As is having one GPU. Which with a 20 threaded CPU seems like cutting off your nose to spite your face, but you can do what you please wink.gif.

The whole point of the system when I built it was to see how much power could be crammed into a mini-iTX system. There are limitations inherent to such a system, but for its size, it performs quite well...wink.gif

lol, I bet it does! Be interested to see how that board does with memory considering it is down two channels. You may be able to reach fairly high frequency. I would at least look at that given the compromise.
