Recommendations for Mobo and cpu

  • Morning All,


    Just looking for some recommendations. I'm looking to build a new OMV server with more cores (I only have Lga 1155 4cores) I'm looking for a cpu with 12 cores (2.5Ghz is min) and motherboard combination. Not fused about the case and the PSU at the moment, but here is the kicker I need to keep it under £100 or $100.


    Thabks in advance

    Normally if its in red it's bad!!!


    Machine 1 - Dell OptiPlex 790 - Core i5-2400 3.10GHz - 16GB RAM - OMV5

    Machine 2 - Raspberry PI4 - ARMv7 - 2GB - OMV5

  • tell more about usage case and money you wat to spend :>

    Hey, Sorry no one replied so i forgot about this post so thank you for replying.


    Mainly it will be OMV storage may also install a docker for Nextcloud storage (if there is a easy way of doing it), but also I'm going to making a couple of VM's (Home Assistant, Debian monitoring desktop)


    I want to try and keep the costs low so i am only looking at motherboard & CPU at the moment so looking to keep the costs to £150 ($170)
