Many people have been asking what kind of build qualifies for this group.
I'll quote my OP:

This leaves some flexibility into the requirements, but I'd clarify them as:
- No ATX cases. Just no. Unless it has some wildly compact design, or something relevant to actual SFF work.
- No integrated graphics. Cards should preferably be flagship-class.
- More than 2 cores. If it's a dual core, it ought to be very well clocked, or under water to be relevant.
- If it's a single core, I better be able to smell your mosfets burning from my porch, and I want to hear Al Gore weeping when he learns of your vcore.
But don't feel excluded. We can all learn something from any build. Whether it's an Atom board that fits in a DIN slot, or an ATX case with 4 video cards and 10 hard drives, everyone can contribute.
Thanks, and great work so far everyone.
