I want to build a server with a hardware raid controller and use a CPU E5-1650 v2@ 3.50 GHz to run Windows Server 2012 or 2016. Which Supermicro mobo would you guys recommend and which raid controller card would you recommend? Also, what size harddrive image to build? We will be moving 3 servers onto this machine, virtualized. One server is DC and file server, a second server is SQL server and a third server is web server. All three of those to go onto this new build. Currently the drive on the DC C drive is sized at 357GB and has 124GB free space. We also have a shared drive sized at 356GB and it has 241GB free space.
