    ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 LGA 2011-v3 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    ok good to know, one more question. I see it lists DDR4 as "DDR4 2400/ 2133", I have access to some DDR4 2666 by a friend, will that not work with this board, or are there limitations to using it?

    Windows 2012 Server option question

    Im pretty ignorant at all this so this is a big learning lesson for me trying to figure all this out. Given that, with the machines Im running now, specs listed in first post, since its a 1 cpu socket system, why does the eval let me run a good number of VMs if it's supposed to be limited to...
