    For everyone to note:

    This unit doesnt come with inbuild Sound. PCI Sound card should be used.
    I wonder if its possible to use PCI riser extension cards on this units.

    I believe that a sound card is included (but not part of the Motherboard. Most sound card are pretty small but all the same I think a riser would certainly be the way to go.

    All the same, 3 down seven to go.

    Right now the price is 202.50 for 10 so this is 20.25 each, if its this price or around 25US then im in for 1 maby 2(why 50 when its only around 20 now ?).

    One question though, how is this powered ?
    Does it need a DC-DC unit or can u plug in a AT or ATX powersupply

    If it is the board in the picture, it sorta looks like there is an ESS audio chipset on board. If not, from what the description says, it sounds like it comes with sound card? Either way, it's still a great deal for the price.

    One question for Fosgate or someone else with some electronics engineering knowlege...why only up to p166? If it is a socket 7, should it not be able to go higher? If it does not have the multipliers to go higher than that (2.5 x 66), is it likely that there is some kind of mod to push the performance a bit higher? Possibly just moving around a few surface mount resisters like people did with their I-Openers? I'm pretty ignorant about these things, but can do the soldering if someone tells me what to do.

    Chassis and powersupply are available here. DC Power supply is availible from same, but I think you'd have to call.

    The auction does not state that these are new. I wonder how many hours are on these units and what kind of operating environment they were pulled from. (Maybe pulled from heavily vibrating industrial manufacturing machinery???)

    Still, as long as not DOA, 30-40 bucks might not be a bad deal... (IMO)
