Supermicro proves that servers do not have to be huge. This micro-ATX server motherboard supports Intel Xeon 3000 Sequence processors along with Core 2 Quad and Duo processors. It has a maximum FSB speed of 1333MHz and can support up to 8GB of DDR2 800/667 memory.

The board has an ICH9R South Bridge and 6 SATA II ports. This lets you set up a large RAID array. The controller supports levels 0, 1, 5 and 10. You can add additional storage to the 7 USB 2.0 ports.

Keeping a server cool is important, which is why there are 6x4-pin fan headers. There is tachometer monitoring of all the fans and firmware speed control.

2 out of 5 eggssuper micro let me down, again

Pros: supports ecc (unfortunately the bios won't show that, read other thoughts for more info)

Cons: bios is a pain to upgrade (need to boot from a dos program, unlike other major manufacturers like asus which can upgrade by simply plugging in a usb flash drive)
the bios does NOT have any ecc configuration options and will NOT even display that ecc is enabled
after nearly one year of use the motherboard will hit a hard lockup for no reason

Other Thoughts: I complained to super micro about the lack of ecc being displayed and they gave me a 'beta' copy of the bios that displays 'ecc mode' when booting with ecc memory (I tested with non-ecc to ensure it only does this for ecc memory), the bios upgrade is a real pain and something I expected from 1990's motherboards so one star off for that, the random lock ups loses another two stars. This is the last super micro motherboard I will probably buy. I purchased supermicro because of their reputation, this was a mistake. Note that I purchased two motherboards at the same time, the second one doesn't hard lock up yet one of the sata ports no longer works.

5 out of 5 eggsRevised review

Pros: Good support - see other thoughts. I have done 3 2008 Server builds with these boards and all work great. Good layout.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: Last review mentioned that I had to RMA the board due to no video. In fact I called support first and discovered that you have to put memory in the blue slots only if you are not using all 4 slots (I had the memory in the 2 black ones). Problem solved!

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Well laid out and simple board. Manual is pretty good compared to others. Comes with 6 SATA cables.

Cons: Jumper information in manual is confusing.

Other Thoughts: This one (my 3rd) came with no functioning video - but that can happen to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Server Board BUT...there's a fix

Pros: Great little server board. on board RAID works fine and is simple to setup.

Cons: Not so much a con, but...the NIC on my board didn't have a MAC address. DL the v15.3 driver from supermicro's ftp site to fix this. go to driver LAN Intel to find it.

Other Thoughts: Be quick to configure RAID...the screen to hit CTRL+I only stays up for 1 sec. Also, unless you plan on using nLite, make sure you have a floppy drive to install RAID drivers. Supermicro customer service is courteous and quick!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Server Board BUT

Pros: Great Board for the Price. Love having 6 4Pin fan connectors on-board. Also the built-in raid system is SWEET and easy to setup.

Cons: Only Had one problem. The On-Board LAN was DOA. Well not completely. It worked enough to send me through loops for days. After many cups of coffee and many web sites I decided to check the MAC address. Zeros across the board. Through in a PCI Network card and using that ever since.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this board again and again but Ill just buy a Network card as a backup. You wont be disappointed with this Motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Stable Server

Pros: I built this for a client's machine running Server 2003/R2. Installed memory is G.Skill 2x2gb, 1.8v. This board runs the standard 1.8v and 5-5-5-15-CR2 timing. Memtest86+ ran 36 hours error free. Intel ICH9R works well for two RAID1 sets: 640gb Caviar Black and 2048gb Caviar Green -EARS with jumper in place. All drives 100% full media scan under WDC Data Lifeguard prior to RAID.

The six SATA ports are located for easy reach in an Antec P183 case. Corsair 400W cables are long enough to reach the top-located ATX-24 connector.

The LAN is Intel gigabit, and runs fine on the 15.2 drivers. The installed BIOS is current at 1.2a.

Cons: It's a bit pricey for a "standard board" without sound. The Intel 3200 Northbridge runs warm at 45C. Note: be SURE to use the provided 3200-specific chipset drivers, as the current chipset drivers will install without error, but give you DHCP failures.

The onboard video with installed XGI drivers fares no better than Intel GMAC. I run it without the XGI Volari G9S drivers in default VGA mode. It's just a server.

Other Thoughts: Everest memory Read/Write is 6888/7070 MB/s. For comparison, the GA-P45-UD3R also with E8400 and 4-4-4-12/CR2 runs 6984/7063.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: This is one of the simplest MB's for a 2008 server build there is. I have used 2 so far. Both came with the latest BIOS. Even the CD had the latest drivers! Sensible layout with plenty of fan headers. Even an internal USB port allowing a hidden internal USB stick.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: 2008 Server 64bit with Xeon X330 & RAID5.

5 out of 5 eggs5 star support

Pros: I had a problem where the system wouldn't get past POST. I did some testing and discovered it wouldn't boot if VT-d was enabled in the BIOS. I went to the supermicro.com site and found a FAQ that indicated I would need a bios update that was newer than what they had posted on the web site. :( The FAQ said to contact support. I called, expecting long waits and support people that hardly knew what a keyboard was.
30 seconds after it first ringed I was on the line with a support tech that was very familiar with the product, was able to quickly find the FAQ, and sent me not only the new BIOS, but included the instructions and a link to software to allow me to format a USB drive to use for the upgrade. That's rare today - fast knowledgeable tech support. My next MB will be Supermicro.

Cons: MB wouldn't get past POST with VT-d enabled.

Other Thoughts: Want to hear what good support is? Call Supermicro.

4 out of 5 eggsStable, but with quirks

Pros: This is a nice, stable board. I have 3 of these in different systems, 2 running Windows XP and one running Linux (Fedora 10). All of them are reliable and stable. The onboard RAID controller works nicely as well, 2 of the systems are set up with RAID 10, the other with RAID 1, all perform nicely.

Cons: One thing in common on all of my X7SBL boards is that the RAID and onboard VGA are linked. If you disable the onboard VGA, you disable the onboard RAID. That means that if you want to use the onboard RAID, you have to leave the onboard VGA in place, even if you want to use a 3rd party card for your graphics. This causes issues with which video port to watch while in the OS vs while booting, etc.

It's a pain, but you can work around it. It shouldn't be an issue though...

Other Thoughts: Despite its flaws, I do like this board. 2 of the 3 systems I have this board on stay running 24/7. They all stay cool and stable, and are pretty quick considering. I probably won't be buying another of these since LGA 775 is becoming obsolete, any new systems will be using LGA 1366, but this was a nice board for its day.
