ASUS P8B-X
ASUS KGPE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard
 
G34 Mainstream Performance and Power Efficiency

The ASUS KGPE-D16 server motherboard delivers significant computing capability with 16DIMM slots and high expandability with six expansion slots - conquering the most intense and demanding tasks.


ASUS P8B-X
Supports Up-To-Date AMD 16/12 Core CPUs

KGPE-D16 is based on latest AMD G34 chipset architecture to support 45nm Opteron™ 6300 / 6200 / 6100 series processors. The platform is designed for highly threaded application, delivering 16 / 12 / 8 core multi-core performance, quad HT3 links with up to 6.4GTps interconnect rate per link, and a 12MB shared L3 cache.

ASUS P8B-X
Standard EEB with 16 DIMMs & Industrial Standard Riser Card Slot (Slot 6)

KGPE-D16 is designed in EEB (12" x 13") form factor, with 16 DDR3 1600* memory DIMMs to support up to 256GB (RDIMM). By supporting industrial standard PCI-E x16 (Gen2 x16 link) Full Height & Full Length Card in 1U, this board offers you the highest memory capacity without source for proprietary chassis & riser solution.

*DDR3 1600 can only be supported with AMD Opteron 6300/6200 series processor.


Dual Use for Server (Rack Ready) & Workstation

The ASUS Flex-E technology provides the flexibility to auto-switch between two true PCI-E x16 Link (support two double deck graphic cards) or one PCI-E x16 Link & two PCI-E x8 Link (for I/O expansion). Moreover, the boards supports ASUS MIO audio card, which offers enhanced signal-to-noise ratio in a 7.1-channel surround setup to deliver an exhilarating surround sound for professional usage.

ASUS P8B-X
High Quality Components for Greater System Reliability & 85% Power Efficiency

ASUS is the first company to phase in 6-Phase CPU power, 3-Phase memory power and All Ultra Long Life Solid capacitors on serverboard in the market. These features not only provide the support for high-end 140W CPU, but also deliver highly efficient and reliable operations.


ASUS Proprietary I/O Kit Expansion (PIKE) SAS2 6G Storage Supported

KGPE-D16 supports ASUS PIKE 2008/IMR for RAID 0, 1, 10, and 5; and PIKE 2008 for RAID 0, 1, 10 and 1E. The design of ASUS PIKE brings two key advantages:

  • Provide flexible SAS storage add-on card selection.
  • Board edge design: locate PIKE expansion at the edge of the board for full height card support when PIKE is installed.

Optional ASMB4-iKVM for Remote Management

The optional ASMB4-iKVM provides remote real-time full control access to the system based on BIOS-level by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks good on paper!

Pros: Dual G34 support
16 memory slots
Seems affordable

Cons: One CPU slot did not work out of the box
Took a long frustrating time to diagnose boot issues, which were really hardware issues
ASUS support totally useless. Waited on the phone for 2 hours with no reply. Serice site down. RMA not available online and on and on...

Other Thoughts: This is my 4th ASUS motherboard since 2002. I had positive outcome with the previous plain vanilaa boards. Don't know what to make of all the positive reviews posted here. However, it appears that the negative reviews are rising fast.

I have lost too much time trying to make things work. I should have gone with SuperMicro boards, specifically SUPERMICRO MBD-H8DG6 looks good and has great reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsWill not buy any Asus server motherboard again

Pros: - looks good
- dedicated management lan
- other equipment (PCIe and PCI slots)

Cons: - Random reboots , can not run it 24x7
- integrated GPU is a garbage (8MB of video ram). Ubuntu can not even switch to high-resolution
- 3rd LAN can not be used for networking
- requires a separate card for iKVM
- most onboard SAS/SATA connectors does not work out from the box. Requires a separate card for proprietary PIKE slot. Since card uses proprietary slot, it will become useless after motherboard replacement
- USB 2.0
- onboard SATA 3GB/s
- very long POST

Other Thoughts: Reboots randomly every ~20 hours even without load. Under short stress tests (memtest and CPU benchmarks) does not seem to reboot. Looks like some ACPI/bios-related issue.

My config: Ubuntu Server 14.04, 2x6128 Opteron, 8x8GB Supermicro F617R2-RT, 500W PSU

I would better go for Supermicro or Tyan motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: Great board build carefully.

I have 3 of these boards, one older rev board running (2) 6200 16 cores each with 64Gb ECC - running at 1333

All (3) systems I build are in Antec Titan server case, not the best case, but the board fits nicely and have room for 8 internal drives.

The newer KGPE-D16's (all have 3201 bios) are running:
(2) Opteron 6386SE @ 2.8Ghz - Best G34 chip.

Running with 128Gb Ram - runs at 1600 - Kingston 16Gb Chips - fills all orange slots. (looked up on Kingston.com)

Using the good - Noctua G34 Cpu Coolers

Power supply: Don't cheap out on this! many that did reviews got low-end junk ones and modified them. Get a Seaonic 850 Platinum which has the (3) total DC connectors for Mainboard.

