Ready to purchase (for real)!


Feb 2, 2012
I am back on the bandwagon and ready to make a purchase of the X51! Is anyone aware of any discount codes?

Jeff, I may build a Mini-ITX system around this Asus might want to consider this also.


I may go with this slightly larger ITX case since it fits Corsair's Liquid Coolers too.

Bitfenix Prodigy Case

5.25" Drive Bays:1 (removable)
3.5" Drive Bays:5 (3 + 2 modular)
2.5" Drive Bays:9 (5 + 2 + 1 +1 )
Cooling Front:120mm x 2 (120mm x 1included) or 140/180/200/230mm x 1(optional)
Cooling Rear:120mm x 1 (included) or 140mm x 1(optional)

I think I can build it cheaper than the X51 and not have any limitations since I can fit up to a 850w power supply and the latest graphic card. There are smaller cases that have 450w ps too.
