2 out of 5 eggsWhat a disappointment

Pros: Solid board, but there are some issues (read cons and other thougts). Supermicro is usually my second choice when it comes to server boards, and they usually leave me and my customers pretty happy with the purchase. This time though....I had to deal with some really stupid stuff that cost me nearly 3 hours worth of work.

Cons: BEWARE SYSTEM BUILDERS. THERE IS AN ISSUE ON THE SATA CONTROLLER IF YOU HAVE A SATA DVD-DRIVE AND YOU ARE TRYING TO CONFIGURE A RAID ARRAY. After assembling this monster server for a customer, I finally get to the point where I push the ON button and configure the BIOS. I chose the Intel Raid controller over the Adaptec (they are both embedded in the board). I configure a RAID-5 with 5x1TB 10,000RPM HDDs. Keep in mind that from port SATA0 to SATA4 there are 5 HDDs, on port SATA6 there’s a SATA DVD drive (which of course is excluded from the array). I reboot the system, everything posts properly, but after the screen shows the INTEL raid array and the board is supposed to read the installation DVD from the DVD drive, the screen gets black and that’s as far is it would go. I spent literally hours trying to change RAID configurations from RAID5 to RAID1+0, changing RAM clock speed in case the memory had something to do with this anomaly, but nothing changed. CONTINUES ON OTHER THOUGTS

Other Thoughts: I then removed the INTEL array, enabled the Adaptec and started over; same issue. Then after almost 2.5 hours of resetting CMOS, changing settings and stuff, I decided to connect and external DVD drive to the board through USB port, and I got the problem solved (but I had to physically disconnect the SATA port from the internal SATA DVD drive otherwise even the external drive wouldn’t work). Come on Supermicro, get it together. ASUS and TYAN NEVER have these kind of issues (maybe others, but not something that makes you waste so much time just trying to get a stinking OS loaded). And since I’m sure you are aware of it, you could AT LEAST write on your user’s manual!! This is the kind of issue that gets IT Pros to take their business somewhere else. May I add that I've been building servers and high-performance PCs for 2 decades, and this is not something I'd want to run into again. P.S. hopefully a BIOS update will take care of this.

5 out of 5 eggsRevision to "DOA"

Pros: The 3rd board shipped to me seems to work fine. And I realized that actually I was wrong about the board that I thought had the bad DIMM slots, one of my CPU's has a bad connection to the DIMM. Otherwise, great board.

Cons: For all I know one of the boards is responsible for cooking the cpu's memory pins.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Great features and price, if it worked

Cons: 2 DOA's in a row. First had a few bad RAM slots, the next had a bad 2nd cpu socket. Newegg's RMA policy requires me to ship them back before they ship me a new one. These are server boards and are time sensitive... so I have to buy new ones and eat the restocking fee.

Other Thoughts: Get it together guys, the next one better work and I'll change the review

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent dual-1366 server motherboard

Pros: IPMI 2.0, BMC, iKVM on-board and dedicated ethernet port.

Has 4 x8 PCIe 2.0 expansion slots, and no legacy PCI slots.

Two Intel on-board Gigabit ethernet ports.

Compatible with Supermicro high-efficiency power supplies.

Two on-board USB 2.0 "external" ports.

Standard 12" x 13" EATX size.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I got a couple of these boards to replace a couple Asus Z8PE-D12s because the Asus boards were incompatible with a high-efficiency power supply. It seems that some motherboards expect more than the 12V spec power, and the high-efficiency power supplies try to lower the voltage to very close to the spec. But this motherboard is solid and works with high-efficiency power supplies.
