    Anyone have any thoughts on ITX socket 1155 builds? Im currently running a rampage gene 2 with a core i7 920 running dual gtx 460's. All of which is water cooled in a danger den tower. I am thinking of going back to air cooling and an ITX build with a single gtx 560.

    any thoughts on how those ITX boards perform ?

    The main thing to be aware of is that the vast majority of mini-ITX LGA1155 boards are H67. H67 does not allow overclocking of the CPU. Some manufacturers have announced Z68 mini-itx boards but at least newegg don't seem to be selling any of them yet.
