I got one for sale... And it will be till Sat then ima keep it..

Notlike more then 3 gpus helps at all gaming scaleing is horrid after 3.... I just wanted it mostly for looks lol.

The Lepa is made by Enermax the reviewers say it is a very well built Unit by not quite as good as Enermaxes Top models.. but there is an 80$ price difference between the two.. Making the lepa a better buy..Another note is the Lepa only has 3 year warranty.

same as me! with the TEC cooler running full blast and full load temps will be nice and will be pulling 760 watts tongue.gif then a 1600 for the rig.... and if I bench another 1200-2400 depnds on what gpus and such if I ever try quad 580's (scary) redface.gif

BUT hopefully within the next 2 weeks I will be getting supplies of wood, stain, varnish, etc etc for the main build itself of the case. Then I will be doing many pictures and a fitting of the mobo mtray I ahve into it to make it look good tongue.gif

BTW what size is the RIVE? is it standard ATX? like the Z77 boards? rolleyes.gif

...Extended ATX...12 inch x 10.7 inch ( 30.5 cm x 27.2 cm ) - ...and every inch is worth it...more stable than the M V E which itself is very good
