    The only issue with the x9/x10 gen is that they are "W" and not "U" type boards. So I don't believe they line up with the expansion slots.

    If true, that's unfortunate then. The chassis would be perfect (redundant PSU, enough expansion slots, 2.5" sleds) but being limited to X8 boards really limits you. I assume @Patrick talking about swapping a Xeon D board in was using the first chassis (since it support regular m-ATX/ATX).

    Looks like the best board for the second server with the extra expansion slots (proprietary form factor) would be X8DTU-6TF+-LR (has 2x10G SPF+, LSI 2108 onboard) but really no point trying to find that when you have the extra expansion slots.

    Sorry, I didn't actually read the whole thread, I just saw the requirements list and thought for sure I had seen a board that met them. :oops::rolleyes:

    I'll just back slowly away into the shadows now...

    Yeah I was looking at this chassis combo then dropping in a x9drw-3f I picked up but it didn't seem to line up from what I could tell so got stuck buying a 300 dollar non resident case for it. Still makes one hell of an esxi server though

    I am planning to secure the ssd temporarily till I find the compatible brackets. May be I'm not using correct search words. I didn't see any

    I picked up a CSE-815TQ-600WB off of eBay for it. It's a great little case gives 2 full height expansion.

    Anyone have the part number for the 2.5" hard drive trays? $7/each seems a bit steep, when you want 8 of them.

    EDIT: Disregard. Found the part # in the manual. MCP-220-00047-0B if anyone needs it.

    Has anyone tried other vendors hard drive trays that worked?

    I have 8 trays from mine that I decommissioned. They're yours for $40 if you want them.
