Post Need help with picking a Whitebox motherboard not on the HCL
First, thank you for having this forum. This is a great help for the home lab builder. I am working on building out a lab at my house for ESXi so that I can build a test lab for Cisco CUCM and various other VoIP appliances. I have been looking at the ASUS P9X79 Pro board and can't find anyone that says that they have tried this board.

I know that typically it is the network or the storage drivers that are the problem and just wanted to ask the forum if anyone had tried this board. I am only going to get one shot at this purchase since it was hard enough to convince the wife that I needed this. :-)

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Keith

Any drives off of the Marvell or ASMedia chips will most likely be problematic.
Onboard RAID is most likely a no-go.

Best of luck.
