URGENT i7 review ORDER IN ONE HOUR! - Page 4

You are disillusioned, young grasshopper. I've been down that path, I've seen many examples of people spending thousands on the best of the best and what do they come out with? Disappointment a couple of months down the road. Why? Because the top end is always the first to get outdated. As much as this may sound like I'm pooping on your parade, your decision did not utilize common sense, so you left me no choice.
Just a case of jealousy.

@Megas: Bad choice for the case. Why not listen to the original recommendations and go with a HAF 932 or 1200 (Antec).

I honestly don't like the HAF 932 style wise, I was skeptic if the 1200 would fit my mobo because it is really longer than ATX by one inch 12x10.6.

I still have yet to order the case, it is the last thing to do. everything else is already on the way.

What do you have against the Cosmos S anyway? (it still has plenty of vents(with filters too))

So if you have a good recommendation go ahead.
Preferably if it can fit a Noctua NH-U12P here

Yes it can fit in the 1200. Don't expect TRI-SLI to fit though or align properly.

YES. Robilar even showed pictures that the 1200 accomodates multiple video cards better than the COSMOS-S.

Yes they will fit. No problems running CROSSFIREX or TRI-SLI. No problems with space either. If you run dual slot video cards then don't buy a seperate sound card there is no room.

Sweet system, the Antec 1200 is an awesome case and I've heard it fits the R2E fine, but I don't think it would align the expansion slots correctly for Tri-Sli, but seeing as you are going Crossfire you won't have to worry about that.

It does fit without any problems. Crossfire or SLI/Tri-SLI is no problem either. The expansion port's line up perfectly.

Does it I heard that you needed a system with 10 expansion slots, and the 1200 only has 7. I maybe wrong, if so thanks for correcting me.

I think the Asus Rampage2E with Tri SLI or Crossfire x would still work
