Supermicro Motherboard MBD-X11SSL-F-O
I am in process of building new pfsense firewall. I had purchased Supermicro Motherboard MBD-X11SSL-F-O on accident. I am looking on recommendation of cpu for the motherboard. I see that E3-1235L V5 will work well with this motherboard. I wonder if there other recommendation for cpu. I have 1000/40 comcast internet I want to use nat and traffic shaping, and maybe add intrusion detection. I have bought intel dual port gigabit network card as well .
Xeon E3's are great processors to have. A bit of overkill for a home network but might serve you well for IDS/IPS.
