5 out of 5 eggsAnother great Supermicro motherboard

Pros: I've been using Supermicro server boards for more than ten years and have yet to return one. I particularly like this board because of the legacy ports (VGA, serial, PS/2, PCI) available along with some of the newer tech (HDMI, USB 3.0).

I always appreciate it when someone posts the specs that worked for them, so I’ll do the same. I know it can be confusing when putting together a build, especially a server. This server’s main purpose was to be a backup domain controller, thus the specs aren’t anything extraordinary. I hope someone else can use this as a baseline for their server build.

*Enlight EN-8950 server case with RAIDMAX RX-530SS power supply

*Supermicro X9SAE-V motherboard

*Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 3.4Ghz CPU

*2 x Kingston 8GB 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC unbuffered DDR3 1600 RAM (KVR16E11/8)

*2 x Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5” 256GB SATA III SSD in RAID 1 using motherboard’s Intel RAID capabilities

*2 x Orico AC52535-1S-SV 5.25” to 3.5” and 2.5” hard drive mounting bracket adapter. You may not need these, depending on your case.

*16X Lite-On SATA DVD+/-RW drive

*Server Standard 2012 R2. Note: RAID drivers are included with the Server 2012 R2 OS so there’s no need for a separate RAID driver disk (a major plus!)

Cons: It's easy to miss the Intel RAID configuration on boot. First enable RAID in BIOS (DEL key at boot) then on next boot press CTRL + i to enter RAID setup.

Manual not included. You can download it at Supermicro's site.

Other Thoughts: *Supermicro’s site clearly states that for the onboard video to work the CPU must have graphics integrated, for example the E3-1245 or E3-1275, so plan accordingly.

*This motherboard has a 24-pin ATX power connector (required), an 8-pin CPU power connector (required) and a 4-pin auxiliary connector (optional, but recommended for additional power to expansion slots).

*To optimize RAM, follow the instructions on the insert included with the motherboard, or on page 2-9 of the manual (found here- It’ll guide you through the order in which slots should be populated.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: it's made by Supermicro

Cons: $220+ mainboard, and they throw in 6 of the cheapest, flimsiest, NON-CLIP sata cables I've ever seen. Sure, it's just another $18 or so to replace them with Sata-III right angle clip cables, but come on, I already shelled out $220 to get the mainboard.

Other Thoughts: Next time I'll stick with ASUS, full set of accessories and a manual with driver disk.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Same as before

Cons: Same as before

Other Thoughts: I tried SLI and it does not work as I expected. This is a server/workstation board and not a gaming board.

I got a re[ply back from SuperMicro stating that it doe NOT support Crossfire nor SLI.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board, but...

Pros: Clean layout, easy install.

Cons: - No motherboard manual
- No drivers

Other Thoughts: Supermicro really ought to hire someone to work on their webpage. If you won't include manuals or disks with your product, at least have a user friendly website. Ugh...

3 out of 5 eggsManual?

Pros: Nice board, good clean layout. Simple is what I wanted.

Cons: Unfortunately, installing for a friend and his was sans the owner manual and no driver disk. Only had the quick start guide, had to use the web. Hope it wasn't a return, until it boots and runs stable, gonna give only 3 stars...

Other Thoughts: Neither Newegg or Supermicro had info on power connections to motherboard. It has a 24 pin main, 8 pin, and 4 pin.

4 out of 5 eggstime will tell

Pros: More than one PCI-e option.

Cons: RAM slots very close to the CPU. My Evo heatsink would not fit without touching the RAM chips, although I had all slots populated so it may not be a concern for all, since I think the blue slots that should be filled first, are farther out.

Other Thoughts: No IPMI or video chipset, which I should have taken into consideration when deciding which board to buy. RAM I used was Newegg Item: N82E16820239371

4 out of 5 eggsNice board - Pricey

Pros: * Very helpful tech support. They're actually trying to help you unlike like the Chinese brands. Plus, no waiting period when calling in for helps.

* Realtek ALC1155 is another bonus too. I really like the 116 dB of SNR. Other brands are still using the 892 / 888 chips which doesn't make any senses at all.

* Very fast boot up, the BIOS actually learns its routine and remembers it well so you don't wait too long on a reboot.

* All of the ports work

Cons: * Why the dual link DVI when in fact it was soldered as a single link on the back end. That's beyond me. They could've soldered 3 MDP as Intel specified so we can use all 3 monitors at high resolution but now we're stuck to just one.

* C226 chip has a terrible heatsink. They could've used a slightly bigger heatsink to dissipate the more heat.

* It doesn't read the RPM off a fan with a single yellow connector. You have to plug the entire fan plug with all 3 pins into the mobo to get proper reading.

* Their website is missing an Intel 3.0 controller driver.

* Intel C226 SATA 3 reported to Samsung Magican that my Evo 840 write speed is only 255MB/s. Crystal disk and other reported 500MB/s. No biggie here even though it's pretty disturbing. Asmedia seems to work fine though.

Other than that this is very a nice board. Good solid construction / high quality stuff.

Other Thoughts: * User manual stated it uses non-ECC only. Don't believe it, that's a typo. It does, even the BIOS stated so too.

* Tech support thought you can not simultaneously utilize both dedicated and iGFX, they're wrong. Just set iGFX to enabled from auto in the bios to enable this. Then again, they mssed up the design by soldering a DVI and VGA when they should've just soldered in all 3 MDP.

* Becareful not to plug a USB extension into the Firewire header because they're both identical.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard to go into SC743 chassis. I read the specs at Supermicro site and asked some questions regarding components prior to placing order. Supermicro on line support was better than most and provided very timely responses.

Cons: Not really a con as I missed this. There are only 6 SATA connections on the mother board. The case I purchased had 8 hot swap bays & 3 51/2" bays. Simple enough solution, buy a plug in SATA controller card. I can't knock the product for my oversight.

Other Thoughts: From my perspective, Supermicro products are high end. I am of the opinion their primary market is geared towards businesses or providers where there is a regular IT person/group for support & their documentation (on the web) seems to reflect that. Depending on the chassis you may need cable extensions to get every thing connected. I knew that going in.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Workstation Board

Pros: Hmmm all the goodies that the C216 affords. ECC, USB 3.0, VT-d, etc.
Very stable, nice features and works perfectly in Supermicro cases (of course, they have their 'stuff' together).
I don't care what other techies say, 1155 is not dead. It may not have newer CPU's coming out for it (who cares, when it comes time to upgrade you want an entire new system anyways) but the usefulness of Ivy Bridge Xeons mixed with ECC, this board, SSD drive(s), Windows 7 Professional, and dual HDMI displays is at least five years. I won't go into great detail but get a PS/2 Unicomp Ultra Classic keyboard for some serious hacking and forgo cheap USB keyboards.
This thing means business and has the features needed for a stable work environment. Please don't complain if you are working on mission critical data with desktop computers using non-ECC RAM, I don't care how good your backups are. Downtime trying to figure out when the data got corrupted, restoring, getting back to where you were before the corruption took place is totally unacceptable. Real data corruption may happen only every few years but are you willing to play Russian roulette with your data? I won't, get what you need!

Cons: Doesn't have an onboard TPM module but easily added.

Other Thoughts: I have not tried it yet but this board looks to be a perfect match to become a Q u b e s workstation. I will test that theory soon with a USB 3.0 flash drive.
