AsRock P55m-Pro motherboard has arrived after ordering the Asus which was not in stock. I didnt want to wait so i opted for a few millimeters bigger and $45 cheaper. That few millimeters are costly as it was just too big to fit without having to do any modifications on the case. I will need to dremel out the supports of the case and faceplate as they stuck out the 5mm that i needed.
Dimms 244mm x 224mm
At this rate fitting everything in looks impossible. I plan to run a 2 fan radiator across the whole case but i might opt for a one fan radiator and have the graphics card sticking out. Now with the graphics on the outside i will have room to mount the cd drive. Once the motherboard is mounted and the ram is in i will be able to find out what space is left.
