How to choose a mate.an host for hyper-v?

Advise the motherboard under the server for virtual machines.

Approximate usage options:
Host type: Windows Server 2008 R2
Virtualization: Hyper-V

Virtual machine: 4 PCs. with Windows Server 2008 R2 are all terminal servers. ~20 users per machine, i.e. only ~70-80 people at a time.
Basic tasks user: 1S, office.

The budget for the entire server ~30-35 thousand.

Solution
Summary of collection:

9710,00 Intel Core i7-3820, 3.60 GHz, 10MB, LGA2011, OEM
1320,00 cooler Zalman CNPS11X Performa, 775/1156/1366/2011 Socket/AM2/AM3/FM1
3960,00 the ATX power supply Corsair TX650M 650W, Active PFC, fan 14 cm, CP-9020039-EU Retail
9730,00 Motherboard ASUS P9X79 PRO, X79, Socket 2011, DDR3, ATX
2510,00 case ZALMAN Z12, MidiTower, ATX, black
13070,00 memory Module for a computer DIMM DDR3, 32GB (4х8ГБ), PC3-12800, 1600MHz, Corsair Vengeance Pro black, CMY32GX3M4A1600C9
-------------
40300,00

In the Assembly, no hard drives, because they already have in stock, therefore, take the more expensive mother, CPU and power supply.
In the end, the budget is exceeded 5 thousand because of the amount of memory that was originally planned to 16GB (7060,00), and the selected 32GB (13070,00).
Although the case with the PSU already there, but it was decided to take new due to the larger CPU cooler and a more powerful PSU.

Maybe something you could find better for the same money, but in General the issue was resolved quite well in my opinion.

A special thank you for the tip with the processor and its price/speed cpubenchmark.net

Update: Officially, this motherboard is not supported on windows server 2008 r2. Under it, officially there are no drivers, in particular network card.
However, in the Internet there are solutions that allow a simple "copy-paste" to modify inf and network driver is installed perfectly.
Memory is too expensive. 32 gig probably can be bought for 8-9 thousand. overclocking is not necessary, enough normal - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:38
not to forget the UPS - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:41
Housing best Gmc H-100 - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:44
A separate line of memory and any of the three Kingston, Corsair, Crucial 8Gb 1600MHz with timings of CL9 costs around 360.00 3 x 4 = 13440.00. We could get cheaper with time at 10 or 11, then 2600-3120х4= over the bar. The difference is small ~600-700 RUB. - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:47
UPS is already there, and the Gmc H-100 we are nowhere, and wait a long time - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:50
And I think the Gmc H-100 with such a cooler will narrow. - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:53
will go back to back, maybe half an inch to cover will remain. Zalman it is not exactly wider. if not - you can take a Deepcool Gammax 200/300/400, he will enter - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:56

for the money, only desktop. take ASUS P8H77V-LE, the processor under it i5 or i7 processor, 4x8 operatives.
What about the Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 ? I was tempted a number ckjnjd for memory and 6 sata3 - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:40
*slots - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:43
first, locate processor under its socket and see how much it costs - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:46
and found and watched the price is 19.5 K total mother+percents = 25, left another 10 on the memory. The housing and screws are already there. - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:49
But, Yes, percent expensive. - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:52
how long do you have to give if you say CPA? - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:55
always get the system out of shit and sticks, because it will be more maintainable. bear in mind that the disks will start using some time to breathe, and they need to be changed. plan your budget wisely. - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 01:58
by the way, for 10 rubles, you can take only 32 gig - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:01
and why would she suddenly start to die? And even if you die, then quickly and will be under warranty. Drives die and that's fine. They are in the plans and not in this budget. - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:04
about memory and 10K RUB: it is clear and so, so 8 slots is a to development. Now all the system does on a GA-P55A-UD3 spinning 4th year.. due to the growth of users with scheduled 30 to 70-80 people are not comfortable has become, but not critical. - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:07
and what percent for this nurse, what model? - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:10
Now Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 660 @ 3.33 GHz. Now the system copes mostly by memory 16GB Yes nimble screws Western Digital VelociRaptor, WD1000DHTZ, plus a couple of 2TB Shatov under archives - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:13
Compare Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 and ASUS P9X79 PRO. While in my eyes beats the ASUS. Per Gigabyte of reviews about a lot of dampness caught - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:16
, Nene, I'm talking about the one that you picked up over 19.5 thousand. - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:19
Intel Core i7-4930K, OEM - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:22
While mother+percents = 29.2 To RUB Looking for memory. Depending on the memory will "cut" the budget under percent. and change it - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:25
OK, look. first, cpubenchmark.net show the estimated productivity indices. your current i5-660 = 3169, i7-3770 (candidate) = 9421, i7-4930K = 13089. That is, 3770 speed/price is better than 4930К about half. Secondly 4930К more TDP, stove. About the cooler not forgotten by the way? Thirdly ... yeah well everything. Well, the price system will work more. So better IMHO is better to build a second system unit next. Here is the calculation: 40 people work. Each person receives a salary, let it be 1000 rubles per day. That is, a simple server is 40 thousand a day. Let's say the motherboard is dying. Just go to the store to buy a new one. Under warranty of course nothing seems too long to wait. Always the nurse under this socket? Always in stock the percent? - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:28
although in General configuration greasier 64 gig is better than 32, there is no sense to argue - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:31
The fact of the matter is that next second not be able to collect - old child out in the office. Therefore, it is necessary to collect once and for the next 4-5 years. On the topic of betrothment/maintainability I agree to buy this mother is not just... - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:34
well and in General thanks for the great discussion and tips :) - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:37
There was a memory sensible to choose the mother from ASUS - abelardo_Nader25 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:40
any brand. I have one comp in kingston, the other crucial, both like normal. how to assemble a system - chase memtest, then prime95 for a couple of days - Estel45 commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:43

I have the "beneficiary households" as a budget platform for such purposes use the combination of AsRock Z77 Pro4-M (~$95) and Intel Xeon E3-1230V2 (~$240). Such sets of units 15-17, in months 10-12, normal flight.
Memory Hynix 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz, 4 strap. But it was bought at $45, now about twice as expensive.
Well, reliable power is the basis of everything.
