@Stmpngrnd, Lol, that makes me roll on the floor laughing. This looks absolutely the worst integration idea I've ever seen!

"worst ever...LOL what does a typical DIY setup look like with a power distribution board for up to an X8 config and 3 accessory  voltage regulators?

It is a market they are trying to create, not one that actually exists.
