Well I've absorbed several of the reviews floating around & the Core i3-530 looks like a winner!
I'm a little concerned about this though:
I might have to get the Intel board....
I'd prefer to get the fancy gigabyte, or maybe a Q57-based one.
Tis a shame idle power wasn't also dramatically improved.
It would prolly be running all the time as a front-end.
(although often in suspend mode)
Which makes me wonder....
Could I power a clarkdale-based system on a sub-ATX PSU?
