It's not possible I'm afriad, the Mini-ITX spec only allows for one expansion slot. The two expansion slots can only be used if you have a Mini-DTX mainboard of which there arent any.

Such a motherboard does not exist. That case won't fit those cards in. The PSU in the case won't be able to cope.

If you are meaning the Asus Rampage II Gene, then that is a micro ATX board - a bit bigger than a mini ITX board.

This board is very nice indeed and can run Core 2 Duo and Quad CPUs. This board has a single PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot, which is pretty much the best you can find for this board size.

There is a mini-itx x58 board?

The Asus Rampage II Gene is a micro ATX board.

There's a fair few mini-ITX boards by Zotac which have 775 sockets and are good for the best of those cpus including the quads.


*edit: I don't believe it. All my thunder stolen while I browsed Zotacs website :(
