Need a reliable 1st Gen i7 Socket G1 mini ITX motherboard, any suggestions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to build a small server for redundancy of some of my home network systems on my main server. I have an Intel i7 620M CPU and I'm finding out the hard way that a G2 socket motherboard for Sandy bridge won't work with it.

Since my go to motherboards, Supermicro or Gigabyte, don't have socket G1 boards, I'm not too familiar with other brands to feel comfortable they will be reliable long term, at least as far as the mini ITX brands I've found.

Could someone recommend a good QM57 (or comparable) chipset mini ITX board to me?

wouldn't this work?

edit:
i think above is way wrong.

Only thing I can seem to find with G1 sockets are laptops.
