How well do you think windows server 2012 will run on these parts, I will not be doing any virtualization. My uses are file sharing and active directory!

What you are putting together is not a supported Windows Server 2012 system - can't even find the mobo on www.windowsservercatalog.com. So everything is a guess. If it is a system that is known to be able to run Windows 8, it will most likely run Windows Server 2012. You will might need to use Windows 8 device drivers to get some devices working.
