The X9SCM has a better configuration for expansion (4 slots) but has less memory. Six of one, half a dozen...
Agreed, you'd just be making one bigger server, not two independent servers - that wouldn't meet your objectives. But on the point of the MB size, if the micro ATX one does all you want (RAM as much as the CPU will allow, and enough PCIe slots) there is no point in worrying about the size.Well I wanted to have 2x independent chassis so the secondary could backup important files on the primary. If I put my mobo in my 826, then do as you said and add a SAS line to my 846, could I accomplish what I want to do? It seems like I would just be making 1 large system instead of 2.
Do note that you need to pay attention to the memory; those boards take registered memory (and an E5-26xx CPU).
UDIMM is unregistered right? Either way thanks for the heads up. Prices are on par for what I was looking to pay. ~$110 per 16GB
