Other options are to get multiple 120mm or 200mm rads...take the time to look through the build logs...there are plenty of people who have done it, it just takes a little bit of work.

Will do, thank you sir thumb.gif

regarding the m-itx power issue...
Zotac actually makes a z68 m-itx motherboard with 8 pin power delivery, and the guys at bit-tech pushed an i5 to 4.7 on it. thumb.gif

hopefully there will be more performance itx boards in the future...

also, bitfenix is releasing a m-itx case named prodigy. looks like a miniature mac pro case biggrin.gif

Not sure if any of you guys browse the news section but I thought I'd post it here to get your opinion.

I present the Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe mobo. biggrin.gif

ASUS unveiled a new mini-ITX motherboard based on the Intel Z77 chipset, supporting LGA1155 processors, the P8Z77-I Deluxe. Despite is ultra-compact form the designers crammed in as many features as possible, including a powerful 10-phase Digi+ VRM. ASUS found an ingenious way of designing the VRM area, by raising it to a (fixed?) add-on card north of the CPU socket. This VRM riser has the electrical controller, the 10-phase VRM, complete with chokes, drivers, and FETs, and a MOSFET heatsink. This board is one of the few of its form-factor that draws power from an 8-pin EPS, apart from the 24-pin ATX.

The LGA1155 socket is wired to two full-length DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting dual-channel DDR3 memory, and a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot. There are four SATA ports on board, two each of SATA 6 Gb/s and 3 Gb/s. Connectivity includes 6-channel HD audio with 7.1 channel optical SPDIF output, four USB 3.0 ports (two front, two rear), gigabit Ethernet, wireless b/g/n network controller, and a number of USB 2.0 ports. The board features UEFI BIOS, and USB BIOS Flashback. Expect the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe to launch in April. More variants, based on this exact design, can be expected.

Think it'll clock as well as the Gene-Z now?

extra vrms, does this mean itx can finally overclock to atx/matx's level?
post #3166 of 13149

That thermal armor is quite sexy. Too bad it is only an ATX.

If you're reading this Asus, I want a mATX and mITX on the Sabertooth Line! tongue.gif

This mITX will certainly be my next board. I hope they make a waterblock for the VRMs.

That would be amazing! I want a military grade M ITX board. I'd ditch my system for on in a heart beat. Only problem would be containing all that awesome in such a small box.

post #3169 of 13149
might look nice on the upcoming bitfenix itx case.

still waiting on my vulcan and i've found out i bought the wrong size acrylic(8 by 12 inch), too small :/
post #3170 of 13149

I have seen the new Bitfenix case. It's pretty neat looking. I still think it's too big for my taste. If I got ITX It's gotta tiny.