Raid: wow - someone here was using the garbage promise software raid. lol - don't do this. I got an LSI 92XX series HARDARE RAID cards - one is an 4i/4e - and have it hooked up to a external drive cage - SAS2 drives, BBU, Cachcade option - SSD infront of RAID (yes hot spares) This is better than the Pike offerings - spend another $500+ for good RAID.

Runs tons of stuff easily.

Cons: No drivers for Vmware - just what it can detect.

No temps or Fan sensors! Please post here if you have this board running ESXi 5.5 u2 and can see them.

I have 158 sensors - plus I can see raid health in VMware, so that is ok - but not perfect.

Other Thoughts: Got a virtual render box that I gave 20 cores to run Autocad renders. Crushes everything...

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless without raid rebuild

Pros: It hold 2 fast processors and plenty of memory.

Cons: I have 2 of these boards, both have had healthy drives dropped out of a raid array and the raid rebuild does not function regardless of how many drives you offer to the broken arrays. Without a raid rebuild these are worthless in a production environment.
Customer support is terribly slow considering this is supposedly a business product.

Other Thoughts: I love the idea of these boards, if they fix the raid I will be a fan, but this broken array situation has cost me too many hours of productivity with zero positive results.

1 out of 5 eggsRaid is does not rebuild

Pros: They hold nice CPU's and support plenty of memory.

Cons: Tech support is slow to respond, these are server boards, used most often by businesses that depend on their servers, support should be much more responsive.
I have bought 2 of these boards, at some point both of them have dropped one or more drives from a raid array for no reason, the drives test out perfectly elsewhere, once this motherboards raid drops a drive there is no option to rebuild, you can replace drives all day and the raids will not rebuild. Using Webpam the only arrays that offer rebuild are the fully functioning arrays, why would I rebuild a fully functioning array, I want to rebuild the broken arrays.

Other Thoughts: Without a way to rebuild a broken array these boards are worthless as server boards.

2 out of 5 eggsNot The Calculation Bear I Expected

Pros: Easy to set up. Booting from USB is great. Ran at first power up.

Cons: I built this to be a workstation for CFD calculations. I used 2 Opteron 2.6 GHz 12 core processors for a total 24 cores. Had to make several BIOS and operating system tweaks to finally get the system to run my test case about 10% slower than my Intel I7 2.3 quad core notebook. Unacceptably slow. Opterons don't seem to be good for intensive calculation work.

Other Thoughts: Will not make a good boat anchor either. I swapped to an Intel board running 2 xeon 2.0 Ghz 8 core processors for a total of 16 cores. I am now able to double the iterations in my test project and calculate in about 1/3 the time it took on my notebook.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY IT!

Pros: NONE!

Cons: This board came out in 2010 at the same price they are asking for 4 years later. No sata 6gb no sas rad or even single unless you pay another 300 for a pike card. No usb 3.0 And the board has major issues. No support for efi. Board is pure garbage.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection

Pros: I wrote a review of my ASUS KGPE_D16 and in it I said I had problems with MSI boards in the past and I meant to say SUPERMICRO, sorry.

Cons: See Pros.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Workstation/Server Board

Pros: Stable; Fast; Holds Loads of Memory; Great RAID/PIKE selection that work flawlessly; My computer runs for days and sometimes weeks at a time without a problem. I ude my computer for an Audio Workstation among other things. I use MOTU professional PCIe based sound and it works flawlessly.When I went to upgrade my CPU's from to 6228SE's the technician broke the CPU socket, ASUS immediately sent one out, it arrived the day after I mailed the old on in. No problem with customer service here. BTW Bios upgrade was without a problem.

Cons: I got my first board right as they were released, mine was one of the first run. One of the cpu sockets was dead. I had to wait for the second run for a new one and when it came they gave me a free remote ASBM chip for my wait. The board is definitely configured more for a server than a workstation. No sound card chip, not that I would have used it as they are all junk. No USB 3. Tight PCIe arrangement. Could use more PCIe bandwidth. Practically impossible to fit 2 high end Video Cards in if you want multiple +3 screens you have to go for a pro card and they are very expensive. Hope they upgrade the board with a second edition that includes thunderbolt. Front SATA could have been 6GB/s although my Pike card supplies 8 x 6GB/s headers.

Other Thoughts: All in all it is a great board, especially for a board that was first generation for the AMD G43 6000 series CPU's. Good supporting chips (North and south bridge). Could Use an update i.e. 2nd edition. Remote ASMB chip can be handy, so can the chip that hold passwords etc. and yes I have both. There is nothing that would make not choose ASUS again for a MOBO. I have had disasters in the past from, and was charged a lot more MSI and other companies.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't even think about it !

Pros: Looks like a great bargain....

Cons: It is not a bargain. It reboot randomly till the beginning and i try to replace every single piece of hardware ( ram, cpu, power supply from redundant 800w to 1200w )...nothing worked !
Get a SuperMicro and be happy !
