My System Specs

Default

I doubt very much it will mount vertically. But you may get away with it horizontally. There is some clearance for the RAM. I remember on my asus P5KE is was close but it hooked over. 30h6 who did a review with one as supergrover suggested may shed some light on this. Horizontal is not too bad though, I found very little difference in temps in a case that doesnt have top exhaust fan.

The trouble is you'll be bottlenecking the system with a TRUE given what that board can do. You might as well buy a lesser board if your not going to watercool the CPU. You can easily put together a Wc system for around $200 which will work very on a quad (see worklogs).
