mATX reccomendations and SB integrated graphics - Page 2

post #11 of 23
go with this case for LAN, you can easily fit a proper GPU, and it'll be easy to carry anywhere and sturdy.

I was always under the impression ITX was Intel Atom-like components. I guess I'm looking for an ITX build then.

tongue.gif not always, some ITX rigs can perform just as well as its atx counterpart (although overclocks might be a bit lower).

Some of the best itx boards out on the market are the 1155 z68's by asrock (parent company is asus) and zotac

Currently im using the zotac board with a 2500k (soon to move to an ivy bridge cpu) and waiting on a nvidia 690/790 card, but with these sort of boards you can put any single gpu you can fit in the case (assuming you have enough wattage)

Some cases like the LIAN LI PC-Q11B will allow you to put a regular psu into the case so you can put in higher end cards if you like

The SG07/08 has a PSU that can handle every graphics card on the market (Including the dual GPU cards).

While it says 600 Watt on the psu, it is a rebranded 750 watt and there are reviews pushing 721 watts on it without it breaking a sweat. It is a VERY good psu. thumb.gif

nah ITX (much like mATX) has come a LOOOOONG way recently smile.gifhere is the reference build i usually send people to when they are considering a ITX gamer box. the parts used in that build are older, fortunately intel based boards have not changed in their layout since that build so you can get a z68 board of the exact same layout (i recommend the asrock Z68M-ITX/HT) and everything will fit exactly as he had in his build. of course you'd also put a 7970 in there instead of what he had so it's essentially a true gamer box w/o the gamer size.

the ONLY thing you CAN'T do in an ITX build is overclock biggrin.gif well not very far anyway. it's a limitation of the form factor that they aren't able to squeeze high quality VRM onto a board that small so you'd pretty much have to deal with VERY minor OC of between 3.7 to 4ghz. almost not worth the effort so i'd recommend you just let speedstep do its job and turn a blind eye to OCing ;p

here is an example of how portable the system can be with THAT much power inside the box

Well i wouldnt say you cant overclock an itx, i was able to OC to 4.2 my first attempt with no voltage adjustments, After some tweeking i got my 2500k to 4.6 with a h50 (1 fan) and stock vrm heatsinks, Currently working on getting it to 4.8-5ghz with some water cooling on the cpu and vrm. i would say that you might not necessarily get as high as with a high end board though, but its possible that you can get a pretty decent overclock on it. biggrin.gif

but yeah itx has come a long way since way back when, kinda interested to see where it goes in the future tongue.gif

side: heres a pic of the OC on my zotac board, sorry its a bit big frown.gif

well, you were lucky to get a good board and a good chip biggrin.gif generally speaking tho, ITX boards royally suk at OCing due to no VRM cooling and sub par VRM components biggrin.gif

Why pair up an SB Pentium with a 6670?

Is LoL more of a cpu intensive game or a gpu intensive game?
