    Okay Well When the new 2011 socket and 7000,600 series gpus are out I'm gonna plan a new build. Here is my question for a mod what would better.

    Big case with massive water cooling and lighter and nice fans
    or
    Small case with water cooling all compacted

    This is like asking what kind of sexual position you prefer; it's ultimately all good, but it depends what you have space and need for.

    If you want to water cool in a small case, you should commit to a build that you are happy with and won't be upgrading any time soon. Tubing complexity in a small space will be a pain in the ass to deal with, especially if all you want to do is add a sound card, for example.

    I'll be going lighter case and nice fans. That's what I did with my X58 build. Prior to that I was big case and water cooling, and even then upgrading and maintaining it was a pain. In a small case, once built, that's pretty much it, and even a light upgrade means draining the loop, rebuilding, or even redesigning.

    Midi ATX case and decent air is my choice.

    It still remains to be seen whether SB-E comes with water cooling as standard though, as some articles suggest it does.

    Micro ATX, Pook? Our GENE will be out mid-Dec. I've not seen the specs yet though - should be available internally end of next week.
