PowerColor Radeon HD 6870 x2 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity AX6870X2 2GBD5-2DHG

Pros: Runs WOW and Homefront so far without a hitch on the highest possible settings. im hoping it will do the same with battlefield 3 when it comes out.

Cons: HUGE! well really long. pan on having 2 video cards side by side. install disc was a bit confusing due to the screen being jumbled up.

Overall Review: make sure to have a big case, a big power supply. im running a corsair 700watt

Supports AM1!

ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: looks good, powers up fine and performs very well. M.2 on the back of board is easy to install a hd into and sits very close the board and had no issues with spacing when installing into case. over clocking settings work well up to 4.7ghz stable with my 6700k. My memory runs 2800mhz and has no issues with a 1 click setting on the main bios screen. The board looks very nice, I wish had purchased a windowed case.

Cons: Bios freezes up all the time even after update which fixed the problem i was having where when I changed anything in bios it would switch my boot drive to a different drive without windows and require me to change it back if I didn't check it before saving. I can live with the bios issue but it is the reason i knocked an egg off.

Overall Review: I used to be a hard core Asus fan but they didn't offer a mini itx at this time so i went with Asrock. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Asrock product if it fit the build.

Dat fan

Pros: powers all of my components in rvz 01 build cables rout perfectly.

Cons: when fan turns on it is noisy. Luckily it only runs when I'm gaming with my head phones on.

Pros: price/performance

Cons: had to use slim fan in rvz01 case in order to get it to fit but that was my problem trying to fit an all in one into that case.

Overall Review: keeps 6700k below 80c @4.7ghz (Asrock selectable OC) in a tight space.
