Options for a home server mobo Tags: Motherboards Power Servers Product Last response: October 19, 2009 6:59 AM in Motherboards Share vibe October 14, 2009 7:39:19 PM Hi all, having trouble finding options for this, Looking at building a "silent as possible" AD server for home use. Will also run a few light apps I'm thinking an AMD Athlon X2 3800+ 2.0Ghz CPU because of it's low power draw but reasonable processing power. I'll be making my own SSD using SDHC cards Just cant find a suitable mobo, desirables are... Gigabit LAN (2 would be evenbetter but not needed) low power need / heat output 4 or more memory slots cheap as it's a server, dont care about USB, sound, video outputs Not that it probably makes much difference but, server will be rack mounted in a 4U case. Oh, and any input on low noise output CPU coolers will be we'll received.

Given that I have spare SDHC cards a setup cost of £10 makes this the idea option for me. Yes AM2 not 939, please correct me if I'm wrong but I see no bonus for a 939 setup over AM2 for my requirments. V Shadow703793 a b V Motherboard October 16, 2009 1:12:28 AM ^No. It's just that 939 is dead, and I was going to recommend you upgrade to AM2 if you did have a 939. As for motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $65 after MIR Comes with RAID,etc. But only got one Ethernet. vibe October 19, 2009 6:59:02 AM Thanks for the link, this was one of the ones I was looking at.
