So I have planned to build a new super quiet white box sever for some time, waiting for epyc2. I have grown weary of the hum of second hand 2u enterprise gear. I thought I would treat myself with a gratuitously overspecced new server that I have no need for, mmm
After waiting forever, seems the wait continues with the mobo choices so limiting. I don’t need gen 4, but it does seem wrong not to at least have the choice.
Perhaps my web search skills have missed one , the new gigabyte board looks interesting but is not on sale yet. Tyan would be fine if you want a gazillion minisas ports.
Anyone want to add some perspectives, perhaps even a mobo link
Ill keep a lookout but I think wendell and a few others are more up to date in the enterprise section of hardware
Hmmm thread archaeology, but I too am in the market to replace my old dual CPU machines (both old circa 2002 died recently) with a dual Epyc custom build. I’ve found a couple of motherboards Supermicro and Tyan that would suite me, but the Supermicro only supports DDR4 2666. The Tyan (S8253GM2NE) looks like a perfect fit, but I can’t find anyplace in Canada or even NA that sells it online!. Anyone have any suggestions on a vendor for this board?
The Supermicro boards have a newer revision that supports DDR4 3200: https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/motherboard/H11DSi-NT
That said, availability for dual socket Epyc boards in the retail channel is very limited. This looks like a suitable board assuming the listing is correct:
please don’t bump old threads
make a new one
