5 out of 5 eggsGreat Workstation Board!

Pros: Excellent board to build a powerful workstation around.Compatibility with150W processors was needed in my case.I have a dual E5-2687W V2 configuration and they run without issue.Not all dual socket boards are rated to function with 150W processors.Sixteen memory slots are great for future memory capacity expansion.Other boards from competing manufacturers only have 8 ram slots.The PCI-E X16 slots will run crossfire just fine as I'm currently running two AMD R9 290X video cards.Some people have had issue with the on-board LSI raid controller but in my experience it has performed without issue.I have a Crucial M500 960 running on it as a boot drive and two other WD 2TB Black drives for storage.Proper configuration is needed to enable a specific drive to be a boot drive.

Cons: Depending on BIOS the board won't post with the latest Intel E5-2600 V2 processors.The latest BIOS release would post with the V2 CPU's but ONLY with ECC memory.I intended to use non-ECC unbuffered memory pulled from my previous system.After contacting Supermico about my issue they eventually provided me with a beta BIOS that does work with the V2 processors and non-ecc memory configuration.You might need a V1 cpu to update the board if the BIOS is too old.I bought a single E5-2603 to update mine.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier review

Pros: Newest Intel DP System
Loaded with Features
On-board Audio
Decent Layout (3rd (x16) PCI-E 3.0 slots will not take a double-wide graphics card)
Room for lots of RAM

Cons: Not really Extended ATX spec (Most holes do not match up to standoffs)
Buggy On-board SAS HD Controller

Other Thoughts: We just wanted to give an update to our earlier review...

In the end, Seagate replaced our SAS drives with a newer model (6 months later) and everything worked out-of-the-box.

Although we were not pleased that it took so much of our resources to get a working system, we were pleased that tech support from SuperMicro, LSI, and Seagate pulled out all the stops to satisfy us.

Hopefully, the problems that we encountered over one year ago have been since resolved in BIOS/Firmware updates. We'll raise our rating from one to three stars based on the solid performance of this motherboard since our issues were resolved.

5 out of 5 eggsAlternative Opinion

Pros: This Supermicro motherboard has everything you would want in a highend workstation: dual Xeon processors, Sata III and SAS 2 controllers, numerous USB 3 and 2 ports, quad channel RAM, etc.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I have not experienced ANY of the issues that are reported by the other reviewer. I flashed the motherboard BIOS and also the LSI2308 firmware. It required a call to Supermicro and their support was excellent (returned email within 1 hour.) I looked at every other motherboard that had similar specs. and this was by far the best in terms of supporting multiple RAID's @ 6Gbs (2x RAID 10's: 4x Samsung Pro 840's and 4x Seagate Savvio 10.5K's), high-end graphics card (Quadro K5000), 128 Gbs RAM, USB 3 and 2, Creative Sound Blaster Z, etc.) A great motherboard that deserves a second look.

1 out of 5 eggsNot ready for Prime Time

Pros: Newest Intel DP System
Loaded with Features
On-board Audio
Decent Layout (3rd (x16) PCI-E 3.0 slots will not take a double-wide graphics card)
Room for lots of RAM

Cons: Not really Extended ATX spec (Most holes do not match up to standoffs)
Buggy On-board SAS HD Controller

Other Thoughts: We have hit a brick wall in trying to get this motherboard into production. The on-board SAS HD controller is cooking our SAS hard drives. It seems to be accessing the SAS drives @ 100%; all the time. We have tested the motherboard with old and new drives. Same results. We have tested it with RAID arrays and single drives. Same results. We have used small capacity and large capacity drives. Same results. We have tested it with and without a backplane. Same results. This behavior even shows up during boot before the OS is loaded.

We have confirmed that these SAS drives have the latest firmware and are listed as compatible with the 2308 chip on the LSI website. We have confirmed that there are no errors/warnings being reported in the MegaRAID log. We have updated the SAS LSI 2308 Firmware; the Mega RAID Software; the X9DA7 Bios; and reinstalled the OS. The drives were tested empty, reformatted, or with files loaded on them. Nothing has solved this problem.

There does not seem to be any problems with SATA hard drives.

Even the Supermicro support team seems to be stumped.

In short, if you were expecting to use this motherboard with mechanical SAS hard drives, you may want to wait for a BIOS revision that addresses this problem.
