Here you can see the limited space I have...


You could let it sit elevated... The ribbon cable would cousin the bottom. Honestly though it's not good having those cards that close. It's a nice case but a bigger case or liquid cooling would be better for those cards...

Again, with all these different iterations of the Sniper board, I would highly suggest people post which board they have as each has it's own particular set quirks, features, or lack of features. In short the Sniper 5, M5, and B5 are all different boards with different features and functions, and thus different quirks. Therefor... PLAESE state which board you're talking about.

How do you identify the C2 version(s?) of the M5? The Gigabyte site has "rev. 1.x" listed, so I'm assuming that there is at least a 1.1. The place I want to purchase from has only rev.1.0 units, and I would have thought those were the C1 boards with 1.1 being the C2, although it seems strange to me that anyone would still have any C1 stock left by now.

1) Does anyone have an M5 1.0 that has the C2 stepping?
2) Does anyone have an M5 that is a revision other than 1.0 or 1.1?
3) If there are C2 rev. 1.0 boards, how do you identify them?
4) If "rev. 1.1" doesn't indicate C2 boards specifically, then what's the difference between 1.0 and 1.1?

I hate all this hardware revision rubbish. If they're going to start throwing around new revision numbers, can't they at least state clearly what the differences are? It's like Dell/HP with their bloody monitors.

The fans that came with the corsair h80i were SP performance and were loud as hell. I replaced them with the SP quiet edition that you see in the pic. They only spin at 1400 rpm which is a big difference.

I was able to do the same through the Corsair Link software but the main reason for getting the quiet edition fans is when I first turn on my computer, all fans spin at full speed. It was just an annoyance of mine I hated every morning.

You have the same PCI-E slot problem that I have, only for a different reason. In my situation, I have a dedicated sound card and after my last build I swore I'd always leave at least one empty slot between high end GPUs and other cards for thermal reasons. I want to get an M5, but it will mean I have to have my sound card sandwiched against my 780 Ti, otherwise the GPU's PCI-E slot will be reduced to 8x. My Asus Gryphon is perfect in terms of PCI-E layout, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone due to it's BIOS issues (why I'm getting rid of it).

I can't find any Gigabyte boards available in my country with the Gryphon's PCI-E layout.

This is the board I have coming in tomorrow to replace my Sniper M5 with the correct PCI-E Layout I need for my case.
