Asus Z10PA-D8 + Refurbished 2680 v3 2.5GHz: Good option?

Recommended Posts

Hi All – I am a (very) new member of the community and home servers altogether.

I aim to build a home server for multiple docker containers and I thought to put the following together:


- Brand-new Asus Z10PA-D8 (£320.–) with:

- 2 x Refurbished Intel Xeon E5-2680 v3 2.5GHz 12-Core (2 x £186.00).


What are your thoughts? Is the motherboard new-ish and adequate enough to handle a futue JBOD attached to it?


Many thanks!
