2 out of 5 eggsHas serious flaws

Pros: The only pros I really see are the amount of memory it can hold and the type. DDR3 is definitely worth the price. It also has a lot of power plugs for internal fans. That was very handy when I was running 12 HDD's and a 12 Core processor.

Cons: Let me start by listing them all:
1- Came with 1 out of the 2 LAN ports broken (Would find an IP and then lose it a few seconds later)
2- Motherboard MUST go through its boot up cycle twice with a RAID card installed (horrible design flaw)
3- It only works with a very select number of processors
4- The mobo buzzer doesn't help in anyway in telling the user what is wrong when something is. Its just a long piercing tone that doesn't shut up unless you reboot the machine.

Sadly I am not the only one that has has this problem with this board. I have had it now for 2 years...and just a couple days ago, I rebooted the machine, and it now won't even post.

Another con is there return policy. Even though they have one, its mountains of paperwork to only (MAYBE) get a refurbished one weeks later. Well I need a new mobo now, not in a couple weeks.

If you are thinking of getting this board, I highly suggest you DON'T. I am very angry at myself for getting it and now I can either wait a couple weeks and get a refurbished one or go and spend another $230 on a new one. Sadly the new one is sounding better...

Other Thoughts: Other than the cons I mentioned, the board worked for the 2 years I have owned it. I just wish the cons would be fixed. A motherboard shouldn't be such a hassle!

3 out of 5 eggsNot great but not bad

Pros: I like the fact that it supports my 12 core AMD processor and a bunch of memory! Good solid connections in the back

Cons: It has an annoying buzzer on the mobo that doesn't ever tell you what is wrong. Its just a screeching noise when I am copying data from my RAID array to another drive. Another annoying thing is that it takes a long time to boot up. It has to go through the boot up process twice. I have set it back to default settings to see if that would change anything, but no.
Mine came with 1of 2 ethernet ports broken. (Would find an IP and then lose it a few seconds later) I would have returned it but everything was set up and I had extra ethernet cards available to use.

Other Thoughts: Dont buy this product unless you have the specific AMD processor that I do. The motherboard can barely run the most up to date Operating Systems so there is no real reason to get it if you want to run, say: Ubuntu 12 or earlier, any of the other linux OS's or Windows Home Server, or VMware ESXi. NONE of those will run on it. Seems to be a waste of a board if you ask me! I wish I knew that before I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Performance, Reasonable Price

Pros: → High performance.

→ Stable.

→ Logical layout.

→ It's Super Micro. We've never had a problem with their products.

I recommend this product to anyone wanting to build a powerful server with excellent reliability. Be sure to use error-correcting memory!

Cons: None of which I am aware.

Other Thoughts: We used this board to build a Linux server for a long-time client. They are very pleased with how the server is performing. The build included 16 GB RAM and SAS (non-RAID), achieving 20800 Bogo MIPS using a quad-core Opteron MPU.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Board!

Pros: This is a big board, and it has everything you need for a server build.

Cons: No hdmi or dvi, but not really needed for a server.
No sound output, but again not really needed for a server.

Other Thoughts: If you want to use this thing in your home you would need a good graphics card and a good sound card. But this thing works great for a server, and all 6 of my hard drives are connected via sata drives. I had to connect my optical drive with a sata to ata adapter cause there are only six sata ports on the board. It all worked great though.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This my second server buld with the H8SGL motherboard. Supermicro is top quality. No problems at all. It already had the latest bios and started right up with a 6220 Interlagos 8 core CPU and KVR1333D3D4R9S/8G memory (N82E16820139140).

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: good product, good price and good performance for a departmental server with 8 cores.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Have just built my 3rd server with this board. It is a great mix of features at a reasonable price. Quad-channel memory support really makes a difference in performance. Used Kingston 32GB quad-channel kit (Item #: N82E16820239015) and performance just rocks (make sure you install DIMMs into correct slots starting from very first slot at the top of the board and populating the same color DIMM slot all the way down; if you don't install RAM in correct slots the server either won't POST or the quad-channel won't be active and that is a lot of bandwidth to miss out on!). Board is standard size, not extended ATX, and this makes space management inside a case that much easier.

Cons: None of the cons are big deals, but here's my list for consideration:

1. No SATA3 or USB3 on-board.

2. Northbridge heatsink gets hot and should have active cooling. My solution in 3 servers I've build on this mainboard is to simply glue in a case fan to the inside of the case so it blows over the top of the northbridge. Takes no time at all, cools just fine. All is good.

NOTE: The most recent board I ordered in June 2012 came with latest BIOS and had no problem recognizing Interlagos CPU. Only previous boards ordered 6 months ago I had to flash BIOS.

3. If you want to use Interlagos CPU you may get a board with an old BIOS. If so the BIOS is not modular so you can't just send in the chip for flashing. You might need an old G34 CPU and then call up SuperMicro tech support if you need instructions on how to format a USB flash drive to mimic a DOS bootable CD. They are very helpful. Once BIOS flashed to version 2.0 then board will take Interlagos no problem.

Other Thoughts: This mainboard really is a steal of a deal. Quad Channel memory rocks and expansion for some snazzy RAID cards etc. makes this a great platform. The 3.0 Ghz 8-core AMD Opteron is a great work-horse. Figure in the cost for performance and this setup really outshines Intel offerings at a similar price point by a substantial margin. The slightly bone-headed design flaw of not putting an active cooler on the northbridge is easy to work around with an 80mm cooling fan super-glued to the inside of the case (takes temp down from 65/70 C to 45/50 C). Otherwise the on-board RAID takes forever during POST but is very useable. The size fits any case, although I suggest a bigger tower for easy expansion. All-in-all this is a great product that is under-appreciated.

3 out of 5 eggsReplaced

Pros: Lot of ram slots quick boot

Cons: I have replaced it one time and this will be the second time I think the undersized heat sink causes the board to reboot due to heat and will eventually cause the board to fry. The first one would just reboot for no reason this one started doing the same thing and now it just will not turn on at all.

5 out of 5 eggsgood product

Pros: Booted up the first try with an 8 core opteron 6220 Interlagos 3.0GHz cpu. I used 32gb ecc registered Kingston ram #N82E16820139140 without issue.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The noctura cpu cooler I used blocked the x16 slot but I didn't need it anyway as this is a server and the onboard video is fine for this build. 8 cpu cores are plenty for me as this is for a departmental size server running centos 5 and is not running a bunch of vm's.

2 out of 5 eggsUndercooled Northbridge

Pros: It works when cooled properly

Cons: The heatsink on the northbridge is undersized. Using default bios settings, it would overheat(and reboot my machine) while under full load. I had to rig up a dedicated fan over the northbridge area to get stability.
