On another note,
What does everybody this of Rosewill's new Ranger-M ?
seem's interesting.
it's even smaller than the Core 1000.
anyone know of any other competitors to the Core 1000 in terms of size and price?
( 14" x 16" x 7" ) or less and < 40usd
the Ranger-M can occasionally be found for 40 + free shipping and is 14" x 14" x 7"

I dont know of any smaller but what i do know is that my core 1000 is packed! i have two HDDS in the 5.25 bays and a bunch of cables up there. My H50 takes up some good room for sure! My point is i dont know if i would want a smaller case simply because i dont know where i would put everything and still have it look clean and nice tongue.gif

Loving this thread - just a quick question. I noticed some people really want a mATX case with 5 slots - but my question is why?

What's the 5th slot for?

You should make a mATX case.

I'd buy it.

I was going to go MATX and had a 5 slot case lined up for it. My assumption is that it is for people who want to run dual graphics cards and still have extra expansion cards, ie audio, tv tuners, raid, etc. Well that was my plan for it anyway.

With four slots, both are filled with graphics cards (sli/crossfire). It would be nice to have an extra for additional usb ports, a fan controller or the like.

Things like the upcoming x79 Rampage IV Gene will allow us to seat the 2nd GPU in the 4th slot rather than the 3rd. Better cooling for sli/crossfire and you can fit a sound card there.

Because there are many motherboards that have 4 slots (or take up 4 physically) and if you want to run crossfire/SLI WITH a sound card in between, you'd have to do liquid otherwise it wouldn't work. With 5 slots you could do:

Video card / blank (card's cooler) / sound card / video card / blank (card's cooler)

Without the 5th slot it makes a sound card excessively difficult to use while crossfiring or SLI'ing.

^^^ this pretty much.

for SLi/Xfire, the cooling really suffers especially in conventional configuration. with a 5th slot. this opens up 1 slot between the 2 cards for MUCH better cooling (or allows for a triple slot card like a directCu2 for the main card that does alot of the heavy lifting anyway)
