Vmware Dual cpu whitebox

hI there everyone, I noticed that many of you have built your own esx whitebox.  I am wondering if anyone has built a whitebox with dual cpus.  What mob did you use?  Thanks in advance for the help.

To a degree, this is the unofficial "bible" of clone hardware for vmware. This site has an extensive list of hardware that should run with ESX.

I myself recently purchase the HP Proliant ML 115 G5 Quad Core Opteron for £199 from www.serversplus.com.  I've got it running vSphere ESX 4i running from a USB Key that is located inside the server itself.

I thought about building my own whitebox but after speaking to Kiwi Si over at www.techhead.co.uk I decided on the ML115 G5,  if you want a dual core intel box instead of a quad core AMD then check out the HP ML110 G5 at about the same price.

I wrote a post myself on where to get started with your whitebox which may help if you don't want an HP server.  http://www.virtualpro.co.uk/2009/01/17/where-to-start-with-your-vmware-esx-whitebox/

Have fun, www.virtualpro.co.uk

Thanks for these links I will have a look.  I was really hoping to build a whitebox with two cpu in it.  Has anybody used a board with two cpus for esx?

VMWare and dual cpu boxes are supported and do work. Take a look at the link I provided for the mobo you have in mind or buy one from the supported HCL list.
