5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo for NAS

Pros: Integrated LSI SAS controller.

Cons: Just one external USB 3.0 port.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with the board; everything has worked as expected, no issues. I run ESX on it with FreeBSD as a VM and passthrough the SAS controller to FreeBSD. Works great. SuperMicro provides IT mode firmware for the SAS controller. It really is the perfect board for a NAS server.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns perfect for FreeNAS build

Pros: have had this board for a few months now, runs perfectly for a FreeNAS build. tons of sata/sas ports. 12 drive array (2 x RAIDZ2) 800MB/s writes and 1.2GB/s reads. LSI controller only adds a few watts compared to my old Areca card.

Cons: Not much in the way of fan control for a desktop setup. It would have been nice if they had provided a rackmount and desktop mode you could switch between. It's profile is set for smaller very high speed fans used in rackmount cases so it doesn't really spin down lower RPM desktop fans. Luckily the fans I used included adapters for fan speed so it was able to set them at a level that didn't produce so much noise.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend for a FreeNAS build.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome platform for integrated ESXi/storage setup

Pros: - All onboard hardware works great with VMware ESXi 5.5u1 (both NICs, SATA and SAS controllers, all onboard sensors)
- Integrated SAS controller can be configured as basic RAID (0,1,10) or firmware flashed to be a plain HBA, exposing the individual disks to the OS. Given the cost of a comparable 8-port LSI card, with this mobo you're paying for the SAS card and getting the motherboard for free
- Integrated Intel NICs are solid, no Broadcom nonsense here
- Onboard IPMI is incredibly handy -- after initial set up you'll never need to schlep a monitor and keyboard to wherever you hide your server
- Low power consumption: I built this machine with an E3-1230v3, 2x8GB RAM, 5 2TB 3.5" WD Reds and a WD AV-GP 2.5", idle power consumption is around 90w.

Cons: - Documentation is pretty crummy. The box contains a one-page setup poster, which I'm fine with, but the downloadable PDF manual could be better written and more complete, especially in regards to the onboard IPMI -- generic doc for that is buried elsewhere on SuperMicro's site
- Using the IPMI remote console requires Java. Then again,so do HP's and Dell's and IBM's remote console solutions.

Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard to replace an aging home server built around a Tyan motherboard with a Pentium D in it. I wanted to virtualize my existing FreeBSD/ZFS storage setup, while being able to toy around with whatever other OSes I want in convenient VMs. This motherboard could not have been more perfect for the job. VMware ESXi 5.5u1 is installed to a flash drive plugged into the internal motherboard connector, and ESXi recognizes all of the hardware in the system (both NICs, both chipset SATA and the LSI SAS controller, also all temp/fan/voltage sensors show up in VMware hardware info.)

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds more docs

Pros: Mostly a fine board. Seems solid-ish. IPMI works well although you need to have Java installed to view the screen and press keys, bummer.

Cons: Doesn't tell you which of the 5 headers you should plug the CPU fan into, so it knows which fan to speed up when your CPU gets hot. The answer appears to be "FanA". Doesn't like 4-pin fans that spin slower than 800RPM; it will cycle the fan speed 3-4 times a minute. No rear USB3. Takes a while to boot through all of the different chips that need initializing.

Other Thoughts: Besides looking for updates for the BIOS and IPMI, also look for updates for the LSI SAS controller (you want IR firmware unless you know you want IT for a particular reason).

Get RAM off of their validated memory list on their site, even if it means buying elsewhere. Just getting RAM that is ECC, unregistered, and the right speed isn't good enough.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 Header fell off

Pros: Onboard LSI & full length PCI slot for various uses compared to older Super Micro motherboards.

Cons: USB 3.0 Header came off with the cable when I moved the motherboard to a new case. Header appears to be a pressed fit and is not secured to the motherboard with any adhesives.

Other Thoughts: I use this motherboard in a FreeNAS installation so the front panel 3.0 header isn't a dealbreaker. Having built a few USB 3.0 motherboards I know the front case cable is a tight fit, but I was surprised removing the cable pulled the header off the motherboard. I would hope it had some form of glue to reinforce the header from being pulled off. I have read of other manufacturer motherboard headers having similiar issues.

I flashed the LSI to IT mode very easily following online documentation.

