The OEM market rarely does :/ generally these things go through a group / alliance and have established standards. It's why companies like shuttle are self-reliant for their products because they don't conform to design spec.

If I'm getting your point you would prefer all the cable ports out of the side instead of the front of them right? :/ for most companies it would push the wires against the sidepanel and obstruct them with a support rail.

It's one of those annoying things where it promotes better things but getting the masses to adopt it would be like pulling teeth.

yeah i can understand that. its a pity. it would be such a great idea.

just a quick side question though, apart from AMD motherboards supporting AM2 up to AM3, are the mobos with support for more than one type of cpu? i mean, is it possible to have a socket 1336 support a 775 and/or AM2 if the right pins and layouts were available?

It seems like we would need to find a chipset that would be generic enough to support both processors. The ASRock 939Dual supported the AM2 with very few structural changes from what I understand.

Unfortunately ASRock has given up the field from what I can tell

Not only the sockets are vastly different, but there are also technical reasons why this is not possible.

1366 use QPI
775 = FSB
AM2/+/3 = HT

Then you have different implementations of memory controllers... etc

So it's not going to happen

its a pity this stuff isnt standardised. i mean, imagine how much simple it would be for picking out hardware.

my god weve drifted way off topic.

AsRock Used to manufacture a motherboard that supported both Intel and AMD CPU's. (I believe it might of been two versions from one company) I can't remember exactly, but there were two sockets on one board.

well what i had in mind was just merging all the sockets into one, even if that means you have different sized squares all in one...if that makes sense.

meh, w/e. if it doesnt exist, it doesnt exist.
