Hardware Feedback on new WRF Build

Post by b.glynn » Fri Oct 01, 2010 2:01 pm

Hello,

I am assembling a build for my student organization that will be used primarily for running wrf-ems.
I am not to familiar with what architecture's are supported and was hoping I could post them here and get some feedback about compatibility:

Motherboard:
TYAN S8230GM4NR-DL
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813151222

Or
ASUS KGPE-D16
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131643

(no onboard raid support)

Processor:
2x AMD Opteron 6128
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819105266

Memory:
4x Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820134977


PS:
Antec TPQ-1200 1200W Continuous Powe
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... -_-Product

The rest is nuts and bolts. For the price I believe the Opterons are the best value.

Any input is greatly appreciated.
