2 out of 5 eggsNot What I expected

Pros: Well, Layout of the board looks good, thats about it. gave this 2 eggs, because newegg does rock

Cons: Well first off, Alot of cons to this board, Can't do any tweaking to the cpu or ram, bios is really weak, Doesn't recognize my ati 3870 512mb video card, So i had to swap out with a x1950 pro video card and it worked. Supermicro Customer service wasn't good either, was on hold for about an hour.. Never Buying a supermicro again.

Other Thoughts: 2 Intel E5530 Xeons, 8GB Kingston Memory, 64GB SSD, 950 Watt enermax psu 2tb hdd, cm stacker 830 case

5 out of 5 eggsNice....

Pros: Solid quality Dual LGA 1366 on ATX up to 24GB; This looks to be the perfect ESX base for a home lab. I picked up an open box special. Posted succeeded 1st time. AMI Bios; easy to configure. This is the first time I've purchased a new SuperMicro, I've had great success with used boards. Never had a SuperMicro fail on me yet. They go forever.

Cons: Raid not recognized by VMware ESXi 4.0 (no one claimed it would be, but I'm hoping there will be a working solution somehow soon.)

Other Thoughts: X8DAL-3, 2 x Xeon E5330 (2.4 GHz quad core), 2 x Super Talent 4 GB PC 10600, 2 x Samsung 500 GB, 2 x Samsung 1 TB, PC Power 910 Silencer, Cooler Master Cosmos. ESXi 4.0
Powerful, but lots of room to upgrade. I expect to be able to run up to a dozen virtual servers, mixed linux and windows. More after memory upgrade. ( I have four slots left!)

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb!

Pros: Changed from a POC Asus Z8NA to this one. Instant happiness!. Z8NA always missed 1 DIMM worth of RAM, also was never able to run my E5530 at full speed. Also, Z8NA won't run W5580s. This one gives me the full set of RAM and also runs W5580 like a champ. 2 physical PCIEx16 means 2 graphics cards,possibly for physx or even crossfire (not tested for either) . The CPU sockets are a little offset which makes life a lot easier when setting up coolers.

Cons: They don't include SAS cables. Don't be so cheap SM! Not 5520 chipset.

Other Thoughts: X8DAL-3, 2xW5580(ES),24 GB DDR3 (6x4), GTX 295, Antec EA650 PS. Currently second place in Pasmark CPU benchmarks!
