This review is from: ASUS KCMR-D12(ASMB4-IKVM) Server Motherboard Dual Socket C32 AMD SR5670 DDR3 1333
Pros: Exceptional build quality. Excellent options; allows for a ton of fans, has automatic fan control of either DC 3-pin or 4pin PWM fans for both the CPU and case fans; huge number of ram slots, non ECC, ECC and Registered ram support. adequate number of PCIe slots.
IKVM features are neat for remote shutdown, reboot, BIOS control etc; this board comes with the IKVM module, which is normally $50 or so.
Dual Intel Enterprise NIC ethernet 1000BT controllers.
Comes with Socket 940 cpu cooler brackets (Major plus!). Tip: Use the Coolermaster Hyper 101A CPU coolers if running a tower case or a 3U or higher rackmount case; they fit next to each other on the board, cool very nicely and are cheap; MUCH cheaper than the Noctua coolers.
Cons: Long POST. No on board sound (must purchase sound card).
5670 chipset; this limits the number of PCIe lanes. Thus this board is designed as a basic or mid-range server board. Do not buy this board for Workstation usage; that would be reserved for a 5690 chipset board, like the TYAN boards.
Requires a eATX case; make sure to either buy a very large case or a rackmount case.
The placement of the C32 sockets makes cpu cooler choices limited. The cpu sockets are very close together horizontally; you are limited to Dynatron style coolers (which are very loud and do a poor job at cooling the CPU; but are necessary if you are doing a 2U or 1U case) or using the Coolermaser Hyper 101 coolers (which work very well). This is not the case with the KCMA-D8.
Other Thoughts: Two AMD Opteron 4180 processors, 4x4GB Crucial DDR3-1333 single ranged Registered modules, Corsair Obsidian 800D eATX case, SeaSonic 750W 80+ Gold power supply, Twin Coolermaster Hyper 101 CPU coolers loaded with Enermax MAGMA 80MM fans, 4x Samsung Spinpoint F3R RAID class SATA hard drives, LSI Megaraid 8130i PCIe x8 SAS controller, Gigabyte Screencooling Radeon 4550 PCIe X16 video card
