5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: I just realized it's been over five years since I bought this board. I bought it only after very careful review with plans for a raid controller on the first PCI slot. After over five years, it's been absolutely everything I could have asked for. It's running ~50 virtual machines like a champ.

Cons: My (a little bit oversized) CPU fan gets in the way of replacing RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsThis has been a great board

Pros: .
-not very expensive
-adequate features
-zero problems after a year of use

-bios is a little clunky.
-I don't like the cheapo Nuvoton/Matrox video chip. I would prefer Intel for this.

Other Thoughts: I'm about to buy a second one for another location.

Do yourself a favor and ditch the stock Intel E3 series cooler. Those clamps are junk. You will sleep better if you replace it with a bolt-down solution (at least I did).

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: i love these boards they are very reliable i havent had one die yet

Cons: 3 eggs due to minor issues. boards fw lacks major refinement. the onboard video chip at least on mine is not the Nuvoton WPCM150GA0BX as stated its a matroxg200w and the video performance is horrible but its not an issue for me.
another annoying issue is the thermal sensor alarm threshold its. the alarm constantly goes off for no reason as the system is not overheating. ive had this issue on multiple supermicro boards. yes they all have the latest fw

Other Thoughts: 6th or so server build with this board and would definitely buy more

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value, rock solid & fast!

Pros: Inexpensive, extremely stable & very fast. Those that are having trouble should carefully read the specs on the web site. They are clear & concise.

Cons: Not exactly a con, it was a little tricky to find & configure the right PCI-X slot for my RAID controller. A few attempts of trial & error and I was there.

Other Thoughts: My specs: Supermicro X9XSCL, Xeon E3 3.1Ghz, 8GB ECC Kingston PC3 10700, Highpoint Rocket Raid 2720, 5 WD WD10EFRX 1TB in RAID 5, 1 WD10EFRX 1TB for PC Backups, 1 WDC WD20EFRX 2TB for Server Backups, 1x4 + 1x3 slot hot-Swap backplanes, WHS 2011 SP1.

5 out of 5 eggsSupports Ivy Bridge out of the box

Pros: The version of the board I received supported my Ivy Bridge CPU out of the box. Still, it's not a bad idea to keep a Sandy Bridge CPU around just in case you get one with older BIOS.

To those complaining about memory issues, remember that this is a server class board, and as such requires server class memory. Stick with decent unregistered ECC and you'll be fine.

Cons: The placement of the power headers does not jive with several Supermicro cases. I had to purchase a 12" extension to fit in my Supermicro case. You'd think their engineering departments would talk to each other from time to time.

5 out of 5 eggsStable board

Pros: Have built about 10 servers using this board, and never had an issue. Everything works as expected.

Great price, rock-solid stable.

Cons: Would be nice if fan control would work with 3-pin fans, but this is documented so can't knock it an egg.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why some other reviewers are having so many problems. Maybe its not really the motherboard's fault...

5 out of 5 eggsGood Board have several

Pros: Good Little board. For those who have memory issues, try reading the DETAILS page right on this site! It clearly lists what memory you need to use. (duh!)

Cons: People that don't know what they are doing giving this bad reviews.

Other Thoughts: If it's slow you aren't using a fast enough disk! I Used a 3ware 9750i card and 4 of the new Samsung 840 Pro SSD's.

1 out of 5 eggsPass on this one

Pros: I haven't managed to find any

Cons: Its very picky on the type of Ram that it uses, and since I have had it, I have had nothing but problems. Currently, I am having an issue with Random Reboots, this is after it burned through 2 hdd (I seriously think it was the MBD that caused this)

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: When it works, excellent stable board that supports the latest Xeon Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Cons: Needed Sandy Bridge CPU to flash new BIOS onto boards before they would recognise an Ivy Bridge CPU.

No IPMI support (no BMC).

No fan speed control unless 4 pin fans are in use.

Out of the three boards I have ordered, so far one has a bad DIMM slot from the manufacturer. This is completely unacceptable; to top off the bad experience NewEgg wants me to pay $13 in return shipping to get it replaced! At that price I'll probably just eat the bad slot; buyer beware!

Other Thoughts: If you get one with a bad DIMM slot (apparently not all that uncommon), this is really a $173+ board, not $160 as advertised. At this new price point I would recommend going with a board that supports IPMI.

On its own this board would have gotten 4 eggs, but instead gets 1 egg because of the bad DIMM slot.

1 out of 5 eggsPeice of GARBAGE

Pros: cheap, supports Xeon E3 CPU,

Cons: I would give this board 0 eggs, but the site won't let me. This is hands down the worst board I've EVER got from Supermicro. They are actually extremely lucky that I've used several of their boards before, otherwise I'd never buy their parts again, this board has been that awful.

1st: The memory MUST be un-buffered, but the only place this is documented is in passing in the middle of the user's manual - nowhere else (website etc.)

2nd: When the the SATA controller is set to RAID, it WILL NOT boot from the DVD. Nor will it boot from a separate controller. The only way I could boot from DVD was with a USB adapter.

3rd: Windows SBS 2011 Essentials so far runs like molasses in January, in Alaska! I've got a Xeon E3 1220 @3.1 GHz w/ 32 GB of RAM - this thing should SCREAM, but it doesn't. And this is with the hardware drivers installed!

Other Thoughts: Until now, I've always had nothing but good to say about Supermicro. All I can think of as an excuse for this board is they must have had a novice design it. I returned 1 thinking it was DOA (I had buffered RAM, not yet knowing it was the wrong stuff - Newegg was fantastic about the exchange). When my second board wouldn't work I called Supermicro, who informed me I had the wrong RAM. Again, Newegg was excellent about accepting my return. When the new RAM arrived, the board STILL wouldn't work. Supermicro grudgingly accepted my diagnosis of a bad board and RMA'd it for me. The 3rd board works, but with my above complaints.

Bottom line: STAY AWAY from this line. Get the more expensive family up from this one!
