Confused.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm in the process of upgrading my computer, with new M.B and CPU. My first choice was the Asus Rampage III Black edition, but found out that it's an eATX card, and my Antec 1200 doesn't support that.

So, then I checked the Rampage III Extreme, which is a ATX card. But here comes the confusing part, when I compare them it's the same size as the Black edition board.

So, now what board should I get, will the Black edition fit my Antec case? Or is the Extreme card mislabled and are in fact an eATX board?

And if none of the cards fit, what should I get in stead?

Help me shed some light on the subject!

Yeah, that's definitely weird. Must be a typo.

They're both E-ATX (12" x 10.6").

Thing is, though, you would probably be able to fit it inside the Antec 1200.

This is because ATX is 12" x 9.6". mATX is 9.6" x 9.6". So, it's only one inch wider than ATX, and seeing as how the 1200 has room for up to a 12" card, all you'd really be missing out on is maybe an HDD cage.

But just as a personal note.. why are you buying X58? It's last-gen.

I don't have any clue what the latest is so I gladly take any advice on what to get instead. But what I like about the Black Edition board is that it has integrated Bluetooth and WiFi.

But also since I have a lot of HDD's I can't really spare any of the drive cages, so a ATX board is a must I guess.

You should look at P67 boards. The Asus P8P67 Pro has Bluetooth built in and it works great. I can use my Wii remotes on the PC for Dolphin Wii emulator.

I'm getting myself one of those, especially since I can get the board + cpu not for roughly the price of the board!
