5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Everything is as expected.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The new server I built utilizing this motherboard blows away the old 2Ghz Intel single core system. The following components made a very nice system.

- (1) SUPERMICRO CSE-822T-400LPB Black 2U Server Case
- (1) SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SBI LGA 775 Intel 3210 ATX Server Motherboard
- (1) Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Yorkfield 2.5GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor
- (4) Kingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) ECC Unbuffered Server Memory Model KVR800D2E5/1G
- (6) Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s [RAID Configuration with hot spare]
- (4) Dynatron P555 77mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

4 out of 5 eggscorrection to my review

Pros: Correction to my prevous review - this board does not have any special eSata ports on it - What I thought were eSata are actually on-board USB ports, not the usual header pin type (which it also has) but rather (very unusual) Type A ports usually found externally.

Cons: My Bad.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little server board

Pros: Supermicro quality. Very stable once you get it running (see Cons). 6 SATA and 2 eSATA ports. Works with most Intel LGA775 CPU chips, you do not have to use a fancy Xeon. You also do not have to use expensive server memory, regular DDR2 will work. (If you do use ECC memory, which I recommend, you need UNbuffered, NON-registered, NON-FB, DDR2-800 ECC DIMMs, which are available but still a bit rare.)
This is one of the few boards that works as an upgrade in the little Supermicro CSE-512/513 half-depth 1U rack server cases, as long as they have the 260W power supply. Will accept either a PCI Express (note, X8 max, X16 won't fit!) or a PCIX expansion card (but you will need a special riser card, which Newegg is back-ordered on as I write this).

Cons: I tried to use a new Xeon 3110 CPU (45nm chip) and it would not boot, even though Supermicro says it is supported. Problem was the BIOS, it needed updating, which could only be done by temporarily installing another CPU (I used a Core 2 Duo) long enough to do the update. Also be aware that the BIOS is too big to fit on a 1.44 floppy so the only way to do the BIOS update is by booting to DOS via some other bootable media. (I used a USB flash drive, which is supported for booting - but you have to figure out how to make the flash drive bootable. Google it.) Once I got the BIOS updated from 1.0a to the required 1.0b (dated 2/1/2008, downloaded from Supermicro), I put the Xeon 3110 back in and it worked perfectly.

Other Thoughts: To use it in those little 1U cases, which have a front blower fan, the only heatsink recommended by Supermicro is their passive SNK-0016P. I don't think Newegg carries it. Other 1U sinks may work for you.
The special riser cards for those 1U cases are the CSE-RR1U-ELi for PCI Express x8, and CSE-RR1U-Xi for PCIX. You can use one or the other, not both.
This is not the fault of the motherboard, but cabling for a SATA hard drive in the older CSE-512 case is very very tight. I had to make a special power cable. (The box was designed before SATA existed.) Also, for that case, you will need the longer front panel cable from the later revision.
