5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints here

Pros: This is my 3rd build ever and found this MoBo a perfect match my Xeon L5640's-and 48 GB of ECC ram.I originally used matching Ultra Carbon x-3 but had cooling problem w/out board cpu running up to 63c while in-ward cpu at 43 under full load-changed out the hot running cpu heat sink/fan with Arctic Freezer 7 pro and brought temp down 10c-No other prob and win 7 ultra shows 24 cores-used pass-mark bench got a 1852.3 overall & 13906.1 cpu score

Cons: Nadda so far

Other Thoughts: Purchased back in Feb this year and got my rebate 5/12-opted for full amount 40$ over quicker and lessor amount-didnt think I was going to get it!
For those interested I used a Senty Burton Extreme case- 6 8GB DDR3 8500R Hynix Mem Modules Thermaltake 850 watt Black Widow-Re-Cert Evga GTX 460 Vid card

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive way to get lots of cores

Pros: There's really not another motherboard in this price range that will let you mount two CPUs. The two quad core Xeons I put in are seen in Ubuntu GNU/Linux as 16 CPUs, so this is great for running several virtual servers. It's been rock solid stable for me and has probably only been rebooted three times in the last year.

Cons: One bank of RAM is quite close to one of the CPUs and so it looks like airflow could be better, but it's never given me a problem.

1 out of 5 eggsANGRY Customer less than 2 months

Pros: I cannot see any PRO at this time

Cons: TERRIBLE service from ASUS and frankly I would like my money back but my BRAND NEW server motherboard failed just after 30 days.
This week has been the week from HELL with ASUS Tech Support and Customer Service.
ASUS engineer diagnosed Aug 29th my mobo was in fact dead. The server was not powered up more than 10 times as we were building out a new system.
The engineer assigned me a case# and said I need to speak with the ARS team but they weren't open until 12:30pm EST time and advised I call back. This team issues replacement before you return your failed part. Great I thought. What happened next? 4 days of hell. Whenever I call back to the server queue I get routed to other queues. To date 9-2-2011 I am still unable to get to the ARS team for my server mobo replacement. I've spoken with tech after tech, all tell me it's a server team issue. I even spoke with the main operator who took my message and would transfer it to a manager as I vented my frustration with her on 9-1-2011.

Other Thoughts: To date again, no manager has returned my call and I know have a mobo that I paid a lot of money for and I cannot get through to ASUS Server Support. They are always busy and NO other team can take their call.
I feel so CHEATED for ever going with an ASUS mobo.
As a senior IT engineer I have never seem such shabby customer server to replace a defective product.
THe main operator who I vented upon to request a manager REFUSED to give me her name or even when I asked for an operator ID. She said, it is company policy not to issue personal details, to which I replied, so all I can say is some employee took my message and I must trust it gets relayed to a manager for a call back. "Yes" she said.
I will be calling NEWEGG the first chance I get to see if there's anything they can do to help me with a mobo which crashed days after the 30 days mark.

NEVER BUY ASUS Server based products you will suffer with TERRIBLE SUPPORT. 5 days of calling and calling and still no ARS or RMA!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues you are experiencing with this server board and in obtaining an ARS RMA. Please contact us at so that we can pretest a replacement board and get this issue resolved ASAP.

3 out of 5 eggsCompatible With Just About Anything

Pros: Easy to get set up and running, very fast with both windows 7 and OSx86. Accepts a huge range of memory - ECC, non-ECC, unbuffered and registered. All of these ship with at least bios 802 now (ASUS is actually up to 902 now), so there isn't anything to worry about 56xx support. Running on one L5520 at the moment, nice and cool. Has a non-express PCI slot which was an absolute must.

Cons: First board I ordered had a bad BIOS chip. Had to send the original board back to ASUS in California which set me back $18 bucks. It took 1 week to get an RMA number out of them and then 3 weeks to ship it and get it back. Not the worst RMA experience I've had but still... definite minus points for that. MIO card doesn't work in OSx86, but that's to be expected. can't fault ASUS for that :) Oh, it doesn't have an IDE connector, even though the solder points are there for it. A bit baffling not to include that in a "server" board.

Other Thoughts: 6 Sata ports - with 2 RAID mirrors, I'm pretty much out :p time to invest in a PCI-e card?

5 out of 5 eggsthe workhorse in a black tuxedo

Pros: Love it! Came with v0802 BIOS; would take E560x CPU out of the box, G555 heat-sink is "whisper" quiet; there are 4 settings in the BIOS to control the fan speed; runs W2008R2 x64; runs on one CPU if you don't have $$$ to get 2 to start from ;-)

Cons: Not really a con but didn't boot from USB-stick; watch I5500 bridge temp: the sink has no fan and is getting hot! 1st memory stick is "hair-distance" close to CPU heat-sink

Other Thoughts: Booted from service DVD to Free-DOS and was able to read USB-stick; used ASUS windows based update to flash to v0902 BIOS. Put a fan on the top of I5500 sink; Will keep you posted
