5 out of 5 eggsStill Fantastic!

Pros: Still rock-solid after almost 3-1/2 years of 24/7 operation. Went to WHS 2011 last year to take advantage of 64-bit support. Bought 2 more of same RAM, so I am running all 4 slots with 8Gb RAM. WHS 2011 had all the driver support I needed, and I'm rocking 7 Hard Drives. Runs cool and uses little power.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I am still loving this! High-quality product from ASUS!

4 out of 5 eggsRuns W7 64 great - trouble flashing bios

Pros: Runs W7 64 with Xeon 3333 quad cpu and 3g 800ghz ram fine

Cons: no windows 7 64 support I guess because it is a server board with 775 socket

Other Thoughts: having trouble flashing bios up to last version 311 which was for vista 64 as no windows 7 support doesnt recognize cpu and says temp over heat - think its an error

4 out of 5 eggsgood economy board

Pros: Price, 4 nics

Cons: cheap integrated video, fake raid with limited windows support, could use more USB slots.

Other Thoughts: I paired this board in a 4U rackmount case with 4x WD Caviar Black 500GB drives, 4GB of Kingston DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) RAM, and a Xeon E3110 (2x 3.0GHz). It's ran almost 24/7 for the past two years as a light usage file server. Don't bother setting RAID in the BIOS... your OS probably won't see it anyway. lm-sensors reports voltages, fans, and temps but for some reason throws the temp and fans into the "misc" pool. Any Ubuntu version above 9.04 will give you tons of EDAC errors in syslog until you disable fast boot in BIOS.

1 out of 5 eggsI wont recommend it for XP

Pros: For windows xp, it requires minimum of SP1. Other than that will not let you install plain Xp then add SP1 & SP2.
Also the driver/utility CD comes with it, made for Windows 2003, and it don’t say that.

Cons: Also the driver/utility CD comes with it, made for Windows 2003, and it don’t say that.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Economy Server Board

Pros: Quad LAN. 8 SATA ports. Two software RAID options available. Onboard video. Uses cheap desktop memory. Cheap. Great board for a simple home server setup.

Cons: Very limited BIOS options to control chip.

Other Thoughts: Using this board for combo pro-edit rig and home server. Server 2008 Standard 64 installed with no problems--just put your RAID and SATA drivers on USB key and configure USB as floppy in BIOS. Paired this with a Xeon 3360 CPU--it's a shame there aren't any overclocking options in BIOS but, then again, this is a server board meant for a stable system. Recycled 8 gigs of OCZ Fatal1ty DDR2-800 from an old gaming rig and no problems at all. Have twin WD 320Gb HDD's in RAID 0 for OS and 5 X 1 TB drives in RAID 5 config.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I've had 3 of these boards all bad. Dealing with Asus is warranty is horrible. They have sent out 2 used boards (not referb) to try to fix my mother both were bad. I'm waiting for a 3rd board now.....

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and don't buy this board. I won't buy any other Asus products after dealing with their warranty department.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Server MB

Pros: Easy setup, stable and does what I want. ECC memory is compatible and works.

Cons: Documentation is kind of thin on how to NOT utilize the additional 4 SATA2 ports in RAID mode. I didn't want any RAID, as it's not compatible with WHS...it has it's own duplication method. I'm still not clear what I actually did after 8 hours that got me non-RAID on those red ports, LOL.

Other Thoughts: I needed a good, quality server-grade motherboard that wasn't through the roof on expense for a reliable, error-free Windows Home Server. Be warned that you will have very little control over your cpu. I paired it with an E3110 Wolfdale Xon, but could not modify the multiplier. Even with C1E and Speedstep disable, the board still kept the Xeaon stepped way down to 2Ghz. It did however, ramp up immediately when needed. Plus for that! Overall, a good basic server board. I reccommend!

5 out of 5 eggsKnow what your buying

Pros: Quad nics, great processor support, a ton of sata ports. The board runs like a champ and is very stable.

Cons: none if you know what your buying

Other Thoughts: What do you guys expect from a value board? It's a full ATX server board with great cpu support for under $200. What do you want? Real hardware raid and better nics? The nics work great in Debian and centos, so if vmware isnt supporting them then shame on vmware. If you want hardware raid, go get a hardware raid card, which will cost you at least $175 for raid 0/1 and at least $300 for raid 5. A simple look at the spec sheet would have told you that it was soft raid. LSI megaraid would work in linux IF you know how to compile drivers against kernel source. In short, dont blame the hardware for your lack of reading a spec sheet and being an informed buyer.
