Hello,


 


My name is David and I’m writing from Spain.


I will need a semi-professional machine to make job-labs in my home with ESXi, my option for motherboard is a Tyan 7002.


I have one provisional configuration, but I still have some doubts about hard components, Is it possible you can help me?


 


Motherboard: Tyan 7002 (S7002GM2NR-LE), link to motherboard manual 


CPU: Intel Xeon E5620 


Memory: 4x4 16GB 1066MHz ECC REG, de Ebay 


Heat sink: Noctua NH-U12P SE2 


Harddisk: 2 x Seagate ST31000528AS 1 TB (Barracuda 7200.12) 


PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower XT 875W (EPS12V 2.91)


Case: Chieftec CA-01B-B-SL (EATX)


 


My doubts are:


1. Are this hard components compatible with the motherboard Tyan 7002? and with ESXi 4.0? I wouldn’t like to have problems with the RAM.


2. Is the PSU appropiate? I select this one with standar EPS12V 2.91, but I’m not sure because the Tyan 7002 needs 24+8+8 pin, and I think PSU has only 24+8 pin.


3. Finally, this motherboard needs case with factor SSI-CEB, my selection is EATX but is quite large, Is the case EATX appropiate?


 


Thanks for your time and best regards,


David.

Hi and welcome !


take a look at http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread.php?t=312830


the Corsair 1000W is better choice than the Thermaltake and you will have the included cables " an 8pin to 2-4pin splitter cable with the board,"


see the comments on the  page regarding the pinning of the Corsair cables for the Corsair CMPSU-1000HX which is actually two 500w power supplies in a single enclosure.


do you have any other mainboards to consider ?


some of this may help & welcome to HH


*** Edit will need to consider the lengths of the Corsair cables as well they seem a bit short from others have mentioned elsewhere and have EATX as well that the  PSU is a bit pricey .

Hi,


Thanks for your response, I just understand that I need a PSU with "2 x 8-pin EPS12V connector" but there are few PSUs with that specifications.


Your recomendation "Corsair CMPSU-1000HX" it's ok, but it's too many expensive.


One suggestion, what you think about this other one SilverStone OP1000 1000W? It's cheaper than other and also has 2 x 8-pin EPS12V connector (550mm)
