Midget Ninja Mini-ITX Silent Water Cooled Build - Page 7

Yeah I ran across that review, but I didn't give it much of a read beyond an initial scan, because the BIOS is only temporary and in fact, may even be changed out before it even gets put on my doorstep, so I'm not worried about it. This board is also made with very good components, so I feel as though I can rest assured that at some point it will be tinkered with just right to handle those really high OCs. Plus at 4.6GHz on the 2500K vs 4.25GHz on my Q9650; haha... I didn't really catch that bit of info as a con in the review. Anyways, rep+ for the link. Thanks.

Hahaha,

Thanks man. The 4.6Ghz wasn't stable in benchmarks/gaming though. I really hope they deal with the minor software issues because the hardware is as close to perfect as were gonna get in a mITX form factor! Good luck with your build, looks great so far.

I had 8gb on my last system and then RMA'ed half of it after just 3 weeks. haha
The reason I'm interested in this board and the ram is because I'm an Architecture student and I'm wanting to make a machine to handle the programs/renderings that will arrise in the next couple of years. I know I can go with a larger board but I'm needing a small form factor for other reasons. I assume 8 gb will have to do. Thanks for your reply and good luck with the build.

You might just want to consider mATX and just get a slim or smaller mATX case.

Many mATX cases that are slim/low profile have VESA mounting, so they could be put on the back of a Monitor without an issue and won't hardly take up any space.

That would at least give you the option for 4 DIMM's for RAM, so memory wouldn't be an issue.

For CAD and other 3D Modeling applications, you'll want more than 8GB of RAM to work with.

I certainly don't want to hijack your thread so let me know if you would rather me start a new thread about this.

I was planning on making a computer that would be used at my house when I'm not at school using their computers. So my idea was that I didn't need something over the top that would require such extensive hardware, just something to continue my work during the night between days. I agree 16GB would be nicer but from what I am reading, I'm still on the fence about side to take, 8GB or 16. I'm new to SOME of the 3d software and always assumed more is better, but figure at some point I need to be more realistic about the build.

I wanted something that was small enough for transport should I need to take it to school, hence m-Itx form factor. As far as the case is concerned, I was planning on doing a custom case to meet my requirements. I had high expectations of the z68 with gt 430, keeping the dimensions as small as possible (height-wise in this case.)

I suppose my real question is why there isn't a focus on producing individually greater capacity ram chips (ie. 1 X 8GB). Wait a minute, I just did a search on server ram which resulted in 2 X 8GB sets, can server ram be installed in desktop boards? Expensive yes, but if so, that might give me what I want.

Duh! I was actually surprised at Tator Tot for posting an answer to your question off topic in my thread like that already, but no worries man. Haha

Apparently you're both new around here. High end or specialty system Mod/Build Logs always go off topic

Well I have to hope that this one month delay in release is all about solving exactly these types of issues. It's one thing to be a 1st to release a product type, but to print "Super Overclock" directly on the PCB... I'm sure they're working on a BIOS. As far as I can tell, the hardware is solid. I'm not beyond buying a better MB and swapping out the Zotac if there are better options available in the near future. Especially after being ignored by Zotac after writing them multiple sincerely and professionally written emails. I wasn't impressed with that at all.

You're looking for reveiws weren't you? I think this is the board you're looking at.
