Club for those with beastly mATX/ITX rigs. - Page 295

for example, an OC unlocked Llano running Xfire wouldn't have very good numbers compared with someone running a 2600k+7970, but if it was well built i'd still consider it a beastly ITX build.
so the only way to categorize this "club" would be by form factor and the case manufacture. might be able to break that down into air or liquid cooling, but this category will definitely be dominated by air cooling due to size constriction.

We've done this discussion before. Search all the posts that the OP made in this thread to see the intent, but short summary was that everyone is welcome, as long as they don't post pics of their full tower ATX 3xSLI rig and try to claim it's small form factor.

This is the case I'll be using, when it comes out.

One site says it'll be released in March.

That little guy looks amazing. It's like a mini Magnum biggrin.gif. Support for SLI/Crossfire GPU's up to 32cm? Damn, that means you should be able to crossfire 2 7970's in that thing.

I am just wondering how big it really is... cuz I had a Cubitek Mini Tank for ITX and it was just WAY too big for an ITX box.

Watch the newegg unboxing of the case, it looks like you could fit the girl doing the unboxing inside of it.

There's a video preview on youtube from newegg. It's not that big at all really. Bigger than most matx boxes, but not as big as an atx box yet.

Man that thing looks huge, but damn its really nice. I want side by side comparison pics to a FT03 and some mid towers. Just got my Titanium FT03 but Im really digging that Gigas.

Agreed. Looks like a full sized ATX board in there. Also it looks like if you do SLI/Xfire your first GPU with be suffocated even more with the PSU right over it. And it looks like a PITA to install the mobo unless the bottom panel comes off.

 

Terrible "MATX" case in my opinion.

Yes but I disagree this orders. why need sound card? Most cases have front I/O Panel: Spk/ Audio or Back Panel I/O Port: audio jack which one you should use for. again, five slots is totally useless! C'mon, dude... if you wanted five slots, then go buy mid-tower case have six or seven expansion slots instead of uATX.. mATX case/ mainboard are purpose for single GPU card, not SLI/CFX. If you wanted SLI card, then suggest to buy single 590 dual GPU card instead of sli two cards, simply..wink.gif

mATX motherboard is mostly requiring the specify fourth component parts as mITX motherboard required two or three component parts, unfortunately manufacturers making mITX case with two expansion slots limit. . Most manufacturers making the traditional mATX/SFF case with four slots since 1997, invented and introduced to builders . tongue.gif

The Inwin Dragon Slayer.
Yeah, few people bought it, so INWIN DS didnt selling very well, not because of ugly case.. Shoppers notice case has five slots and thinking it useless.. tell me why many shoppers bought mATX tj08e has four slots than Inwin Dragon Slayer case after launch day? *MMMM* ...
