Hey, just kinda wanted to put this out there. Me and my friend are working on getting a bit of a better server than the current one from 2005 that we have now. I just wanted to run this by someone who has a bit better understanding of compatibility than us. Any suggestions for improvement would be greatly obliged :) 

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL-O LGA 1155 Intel C202 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120

Seagate ST31000524AS Barracuda Hard Drive - 1TB, SATA 6Gbps, 7200 RPM, 32MB

NORCO RPC-230 2U Rackmount Server Case 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays - OEM

CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1333C9

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

The things I'm not to sure about are the power supply and ram. We're going to get a better CPU when we can find the money, because this build pretty much hits our total budget alone.

Any suggestions/issues will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks man :D  . I usually only do gaming builds, so I just went with what looked to fit with the case and board.

Yeah - servers are a bit trickier - I've only built like one or two.
