Been waiting for this. I'm interested to see the BIOS on one of these things and this particular boards looks very simple with its design, 4 SATA ports is nice too. Gotta wonder about that tiny fan though...

Interesting, wondering what its price point is going to be. Could make an excellent HTPC.

INurHome, most of those small itx boards that have such big ass heat sinks are designed to run without a fan, some of them include them anyways. That said i dont trust the little dinky fan and on my previous D230 i'd run it either fanless or with a nice 120mm sitting on it, got amazing temps that way.
