    Things like this make me feel all tingly inside. Four cores on a single die is just a sinful digital orgy of fun. :big grin:

    Now, if only Asus would make a Micro-ATX version with a single x16 slot (I don't need CrossFire) and an SATA RAID that works right now, instead of in three months, I'd probably cry myself to sleep until I bought one.

    You can still get a small case for that though.

    For a long while, I had my Tyan dual cpu server board sandwiched
    into a mid sized Antec case!
    Of course, I had to take tin snips to the bottom two ide bays.:mamoru:

    This board is standard ATX sized; but standard ATX is too tall to fit in a mATX tower, so it's a no-go. unless I want to cut a hole in the power supply. I'll just have to wait for the folks at Asus to release a respectable mATX workstation board. The only reason they haven't yet is because mATX gets no respect. All that shit that's built onto the board, and they still think you need five or six add-on slots...craziness.

    Well I didn't mean a micro atx case, but there are a lot of pretty small cases
    that you can squeeze a normal atx board into.
    And anyway, I don't like most of the micro atx cases anyway.
    Mainly because of the sideways optical drive bay.

    These cases are mATX and they have normal drive bays. I guess there IS a step down from my CompuCases, eh Jolly?

    That's not a bad case. But I just shopped for a pair of cases for
    computers I'm building for my daughters, and quite

    had that sideways ide bay.
