5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I love the "integrated KVM" that this board has. Although slightly buggy at times (hard to connect to, must reset ikvm multiple times before being able to connect to it) it is very convenient.

Cons: nothing wrong to say about it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid platform

Pros: Running ESXi 5.1 with multiple VMs (ESXi boots off onboard USB), FreeBSD 8 / 9, and CentOS 5 / 6 OS's on this platform with no issues. One platform uses the onboard SATA ports off the C202, no issues. Add-in cards are various combinations of LSI 3081E-R and Intel i350 / E1G44ET / ET2, no issues. Utilizing dedicated IPMI port for all console management, again, no issues. All platforms are absolutely problem free in 7 x 24 operation with Intel Xeon v1 and v2 CPUs and DDR3-1333 ECC unbuffered memory.

Cons: During testing it was noted that LAN1 (em0) did fail to maintain line rate performance under FreeBSD8, and in fact would disconnect momentarily, interrupting the test cases under high utilization. LAN2 (em1) was not tested. Did not explore this fault further, as production use would be with add-in cards which perform flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: No experience or empirical date to support or deny Windows platform claims.

1 out of 5 eggsFollow-up

Pros: I'll look for Pros in other server boards...

Cons: Server 2008 R2: constantly drops LAN connectionin the middle of large file transfer, system logs are full with error events related to LAN connectivity... nightmare...

Other Thoughts: Ater two weeks of troubleshooting I RMAed this board back to Supermicro and got a new one with SAME PROBLEM !!!

Then I connected a laptop with cross-over cable and discovered that LAN is dropped only on LAN Port-1 and the Port-2 is NOT affected... This is a SECOND board.

Then I discovered that Supermicro did modified the original INTEL EEPROM image to make that Port-1 a dual-purpose data/ipmi port. That "customized" EEPROM image HAS BUGS and causing problems...

To be 100% sure I also installed a PCI-E network card (HP NC382T) and it runs just fine with same OS.

... I design and build PCs and servers since 1999 and I must admit: this board is absolutely worst experience ever.

I'm writing all this to help fellow IT pros to avoid my pain and frustration...

1 out of 5 eggsneeds better QC

Pros: Looks good. That is about it...

Cons: Would not power-up properly - fixed that with BIOS upgrade.

*LAN Interface keeps dropping connection with Server 2008-R2. Updated BIOS, NIC eeprom, LAN driver - nothing helps...

Other Thoughts: After 3 month this board is NOT ready for a production server. Had to call Supermicro support million times - still no resolution. Nothing else to say...

5 out of 5 eggsA little odd, but the price is right

Pros: IPMI, dual integrated Intel GigE, LSI and Intel integrated RAID, support for up to 32GB of RAM in a mini-atx board? do want.

Cons: Initially had problems with RAM not working with this board. Bear in mind if you purchase this board, you need to use ECC Unbuffered RAM, ECC Registered will _NOT_ work with this board. I bought two 16GB kits of kingston ECC registered RAM and I got BIOS beep codes indicating there was no RAM available. Lovely. Had to RMA it, pay restocking and get unbuffered.

Would have liked to know what kind of RAM was compatible with this board prior to doing that. Went to kingston's memory compatibility site and eventually found that this board requires unbuffered ECC RAM if you want to do ECC on this board.

Software RAID is acting wonky with ESXi. The board is compatible with ESXi, but I'm having a hard time getting my dual terabyte seagate barracudas to make a RAID 1 that ESXi can use. ESXi just sees a bunch of disks (JBOD). Will update if I figure out what's wrong here or if the onboard RAID just doesn't work with ESXi 5

Other Thoughts: pay attention to what RAM the board requires to work. I'm an IT guy through and through, but I made a rookie mistake, and so can you if you don't pay attention.

