For anyone interested, my review of the Intel Core i5-2500K and BH67BL motherboard went up on MissingRemote Sunday night.
It was cool playing with the hardware, but the added transcode support (aka QuickSync) added to the platform was really interesting to me and relevant to my other hobby.
I mentioned in the review, but forgot to post something here (until now) - the latest Early Access rev of DTB has QuickSync support built in. I still need to sort some stuff out, but the results have been very promising (i.e. very similar to what I'm seeing with MediaConverter 7). Hopefully with the review out of the way, I'll have more time to play with this feature and get it all working right.
