I am looking to build an ITX computer for normal use and some gaming. I was looking at the ASRock Z77E-ITX but it looks like there will not be enough room for a decent video card and an H60 CPU block. I was also looking at the ASUS P8Z77I-Deluxe, that one looks to be ok too but a full size video card looks like it might block the sATA connections (im guessing they wiill fit though). Does anyone have either of these boards that may be able to shed some light on the room availablitity issue? Or should I just go mATX or full size even though I am trying not to use too big of a case.

thanks all.

This is the only case that alleviates your Mini-ITX concerns. Except it's not really that small.

yes that's actually the case i was looking at (probably should have mentioned that) since it can fit a larger video card as well as the H60 water block. my main concern is the motherboard at this point.

Ah, I guess I misread the post.

The SATA ports are above the video card slot, at worst you'll lose the bottom most one, but they never take up the slot above it (usually)
