5 out of 5 eggsSuperMicro Server/Workstation Budget Board

Pros: Slew of onboard (and seperate-chip onboard) SATA connectors, supports ECC and non-ECC RAM, Intel Vpro, hardware watchdog, many PCI-E slots

Cons: Would have preferred additional PCI-E 8x / 16x slots, but I knew how many it had going in. Doesn't warrant docking an egg.

Other Thoughts: Using this board with an Intel Xeon 1230v3 with memory Crucial Model CT2KIT102472BD160B, and a mix of SSD's and platter-drives.

This motherboard works flawlessly with Gentoo. Redhat. Fedora, Ubuntu and CentOS linux. I imagine it'd work fine with any other linux as well. Currently runs Gentoo with a 3.15 kernel, zero issues. I even got Intel Vpro's Serial-over-Lan working with a serial console for OS-independent access.

Windows hasn't touched this motherboard, so I can't speak as to it's compatibility there; but I'm sure it works fine given Supermicro's track record.

Intel Vpro is a bit different than IPMI, but you'll feel right at home very quickly if you have any familiarity with IPMI interfaces and management. To get your feet wet with Vpro features, I recommend "Radmin" administration software or Intel's own "Manageability Commander Tool".

Currently a Gentoo-based KVM hypervisor with pretty phenomenal performance given its price range. Currently runs 8 Virtual Machines without a hitch and is as stable as a table.

My only gripe is that Intel Vpro tech isn't compatible with IPMI software and vice versa, as far I can tell. But that said, the Vpro features and remote management work without issue and integrate into Linux fairly well.

4 out of 5 eggsDid my homework on this one

Pros: 3 displays and 4 ways to connect them. Good NIC controllers. ECC.

Cons: No PCI-E 2.0 slots, but none were needed. 3 PCI-E x1 slots is too many and PCI 32Bit slots are useless in todays market.

Other Thoughts: I have some issues with the PCI config on the board but the fact is that it is a server MB and I have no need for a GPU in a server. The 2 PCI-E 3.0 x16 (and x8 in an x16 slot) are sufficient if I change my mind and also work with Gen3 hardware RAID Controllers. When compared directly with the other server boards available with socket 1150, this one wins.

4 out of 5 eggsLinux and Windows

Pros: Handles ECC Parity Memory
Dual 10 GIG Ethernet capable in Windows - though I'm currently limited by 1 Gigabit network switch and everything else being 1 Gigabit. I set up with a Dual boot where selection is made on Windows startup where I select Windows, or Caldera Linux a high end Color Rip to drive a 60 inch high end Color printer selling for almost as much as our car when new.

Cons: Used a separate Intel Gigabit network Card for Caldera as Linux drivers not yet compiled for the onboard dual 10 Gigabit network card.
Only 1 year Warranty -though have not needed yet, I prefer to buy 5 year to lifetime warranted components.

Did not use the onboard Video as again drivers were only good to 1280x1024 for Caldera Linux but instead used a separate NVidea video that was supporting dual monitors with stock Caldera 1980 x 1024 per monitor

Other Thoughts: No Crashes with mainstream programs or Linux using Windows 8, I did demo another APPE color RIP that Ran under Windows instead of Caldera Linux but it would lock up several times a day - I ascribe that to the buggy software or running it under Windows 8 instead of 7 versus the no crash Caldera.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with FreeBSD 10

Pros: It's fast.
It has a ton of good features for small to medium servers.
ECC memory support.
Sturdy. Not as sturdy as my Supermicro 386 board (that thing was made of stone or something) but stiffer than the average board.
ZFS cares not for the RAID issues people have been complaining about in the other reviews. Hardware RAID is for inferior filesystems (grin).
FreeBSD supports it no problems (but see other thoughts).

Cons: It has a header for firewire, but Supermicro doesn't sell the plug for it and I can't find anyone who does. Not really a con since I don't use it myself, but if I wanted to I'd be stuck buying an add-on card.
This thing uses more mounting holes than a regular ATX. Make sure you have enough standoffs for your case. Again, not really a con, just something to bear in mind.

Other Thoughts: I haven't got around to testing IPMI, the TPM functionality, or the two non-Intel SATA ports. I use ZFS to raid the six Intel SATA ports, so I haven't tested the hardware RAID (I'd be stupid to, really, since ZFS doesn't need it). It's a server, so I haven't tested audio or X on the built-in video, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Don't buy this if you just want ECC for ZFS. The whole "ZFS needs ECC" thing is a myth. The lead developer of ZFS recommends it for non-ECC boards because ZFS has very good error correction capabilities. Still, ECC certainly doesn't hurt, and this is a nice board, so if you've got the extra cash to spend then go for it.

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.
