Ah ok. Hopefully you're right. I'd be pretty upset if it had no cable management holes.

Regarding the rear USB hole, are you talking about the row of 3 water cooling holes with black rubber grommets? The photos on Newegg show only 2 holes but other sites show 3.

azno, what do you think about this motherboard? I know you mentioned the X-58A 4-way, but this is the "Classified" and DOES have SATA3.0.

Edit: Ooops, brainfart....SATA3.0 is bad. Sorry.
Edit2:

It's not XLATX (btw, I think only 2 have ever been made), but it's EATX: ASUS Rampage III Black Edition Republic of Gamers. It's all black, so it matches you color scheme (I know how important that is ), it does USB3.0 and SATA6.0 as would be expected, 6x240 slots, AND it's Socket 1366 for your i7.

Yeah I saw that R3 black edition when looking around for larger motherboards. It's really nice but I just can't justify spending so much on a motherboard. I would make more sense to get a Rampage III Extreme since it's the same size. But at that point I'd might as well just get the Gigabyte X58A-OC since it's only .2" narrower than the Rampage.

Ahhhh... decisions decisions. I still want an XL ATX so badly but nothing is really suitable. I may end up just getting the Gigabyte. The color scheme is too perfect.

Yeah, that X58A-OC is absolutely perfect for you. I wonder if you can take some of your sleeving as a sample over to a store that has one so you can compare the oranges in person. My red sleeving isn't the same red as my case. Oh, well...it's close. I wonder how close yours is.

Yeah I'm sure there will always be a little bit of variation in color, but as long as it's not like crimson red vs light red it should still look good.

I'm pretty certain I'm going to get the X58A-OC now. I looked a couple photos of someone's V2120X with an E-ATX mobo installed and it's not too bad. I might find a suitable reservoir for water cooling to place right under the motherboard and on top of the mid plate that sections off the PSU. There's going to be a lot of empty space there without one.

I should have a picture up in the 2nd/3rd post on my project thread....it's close enough that I'm not pissed. The camera really brings out the difference stronger than in real life.

However, I'm interested to see what your colors look like as well as to see what your Water cooler setup looks like.

I won't be getting watercooling any time soon. I'm going to wait for Southern Islands and see how it performs. If it's revolutionary, I may ditch my 6950's for a pair of those. Hopefully they keep the red/black striped reference cooler because it seriously looks awesome and happens to match my build very well.

If I do get a pair of HD7000's I will probably get watercooling soon afterward. I just don't want to spend time and $$$ on waterblocks for my 6950's and then realize they're outdated and will no longer max out the latest games.

My i7 970 will also become outdated pretty soon, but still far from obsolete. I chose it over the i7 950 (which I could have bought for $80) last year for a reason: the extra power should last me a lot longer. I plan to keep it through multiple generations of graphics cards. Probably one more generation after Southern Islands/Kepler.

I'm pretty certain I'm going to get the X58A-OC now. I looked a couple photos of someone's V2120X with an E-ATX mobo installed and it's not too bad. I might find a suitable reservoir for water cooling to place right under the motherboard and on top of the mid plate that sections off the PSU. There's going to be a lot of empty space there without one.
Hi aznofazns,

Any chance you could post those photos of the X58A-OC in the V2120X case?

Sure. Don't know when I'm going to get the mobo though. Probably not until sometime in September.
