If you are planning on spending about $200 on a mobo, there aren't that many $200 mobos that can tri/quad sli/crossfire, which is really the major thing. With the matx you can sli/crossfire, but you might not be able to fight another expansion card in there, like a sound card, raid card, wifi card etc, although they are supposed to be able to fit that. If you go with the VI gene, then you definitely can't fit in another card if you SLI/crossfire, due to the arrangement of the PCI lanes.

That may have been a little much info and not enough formatting, so if you have any questions ask, if you want suggestions on a motherboard, I would say you should ask the people in the motherboard forums, I'm not really an expert on that sort of thing.

Thanks for the advice. I am looking to put my two ssd's into a raid 0 config, and also am looking to put in a wifi card. I have read some mobos have built in raid support so you do not need to buy a raid controller. I was looking at the asus vi hero for an atx or the asus vi gene for an matx. do you know if those boards have prebuilt raid features?

Don't worry yourself of the RAID features as most modern motherboards have them. If you'll will be using (2) powerful video cards (each video cards occupy at least 2 slots) then you need to get a bigger case such as the 750D. Going with the 350D you might have problems adding a WiFi card or a sound card as all the (4) PCI-E are occupied. Even if you watercool your rig you still need a riser cable if you're really intent on putting a WiFi card or a sound card instead of getting an external USB one. The 350D has one extra PCI-E slot that you can use with a riser cable. You'll be able to put one (without using a riser cable) if you'll get a motherboard with the 2nd PCI-E slot for the video card on the last slot (such as the Gigabyte mini-ITX Sniper motherboard) but you'll have heat issues as there's no more space inbetween the video cards in you add a WiFi card.

Arg this case is doing my head in. Has anyone managed to get a 240 rad mounted up top with rigid tubing and a bay res?

well you could do it just fine the problem is filling and emptying the loop efficiently and I might add it is a tight fit. I have a 45 coming off the top port on my D5 bay res to clear the rad also I have an EX 240 in the top offset to fit. I would add that putting the fans below the rad gives you a few more millimeters of clearance because rads stick out just a bit on the ends.

Do you suggest having the chambers at the front of the case or the back?

Installed the waterblock for my GTX 780 Ti Classified. I had to re-route the tubing that goes to the rad. in the front because the card is so long that the way I had it before wouldn't, which was a pain because I had to remove everything to cut a hole in the drive bay. But, it's all in and works.

Is the rad/pump in the drive bay?
