Supermicro has established itself as a leader in server technology, and continues its strong commitment to give you the best server solution with the MBD-H8SGL-F-O server board. Based on AMD's SR5650 north bridge chipset, this ATX board is ready to host the AMD Opteron 6100 series processors with 8/12-core support for superior performance during today’s intensive workload. With 8 DIMM slots, it can support up to quad-channel 128GB Registered ECC DDR3 or 32GB unbuffered ECC/non-ECC DDR3 800/1066/1333MHz memory to significantly improve the computing capability.

This motherboard has a full range of expansion choices with three PCI Express 2.0 slots and three PCI slots, providing substantial I/O bandwidth for current and future application needs and protecting your investment as flexible options for server utilization.

The server motherboard has integrated 6 SATA 3.0Gb/s ports which have built-in RAID support for better data protection. Two independent controllers guarantee the maximum data throughout of its dual-port Gigabit Ethernet. This really benefits small- to medium-sized businesses with the best upgrade capability and data protection.

4 out of 5 eggsinteresting board for decent price

Pros: dual gig nic's ipmi/bmc lrdimm capibility. decent mix of slots.

Cons: firmware/bios bug can cripple gb speeds untill you update bios and set to optimal defaults. no usb3/eSata for recovery purposes. Ipmi console does not have a static/definable size. It has issues with linux console blanking and will start flipping between tiny and huge untill you catch it and hit a key before it shifts size again.

Other Thoughts: all in all a solid board. appiairently that generation of Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network cards had a bad firmware used during manufacturing of products or something. under normal 100mb load even maxed out no issues seen. once you keep a 1g transfer going for 1.2gb or longer it would fail. this and other strange issues were seen on several different brands of boards.

5 out of 5 eggsEpic freeNAS or Storage Server

Pros: Will handle lots of RAM. Price.

Cons: Limited PCIe slots. SATA2 on board.

Other Thoughts: Mounted inside N82E16811152534. I'm using Solaris, but would work great with freeNAS (I think there is even a USB port directly on the board to plug in a thumb drive to boot off of). These SuperMicro AMD servers pack so much freaking power for such a low cost. I am now sold on AMD as a viable option. With the amount of RAM these CPUs handle I could virtualize a whole isle of racks full of outdated servers at work in a few U.

4 out of 5 eggsCPU Opteron 6272 Interlagos 2.1GHz

Pros: Seems very, very stable so far.

Cons: It's dog slow running Linux 3.8.12 kernel but I have not tried any optimizations . I also have a ASUS Workstation MB with Xeon 5620 and a simple test compiling gcc was slightly faster on the Xeon.

Other Thoughts: For the CPU fan I used a Noctua NH-U9DO. I really like it lot, however I could only attach on fan because the video card slot is in the way.

3 out of 5 eggsA missed opportunity

Pros: * 8 RAM slots for DDR3 reg. ECC up to 32 GB per stick
* compatible with legacy hardware thanks to PCI slots and ATA connector
*TypeA USB connectors on board, so that you can have a USB stick sitting inside the case as a boot drive.
* Nice software for monitoring health status included.
* Northbridge temp gets monitored too
* Power I2C header allows monitoring capable PSUs

Cons: * specs a bit dated today with PCIe 2.0
* no real PCIe x16 slot, is only x8 electrically (it does work with a graphics card, though).
* no SAS option offered (as opposed to Supermicro's C32 board H8DCL, for instance)
* Northbridge gets very hot, mine up to 75°C before I installed a dedicated NB fan pointing directly to the heat sink. Merely exchanging the thermal paste didn't help at all.

Other Thoughts: If Supermicro had used AMD's top dog SR5690 instead of the cheapest SR56xx chip in AMD's portfolio, the H8SGL could have had two real x16 slots plus one x8, and not of the anemic combination of two x8 slots and one x4 that we are having now. I find it a bit sad to ponder what a gem this board could have been with a SAS option and a more generous Northbridge solution.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent low cost high power board!

Pros: -supports latest AMD processors
-very stable
-excellent tech support

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Great board! Running fast and stable for over a year! Running two of these with a AMD Opteron Magicour 6128 and 24GB of ram ECC and they have been running blazingly fast. Running Hyper-v 2008R2 and I have thrown a ton of VM's on it and nothing seems to slow it down! Highly recommend for a cheap home lab. Tech support was good when I couldn't figure out the IPMI. Bios is updated regularly, and with the latest update, it supports the new 6300 series 32nm, even though I haven't bought those yet, it's good to know they support it!

5 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: IPMI is perfect.
Newegg shipped the board with Rev3 BIOS from 8/31/2012.
iKVM is flawless so far.

Cons: Wish Supermicro had another single socket G34 that had more PCIe slots and bandwidth and less PCI.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing ESXi 5.0 or HyperV Board

Pros: Fully compatible with an ESXi home lab whitebox I built. I also have a second one set up on Server 2012 Hyper V and it's humming along too. Stable board, pretty good bios settings, lots of expansion. I'm using with entry level interlagos CPU.

Cons: None, cept maybe price, but entry level ATX server boards are all around this price

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a super solid G34, then get this. Remember you cannot put more than 32 GB of DDR3 in here unless you get registered memory.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat home for a bulldozer CPU

Pros: ATX form factor.
High quality Intel nics onboard
IPMI for remote control

Cons: Sata-2 not Sata-3
Could have more pcie and less PCI slots

Other Thoughts: Getting an Interlagos CPU for this motherboard means you can put together a 16 core system. Great for hosting VM's.

You can build a system with 64GB memory for less money than you might spend on a single faster processor.

4 out of 5 eggsGood and Stable Board

Pros: This board has a lot of great features--256 GB RAM capacity, RAID support, and support for a 16-core processor. Our server remains on 24/7 and it has been going without a hitch for most of the last 18 months.

Cons: I've had recent problems with the USB ports and onboard RAID configuration. Supermicro's support site is not very good--bios updates and other driver updates were difficult to find in the sea of blue lettering and links found on their website.

The onboard video that comes with the motherboard has some serious lag--I used the onboard video for a while out a laziness and I had to put up with slow screen refresh rates and minimal video capacity the whole time.

Other Thoughts: We had constant problems with our previous server and it would regularly crash for one reason or another whereas I've only had a couple unexplained crashed with this server.

Overall I have liked this board and recommend it to anyone building a personal or small business server. Just be sure to check out their website to make sure your RAM and OS are compatible.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: has IPMI, good tech support, 6 fan's power ports
Reconized the interlogos CPU out of the box no bios upgrade required.
pci-e X4/X8

Cons: Onboard Adaptec Raid did not want to work durning install
Windows 2008 R2 Standard Install using packaged BIOS
ver 2.0a
Onboard Matrix video little odd, get a good cheap card and don't bother with onboard video

Other Thoughts: You must add Memory in packs of 4
Sent several email questions about raid and settings to
tech support at supermicro and they answered them all quickly. Don't really care about the on board raid. Was going to use an Adaptec 51645 anyway
Get a good cheap video card
