Its going to be my 1st time to build a server from parts. I'm spearheading a virtualitation initation for our company (SMB). blades/rack servers are over our budget so I'm building from parts making sure that the parts are compatible to VMware ESXi 4.1 / 5. I would like to use a closed loop liquid cooling system from Antec
Parts in mind:
Motherboard - Intel® Server Board S3420GPV
Intel® Xeon® Processor X3480 (3.06 GHz) [Option 1]
Intel® Xeon® Processor X3470 (2.93 GHz) [Option 2]
Cooling System -
Antec Kühler H2O 920
Please let me know what are your thoughts/suggestions about this and if you have better suggestions.
