Motherboard recommendations for Media Server/Main rig

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
needed to:
Dual Monitor(cheap GPU dual DVI)(8x)
8port RAID card(8x)
dual-link Intel NIC(4x)

Looking for a 24/7 build,
Ive looked at Intel P67 and Tyan and Supermicro C202,204,206 chipsets.

the only pcie lay out that fits my needs is the Intel P67 motherboard.

I don't want EVGA,MSI,Gigabyte, I had poor luck with those boards holding up past a yr.

Im wanting as I said a 24/7 motherboard that can handle it.

You've eliminated Majority of the TOP brands,

I have a evga x58 classified mobo and it's been up and running continuously for almost 2 years, Along with the x58 MSI board.

It looks like you are only leaving in like Asus and ASrock brands.

anyways, here you go: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131701

@OP

For reliable boards, I'd say Supermicro, Tyan and ASUS. Need more info though: form factor? How many slots? How many CPUs? Will it be overclocked?

As a starting point, how about one of these?
