Very disappointing email from Iwill. They answered my request about the power requirements for the Iwill Granite Bay board, which came from a parallel thread....P4GB:

Anyone that has seen the specs for Granite Bay, will understand that the chipset is a derivation of the server chipset. The actual name of the chipset is E7205. And does resemble E7500.

It uses the EPS 12V power supply that all the new Dual Xeon server boards use. The connectors are 24 + 8, and are not ATX 12V for regular P4. This is a true Workstation class performance board.

BUMMER!:(

Ok, move over Iwill here comes Gigabyte Granite bay!:D

I found out today that the WTX form factor for PS and boards has been revamped to a more universal mode called EPS. Supposedly, Intel revised their initial WTX specs to make the PS and boards more cost effective. So a 520W EPS PS actually costs $88 from Directron.com (model EPSTT-520SS). This model includes a 24 pin to 20 pin adapter. Even AMD will eventually transition to these specs. And $88 for a 520W PS is not bad (3 cooling fans with 3 speeds)! It even has an adjustable 5/12V internal pot.
