What CPU/Motherboard to you recommend for running WHS2011 with outside chance I may upgrade to Windows Server 2012 R2

Nice find! Bookmarked for reference!

 

And yes, for most, 2012R2 is overkill.

Though, personally, I'm a fan of overkill (check my signature for details :P)

  I don't plan on using it for transcoding but my plans could change

From my limited experience of building boxes for myself for over 20 years your plans ALWAYS change.

If I was building a system right now I'd take a serious look at Poppapete's build over at http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/7052-hardware-for-2012-e-r2/?p=77826 and I would put in as much CPU as I could afford -- at least 4 cores IMHO.  They all consume about the same power when Idle but when you load them down I would want it to have the capacity to handle a heavy load quickly and get back down to idle and not sit at 100% utilization for a long time.
