each daughter board will handle 2 thermocouples I personally would convert the Bed to a know Thermistor such as http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Modular-Screw-on-M3-Stud-Metal-Thermistor-for-Reprap-Prusa-3D-Printer-Hot-End-/221892120007?hash=item33a9cd0dc7  or one of E3D's semitec 104 thermistors  there are lots of options there and stick with the Hotend Thermocouples



Ha!  I didn't think of only updating the Heat Bed to Termistor and only use a single daughter board for the incumbent hot end Thermocouples!  :slap:   Brilliant!  Ta!  :beer2:     

That'll save a few quid...

Thinking that'll be the upgrade I'll go for first.  And a 24v upgrade if I can make it all work together - or at least a much higher wattage 12v supply than the one it shipped with.

24 Volt all the way Danny board will handle it easily (I run mine on 24 Volt as well)  don't forget to do that you will need to swap out the hotend Heaters and the fans to 24V as well

The Board can handle upto 15Amps on the Bed heater circuit as well.

If you are thinking of swapping the Bed then a piece of Ecocast Ally with a silicon heater under it is the way to go.