I gave the motherboard a 4/5 for this reason. Most people post bad reviews because they don't understand they're doing.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board for virtualization

Pros: For a home lab, I have provisioned this board for Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V with:

Xeon E3-1230V3
16GB Kingston KVR16E11/8
Intel SSD for system drive
4 WD20ERFX drives in RAID10 using embedded RAID firmware.

There are an assortment of other drives also connected to the board, but the motherboard has plenty of SATA ports for this purpose.

So far the system is running stable and boots quite fast. No problems or errors with the Kingston RAM.

Cons: The IPMI viewer requires Java, which is annoying. I am also having trouble getting external drives connected to the USB3 header through a motherboard connector cable, although the onboard USB3 port works.

Other Thoughts: Note that the SuperDoctor 3 software is listed under the motherboard driver download page, but SuperDoctor 5 can also be installed and works fine. (You have to use a corporate E-mail address domain to get to the download link.) One of the differences between the versions is that Version 5 supports secure SMTP servers for e-mail alerts, so it enabled me to use an external e-mail service.

The latest video driver (AST2400) version 0.98.01 just added support for Windows Server 2012 R2 and can be downloaded directly from ASPEED.

5 out of 5 eggsGreeat for FreeNAS

Pros: 8 on-board SAS ports plus SATA2 and SATA3 ports.
Plenty of 4-pin headers for case fans
Sensors for "everything"
Remote control and monitoring via IPMI
Supports ECC RAM (only)

Cons: Can't alter Fan speed thresholds (or others either, probably) in BIOS setup -- had to use freeipmi (and only multiples of 150rpm seem to be acceptable). I wish I could take off half an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: I am using this with an E3-1230V3 CPU.

The day after I ordered this together with two 8GB modules of the Kingston-recommended RAM, Kingston took the 8GB ones off their recommended list; their tech support told me there had been reports of ECC errors when using four such modules. Unknown at this stage whether the problem is with the motherboard or with the RAM.

I'm using only two 8GB modules and have seen no problems

4 out of 5 eggsgreat board, LSI Drivers no where to be found

Pros: solid board, lots of features.

Cons: Took me forever to find Windows x64 drivers for the embedded LSI card. Ended up finding some on Dell's website for a different card with the same chipset.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for a home server

Pros: Loads of features make it a great all purpose home server. Micro-ATX allows you to build it into smaller enclosures. Dual *Intel* nics and a dedicated IPMI port allows you to run the box headless. Built in LSI SAS adapter for a total of 14 SATA ports.

Cons: Some weird design / layout decisions on the part of supermicro.

-The 4-pin cpu fan header is in the far corner of the board next to the SATA ports.

- The onboard USB plug is very close to the cpu/heatsink. If you are using a larger USB stick then it will probably interfere with anything but a stock intel cooler.

Also, my board shipped with a newer version of the BIOS than what is available on Supermicro's support site. Not a big deal, but worry some if the need to re-flash the bios arrises.

If you are used to fine tuning BIOS settings in high end consumer motherboards, you'll need to adjust your expectations. Supermicro builds boards for stability and 24/7 operation, so you're likely to find much less customization than a gaming board.

Other Thoughts: I'm running this as a FreeNAS 9.1.1 server with jails for Plex / Pfsense etc.

You'll need to flash the LSI adapter bios to IT mode if you want to pass the drives to the OS in HBA mode. Highly recommended if you plan to run FreeNAS / ZFS / or any other software RAID configuration.

Overall, this board is a great value. It's incredibly difficult to beat the feature/cost ratio of this board. If you have not used IPMI, you'll find it quite finicky, but an incredibly useful tool at the same time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood board for lots of disks

Pros: If you were just going to end up buying a motherboard and PCIE SAS adapter, then this gets you the same thing, but cheaper. Out of the box, without any additional cards, expanders, multipliers, etc, this board can run 14 drives.

Cons: I might have slightly cleaner cabling, if the SAS ports were just two SFF-8087 connectors rather than eight SATA connectors.

Other Thoughts: Drivers for the onboard ethernet were added to Linux in version 3.5. If you're getting this board as an upgrade to an existing system, you might need to update your kernel. Ubuntu 12.04 users in particular, should read up on "LTS Hardware Enablement Stack."

Flashed the SAS adapter to "IT mode" from the UEFI shell, using files downloaded from Supermicro's site. This was utterly painless and drama-free.

I'm using this in a Lian Li PC-D8000, but I can easily imagine that this may be the board that Norco RPC-4224 users are looking for, too.
