I ran into a bunch of problems using a bargain basement board for my rack server early this year and it was suggested that I try a SuperMicro instead because of the OS compatibility with Server 2012R2.
Not too great. Many problems but mainly with the raid.
Amazon is about to deliver an Asus Z97-A ATX that seems to suport everthing I need but I have a RocketRaid 2640X4 card in my hand.
Real RAID right? SAS RAID?
Anyway which is better: Onboard Z97-A RAID or RocketRAID.
Config will be a 3TB RAID 10 using 4 WD drives
