5 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Does not support Xeon 7100

Pros: Borrowed 2 Xeon 7110M CPUs and installed them to test the theory. Hitting the power button, no lights came on and the fans spun up. No signs of life otherwise.

I'm a little disappointed it didn't work, but I wasn't really expecting it to. Next, we will have to try 2 Paxville CPUs (for science, of course)

Cons: Supermicro does not provide a changelog--or any details at all--about what is fixed/updated with their BIOS updates.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard is at the latest BIOS (2.0C)

5 out of 5 eggsSolid as a rock

Pros: We built a server around this motherboard when we started my computer repair company about 8 years ago. It has been running nearly 24/7/365 since with little to no problem. After getting 2 batches of bad memory from day 1, it has been nearly bulletproof since.

Runs Ubuntu server with absolutely no problem--6.06 all the way to 12.04.

PCI, PCI-X and PCI-e gives plenty of space to upgrade, although you will need to populate one slot with a video card, unless you are going to run it completely headless.

Cons: Only accepts Registered ECC memory, so you can't skimp and buy desktop RAM until you can splurge on the good stuff. Of course, this really isn't a con, just trying to cut corners to keep upfront costs down.

Other Thoughts: Supermicro says it will only accept PC2-3200, but I am running PC2-5300 without a problem. The motherboard reports it as running at 3200 speed. Up until last week, when one of the last remaining 3200 sticks failed, it was running a mix of 5300 and 3200.

We have 2 Xeon 7110M's on order to see if it will accept the dual core xeons. Will report back on that with my findings.

Other specs:
2x 3.0GHz Xeon Irwindales
6GB (6x1GB) PC2-5300 Registered ECC
3ware 9550SX-16ML
15x750GB RE4--mirror for OS, RAID10 for data (4.1TB), 1 hot spare
Ubuntu Server Edition 12.04 LTS
Supermicro CSE-933T-R760B
