workstation I am thinking of the mc62-g40. on the server side check out the BSD forum
for the workstation choice. i love the fact onboard I have raid 5 plus options of 3x slimsas options. server side will be an extension of the workstation. I want both to be as one. basic tools that integrate well with each other.
One PSA I’ve been told about that specific board (and really most high-power server boards) - if you’re maxing out the CPU TDP support, be very careful with getting airflow across the VRM heatsinks. If it’s not in a server chassis with massive amounts of front-to-back airflow, they can get extremely hot very quickly unless you specifically have something getting air across them.
Yup. Aware of airflow. Thanks for the heads up. There are some commercial noctua fans that seem to spin up pretty good. I think 3000 to 4000 if i remember correctly. Mught pick up about 5 of them. To for the top, two for the front and 1 in the back.
