Mine is in a white Bitfenix Prodigy... well it was until I took it all apart to mod the case and water cool it. At this very moment the board is back in its box waiting for me to finish the modding.

So, this motherboard has wifi with the antenna, and I was wondering if anyone knew if there was any way to switch out the card with cords that runs to the back of the case for just the traditional antennas that you see on some cards and on routers. Anyone know what to search for? I think it would make the whole thing come together better.

I install hundreds of industrial wireless devices in shops, they appear to be a standard antenna let me check brb...

Just checked and after-market antenna screwed right on, I remember reading somewhere that someone replace the ugly stock antenna with some after-market ones from a router

That is what I thought, they seemed pretty standard. I guess I will order two antennas to replace those and see how it works because I get tired of my antenna sitting next to the case, and I put it inside the case and my ping was 890ms with .1mbps down and 0 up... lol. Thanks!

Here's my ITX rig using the AsRock z77E. For cooling, I'm using a Corsair H60 which has been working alright. I feel like my temps are a bit high though. At stock speed, my i5 3570k idles around 40c and at load it's 59-60c. Perhaps using a different thermal paste instead of the pre-applied stuff would help. Could also be that my ambient temp of 80f is making it run on the warm side. Really like the motherboard though. At some point in the future I'm going to get more RAM(4GB just isn't enough) and replace the hard drive on the floor of the case with an SSD.

I think its an okay temp to have, the radiator is partially being blocked by the psu. But in all that looks real nice, can you fit anymore cables in the drive bays? The cabling still is good for a mini itx, mine is good but I cant finalize it until I get the cpu and gpu I want. Also, do you use the included antenna?

Yes, hiding more cables is on the to-do list. Yeah, I'm using the included antenna but I'd like to get some antennas like the ones suggested earlier cause the included antenna is kinda ugly and annoying with those long tiny wires.

I think I found good antennas, google sparkfun WRL-00145 and see what you think. I will email them and see about getting a pair.

Just for people with stock clocks and small spaces,

The 3570k should be able to undervolt to at least 0.9v, I have two z77e-itx + 3570k @ 0.880v
