Why does the image look photoshopped? Looks pretty fake to me. And I've never heard of congatec. Maybe it's true, but I don't see the point of buying i7 without the choice of expansion.

I am wrong or the CPU is a I3 with on CPU video? arrandale I think can't remember all these fuckign name this year. And, what about expansion and utility. You have a killer CPU with...nothing around except for compression VM and dvd burning you can't do nothing. That's a bad idea IMO.

awesome. That would be an awesome board. I don't really see where they intend on putting the 8 pci-e lanes, and it looks like it has a single so-dimm slot :S

It looks like this company specializes in control units. My guess would be that this board is for industrial controls use, not for a general purpose desktop computer use.
