Some people love the MATX builds... They are just not what you want for a high end overclocking system..

Yeah. Personally i haven't caught on to why people like them. Smaller seems to be weaker.. I always by ATX or Extended ATX so that in the future i can support dual or triple Crossfire.

Exactly. The space restrictions and support of only ONE pci-e 2.0 really hamper one's options. Never making that mistake again.

@ ca.j.stokes

Thanks for posting the pics up. Really it is not near as cramped as I figured a min-ITX setup would be. Shoot you have an H50 with push pull, a 650 watt PSU and a GTX 460 in there, very nice. Sure I'll probably stick with ATX for my main system and it will limit your options. It is a very neat build though. People should note that this is mini-itx which makes micro ATX look big. I think one would make a sweet Home theatre or media center build and you just proved that one could be built with quite a bit of power behind it. All in all very nice. + to you for a unique build and giving me some ideas of what can be done with the mini-ITX platform.

If you LAN a lot, they're a lot more convenient to carry around. My case weighs approximately 30lbs, and while it's not much, it's just annoying to lug around with me.

But the power behind it is just so much more vast. The ability for a good CPU, loads of RAM and up to triple or quad SLI. Endless possibilities..

Definitely man. As a first build I wanted to start out small but instead created more work than was needed when I chose the h50. But oh well. A few restrictions though: It can only house a gtx 460 or smaller. If you wanted to go bigger, you'd have to remove the the pull fan from the h50. And second, if I were to build this again, I'd get an ssd (a big one) and then one of those 3tb green drives and mount it at the top. If you can see in the second picture, I had to use a 5.25 inch adapter to 3.5. Not gonna lie, it was kind of a pain.

Better to get one of those NZXT Vulcans to achieve SLI or Crossfire. It's got handles to boot
Or the antec lanboy air, but that seems like a mess. No offense to anyone who has it here.

agree'd 100%

got all my rig in a 690 II Adv now and hate it with a passion.... no room for anything, no room for big hands.. all my benching rig's are on motherboard tray's or a test bench and ton's easier to get around it to move and fix stuff.
