Eww, the silverstone one doesnt come with a slim drive and it is $200..

I think I might go with the Lian Li q08 because I can use the H50 without modding and 3 hard drives (because thats how many sata ports the mobo has spare)

I have a very similar setup to you. I would recommend getting a 2500k or 2500 instead of the 2600k unless you need it. Only reason why I have a 2600k in my rig is because I wanted that extra 0.1Ghz smile.gif Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Btw, the RAM won't limit you since it's a H67.

Yes why wouldn't it? Other h67 mitx builds will only have the option to get better timing

Actually the intel h61 can get 1600, but it's stripped down pretty badly

So I decided that I am going to go for a little larger set up. The cooler master elite 360 case is perfect when laying flat, so I can just set my monitor on it.

cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115070

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138296

Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231425

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119195

Ill have to get a new gpu, but ill use the gtx 460 for a place holder since it fits perfect and isnt that bad.

There is a bottom 80mm fan spot below where the mobo goes. Ill mod that so I can fit the h50 rad and 2 120mm fans on it. should be pretty cool when its done biggrin.gif

and ill take off the CM logo and put: http://www.jinx.com/other_swag/stickers/video_games/pownstar.html?catid=18&cs=2&csd=18

All of that comes out to $700 even after tax and shipping
