I bought the processor without realizing how difficult buying a motherboard would be.  My case can fit up to an ATX motherboard.  I am in the US.

I bought an ASRock EPC602D8A MB off newegg for my E5-2690v2 Xeon I bought on eBay.  Because it takes Narrow ILM I bought a Noctua NH-D9DX i4 3U.

Got this memory off eBay:

Almost forgot the memory - opps!

None of those motherboards are currently available.  I have been trying to buy a used board off of one of the other forum's I am on but that has been slow.  How is your server with the E5-2650v2?  Mine is getting an upgrade from an i3-4340 because I want to have plex run comskip which is taxing the i3.

On that note I ended up searching ebay for C602 based boards and found a Supermicro ATX board that should work for $165.  Im just waiting on a reply about some specs of it.

Works great.  MBs I don't buy used if I can get one new.  Processors and Memory I have.  Had too many new lemon MBs don't want to get something I can't RMA.  Same idea with hard drives.  Never gotten a bad CPU new or used so I'm ok buying used there.  Mostly the same with memory.
