top of the waterblock = 5.5 inches
From the PCIE connector to the top of the waterblock = ~ 5 - 5 1/16 inches

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask anything else and I will try my best to answer them for you.

Can anyone shed some lights about this subject? I'm stuck between the Asus P8Z68 or the Gene-Z. I'm leaning towards the gene-z but I don't know if I'll like mATX in my 600T.

Why should the physical size of the board affect whether or not you buy it. So long as it fits in your case (ie: not too big; has the correct mounting holes) and has all the features you need, size should not be a factor.

It's not how deep you fish, it's how you wiggle your worm, after all. Size hardly matters.

EDIT: Full disclosure: This is coming from somebody who runs with a P180, which is by no means a mATX case.

In both instances I would go with full atx. Unless one wanted to put full watercooling in with all the extra space.

I know you all like reviews...

Haven't read it yet, just found it and I came here to post it first.
post #367 of 7107
I do like reviews!! Thanks!

A review posted on the 4th of July is proof that a true American Patriot buys Gene-z's. I think that should settle any and all "Should I buy it?" conversations.

Thanks for the review. I've been waiting for more write ups about this board. I've wanted it since I first laid eyes on it, but the form factor and overclocking abilities were the only things that have been holding me back.

Lets see what this review states about the OC

Edit: I love the review on it!, I may just pick this board up!

You're welcome, thanks for the +1 Rep.

oops, I'm repeating myself... I'll stop. I don't even know what it gives anyway. Do you?

Now that I've read, they gave it almost a perfect score!

What I hope it that after getting this board with a 2500K, I hope I will be able to keep it for next updrade. I mean that I hope that I won't have to upgrade all over again keeping only the box and PS.

I had an E4300 that I upgraded to E8400 keeping all the other parts.
