Server Specs for Colocation

Discussion in 'Server & Community Management' started by CrissIIL, Jan 27, 2015.

  1. Hello,

    I have recently decided to order and collocate two servers to the chicago database, SteadFast.

    Currently the only problem I have is choosing the correct parts, since this is my first time building a server and I am trying to learn the correct steps to doing so.

    I currently have,
    2xIntel Xeon 1271v3 @ 3.6-4.0ghz.
    4xSamsung Pro SSD
    8xKingston 8GB.

    My problem is with the Motherboard and the Chassis.
    I have,
    SUPERMICRO CSE-512L-260B
    and
    ASUS P9D-V ATX

    My actual problem is the sizing.
    I am already aware that the chassis and the motherboard do not fit at 100%, and there is a FC-16P cord that does not have a location on the board.

    Can you guys suggest a compatible/better chassis that will correspond with the motherboard.
    I was looking at the CSE-512L-350B.
