http://www.directron.com/sx38p2pro.html Don't know if anyone else has posted about this yet but it should be nice to have a small formfactor X38 based system. Heres a couple of links with more info http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?op...=3546&Itemid=1 , http://www.pcmag.co.uk/personal-comp...tle-sx38p2-pro . Always enjoy new tech thats innovative, and with pci/e, crossfire and penryn support its pretty good. I would say cons are DDR2 only and still no SLI for Intel based boards. Also can only support single slot cooler cards for CF. At around $500 its priced kinda high but with Q6600 prices dropping and DDR2 ultra cheap it should make a pretty decent base for a Lan build.

Edit: I guess it will need a bios update for penryn chips. Kinda odd since I thought X38 boards supported them out of the box for the most part.
