    The Mobo seems to be state of the art - besides the missing onboard dual channel SAS chip.

      It's the one we need a beta tester for :)
      It would be first on my list for a new system board.

      There are addon cards for SAS raid and HBA (no SCSI) but they cost a premium. These cards do not take up any of the normal slots, they use a UIO slot with independant PCI-e bus.

        I was thinking of running it on SATA for a while

        1 x 250GB for system
        1 x 1TB for backup
        4 x 500GB in Raid0 for video
        4GB Ram and more later under 64bit OS

        and later, when Edius 5 is out, I may try Vista 64bit and get the SAS controller with 4x 300GB 15,000rpm drives, they should do around 600mb/sec in Raid0

        I can't see any show stopping specs with that mobo, so I may go ahead and just try my luck, if it fails, then I have a super fast office PC :)

          ouch

          looks like XP or Vista are not supported with this mobo, back to the drawing boards

            You can bet that is untrue. I think they possibly mean that Windows does nto have all the new chipset drivers for the board and that you would simply install from the CD provided.

            I'll investigate.

                Oh, yes I see Mark - SAS HBA is handled via UIO Slot.
                Interesting question concerning OS support !

                  Anton,
                  That is the board I am looking into. However, finding the 3.2 processors are harder than finding the motherboard.
                  I also find it VERY hard to believe that it will not run under at least XP

                    my supplier assures me that XP and Vista are supported and he is now contacting Supermicro to fix their documentation

                    3.2 processors are easy to get here, they are not cheap

                      So you mean the 1600FSB 45-nm model CPU's? Model X5482.

                      Let me know where to get these if you can, cheers.

                        these are the ones and as it turns out, my supplier is having troubles getting them as well

                        he can easily get the 1300FSB E5450 processors, I may go with them if it is impossible to get hold of the X5482 (I gave him another 2 days to look around)

                            wow, the E5450 is not bad after all, I may go with that if the X5482 can't be found

                              Like to have seen the 5462 spec, but it is not there. My other option is way down - the 5150.
                              Makes you wonder, there's a $1K diff in it between the 2 + some extra ram and an 8800 vs a 7300 for that for my next machine.
                              mmmm......
