Intel MB S1200KPR fit fine in Fractal Node 304?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys... new here and just came across the Fractal Node 304 case which i really like.
Trying to build a pretty good small form factor server using the E3-1225 V2 Xeon processor with the
S1200KPR motherboard and wondering if it will fit and look ok on the back of the Node 304 case?
I'm starting to think maybe not. This is not for gaming or anything .. more for business stuff and VMWare instances.

Thanks..

They're both mini ITX, so yes, it will fit just fine.

Thanks.. just looked like the pictures on the web of the motherboard that there would be some space/gaps or something since it didn't look like it filled the entire space on back of case.

Also was wondering maybe if an i5-4570 Haswell might be just as good as the Xeon above. looking to push about 200Mbps of throughput to it for video surveillance as well.

Are you planning on adding a discrete GPU as well?

nope.. just onboard video.. will rely on another machine with graphics card to connect to this new server.

Then you'll want to go with the i5. That Xeon is basically the same chip as the 3770 with no onboard video.

But the Xeons that end with 5 instead of 0 do have onboard gpus.
And he said 1225 V2, so I guess it should work.
