3 out of 5 eggsnot very reliable boot process

Pros: Everything I was looking for.

Cons: I have had issues with this bios since day one. It has even gotten completely stuck such that I had to download a recovery from their website and use a USB drive to get back up and running. Every time I have to make even a minor change I fear the whole thing could stop working again. Amazingly bad.

I have also had issues with the ethernet ports coming up in a different order as I add hard drives to the machine. I have always heard that adding hardware COULD affect the order devices power on, but I have never actually seen it in action. While assembling this server, I had to swap my ethernet ports multiple times. Now that I have all my drives in, it has been consistent. Still I have never seen this ACTUALLY happen in a machine until this board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Linux Server Board

Pros: Board worked the first time.

Nice having the USB 3.0 ports on the back. LAN ports work well.

6 (RAID 0,1, 5, 10) + 2 SATA 6.0Gb/s connections. Plentiful PCI-E slots as well as old school PCI...will find something to put in them...

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought as a combo with Intel Xeon E3-1275V3. Purchased two ECC 8 GB sticks of Kingston KVR16E11/8I thanks to the advice of a previous reviewer (Nicolas S.), threw it all together along with some SAMSUNG 840 EVO 250 GB SSDs and out came a perfect Linux VM server beast.

For those that complain about 2 of the SATA connections not being able to join the RAID configuration of the other SATA connections: well, try reading a manual next time. You would have known that the other 2 connections are not able to RAID with each other or anything else. Section 2-10.

1 out of 5 eggsMisled information

Pros: Extra 2 SATA ports compare to ASUS MB.

Cons: Those two extra ports doesn't support RAID as the product desciption says.
The Newegg product description says “Additional SATA RAID 0/1” for ASM1061. But it doesn't support RAID on those two ports. I did some research on newegg and Supermicro, both website says ASM1061 surports RAID 0/1.
I contacted Supermicro regarding the issue but the customer service just shrugged the issue off and only said it doesn't support RAID. They even don't admit their error and has no intention to correct it. They just want to make sale by providing non existing features.

Other Thoughts: I purchase the MB mainly because of the extra raid ports with XEON 1275v3 as combo and I can't just return the MB to get the discount on CPU. Can Newegg do something to correct the error and ask supermicro to compensate customers?

5 out of 5 eggsBleeding Edge Server

Pros: Supports Xeon E3 Haswell and ECC memory

Cons: New chipset means drivers not available on older OS versions.

Other Thoughts: No hardware problems, only user and software issues. Initially bought wrong Xeon processor, need one with graphics builtin.

Running VmWare ESX and Debian Linux. Still haven't gotten SR-IOV (VT-d) to work with VmWare, not sure why. Only one of the two Lan ports is supported by older kernels. Got everything working with Linux 3.10.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent board

Pros: - Lots of SATA ports (6 from chipset, 2 from ASMedia controller)
- Several PWM fan connectors
- Plenty of front panel connectivity
- C226 chipset, works with integrated GPU in the Core i3/i5/i7 or Xeon's xxx5 series CPUs

Cons: - UEFI boot only works from chipset SATA controller - UEFI boot from the two ASMedia ports is not supported
- BIOS update procedure is a little more complicated than normal, and making a mistake can brick the board
- SATA ports are close to the second PCI-E slot, not a huge deal but the cables will definitely get warmed by the GPU exhaust

Other Thoughts: Some users have noted it spins up low-RPM fans. This is because it thinks the fans are failing - the minimum fan speed can be configured via SuperDoctor III to avoid this issue. Note that SuperDoctor III not supported on Linux.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not purchase this board!

Pros: Plenty of SATA connections

Cons: Where do I start. I had to RMA my first board to Supermicro and installed the new MB. Now this MB has failed. I installed Server 2012 updates and rebooted the server, now it will not boot past the Supermicro Post screen. I am not sure what is wrong with this board but it is far from solid.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: On-board SATA ports work great. I am currently running the OS SSD and the CD player (only for installation ) off the AT ports, while the 6 remaining ports are filled with 2TB HDD in RAID 5 (through the motherboard). RAID was built quickly and has handled many TBs of data transfer so far.

A couple of USB 3.0 ports on the back is a nice addition, and the PCI slots were an advantage for me.

The system doctor software works fine for my windows build. I can't speak for other OS's though.

Cons: With no keyboard attached, the board will report an error with 5 beeps at post. But this can be disabled, just caught me off guard after the build.

The included SATA cables are a bit long, so you might have to buy shorter ones depending on your case.

It took the board a couple of restarts in order to detect additional RAID cards, Windows would give an error 10 Cannot start device until I changed the security settings in the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: The legacy PCI slots let me use a cheap ( though not as cheap as PCIe x1 ) video card and and an old SATA 2.0 card at the bottom of my case. This gives my other RAID card plenty of room for proper air flow.

Mine came with a driver CD and the detailed manual is posted on their website.

As mentioned, this board will have no video output if you use a Xeon processor. The cheap PCI 1.0 card was my solution to this, as I will rarely need to directly plug in to view anything besides BIOS changes/upgrades.

If you already have legacy PCI cards, this board is a great way to save a little cash.

Great value and variety on this board for a single processor build.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: - I am assuming if/when i get a working MB, it will be good but since I don't have one that works, I can't say...

Cons: - defect cpu socket - bent pins

Other Thoughts: What I am annoyed about here is the fact that I was shipped a defective MB that supermicro themselves had identified as defective. How do I know this ? there were stickers on the cpu socket pins indicating that there were issues... How it left super micro i don't know... hence poor quality control comment. Now to add insult to injury, newegg wants me to pay to ship the MB back. Yes, I know they state this in the faq page, but since i never had to return something before to newegg, I assumed that RMA for defects would be covered... NOPE! I also contacted SuperMicro support to see if I could RMA through them... their response was - since I bought it from newegg i need to go through new egg. Again, never had a manufacture point me back to a merchant for their own product.

In the end, i received a dud MB that is going to cost me over $33 to return and get a replacement. All of this because there was a break down in quality control. If my luck continues, i will probably get another bad MB and go through the process again, costing me yet more money and time... Frustrating to say the least.

Long story short I would recommend people only buy SuperMicro products from local dealers in case you have issues, that way you won't be affected by expensive shipping fees should you be affected by poor quality.

1 out of 5 eggsReally rough RMA experience

Pros: ECC support, lots of SATA connections

Cons: Repair support nightmare, doesn't properly handle low RPM fans

Other Thoughts: Had to "RMA" the board due to a failed BIOS update. It's now been in their shop for A MONTH. Worst part was being charge $50 to repair a bent pin which would never had happened if the BIOS update had worked properly.

Also, avoid truly low RPM 4-pin fans. At somewhere around 800 rpms, the motherboard thinks the fan has failed and "panics" and ramps the fan up to max RPM's even though the temperature hasn't changed by a single degree. It goes through the cycle every 10 seconds or so. Tech Support is not specific as to the precise minimum RPM fan you should use to avoid this.

5 out of 5 eggsworks as expected

Pros: works as expected. no fuss. no-nonsense bios. just install & enojoy. ECC support actually works, unlike certain other manufactuer's "workstation" boards.

Cons: not crazy about the 2 legacy PCI slots. do we really still need these? i'd rather have additional PCIe slots.

Other Thoughts: now that we can get integrated video right on the processor, why do manufacturers still bother including a superio chip for VGA and legacy PCI???
