Would block off the behind-DIMM SATA ports, would require low-profile RAM.
I'm going to sleep now. We'll see if this still sounds like a 'good idea' when I wake up.
Oh I'm sure they could do it.
But what do you think would it do to the market for their M-ATX boards?
IMAGINE A MINI-DTX/MINI-ITXWITHTWOPCIE WITH TWO WATERCOOLED 7990S-
THE 7990 DOESN'T HAVE ANY PORTS IN THE TOP SLOT HOLY CRAP
QUADFIRE ON ITX HOLY CRAP (THAT'S RIGHT I JUST INVALIDATED YOUR 6 FOOT TALL TOWER (NO, NOT REALLY))
SOMEONE CONTACT SOME MOTHERBOARD MANUFACTURER TO MAKE AN ITX WITH TWO PCIEX16 THIS HAS TO HAPPEN OMG
