    Aaaahhhh..... well I'm sure glad you pointed that out. I am a few weeks away from making the server change, but I would still likely be going with 9.4 for now. I'm not sure if it would be advisable to go with 10 at this point in a production environment, given the beta status.

    Methinks I will adjust to the 1155 and Ivy Bridge.

    Thanks!

    Ivy Bridge is hit and miss as well, but I've been able to make them work.

    Wow, so is it recommended to go with an even older technology like Sandy Bridge then? Perhaps my 6 year old Core2Duo box I am using is looking better all the time.

    Yes, Sandy Bridge and older works very consistently. Ivy Bridge DOES WORK, but sometimes you have to tinker with the IDE / AHCI settings to get the controllers to crank up. Also, sometimes Intel Gigabit interfaces actually need different drivers, and a card might work on a Sandy Bridge stock, but not on the Ivy Bridge without a driver upgrade.

    It's some whacky stuff! But that's why I build appliances, because building this stuff yourself is a giant pain, and even I get frustrated with the motherboard of the month testing that goes into self building a good system. Things will get much easier with 10.0, but with time it will get hard again. That's the name of the game!
