MSI Z97 GAMING 5 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Austin..... no Z97 board has SLI capability with anything plugged into the 3rd PCI slot....except for the very rare few that have PEX chip. This is true for ever brand out there.

Cons: Like every other Z97 board (w/o PEX) , it only offers 16 PCI lanes.....each card in SLI uses 8 lanes.

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model 997083
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Usually buy the 2 x 8GB sets in the Ridgeback style but as these were for a light duty PC (Mudder's Day present). At this usage level, also would not normally have selected DDR3 2400 but at $2 more than DDR3-1600 it's the proverbial "no brainer".

Usually check the Ridgebacks as a simple screw removal lets me check what modules are used, didn't do that here but assuming that the 10-12-12-28 timings indicates that they are still Hynix. Each time I have looked, at a module w/ 10-12-12-28 it's been Hynix and 10-12-12-31 it's been something else.

Low profile however insures no air cooler interference issues.

Cons: I understand that this goes counter to the Redline moniker, but now that GSkill has jumped into the niche that Avexir created with colors matching MoBo accents, I'm hoping that Muskin starts catering to this market also.

Phanteks Phanteks Enthoo Series Primo Aluminum PH-ES813P_BL Black w/ Blue LED Aluminum faceplates / Steel chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easily fit twin 780s and internal tube reservoir, 15 Phanteks F140SP fans running off three Phanteks hubs.....280 + 420 rads

Cons: I wish I had waited for the white one.

Version 2's door should have options to:

-reverse hinges

-provide several inserts a) clear for digital displays b) vented c) solid

Other Thoughts: Just a note for James who had trouble fitting cards. Suggest visiting the Enthoo Owners club thread on overclock dot net as loads of folks have high end GFX cards and cylinder res. I have a 250mm one myself with twin 780s

I have done SLI builds with with twin 780 Ti's and twin 970s. Note that on many cases the card dimension is shorter than the cooler dimension.... and once you take off the cooler and put on the water block it fits just fine.

If you go to the aforementioned thread and look at Post # 1000 you can download a CAD drawing which shows all relevant dimensions.
