Looks like the combo is dead, but it's still a pretty good deal.

The interwebs tell me this machine can handle ECC RAM, which may be
desirable for ZFS users... someone in the UK "hacked" the bios to
handle six internal drives but he hasn't responded as far as the bios

And if you want to roll your own,
has some nice similar-scale cases that take a mini-ITX case. I'm also
waiting for some drives to build an Antec ISK-100 with the Intel  D525
board, which (with a pair of usb ethernet adapaters and some velcro)
should make a pretty nice router, andn quiet/low power with SSD or
Sata-to-CF drives. :)
