Good non-EATX X79 motherboard?

Recommended Posts

I was going to go for ASUS Rampage IV Extreme (EATX) however having trouble finding a case for it that is mid-tower.  I'd like to use 2400Mhz memory as well, and the Noctua D14 has to fit in it.  Suggestions much appreciated...for a mid-tower case that will work for EATX and not look like it belongs in Terminator 5, or for a regular ATX form factor board that over clocks SB-E i7 processors well, handles 2400Mhz DDR3 quad channel, and does PCIe3.0 since all mid-tower cases seem to handle the form factor.

 

Thanks in advance ;o)

Noel, I'm not up with the X79 platform but best bet would be to go online to newegg or something and look for ATX X79 boards and then look for reviews etc.

I don't know what your budget is or if you like one brand over another, but the first three in that list from Asus are all probably pretty good/safe choices going by there Z77/Z87 counterparts.
