1 out of 5 eggsBUYER BEWARE!

Pros: NONE

Cons: Memory Compatibility -- 5 short beeps + 1 long beep, No memory detected in the system

I have purchased and tested several variants of 1600/1333/1066 per the manual specs and YES my CPU is an E3-1200 v2 to NO AVAIL including Crucial CT4265512 which states compatibility. The result is as described in the Pros.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Home Server MoBo. (so far)

Pros: - Arrived in great shape exactly as advertised.
- MoBo is well designed and has so far worked reliably with my setup.
- Seems like a fair price for a middle-of-road server MoBo.

Cons: I took away one egg because as a first time computer builder, the manual/tech. specs. were not as well done as I would like.

- It was a bit confusing because the manual was actually written for 4 different motherboards...
- Point above made it difficult to find the applicable directions in the first place.
- The beep codes for setup were not well explained in the manual (this is my main complaint.) -- everything works fine, but I still don't know what the MoBo is saying when it beeps at me... Not many 3rd party reviews/unboxings/youtube directions to consult given that it is not a flashy "consumer" MoBo.

Other Thoughts: My Setup:
- Intel Xeon E3 1230 v2
- Kingston DDR3 SDRAM ECC 8Gb (16Gb total)
- Seagate 1TB HDDs ST1000DM003 (2TB total)
- OCZ ARC 100 SSD (120 Gb)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Easy to install.
Worked flawless out of the box.
6 SATA cables included. Intel NIC's work perfect without drivers in most OS.
IPMI is the bee's knees. Booted first time without monitor or keyboard. Just plugged in the network and used the utility to set bios and booted to the USB with FreeNAS loaded. Simple
I've used SuperMicro since the 90's and never had problems with them when using quality components.

Cons: Not sure if this is a real con but the CPU power plug is 8 pin.The power supply in the supermicro case that fits it so well is 6 pin.
Other than that I can't find any yet.

Other Thoughts: Making a NAS with this board, CSE 731i case, 3ea. 1TB drives was about as simple as it gets. Worked flawless from first boot.

5 out of 5 eggsCompatible with XenServer 6.2.0

Pros: Got this MB with Intel Xeon E3-1220 V2 as XenServer 6.2.0 host and it works fine. Added the TP-LINK TG-3468 after XenServer installation and Xen saw NIC just fine.
1 NIC for Xen network, 1 for storage, 1 for Internet.

Cons: A bit expensive for single socket, AMD board might be more economical, but not certain about XenServer 6.2.0 compatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent FreeNAS board

Pros: Very stable. Supports 32 GB ECC memory. 6 on-board SATA ports. IPMI. 2 Intel NICs.

Cons: 3 GB/S SATA only.

Other Thoughts: I started looking at x9 series Supermicro boards because they are recommended on the FreeNAS forums. I settled on the MBD-X9SCL-F-O because I wanted IPMI and ECC memory and planned to use the 6 onboard SATA ports for a ZFS RAIDZ2 array, and I didn't think 6 GB SATA would be much benefit with 7200 RPM drives. Overall the motherboard has been flawless. I definitely recommend this board, especially in combination with the e3 CPU and ECC memory below. For the money this is a powerful and stable combination.

My buld:
LIAN LI PC-V354B Black Aluminum MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz
Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600
TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM drives

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Flawlessly

Pros: Low price for server motherboard

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I needed to build a storage server for our domain. I felt I could do better and get more speed if I built my own rather than buy an "of the shelf" NAS. Here is what I used:

Server 2012 Standard
Intel Core i3-2105 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz
Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333
LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 9260-4i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 w/ 512MB onboard memory RAID Controller Card, Kit
Thermaltake RC2300101A MAX-2533 5.25" (x2) Bay to 3.5" (x3) Bay Mobile Rack
(3) Western Digital Red WD20EFRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

3 out of 5 eggsIncomplete box contents

Pros: Layout is good, everything is clearly marked.

Cons: Out of about a dozen supermicro server builds this is the 2nd time the box did not have a manual or driver disk which cost time having to download. Wanted to do raid 1 mirror but every time drives selected for mirror the dvd drive disappeared, never did get it working but no time to RMA. No this is not my first raid rodeo.

Other Thoughts: I used 2 Kingston 8gb kits KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G ECC Unbuffered memory works great.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent board, but issues with LAN

Pros: - Easy to setup.
- Decent speed with Xeon E3-1230 Sandy-Bridge CPU.
- Stable memory ... using this Kingston memory:

I am running Windows 2008 Server Standard on it, hosting some minecraft servers for my son and it's been just OK.

Cons: I have had intermittent problems with the system on the network (it just simply stops communicating, and the Windows Network dialog box hangs when I try to disable and re-enable the network device). I just recently went to the SuperMicro website and downloaded the Intel LAN software direct from there, but I'm pretty sure I tried this before ... it doesn't look like the driver version numbers are any different. I am assuming it's a driver issue because I ran CentOS linux on it for about a month, and had NO issues with the network. With Windows Server, I have network issues at least once a week! I need to get Windows 2008 Server running though because I like RDP for administration and plus it SHOULD work.

Other Thoughts: Will update my review later if the latest network driver download package works. I'd give it 5 stars if I didn't have this issue with the LAN.

5 out of 5 eggsNice board, especially for the price.

Pros: Remote console with virtual media support, UEFI support, support for Xeon and 'regular' i3/i5 CPUs.

Dual LAN ports and works fine with an Intel i350-T2 dual port network card.

Cons: I can't fault Supermicro for this, but one of the NIC ports isn't supported by VMware ESXi. I knew this going in and bought an added Intel dual port card to have a dedicated port for iSCSI and be able to play with SR-IOV (supported by the CPU, the board and the i350 Intel NIC (when using ESXi 5.1).

Other Thoughts: Those that mention the memory requirements and/or limitations in regards to requiring unbuffered ECC, didn't check the memory requirements of their CPU.

As of the Intel Nehalem series processors (like the Xeon 5500-series), Intel added the memory controller to the CPU (like AMD had been doing for years before that already). This means that memory type support is determined by your CPU, not the motherboard.

The Xeon E3-series only supports unbuffered ECC memory. To support RDIMMs on the newer generation CPUs, you'd have to upgrade to the Xeon E5-series (socket 1356 (E5-2400/1400) or 2011 (E5-1600/2600), so a completely different motherboard).
