64bit Moboard for PowerEdge 2600?

Posted on 2010-01-08

I am trying to upgrade a PowerEdge 2600 server I have which I use for my personal training server. It is a very nice server, in great shape. But it is dated now with a 32bit Motherboard.  I am wondering if anyone had found a 64bit board that will fit.  It does not have to be a server board and I would prefer that it is not do to the cost.  I am about to build a new server for virtualization testing, study and so forth and really would like to use this box, it is rock solid with good air flow. I can't tell just how proprietary this case it in terms of taking a standard ATX MOBO or not. Cases are not that expensive but again I like this rock solid server and hate to toss it.

    Both the case and motherboard are proprietary to the point you won't find another motherboard that will fit in the case. Sorry.

    With a rating of Wizard I will accept that answer. Thanks for the help. Too bad we are wasting so much in our industry.  This is not like it couldn't have been forseen.  I was hoping that it was a modification of an extended ATX Intel board. Well off to ebay it is then...
