    Gigabyte ITX now live... Doesnt show up under any searches though

    Rig: R1700 with Cryorig M9A, RX480, Crucial 32GB DDR4 2400, MX300 250GB M.2, 2 SSDs, Seasonic 650. Received this morning and installed in a Fractal Node 304. That USB 3.0 header is a long stretch in that case (coming from the bottom right). There is enough slack with the default cable, but...

    Thanks. Placed mine as well. Also got this $20 rebate link through a gigabyte promo email a few days ago if you leave a review with amazon/newegg.

    Is there a way for me to fit a 2280 M.2 in MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC (Supports 2242 and 2260)?

    I have this same motherboard with a MX300 installed (2280). The installation of the larger size is not the challenge (as nothing prevents it), but securing it is. I ended up using some fishing string to wrap around secure it to the old 2260 mounting screw (with electric tap on top to prevent...

    [W]arm- BEst Buy Nvidia GTX970 (stock) $329 (Incl. Arkham Knight)

    Sorry about that. At least from my own experience, it does perform very good for a blower style cooler. I know noise was a common complaint with the other blower style coolers.

    [W]arm- BEst Buy Nvidia GTX970 (stock) $329 (Incl. Arkham Knight)

    Not yet. I know noise, as I run an ITX box (node 304) that is on a shelf at ear level, was a big concern (outside of coil whine). I ran a XFX DD 7950 previously and this is noticeably quieter under load. At idle I can't even hear it. I have not heard any coil whine either with my Seasonic PSU.

    [W]arm- BEst Buy Nvidia GTX970 (stock) $329 (Incl. Arkham Knight)

    I picked one up, earlier in the week, and the card also includes a back plate. As others have pointed out, it does have the Titan X cooler. I was torn between this or the MSI, but glad this came up as I had BB credit and it turned out to be very quiet (even at load in FarCry 4).

    MSI Mobo died 2 months out of warranty :( Anything I can do?

    Sucks, but writing a company off because they would not support a product with expired warranty might be a little harsh. On the bright side you had a product that had no issues for the advertised warranty length of the product. I have seen far worse with people trying to get in warranty support...
