Silverstone Sugo SG05/06 Owners' Club - Page 123

post #1221 of 1223
Hey guys,

What is the best motherboard to use for this case in terms of how easily you can manage cables and good for facilitating airflow? After all, the one I have now has its big 24-pin connector from the PSU situated right in the middle at the "front" of the motherboard (towards the front of the case). This creates this huge, gigantic blockage practically centered right behind the 120mm fan (on the watercooler) and makes the cable situation an absolute mother (much wiggling about and scrunching and squeezing the cables onto the side of the radiator).

I've browsed for motherboards with the 24-pin connector off-center or away from this location, but I'm not really sure what I would get were I to get a new one. Mind, this isn't the ONLY reason I'd want a new one... there's some other stuff too, like getting one with DDR4 RAM compatibility. So... anyone have suggestions? Thanks.

A layout like the Asrock X99 itx board is probably what you want.

Wow thanks, it looks amazing! Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have enough $$$ anytime soon to drop on it, much less a gigantic weapons-grade Intel X99 chip it's compatible with... thanks anyway though! I'll be on the lookout for similar boards. thumb.gif
