    Hi! i am currently waiting for the unreleased series of Xeon Entry and wanting to build a gameserver friendly box with high singlethread perf.

    is there any recommendations on motherboards? i was thinking maybe ASUS WS series. but there is also supermicro which just got a great rep overall. the new Asus WS IPMI SW looks very nice (STH review). is the supermicro series that updated by now? i just want to avoid Java at all cost when it comes to Webui

    Yes i know nothing is released yet. but planning ahead mainly! :)

    These are going to be Socket 1151 - so that motherboard you've linked to will not run these new chips.

    These may well require new motherboards and not be able to be supported on current v5/v6 capable 1151 boards (just like the CFL core series CPUs)

    You'll have to wait and see I think!

    My problem is that I always want to put more RAM than the CPUs can handle
