    ESX 4.0 Whitebox suggestions?

    kdonofrio Novice

       

      I am looking to build two whiteboxes for esx4.0.  I am looking to use microatx cases/motherboards to save on space.  I find there is a lot of people doing this already, but with different variations of motherboards and processors.  I want the install to work out of the box, preferably using the motherboard built in raid.  I just want plain raid 1.  Below is what i am thinking of using.  Any suggestions would be helpful!
