I admit I haven't looked very hard, but I have run into lots of conflicting numbers. Does anyone know what the Pi draws off the wall in server context (ie no GPU use) both at idle w/the phy on and running full bore both cpu & nic.

I really wish there was a market in budget targeted whitebox style home server arm boards. Some sort of format standard ala mitx but with 1 or 2 core 1ghz+ socs, and mix and match one or two sodims, 1gbe, msata/mpcie, usb or sata and i could envision a pretty popular ecosystem. Hell, spec it to fit a set of 3.5" disk mount holes, there's already tons of cheap cases for those everywhere.
