You can't really run more then 2 videocards anyways.

That said some micro atx cases are as big as ATX cases , and I have a couple of Itx cases that are pretty close too ( Enthoo Evolve Itx and Corsair 380t ) so it is becomes just a preference thing
I am hoping for a balls out Itx mobo for Rizen !
Spoken truly as those who only game and only need one or 2 gpus......... Because , you know, absolutely no one puts anything else in those many PCI slots, nor actually puts the effort into making crossfire/SLI work, if they have these horrid issues that so many of you "enthusiasts" keep moaning about........ thumb.gif

I'm digging these and I'm waiting to see the fully loaded options

My point was there is not enough lanes to run more then 2 cards. Not that there is no point in running more then 2 cards.

I hope they come out with workstation boards. Would love to see 7/8 full PCIE slots (so I can position all my cards how I want exactly, not just GPUs).

No one seemed to notice the amd ryzen chips with their max overclocks on the packaging. seems like 4300 is good for these engineering samples. Hopefully they bring that number up with some good oc boards.

Seems like AM3+ CPUs to me. eg. Fx 4300

This would be great, but I doubt it.
Why would they mark that on the chip? That's just purely your assumption?

Also the chip directly to the left (5-6 characters) and right (4 lines of writing) has a lot more marking on it.

Actually, yes, the one on the left has 8370E written on it. Definitely an AM3+ FX CPU.

The issues I was talking about are firstly most Matx boards have their slots too close together and do not let the GPUs cool properly which means that the whole case heats up the fans ramp and the noise goes up - it also massively shortens the life of the cards .
Also I build a lot of PCs 99% ATX almost all have only the one graphics card in the slots - a lot of the time it is because of looks - they want that particular mobo in that case . If it is going to work and not have any issues , I build it how they want it . I personally like the smallest machine that will hold my gear and work without frying stuff . My gaming rig at present is a Gryphon z97 mobo in a Corsair 350d with an intel 4790k cpu and a pair of 780gtx in sli - about to be replaced by a Z170 Pro Gaming ( Asus again ) with a 6700k and unknown as yet GPU - Itx and single gpu !
Yes my Sli was working properly but some things can not be fixed ( motherboard slot placement and form factor )
What I was saying was Full Atx for sli / multi gpu , but otherwise Matx is fine for single . Lack of nice micro atx cases is an issue for some .
For me unless I am going to build an SLI system ( or crossfire) with gpu waterblocks and custom loop cooling I have no need for full Atx .
As a note I live in an area where 40c ambient temps occur from time to time .
I am old now and game much less than I used too but I still have a separate computer for gaming to productivity -
sorry for O.T.
