post #761 of 1869
Hey everyone. I just bought this case and can't figure out if this supports Micro ATX motherboards? I want to make a build with 32GB RAM but can't find a Mini ITX motherboard for that.

nope, only supports, ITX. Maybe with some modding you might be able to fit a mATX board, but you'd likely lose the HDD rack on the side. I'm sure there are ITX boards that support 16GB RAM per slot

EDIT: There are ITX boards that support a max of 32GB RAM, but they are mostly socket 1151 boards with the exception of one socket 2011 board

Thanks. Then I will think about 1151 build though it's a bit expensive.

Hi. I was looking for something similar before I bought my Asrock FM2A88X-ITX+ Mini ITX; I founded this one http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=1553&CategoryID=1&MenuID=189&DCID=2&LanID=11 it can tightly fit.

Note: the mine support 32gb RAM

I think, indeed, 32GB on ITX pretty much dictates going socket 1151.

@Fungy, you're sure you really need 32 GB ? What's your use ?
My radar is currently full of incoming games, but none of them have any vague requirement, in order to run better of 32GB vs 16.
The most RAM demanding game I know of is actually planetary annihilation and 16 is good for optimal gameplay ...

Yeeeeeaah... ECS... no thanks....

I agree with @termathor, 32GB seems a little over kill unless you'll be doing some pretty hardcore video editing, rendering etc, then it might be worth it depending on price. But taking into consideration the higher price of socket 1151 plus the cost of 32 GB RAM rather than 16GB, personally, I'd go socket 1150 with 16 GB RAM and put the money saved into an upgrade somewhere else(better CPU or GPU, SSD, etc)

Yes, ECS isn´t the best choice (where I work, we got a lot of ECS MBs and always we got to change it for a new one) and yes, 32gb of RAM are too much even for "hardcore video editing"; I have 16gb RAM and I can work and play without any problems; like Morencyam said, you should saved some money to buy a GPU or CPU or even a cooling upgrade.

I'm working in Photoshop and Zbrush and I see that my current 8GB laptop really slows my work process. So I decided to take a compact desktop case and install as much memory as possible and forget about upgrading for next few years.

The slow work is caused by other components (maybe the GPC or CPU) of the laptop (specially because is a laptop) not the RAM. I got Zbrush in my office´s PC (Intel pentium E5400 & 2gb RAM) and it works pretty well. Too much RAM is not a good idea for a PC that you´ll only use for Photoshop & Zbrush, instead of that you should buy a decent GPU (I know a lot guys gonna agree with me).

As Mysterdoog said, and having a look at http://pixologic.com/zbrush/system/, since zbrush is probably the most demanding app you target, I'm still doubtfull you really need 32GB of RAM, along with all the implications ...
It's still possible, but, to me, very unlikely.

I'd suggest you assess more toroughly why it's slow on your laptop. It's highly likely it is CPU or GPU.

What kind of work on zbrush is slow ? Modlelling ? Rendering ? What's your laptop exactly ?
As for Photoshop, last I've checked, there is no way a modern rig with 16 GB can ever struggle with it, whatever you're doing ...

PS: just to inform you, whenever an app (game or anything else) on Windows or any current operating systems runs out of memory, memory is added up from disk space, through something called swap space. It basically means any access to this part of memory is 100 of times slower, if you're on typical hard drive (not SSD). Basically, your application is halted. Just saying, so you can better assess what's going on.
