    I build them all the time for my friends as HTPC and to build a PC with a small footprint. Most of the people I build them for will never even open the case once its built so no question of them ever upgrading them.

    I see you are thinking about the new Asus release, the Matx rampage. I like it, everything is getting smaller but that doesn't mean that our horsepower needs are shrinking. I am currentl;y building a Media Center and would love a Matx for it, but I will just have to settle for the Bloodrage, lol, I think it's a good idea...

    I LAN far too much, so I'd love to see mATX boards that don't require you to accept a reduction in functionality or OC ability.

    viper, no, actually we were thinking about this before, when dfi anounced their x58 matx... actually even before that...
    but so far we always decided against it since we werent sure if there is really demand for it, and that litle demand there is, will most likely be taken by dfi...
    but i will forward the results of this poll to my colleagues and we will see
