5 out of 5 eggsGood Hyper-V server board

Pros: 32GB DDR2 FBDIMM, SATA RAID and Dual quad core support. Having a PCIe x16 slot allowed us to use a high-end video card in the system as well.

The Intel Deployment CD that comes with the motherboard makes updating the BIOS a breeze.

Cons: Have to update the BIOS to use it with the Harpertown 5400-series processors and you can't update the BIOS with a Harpertown in it. Luckily we had a Xeon 5150 that we were able to borrow from another server to use to update the BIOS.

Only one PCIe x16 slot, no x8 slots.

The CPU power plug location interferes with the installation of full-length cards in the upper PCIe x4 slot.

Other Thoughts: We are using the Intel S5000PSLSAS boards in the servers that need two PCIe x8 cards or were we had to put two full-length PCIe x4 cards in.

We use this board in our Hyper-V servers (Dual Harpertown E5430's, 32GB DDR2 FB-DIMMs, WD 300GB Velociraptors in RAID0) and it performs flawlessly. Highly recommend this board to those looking to build a highend workstation or an excellent 'whitebox' server

5 out of 5 eggsGreat workstation board

Pros: Dual quad-core Xeon support. 16-bit PCI-E. 8 FB-DDR2 slots.

Cons: Newegg has been out of stock for a long time so I had to pay a lot more from another seller named for some tropical jungle.

Not sure if it is the fault of the board or of the aftermarket Xeon CPU coolers I bought but the capacitors around the CPU sockets prevented me from using the coolers. But stock Xeon coolers are far better than the stock P4 coolers and you really don't need the aftermarket ones.

I'm not a gamer so the single 16-bit PCI-e is good for me. The latest version of the Supermicro workstation board (X7DAE+) has two 16-bit PCI-e slots and 7.1 sound while this Intel board only has stereo sound.

There is no floppy controller or firewire controller.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to build a home server. I run as many as 16 virtual PCs and servers at a time using VMWare Virtual Server on Vista Ultimate X64 and this thing doesn't even break a sweat.

I got a pretty quiet case and pretty quiet fans but the CPU fans are loud. Afterall, it is server processors intended for a server room. So I moved this to the pantry on the other side of the wall from me and punched through extension cables to bring everything to my desk - even a USB/Firewire DVD burner so it's dead quiet now.

5 out of 5 eggsWoodcrest works, and Video too

Pros: 1. Works with Dual-core Xeon 5000 series processors and is also the Quad-core procs.
2. PCI-e 16x slot for super-game machine making.
3. Quad-channel memory bus, plus each memory slot is accessed in a "serial" manner.

Cons: 1. Uses FB-DIMMs, which are costly, but you get great performance at least.
2. Serial access to the memory is done thru conversion, so you get a bit of speed-loss from it. If you run with dual-channel config, the memory performance is actually slower than on a dual-channel Core 2 Duo board (compaired to an Intel 975XBX), but in quad-channel you make it up, and then some.

Other Thoughts: To the one who Intel told you there was nothing to do, I'm sorry they bungled up with you. You probably just had a bad board. I've built 3 machines with this board, and all have worked without a problem, all using various models of the Woodcrest (Xeon 5150, 5140, and 5120 were the ones I used).

If you can afford it, and want the uber-mega-power machine, build one of these and put an 8800GTX video card in. You'll be running small countries in no time!

5 out of 5 eggslove it!

Pros: Super fast! Love this motherboard. Comes with a Intel Boot cd which boots into linux and grabs the latest bios upgrades and then prepares your HD for OS install. Unfortunately, I'm stuck using primarily XP32 with my new xeon system, due to closed binary only applications that don't support non-windows environments...

Cons: Only 1 PATA connector, which wouldn't work with my old plextor 40x burner. The burner works perfectly on my older xeon system, so not sure what the problem is.

Other Thoughts: Runs my 5160 xeons with zero problems. Installing xeons is always a bit of a puzzle, so be careful!

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: None

Cons: This board does not work with the woodcrest chip, after working with intel support for a couple of days they finally agreed that there is nothing that can be done.
