    ASUS Z87 Maximus VI Impact ITX Motherboard

    I would like to know this too, if anyone knows. There are HDMI --> DVI-D (Dual Link) cables, but would the signal be appropriate to drive a 30" monitor?

    Trouble accessing IPMI after pfSense boot

    I'm having the same issue, ever get it figured out? I have the X7SPA-HF-D525, which is essentially the same board.

    All-In-One ESXi Microserver (mITX) Build - Need Feedback/Comments

    I have realized by watching some videos and researching that there is probably no way I'm going to fit 4 drives in the m350 case. I went ahead and ordered the case so I can start preparing. Likely the max will be 2 drives, so that will be the 256gb SSDs in RAID 1. Will likely just do a...

    Awesome. So ESXi shouldn't have a problem with onboard RAID 1 for each pair of drives for this server. Do you guys realize how badass this is? That's a lot of power in a very small package. Some would say if they can't have 32gb of RAM then forget it, but for a small business this thing is...

    All-In-One ESXi Microserver (mITX) Build - Need Feedback/Comments

    I've read the manual for the motherboard, and looked in other places but I cannot find the specific RAID chipset. All I can find is: Intel(R) C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller. I have seen where others have posted they are able to do ESXi 5.1 on this board.

    Yeah I wondered about drivers for the OpenUPS board for ESXi. Might prove to be problematic.

    All-In-One ESXi Microserver (mITX) Build - Need Feedback/Comments

    Hello, this is my first post. I am shameless, and a noob, so forgive that please. I want to build a very small and efficient server for my small business to achieve the following: 1. Board is Supermicro X9SPV-LN4F-3QE (fanless embedded core i7), 16g ECC 1333 unbuffered sodimms (yikes!)...
