Unless 6990 are magically single slot cards you can't put 2+a sound card.

1 3 slot VC + 1 PCI card
2 2 slot VC's + 0 PCI card
2 1 slot VC's + 1 PCI card

Those are you're only options.

For your H60 push/pull fan set-up, what fans did you use? How much difference do you notice in the noise-level? Did you change the airflow to exhaust? Thanks for your thoughts...

Looking at the first picture, I can't help but think of how spacious this mobo makes my P180 look. I never thought I'd be able to say that! =D

No need to be rude. He said 2 6990 LCS. Those ARE single slot cards. Before you get up in his face you should be respectful and confirm that he is talking crap.

While that is true, I really want to stay with a matx and the only board that would work without a riser/expansion cable is the gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 (or the inferior board GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3). However, both of these block all the USB headers. Most matx boards are limited in the expansion slot area and I knew that going in. Besides, finding a solution is one of the fun parts of building a new system!!

Yeah, I agree - there is no way I'm going to drop $45 for a cable - but if I was, they have a x4 for only $2 more!

I'm going to keep looking for a cable that might work that is more reasonably priced, but now I have a visual "go-by" as I look. Thanks again for your help, Ovlazek - you have really given me some important information that I can use to make an informed decision! YOU'RE THE BEST!

Didn't see the LCS part but if that wasn't even listed what I said wasn't even remotely rude. That was in no way getting up in a person face and 'dawging" them down.

In my last message I was saying I bought most parts except video card and I just realize that my CRT use an old 15-pins VGA cable so I won't be able to use the onboard video for a few weeks like I first wanted to do.

The review I just posted was saying it is actually cool when the update process... how was it? I never played with an uEFI BIOS before but I will soon.

In the pictures I am using a pair of Coolermaster R4's, but I have found them to be too loud. Instead I am now using a pair of Gelid Silent PWM's running at low speeds when temps are low and moderate speeds when temps start to rise.

It's working better so far.

At the moment I'm exhausting out of the case, but I will try intake at some point as well.
