5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard.

Pros: Great motherboard. Installed with E3-1231v3 and ESXi5.5. It works perfectly. I love this motherboard since it is completely headless (no physical KVM is needed).

Cons: Not really a con but if you want to upgrade the bios from IPMI, product key is needed and SuperMicro charges for it.

No need to buy another motherboard. Just follow the following link to create a bootable dos USB drive, download/expend bios from SuperMicro web site to the UCS drive and flash the bio from there.

Pros: Todd, you can update the bios from IPMI without a CPU and without booting. Try that and it should work with your 1231V3. That trick took me a while to find :).

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsAddendum to my review below

Pros: See below.

Cons: Same.

Other Thoughts: Forgot to mention two things :

1. Paired this with a Be Quiet! Pure Rock CPU cooler (not that it's that important);
2. This one WILL be important to you FreeNAS guys, though : RAM. I used the ubiquitous Crucial CT2KIT102472BD160B. You'll certainly have noted, if you've done your research, that the RAM QVL for this board (and all SuperMicro's that I researched, anyways!) is rather sparse, with names like Samsung, Micron and Hynix. Well - Crucial happens to be Micron's consumer brand! And, as per :

https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/ram-recommendations-for-supermicro-x10-lga1150-motherboards.23291/

That particular RAM I used is a re-brand of a Micron unit that IS on the QVL. It certainly worked for me without a hitch. Should you want to buy single DIMMs of it, the model designation is CT102472BD160B.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic board for FreeNAS

Pros: The X10 series of boards by SuperMicro are the go-to boards for a high-performance FreeNAS build, which is exactly what I wanted - and got! After having worked with consumer-grade hardware for years (this was my first foray into dedicated server-level hardware), it was a breath of fresh air to see the quality in this thing. Everything about it seems just a touch above consumer-grade stuff - from the checklist for box contents, to the one-page quickstart guide with all you really need, to a myriad other things - really nice stuff.

IPMI blew my socks off - it's awesome. (Yes, Java kinda blows - but hey...in this application, it works fine!) All fan headers are PWM, if you hadn't noticed yet (can take three-in just fine though).

Cons: Biggest thing I'd say is that, my above praise for the quickstart guide aside, they don't include a full-on printed manual. For that, you'll have to go online. And, if you're like me, you'll at least want to read the BIOS section of a mobo manual before attempting a build - I had always assumed they'd have a hard copy, so I did some online reading before my build. The manual is totally accessible and easy to get at on SuperMicro's web site, but just something to keep in mind. Certainly not something to dock an egg for though.

There is also the fans issue, detailed below. Very minor and quickly resolved, and I'm not willing to ascribe that directly to the board, as from my understanding, that's common in the server board world. If you're reading this (and have made it this far!), you've probably already heard about it, or will shortly (just keep going!).

Other Thoughts: Again, for those of you used to consumer-grade stuff and/or wanting to build a FreeNAS box with this, the board has a few peculiarities. First, I'd invite you to look over a forum poster's most excellent X10 Board FAQ on the FreeNAS forum :

https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/supermicro-x10-motherboard-faq.23332/

I did run into the issue, mentioned in thread above, of the fans spinning up to max RPM then slowing down. This happened about every 10-15 seconds or so. I was prepared, however. This link is available in the forum post above, but for your reference, here it is :

https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/how-to-change-sensor-thresholds-with-ipmi-using-ipmitool.23571/

He identifies two methods to change fan profiles in the first link; I chose the first one, using ipmitool. It worked fine after that.

1 out of 5 eggsNo BIOS support for E3-1231V3 CPU

Pros: Nice layout of MB.

Cons: Having an issue with the X10SLM+-F server motherboard at boot with the following hardware: Intel Xeon E3-1231V3 Haswell 3.4GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1150 Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600 CT2KIT102472BD160B Four (4) beeps at boot with the Supermicro BIOS screen Initializing system and either 55 or 15 in lower right corner. BIOS updated needed for CPU. Can not update without known CPU. Need to return and order Supermicro X10SL7-F-O MB. Thanks, Todd

Other Thoughts: Ordered a Supermicro X10SL7-F-O MB which others have installed with E3-1231V3 CPU

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate after a 4 months ownership

Pros: As mentioned in my previous review, excellent FreeNAS (FreeBSD) compatibility. I didn't want anything to do with hardware RAID, ZFS works best with JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks), with its built-in volume management. FreeNAS sees my SATA drives as JBOD - perfect.

Has an Internal USB port for plugging in a FreeNAS boot drive.

Cons: Minor issue with CPU fan controller. See "Other Thoughts" below.

Other Thoughts: I have a Zalmann CNPS9500AT CPU cooler attached to a Xeon E3-1220v3 (Intel TurboBoost disabled). Despite a CPU temp of only 20C and CPU load near zero, the Zalman fan would ramp up from 1400 RPM to 2600 RPM, resulting in significantly more noise. The fan would stay at these elevated speeds for 10-15 minutes at a time. This is with the CPU fan connector plugged into the FAN1/CPU motherboard header. Changing the Fan Mode in the IPMI interface does not solve CPU fan ramping.

I moved the CPU connector over to the FAN4 motherboard connector and it has run now for several hours at a quiet 1400 RPM.

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.)

A bit of googling turned up the necessary info to flash the onboard LSI SAS to IT mode, which was fairly easy, and allows the OS to see the disks directly (rather than going through RAID.) ESXi easily passed the SAS controller and the 5 connected WD Reds through to my FreeBSD VM, which is sharing the ZFS pool on those disks out via Samba, NFS, and iSCSI. Disk performance is just as fast in this configuration as it was running on bare metal -- copy speeds over a gigabit network approach wire speed (about 90MB/sec.)

Running configuration as reviewed:
- this motherboard
- Intel Xeon E3-1230v3
- 2x8GB Crucial DDR3 1600 ECC (CT2KIT102472BD160B)
- Kingston 4GB USB 3.0 flash drive (as if it matters, haha)
- VMware ESXi 5.5, update 1

5 out of 5 eggsGreat FreeNAS board

Pros: -Works great out of the box with FreeNAS 9.2.1.6 (based off of FreeBSD 9.2)
-IPMI over a separtate dedicated ethernet port, for headless operation.
-ECC support. I used 4x8GB Crucial 1.35v DDR1600 CT2KIT102472BD160B
-Memory temps, and numerous other system temps available over the IPMI interface
-Onbord USB3 port, for installing a USB boot drive. Frees up a SATA port for FreeNAS.
-Extensive settings in the BIOS. Different power profiles for my Xeon E3 1220 v3 CPU.
-Dual gigabit Intel NICs for link aggregation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My install was painless. I have no caveats to offer. It just worked. It's a no nonsense server board built for continuous server duty. It's fully supported by FreeBSD and fits the bill for me perfectly.
