Hello bnborg, thanks for replying.
hadn't considered the E-350, because, well, didn't really know they existed. Heard about the Fusion processors of course, but didn't think they were for sale already.
Just took a look at a few boards, but I'm afraid that's not going to work for me. I kinda need 6 sata ports and I can't seem to find a board with more than 5. Aiming for 1 bootdrive and 5 drives in raidz2. A board like that would work fine for something else I'm thinking of, so I'll keep 'em in mind anyway
I'll take a look at the common areas of the A50 and 870 chipsets tomorrow, might just go for it then if they look similar enough.
