Post MSI P55-GD80 Works fine with ESXi 4.0 and Onboard Raid
Last week we I've succesvolly installed my new home server with a MSI P55-GD80 Motherbord a i7 860 CPU and 16GB of Ramm.

I'm suprised that the onboard raid config also functionate well. I've two 1Tb HDD's with 32mb cache. I've increased the performance verry well unjust to my old system, a asus p5k board and 8GB Ram.

It's a pretty good looking MB as well :). What sort of RAID controller does it have? Any luck with the onboard NICs?

Hi,

This is interesting, please give more details to what works "out of the box". And please give us ESXi version you used and if you had to do some workarounds. Is it stable? The P55 Chipset and iCore CPU's are an interesting platform I think, even though it wasn't created for servers in mind ?

All the best !

Hi

I am looking for a Core i5 platform for a home server. Does the NIC work?

How did you get this motherboard to work what mods did it need?
