Post i7 setup
Good Day,

Could someone recommend a motherboard with the following criteria

1. onboard nic --> works
2. onboard raid controller --> works
3. support i7 CPU
4. support 16GB RAM

I am planning to use it for disaster recovery with the intention of using vmware converter to convert existing server into vmware image and keep them on this ESXi box.

Please note that I might have problem to obtain Tyan/Supermicro motherboard here but any other brand is not an issue

Hi,

i use the reference Board from Intel DX58SO. This works good, but with i7 CPU you can only use 4 CPUs with the free version.

Remember that ESXi do not support software raid.
As I understand most onboard RAID is software only.
