You'll have to water cool both to fit everything in there. If so, either will work fine.

Do you encode or have any use for the X79 platform?

Also for a case, the TJ-08e will fit everything you need and a 200mm Phobya rad in the front.

Money is not an issue since I have a few giftcards lying around that could go towards the motherboard, but been also looking
for a good mATX case that can support those three components and maybe an H80 from my previous build.

Sell your current 560 TI, go with the Gene-Z with either a 2500K or a 2600/2700K (if you encode or do other HT stuff) and a 7950 or 7970 (or Kepler if you prefer).

Or if media work and HT-related stuff is more important for you, go with the Rampage with a 3930K (OOS in most places, so expect to pay $150+ above MSRP). The i7-3820 performs equal or worse than the 2600/2700K in most situations and won't overclock as well.

The key benefit of the Rampage besides X79 is much more PCIE flexibility; you can go full 16x + 16x SLI/CFX whereas the Maximus will top out at 8x + 8x.

If the rear 120 is also utilized, it will cause more air to escape out of that exit and less for the card.

yah, sometimes i feel like an anti-ehume in my case airflow theories biggrin.gif while he's a great believer in the nibbler, i'm a great believer in duct tape biggrin.gif I believer in only using enough cooling air to get the job done in order to reduce overall noise level. so in area where i have no need for cooling air, i tend to seal it off with duct tape smile.gif on my own machine i even taped off half of my PSU exhaust because it rarely draws enough power to heat up biggrin.gif I like keeping a positive pressure in the case so i can direct where the cooling air goes and how much of it goes where by strategically sealing off or opening up vent holes in the case. by keeping a relative positive pressure, the exhaust air is accelerated thereby increasing the cooling effect of the existing airflow. essentially if i have 100cfm of intake air, I want that 100cfm to go exactly where i need it to go so i don't end up using 200cfm to do the job that 100cfm can smile.gif

I've never had to get so in depth with my cooling. mITX makes it easy. I literally have 3 sections on my case.

1 in the front from left to right for the psu (Has discrete intake and exhaust).

1 on the left for GPU

1 on the right and top for CPU.

Hell I could probably run my H80 passive since the intake air only has one place to go and that is through the H80. biggrin.gif

Finally got my rig at least put together! I'd love to join!

700

Just a prelim picture. Did some slight modding today already, enlarged the hole for the psu cables so my sea sonic x1250 can fit. Will be doing a window mod possibly with a fan to feed the 2x 7970s.


Current specs are:

i5-2500k
ASUS Maximus Gene - Z
2x MSI 7970 OC edition
H80 Cooler with 2 Silverstone AP121s, possibly changing to AP-15s
Sea Sonic X-1250 PSU
Corsair Vengeance 2x4 GB 1600
OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120gb
750gb WD Black Caviar


Please excuse the cables, still trying to finish up sleeving. Possibly buying extensions from Lustro when he gets better!

just a quick FYI, the SSD actually fits under the HDD as seen here
700

or alternatively you can put it behind the mobo as seen here
399
399

they are all ideas stolen from the TJ08-E club thread smile.gif

Yep I figured that part out but I'm trying to decided where best to stick this ssd, I love the black/silver sticker on it haha would like to show it off.

ahh, cant find the photo atm, but i remember seeing someone velcro a pair of force SSD's on the side of the 5.25 bays to show off the label. anyway. the system looks very nice and should perform like the true beast it's designed to be smile.gif

I would not recommend the TJ08e for an X79 setup because that is exactly what I have and I am running into issues.
1. Water cooling with something like the H80 is impossible unless you have low profile RAM.
2. An X79 platform (If anything like mine) requires power and not a lot of large capacity PSU's fit in there. I have an AX750 and there is hardly enough room to fit my optical drive in there, it actually broke my $400 2TB hard drive, the SATA data connector snapped due to being stressed against the PSU wiring.
3. Nice for air cooling but not for water cooling. If you use 2 radiators that takes up all fans and there is not much airflow for the motherboard and RAM.

Just my personal experience.
