LGA 1366 Motherboard recommendation for vSphere 6.x


I'd like to replace a motherboard I've been running with a single Xeon processor in a LGA 1366 form factor with a 2 CPU model supporting up to 96 gig of memory.  I already have an investment in memory and Xeon processors so am just looking for a m/b for this project.  Can anyone suggest one that is available on the used market for this purpose?

This will go into a full tower case, not a rackmount.

After looking at the different options, decided just to buy the server itself new.  The hardware requirements keep getting tighter and tighter and I can waste way too much $ and especially time.  Supermicro it is.

Thanks, Andrew.
