    Apparently Umart in Sydney will have this board soon. The are taking pre-orders and its $A270 (vs. $A205 for the VRXP).

    Now, if this arrives in Oz shops before Epox 8K5A2+ I'll be a little upset :(

    The Epox WILL be available here won't it or will they just skip it and release the KT400 boards instead??
