Yes I mean the Quanta. From all the issues I've heard about the Wywinn and lack of firmware updates, I don't know why you'd want one over the Quanta unless it was very cheap.I assume you mean that the quanta is close to $160 .
What I don't get is :
Why do you mention it does not include enclosure nor PSU ?
Also : say I start with something that's cheap like v1's. What do I have to make to make V2's work (i'd throw some 2660's v2)?
Thanks for all the input
There was some discussion earlier about board revisions, I think some of the earliest boards are not compatible with v2 CPUs. Assuming you have a compatible board, just replace the v1 CPUs with v2 and you're done.
I just bought one motherboard. I don't live in the US so shipping overseas is prohibitive, and plus I don't need more than one. You can run it without the enclosure and it's trivial to power them from 12V. I mocked a case out of cardboard which uses a 120mm fan at the front which is much quieter than any 60mm fan you'll buy. I'm redesigning it in CAD to be laser cut. The plan is to have it cut from 3mm plywood with space for 8 hard drives beneath.
