    Very cool.

    Got a question about them though. Does uATX mean mATX? Have never been sure about that.

    Yup uATX and mATX both refer to micro ATX :).

    The small m stands for micro and the u is normally used in scientific notation to represent micro (although it should have a long tail on it to).

    uATX boards also have a different component layout (to reduce path of wires) but are identical in size to mATX - see below

    Asus_P5VD2_MX - this is a mATX board

    asus_p5bvm - this is a uATX board note location of connectors for drives/power etc

    Hope that helps

    The ws pro board is still xfire but from some of the posts at xtreme it looks like the best out there so far - less vdrop than p5wdh and higher fsb's.

    Best bit is everyone grumbles about how expensive it is but then say its a workstation board that has some extra features (overclocking) and companies wont hesiate at its price and will just run it at stock. If this is what the board was intended at then why put any overclocking features in it - asus knew loads of overclockers would buy it and it is obviously intended as a overclocking board rather than an actual business style workstation board
