I am building a system with the Sabertooth X79 MB along with the Corsair H80i cooler per your recommendation and find that the cooler will not fit in the rear or top position due to interference with the Corsair Vengance memory cooling fins.
Do you actually build a reccomended setup or just test the components and make the reccomendation?
I solved the issue by mounting one fan externally in the rear position with the cooler and second fan internally, this works. I will have to get a fan grille or just remember not to get too close to the open fan.

Going from past knowledge MPC builds every computer they promote. Unless the budget has become to tight I don't see why they would stop doing so.

I understand and believe they do also, I just dont know if they build a machine off their reccomended parts list to assure everything at least goes together mechanically.

Oh ok, I get your question now. No I don't think they would be able to keep up with it. Even if the same item is on the recommended list for a long time the manufacture might change the design (ie size or bulk) of the item in the interm.
