Hi all,

I'm search a mobo building a desktop PC mainly for testing servers, running as guests on virtualization. This new box is NOT for production. Neither I'll run overclocking.

OS - mainly Linux

My initial configuration:

CPU
AMD 8-Core FX-8120 3.1GHz

RAM 32G
Corsair Vengeance CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10 DDR3 1600 32G Kit (8Gx4)

Hard drive 1.5T
WD Caviar Black 1502FAEX 1.5TB SATA3/64MB HDD

Motherboard;
ASUS M5A97 Pro AMD 970,DDR3,USB3.0,SATA3 6Gb/s,ATX M/B

Video card;
ASUS DI-A6570G1 HD6570 PCI-E 1G DDR3
http://www.asus.com/Graphics_C...GD3LP/#specifications
(I don't game. I run commands to setup servers. Graphic is NOT important)

LAN
D-Link DGE-528T Gigabit Lan Card [support Low Profile]
DGE-528T

(I need 2 additional NICs for testing)


On Internet searching I found many threads relating to problem of RAM on my selected motherboard. I need 32G RAM.

What will be your suggestion on selecting mobo. MSI? Or any other suggestions. Please advise. TIA

B.R.
