    As you can tell cable management is not too high on my list of to do's. I have never had either side on this case, last one i will ever buy. Case just gets in my way too often. There is a second 1200W Thermaltake behind the case powering the last 580 and a few fans and pumps.

    Man ooh man, thats one build that could make the guys at CES jealous. I got the Sabertooth, I just couldn't spend the extra 110.00USD on the RIVE. I only use water on my CPU ( Swiftech Edge Kit H20-320) You are head and heels above me in the cooling factor. Man would I love to see BF3 on that 30" Dell of yours. Very nice setup DooRules. with 3 X 580GTX GPUs I guess you would need another 1200Ws LOL. With a setup like that you need a Danger Den Torture Rack. ( Just j/king) it looks great the way it is.

    I think this summer my buddy and I will be building a couple of open cases for ourself. Should work out much better for me, always tinkering with something.

    Saw this online at CES, we said man that has to easy as hell to make, so something like this is our starting point.

    ASRock turn dial to 11 with X79 Extreme11 motherboard
    SATA-III ports are rated at 6.0 GB's speed, so it has 10 SATA-III 6.0 ports on it. SATA-II is 3.0GBs speed.
    It really IS a beast of a board.

    Yeah, I find it a bit funny that it was not thrown out there as a selling point. Be disappointing if it can only be storage, not a deal breaker, but disappointing none the less.

    I'll bet that they are bootable. Can't prove it yet, but I have faith in ASRock seeing it through. The board uses a LSI SAS2308 chip on it and it's bootable on other implementations. Intel uses it in their add on controllers. Those are bootable.

    Good read here on that mobo as well. They have a lot to get running smoothly. Not to mention the heat.

    ASRock's X79 Extreme11 has a very fitting name by VR-Zone.com

    The water cooling guys will have fun with this one. Don't know how it will act on air though. By the way, welcome to PureOC.
