ASUS P5E-VM DO or ASUS P5E-VM HDMI? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need an Intel micro-ATX motherboard with 6 or more SATA ports, so I've narrowed it down to the two. Any opinions on which one will be better for WHS (largely from a power savings perspective)

     

    Thanks,

  • The first thing you need to do, is find out which one has Server 2003 drivers available for it. You are going to use this as a server, so having it as stable as is possible should be your first criteria.

    You may want to read this thread P5E-VM HDMI.

    I have no idea on the power saving differences between the two.

    Personally I'm waiting for the p5q-em version to come out.
