Curious. This would of made sense with 65nm Quads, but now they are doing it for "future" 45nm Quads? Deliberately mis-leading marketing, obivously no support for "next-generation" Nehalem on those boards.

Aren't all those platforms for AMD?

I was thinking this too, the 140W number is for the next Phenom X4 CPU

Ah, makes a bit more sense then. ;)

Thought ASUS was also doing this with their Intel boards... P5Q3 has 16 chokes on it.
