so what do all these people do with lian li A05 mini cases? what mobos do they all use?
Well what sort of replacement/features are you looking for. You didnt miss what i posted did you? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131759

That would be if dual gpu gaming was a serious matter if not. MSI has some options if you trust them. So does ASUS. But your cut down to 3/4 slots depending on the gpu your using and less room on the board for features.

what a headache this has been lol.

at first i was set on the lian li A05 case. then i find out it doesn;t have top vents/fan slots, and not wanting to manually cut the case open to install them, i decided to go to another small, sleek case, the fractal define mini. then after deciding on the asus p8z68 pro (for blue look) or the gigabyte Z68X-UD4 (all black look), i find out those are regular ATX sized boards, and wont fit in the fractal define mini.

so then i look at asus p8z68 micro board, and alas, a lot of bad reviews on newegg.com. i don't like the look of the gigabyte micro mobos, so now i'm stuck.

are those micro-atx mobo's able to hold the heat and size of my gtx285? i know the fractal define mini has a top vent port which i'd def add a fan to, and i'd probably add another fan in the front but still..
