It looks like board manufacturers have notice people are looking for a overclock (undervolt for us) options in mATX format.

Gigabyte states there vcore options in there boards and Anandtech review of a Biostar TForce 6100-939 says theres vcore options.

Power consumption wise the 6800 according to xbitlabs consume's 40w at load. 6600GT according to xbitlabs consume's 47w at load. If you unlock the gigabyte passive 6800 to 16x6 pipes the wattage will...
