1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT GET Ivy Bridge!!

Pros: Easy to install and well laid out.

Cons: Ivy Bridge CPU's are only supported on version 352 or later. Newegg CON NOT guarentee a particular version. They were gracious enough to understand and allow me to RMW w/o the 15%. Get the standard Sandy Bridge to be sure it will work.

Other Thoughts: Why Intel didn't just make a new part number to keep this from happening is misitfying. It's bad enough when CPU type needs a BIOS update befor eit works.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty decent home server...

Pros: Stable as a rock
E-3 XEON processor is awesome with this chipset! (I have a E3-1240)
Decent onboard RAID (see cons for notes)
Onboard video is you don't want to use a card

Cons: If you have a bottom PSU, you may need cable extenders for the 8-pin and 24pin power cables.
The x16 slot only does x8. Not a big deal for a server but might be impactful if you want to use it for a workstation.
Really confusing RAID spec because it has two! There is an onboard Intel RAID controller chip that will do RAID 0/1/10 and 5. There is an LSI chip (which I suppose is better) that will do 0/1 but if you want RAID 5 you need to buy an add-on chip.
Linux software drivers are not targetted toward mainstream distros (like Fedora or Ubuntu). Took a little wrestling and installing of 32bit libraries on my 64bit system to get the software to work under Fedora 16. Only to discover their RAID tools were for the LSI chip and not the Intel chip (so I wasted hours for nothing).
Only one ISA slot. Not a huge deal, but I would've like to throw my SCSI DAT Tape drive in there along with a SB Audigy card. I close the Audigy since I use online backup of critical files.

Other Thoughts: I didn't go with a separate RAID controller because I felt that Intel board would provide me sufficient capability (I have 3 x 2TB hitachi disks running in a RAID-5 with 1 hot spare for server A/V media). My OS is on a 500GB disk along with a blu-ray. I am very impressed with the stability of the system, but the documentation in regards to their RAID setup is very confusing. The website manuals points to the Intel RAID, but the CD and software is for LSI without any real explaination of when to use one over the other. This of course is not an issue if you are using RAID via an expansion card.
I have had the system up 24/7 for 3 weeks now providing media services, MySQL databases, Glassfish app servers and subversion repos without a blink.

4 out of 5 eggsGood (real) server, less so workstation, home server, or HTPC

Pros: Quality board, mechanical design is OK, fairly good selection of BIOS options, serial port (and console redirect), micro-atx size is nice for density

Cons: ACPI S3 (sleep/suspend-to-RAM) is completely absent, as it is on all Intel "Server" boards. This is sad, because this board would otherwise be a nice energy-miser home server or workstation (x16 slots aren't just for doing math)
More support under SATA ports would be nice, no Windows 7 chipset drivers on Intel's site (but they are on the CDROM in the box)

Other Thoughts: Nice basic board, but with better ACPI support it would be useful in more scenarios

5 out of 5 eggsAnother glowing review.

Pros: Reliable, decent performing micro ATX motherboard. (Please see my other review) We are now running a total of 84 of these boards, generally using the CPUs on them at 100% on all 4 physical cores 24-7 with zero failures since we purchased the first batch in August.

Cons: Please see my other review.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to respond to the review wherein the board was said to be specific. This board uses the standard set of screw holds that any micro atx board uses (in fact it uses the same mounting holes that a standard ATX would use, just not as many because it's not as long). There is an inherent flex issue in any hardware installation, I would ask, if your building a system from scratch, why wouldn't you just install the cpu before you install the motherboard. The back of the board even contains a metal plate designed to prevent flexing. The only section that could use some extra support is the section that contains the sata ports, a good tech will see this and just hold the board with their finger while they install the cables, no fuss. I will agree that Intel should have provided a rubber bumper or some sort of device for this, but I don't feel that taking off three eggs is right for something so minor.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy it

Pros: micro-ATX

Cons: On Board video didn't work (monitor flashes), and no slot for an add-on card. I don't know if its a compatibility problem with the Xeon E3-1225 I used, or just a bad on-board video.

Other Thoughts: Past 30 days for RMA, and Intel is a bear to deal with when trying to get a return or warranty

2 out of 5 eggsVery Specific

Pros: Intel board would have good support.
Plenty of peripheral slots for small board.

Cons: This board does not have a standard set of mounting points and the instructions provided note the use of "bumpers" to be placed on the bottom of the board for installation. These "bumpers" are NOT provided. I could not get this board mounted without being concerned with it flexing during installation of the chip and other components.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent board for the price.

Pros: No frills board, perfect for a cluster node. Onboard video (good enough for diagnostics) and two 100/1000 ports, supports ECC memory. Solid, dependable Intel manufacturing, runs at expected speed with E3-1240. Runs fine with linux (using kernel 2.6.29, and suse).

Cons: None for our purposes. Received one bad board in a group of 16. Board powered on, but never posted, onboard LEDs acted strangely compared to the 15 working boards.

Other Thoughts: We've purchased 48 motherboards this year for our cluster, 16 of this product and 32 Intel S3420GPV boards. Of the 48 only one was bad, the other 47 have not had any problems, hence the decision to give five eggs. Given motherboard complexity, I'd say one bad board out of 48 isn't too bad. The RMA kind of sucked though as I didn't send the board back in the box with the matching serial number and newegg held the RMA until the correct box was received. Seems trivial to me but if you buy a batch, be sure to keep all your boxes just in case.
