numbers would vary depending on the mb and cpu ??

	mini-itx comes in c3-500 fanless or c3-800 or c3-1G cpus

	other mini-itx mb can support p4-3G w/ 533FSB

<shameless plug below> 

== *.edu or *.gov entities are encouraged to email us offline

we're working on a 4U chassis that supports 10 mini-itx mb running off
+12v @6A input per blade ( one big whopping 2U power supply is good enuff)
	10 blades per 4U chassis --> 60A @ +12V
	40 blades per 1U rack -----> 600A @ +12v ( not trivial ? )

	each blade can hold 2 disks or 4 disks ( 1.2TB per blade )

- blades can be one mb per blade or 2 mb per blade

	( each fully loaded 4U expected to weigh about 200lbs )

we're looking for beta site for testing that the systems can stay up
and running w/o any problems
	- its our 1st pass of metal ( and probably requires some tweeks )

- please reply offline if you want to arrange some (free) eval time
	- metal work "could" be free
	- you add mb, disk, cpu-if-needed, memory, power supply,

- inexpensive mini-itx mb ( cluster )
	$ 100	mini-itx mb
	$ 120	512MB of memory
	$  60	40GB disk or diskless system ??
	$ ???	marketing/sales/techsupport
