    So Yanman,

    Which way are you leaning towards? The ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS or the Asrock board from Mathuisella?

    Neither.. think I need to get the Z9PE-D16. Not sure whether to go for the 4L or not though.

    Trouble is I need 16 dimms... I have 8x8 already but it's just not going to be enough for zfs + several of my home lab vms

    When I posted Amazon.de link for Z9PA-D8 there was one in stock. Similarly when I PMed Homerlovesbeer with Computeruniverse.de link for Z9PE-D8 WS there was one in stock.

    There is high worldwide demand for these dual socket 2011 motherboards and supply is erratic. When something is ordered on demand with an approx. delivery time of 1-2 or 3-4 weeks this is only a best current estimate. It may be longer than this. In some cases much longer. Please be aware of this if considering ordering from Computeruniverse.de or anywhere else.

    If I end up ordering I won't be too pressed for time. I still have my Lenovo D30 board...

    I'm still trying to work out if I can squeeze it into my case but I don't see how without serious mods (or no drive cages)

    When I checked the Computeruniverse.de link for the Asus Z9PE-D8 WS this morning there was one in stock again.

    Gone by lunch today.
    I'm thinking about buying another board now just in case I build another PC for the other half. If I don't use it I'll have no issues reselling it.

    Don't faff about deciding for too long Yanman. These boards are discontinued so you never know when stock simply dries up completely.

    I have a plan.... :Pirate:

    Might try and keep my Lenovo D30 board.. and mod my Enthoo Pro to add another 20mm width between the mobo plate and the drive cages =D

    This project is really starting to get legs...

    Did you use a fan controller, or does the S2600CP motherboard fan control allow for quiet operation?

    It sounds, painful...

    I have both the Z9PE-D8-WS and the Z9PA-D8...

    the Z9PE is installed in a Enthoo deluxe..

    A pair of Noctua U9DB SE2 will fit on the Z9PA-D8, if one of the four fans is removed..

    I suggest you ditch the Lenovo board.. its going to give you grief.. now and when you try to flog it off later due to the size..

    Even the E-ATX boards.. are painful. as it is..

    Whatever I do I need 16 DIMMs so if I changed boards it'd be the ASUS Z9PE-D16

    i have my x79 deluxe in one of these. Always eying of a dual socket board, but pc is only a home file server/spare gaming pc.

    https://www.pccasegear.com/products/31819/thermaltake-core-x9-e-atx-cube-chassis-snow-edition

    cold storing movies/tv series and important documents, doesnt exactly need 16 cores, although the ECC would be handy. But apparently some ECC works with the deluxe, so maybe will venture into a single 2670 to replace the 3820.

    Also got a Caselabs Mercury S8, and it looks small next to the TT Core (TT core supports 2 x 480mm rads in the top!). Also the TT is very heavy being steel (love Clabs for being Aluminium). Other than that not a bad effort from TT.

    trying to find a photo i tool 2 weeks ago, have the TT Core, CLabs S5 and Clabs S8 all lined up next to each other, and the Core makes the CLabs look small!

    EDIT, heres the pic, in order, TT Core 9 (E-ATX), Caselabs Mercury S5 (M-ATX) and Caselabs Mercury S8 (E-ATX)
