Looking for new MotherBoard for my Xeon

4 posts in this topic

Trying to put together some ideas. Please Help. O.o

I picked up a Dell T20 with a Intel Xeon E3-1225 V3 at a pretty good price. 

I'd like to find something more robust than what the T20 offers in its stock form.

 

Would likes:

Something that supports my Intel Xeon e3-1225 v3 (Socket LGA1150)

Intel NIC or I could swap in a new one

Support as many SATA ports as possible

Support a couple PCI-E slots for expandabilty 

I currently have a AOC-SAS2LP-MV8 which only supports SATA 2 from what I read, but I'd like to look at updating that too. I need to support at least 10 drives in my current configuration

 

Of course the object would be to make it as unRAID flexible as possible. Lol

Found this Board just trying to decide if its the "right" board.

Looks like it has an Intel controller for 6 of the Sata3 ports and a ASMedia ASM1061 for the remaing 4 Sata2 ports. 

As well Duel NIC with Intel for one and Realtek for the other. Both I believe are 1GB which shouldn't be an issue

DDR3 as well. I wonder how that would effect the prices of ram.

I plan to recycle my existing Cooler Master 590 Case and drives. Just want to step up my Processing power from my Athlon.
