    My next server will be one of these boards:


    and this case:


    That’s a real server CPU (a Xeon), and it handles up to 16GB of ECC DDR3-1600 too.

    I bought one of these machines a few weeks ago. Distributor had a nice deal price wise on these machines (€ 200).
    I stuck 8GB ram in it, it’s running WHS2011. I’ve installed virtual box on it to run a few vm’s. Though it is suffering with my exchange 2013 test machine :). Bottle neck is the cpu though, not the memory.

    But I’m ok with a slow exchange vm, after all this is a test machine. Not production.

    I’ve always been a fan of these boxes. They make for a nice no nonsense server for small offices. If only they had these machines with redundant power supplies and a raid 5 controller 🙂

    I’ve seen some others http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3640-ram-has-anyone-tried-using-a-2×8-kit-with-the-n40l/page__st__20#entry41192 who got it to work.

    The QuickSpecs also say only 2TB drives max but I’m running 5 3TB drives in my MicroServer.
