I'm looking at building a rackmount server and i like the cases from supermicro, only problem is they're super intel guys.  They say nowhere on their site about if their chassis even support opteron motherboards..   i tried to get them to call me but no luck.  Anyone know?

Thanks,
Nick

Intel uses the standard ATX/mini-ATX style motherboards.  I see no reason for rack mount cases to deviate from this accepted standard.  Any standard mobo should fit, just keep an eye on the power requirements of the devices you install.

If newegg can sell an Opteron motherboard without putting any warnings on it (and they are very good about customer service), that also says a lot about the lack of need to specify such a thing.

Supermicro also has an extensive AMD server product line under the name "A+ Server".  Its link can be found at:  http://www.supermicro.com/aplus/
