No. That's a lot of $$$ to spend on a switch that will mean little in my overall build. If I had enough rep to list in the classifieds, maybe, but not necessary. I AM trying to get the watercooled Northbridge heatsink from a Formula board and put it on my Gene though. My goal is to pack do much water into this case that it could double as an aquarium lol.

Looking into a rather tight build with gene. Few quick questions for the owners here who have an accurate measurment tool at hand. Can anyone measure the length from the top edge of the board to the edge of the ram sticks? Also the size specs of the mPCIe combo card would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I don't have any tools handy but it's about 5/8".

Thank you =)

Figure my plans might be a little too tight. Im trying to work out how to fit a 120.2 rad and fans in the top of a lian li v600f. Looks like im gonna be able to fit my ram sticks, but there wont be room for the mPCIe unless i place the rad more towards the front then i was planning... Guess it isnt essensial anyway. -Do you use it?

Appreciate the quick answers guys!

Excuse me whether this has already been answered, but you can use the Gene's PCIe x4 slot to connect a PCIe x1 sound card such as Xonar DX while using a PCIe x16 video card?

No, but maybe if you have water blocks on the GPUs. Otherwise the GPU will most always cover it.

Also, when i installed my HDD( from other PC) i got a BSOD(0x0000007B) so i had to reformat my drive. I'm also getting a CPU fan error at post, i've got it plugged into the right header but it has something to do with getting below 600rpm, anyone know how to make it run 100%?

Guys, can you get a pic and CPU-Z when you get a chance so I can add you to the owners' list?

There are two slot between PCIe x16 and PCIe x4 slots on GENE!
What I wonder is about compatibility and conflicts.
If the GPU is a single-slot card then yes but otherwise it won't fit as there are millimeters between 2 dual-slot GPUs when installed on the this board.

Sorry if I was not understandable.

What I meant is what I ask next: can you connect a sound card in the PCIe x4 slot with or without single video card?

This way:

# slot on the case:

1 - PCIe x16 - video card;
2 - None;
3 - PCIe x16 - empty;
4 - PCIe x4 - sound card.

Oh ok I gotchya. Yes. I had a blonde moment from not even looking at the mobo and thinking the [email protected] was between the 2 PCIE 3.0s, when in actuality it's under the bottom PCIE 3.0.
