No problems with the parts, but if it was me, I would not have spent so much on the mobo or CPU, and I def would not have wasted any money to buy whs11.

That money you spent on those things could have gone into purchase a couple more HDDs for storage smile.gif

If you feel like doing a homework assignment, take nefer's advice. If you feel like spending all but an hour setting up everything, which WHS does automatically, then the choice is clear.

As for the hardware, I wouldn't recommend that CPU. You're probably not going to want to overclock your server. A decent amd quad or i3 would be better for the money.

PSU - Corsair TX650M
MoBo - MSI Z77A-g43
CPU - i5 3570 K
OS - WHS 2011 (still deciding if I want to use it, but wanted to buy it and will return it if I decide against it)
RAM - 16GB token from an unused rig. DDR3 1600
HD - 3tb Cool Spins, 320 GB WD Blue for OS

Any reason to not use this as my build?

Drop down to something like a i3-3220 ($130) for the CPU and save $100. If this is just going to be a file server, that's all it will need.

Motherboard wise go with a MSI H77MA-G43 ($70). Z77 boards won't benefit a server since you won't be overclocking.
