    WTB-US(-E): Motherboard with Xeon D-1541, D-1587 or D-2146NT / D-2183IT

    Hey there, I am currently looking to get a new home NAS together with the potential to run a very few, lightweight VMs on it as well. I am currently ping-ponging a bit back and forth between what I want and what I need (a xeon-d 1541 would probably/realistically be good enough) but if someone...

    I have an Supermicro X10SRL-F and whenever I try to boot with my e5-2680v4 it starts up and then randomly during the boot process turns off. It happens at random points during the boot process.
