If you look at the pics, its an ASUS board. They also show a **** XION 800W PSU and it only has the stock HSF on there. For the price yer payin there, I certainly wouldnt feel good about the PSU and I would hope that they would atleast throw a nice HSF on there because if yer gonna spend that cash, you should atleast try and OC it a little. Sure you can replase the HSF, but if they are going to build my CPU, id rather not have to take it all apart. Wire management looked shotty too.
Funny, official release isn't until Monday, correct?
Anybody spot any Shanghai's for sale on Newegg yet? They were supposedly released already.
I think you will Shanghai single units later, maybe late this month, in retailers. Most are being used by vendors like Dell, HP, Sun, etc. to make servers. I looked at different retailers and did not see Shanghai for sale, but that is normal, as OEMs will be first in line.
Look again, around the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 24) and see if there are any Shanghai CPUs available at retail sites.
