    These are 2 Atom boards with 6 sata ports that I know of:

    ZOTAC NM10-DTX
    Super Micro X7SPA-H

    If you are not in a rush, I believe Intel are bringing out, (or have already), a board specifically designe for low power operation servers.
    Otherwise, the Zotac mentioned above works just fine for WHS, (just so long as you don't intend doing transcoding etc on the server).
