Thanks, that's very useful to know.  A couple of questions:

- Can it be made to power up ON?  Or is it always necessary to press a power-on
button after connecting the power, like certain other boards?

- Does it ship with a heatsink on the CPU?  How warm does the CPU package get?

I am considering putting one in a 1U rack case in a warmish server room for a
few years...

Cheers,  Phil.