1 out of 5 eggsBuggy Bios

Pros: SuperMicro Support

Cons: Buggy Bios. Had stability issues w/Server 2008R2, so upgraded bios from 2.0 to 2.0a. After the upgrade could no longer boot from SATA DVD. Found through SuperO support an obscure bios setting "Launch Storage OpROM policy" must be set to "Legacy only" (not default). This disables UEFI, which Win2k8R2 uses if avail (and is generally considered better). Disabling this makes hard drive partitions which were in GPT format unbootable, requiring reformat/reload. STAY AWAY from this one until Super0 fixes their bios.

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor expansion card compatability

Pros: Nice board, quality components, IPMI

Cons: 4 out of the 5 expansion cards I've tried have required BIOS upgrades or downgrades to get working. Right now it won't detect a quad port Intel "PT" NIC and crashes (hard locks) with a dual port Intel "PT" NIC installed. Previously, I had to get a beta BIOS from support to use an LSI SAS controller & before that I had to downgrade the BIOS to get an Adaptec RAID controller to be detected.

Other Thoughts: It's a real nice board if you don't want to use any PCI-e cards in it, otherwise expect it to take a week or 2 for Supermicro support to churn you out a beta BIOS...assuming you can sell them on supporting the issue.

This lack of compatibility with common PCI-e cards makes for a very poor experience bringing up a home ESXi box or a FreeNAS server.

Overall I'm very disappointed with these boards (I have 2). Coming from Supermicro I expected a lot more out of them , in fact I think it's fair that I should be able to expect them to work with common, brand name add-on cards.

As it is now I would have a tough time recommending anyone use one of these boards

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System Board

Pros: Board fit well into purchased case, nice desighs and well worth it. Had a nice external NIC access even when the system is powered off.

Cons: Only had one issue, the ram I purchased did not work even though it was the correct ram for the system. Returned the ram and pruchased corrosponed modules recommened in manual and system fired right up.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Nonsense Server Board

Pros: A good priced Server board for SoHo Network Applications and 24-7 File Server duty. And for a nice middling price. This is my Fourth Server from SuperMicro in 10 years that I set up for my Office/Practice.

Cons: Not actually a Con as much as a Heads-Up. This Server Mobo has an integrated Thermal Sensor and an Audible Alarm. Similar Previous SuperMicro Server Mobo versions running Xeon CPU's could stand regular duty with other workstations Temperature-wise. But this one has a thin skin about getting too warm--Fans notwithstanding. And it complains LOUDLY. Be ready to place this Server in a Cool Setting and in a well vented Box.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a decent board.

Pros: This is a nice motherboard, it has IPMI, so there’s no need to have a monitor/keyboard hooked up to it. It’s also a mATX board, so it doesn’t take up much space and it doesn’t take much power to run it.

Cons: While this board does support v2 E3 Intel chips with BIOS version 2.0, the problem is that as of 5/27/2012) it doesn’t ship with it. If you’re buying a V2 E3 Intel CPU you won’t be able to boot the motherboard with the CPU. You will need an earlier version CPU to flash the BIOS to the latest version. If you’re like me and don’t have any other processor it makes this board useless. When I first put the motherboard together I booted and I got four beeps. I called SuperMicro tech support and they insisted that it was bad memory to the point of being condescending. After better support on the Internet I was able getting my hands on an earlier CPU. I boot it and flashed it to 2.0. The reason why I took two eggs off is because tech support was so condescending and saying the error was memory. If you have an old CPU, like a socket 1155 Pentium G6xx or Celeron G4xx you can boot with it to flash the BIOS so you can use a V2 chip.

Other Thoughts: I have this running with vmware’s esxi 5.0. It seems to be taking roughly 50 watts. I have several VM’s installed. One is Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010, which hosts e-mail for about 10 people. The other VM is running pfsense firewall and another VM has Ubuntu server that is running asterisk for a phone system (VoIP). I can download on the Internet at 50mbit/sec while saturating the gigabit NIC’s and it still runs like a charm.

My config is this:

Fractal Design Define R3 Silver Arrow Case
Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz
Seasonic X Series X650 Gold Power Supply
Intel EXPI9402PTBLK NIC (WAN/LAN firewall)
Intel SASUC8I with two Vortex 3 SSD’s in RAID1
Two WD VelociRaptor 300GB off the SATA ports.
