I myself have never been inclined to use a non-server board for anything
other than a workstation. This system will be in the background however
it will be a workhorse needing to be alive at any and all times around
the clock. It does not have to be a powerful processor, just solid. The
case should have removable cooling fans and dual power supplies each
attached to a separate ups.
Just my preference. a few hundred dollars can save thousands later.

Hope everyone is doing well!

So been side-tracked a bit dealing with other technology issues in our
new building (neither the server room nor the computer lab had any
cooling system! That could have been very bad!) but I'm back to
thinking about the new LTSP server.  Thanks to everyone's feedback
pretty well all aspects of the server are clear except just needing to
decide on the motherboard.  The I.T. shop we deal with recommended 3
motherboards to choose from.  I've included a link to newegg.com for
each item for the specifications. Cost-wise they're all revolving
around each other so it's not a determining factor.

1) ASUS P6X58D-E


3) Intel BOXDX58SO2

Any preference / feedback?

Other than that it's nearly all set!

Thanks very much!
