Looking at the board in the picture above it is hard to find a place to start.

:partyman:
cool now will be able to fit a quad and still have room for X-fi or HDTV tuner or Physics card PCIe 1x

as far as the case I have that worked ont he the thermatake Xaser VI or Armor VH6000 series both come with steel or Aluminium variants as well as air or water cooled (LCS)

Was thinking I have to live with on-board audio till now .... :supz:

Possible issue are the pipes fitted with quick relase values

alternative/additional cooling via the Nautilus500™
