This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DAL-3-O Server Motherboard Dual LGA 1356 (Socket B2) DDR3 1600
Pros: Decent number of SATA (only 2 SATA3), decent quantities of memory supported (check the memory compatibility in the manual, there are many rules about which memory you can use at which speed, more than the standard 240/DDR3/1600), decent number of case fan headers (all 4 pin PWM)
Cons: IMPORTANT: Requires special supermicro case (class "Revision M"--not searchable, so look at the supermicro website for compatable cases). I did get a compatible case which worked perfectly. For grins, I tried a legacy case I had lying around and while 5/6 standoffs lined up, the sixth (the middle screw on the edge where the two CPU sockets are) did not have a corresponding hole on the mounting plate, No embedded video card (Odd for a server motherboard).
Other Thoughts: More thoughts later, perhaps, when I have a chance to burn it in a bit.
