Ohhh... sportin' the new 5400 series of chipsets along with the 5400 Xeons. (God I hate your naming scheme Intel ;))

Should mean that Tyan and Supermicro should be putting out their boards shortly! For those of us who roll our own.

1200 is starting price, which is the lowest specs. Having 128gb of memory would atleast reach over 18K!

Yeah, read source too. Still an interesting system, but why 667MHz? Could it be ECC?

Memory prices on FB-DIMM are OK. Not the cheapest memory, of course, but still OK:

http://geizhals.at/deutschland/a293213.html

REMEMBER if you get a Xeon i5400 series mainboard to populate the board with FOUR memory sticks for twice the bandwidth. The i5400 series is QUAD channel RAM. It's worth thinking about even if you *only* socket 1 Xeon rather than 2 Xeons. Cannot match the bandwidth of quad channel with and regular DDR2/3 system. A single chip s771 Xeon, set up as quad channel FB-DIMM memory, Quad-core Xeon, on an i5400, will PWN any "consumer-enthusiast" s775 Core Quad system on dual channel DDR2.
