The PSU won't work with this Mobo, Here's the PSU that comes with that Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And this is what you need
1 x PSU Connector 24-pin SSI power connector + 8-pin SSI 12V + 8-pin SSI 12V power connector

That's one 24 Pin Connector, and 2 x 8 Pin Connectors....

I will be using this to host a website from home which receives a fair amount of traffic,

Trouble finding the new Opteron 16core and mobos in the UK for some reason ?

Strange why would they sell a PSU with a server case that does not support a server mobo ?

Makes me just want to go FX8150 for simplicitys sake.

They always do that, I just had another OP who'd gone and bought everything really pretty much expensive stuff, Intel Xeon Processors and the works, and finally he has reached , or was made to understand that the Mobo and those Processors aren't compatible......
The server world is a little bit tricky but works pretty well once you get the whole thing going.
