BTW, if anybody else buys one of these boards, be aware that the included
heatsink backplates are meant for the (not included) 1U fanless heatsinks.
You'll need a pair of these backplates/brackets to use "normal"
Socket940 heatsinks/fans on the board:


I bought two from this seller and they arrived promptly and work just fine.
