    That was the other option, though the 1245 should have a little bit more performance. I guess it all depends on pricing.

    Just checked and E3-1230v2 is now listed !!!! 173, got to agree, I can't see E3-1245 being worthwhile now.

    no USB3 front panel
    cost - might as well get a cheap H77 / Z77
    Seems I was mistaken, there is a usb3 f/p connector (hiding in the detailed descriptions)

    See above - usb3 is provided anyway

    Now then Aria - any chance you will be getting the E3-1245 ??? having integrated graphics will save having to buy a basic video card.

    Looks like it might do, 4 DIMM slots and support up to 32GB RAM. Only one SATA 6Gb which might limit future expansion but the rest looks OK and according to MSI site has official support for Xeon E3-1230v2 support with appropriate BIOS level.

    Edited to add a thanks.

    Yes to hyperthreading. Its basically a 3.3GHz i7-3770 without the integrated video.

    Its basically the i7 3770 without the graphical die. It runs cooler and has a lower power consumption too!
