1 out of 5 eggsBad NICs

Pros: Pending...

Cons: The built-in NICs won't connect at 1000Mbps, only 100M.

When physically connected with a known-good cable (tried Cat 5E and Cat6, known to connect at 1000M), to a known-good port, NIC activity lights up briefly and then goes off, then on, then off, repeatedly. This happens immediately with system power applied, where the NICs should be establishing a link for pre-primary-operating system functionality (not related to primary OS).

This only happens when attempting to connect to a gigabit switch/port. Connection to a 10/100 megabit switch does work. I've tried the following with three different ethernet switches:

Managed gigabit switch with port set to 1000M no link
Managed gigabit switch with port set to 100M link
Unmanaged gigabit switch no link
Unmanaged 10/100M switch link

Resetting CMOS didn't help.

Will update if/when Supermicro support replies to my email.

1 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 64 bit VGA driver doesn't exist

Pros: It's small

Cons: Bought this for my son for Christmas. I wanted to start him out with Windows 7 so I made sure there were device drivers listed on the Supermicro site. After he opened on Christmas morning, we added RAM and an HD and connected the box to power and a monitor. Then we started installing Windows. Device driver installation went smoothly until we got to the VGA driver. It wouldn't install and I was getting an error stating that the computer didn't meet the minimum requirements of the software. I tried to get the correct driver from Intel but that wouldn't work either. I called Supermicro and was told that the driver I was trying to install was too old. The support agent directed me to a newer version of the driver on their FTP site and told me to call back if that didn't work. It was not an option for him to wait on the phone while I tried the install, which failed with the same error. So, I called back. The guy who answered the phone this time asked me to try another driver, which I did. He waited on the phone with me this time and, when this install failed, he asked me to send an e-mail to for help from one of their engineers. I sent this e-mail with the motherboard model number and requested screenshot on 12/26, the day after Christmas, and have not received a response yet. It's been about 20 days. Since I bought the box on 11/24/13 and did not think to test it before 12/25/13, the window to return to Newegg has expired. I guess I'll have to try to get more help from Supermicro but, given the terrible support experiences so far, I doubt I'll get anywhere.

1 out of 5 eggsSupermicro tech support is awful

Pros: The dimensions were correct.

Cons: I had the idea to use this as a computer for my 9 year old to do some school work on and maybe learn to code. I figured I'd start him with Windows so, the first thing I did when researching this box was check compatibility. I found Windows 32 and 64 bit drivers for audio, graphics, USB, etc. So, I went ahead with the purchase.

My son opened this on Christmas morning and we added the HD and RAM and plugged it into a monitor together. Then, I showed him how to install an operating system (yeah...Christmas is fun at our house). The Windows install and driver installs went smoothly until we came to the VGA driver installation. I kept getting an error, "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software."

I thought Supermicro had just linked to the wrong driver so I went to the Intel site and ran their little Java program to identify my graphics chip and give me the correct driver. An hour later, it still wasn't finished. I rebooted and started the process over again. We needed to get to my sister's house so I just let it run. We came home about 7 hours later and it was still running.

So, the next day, I call Supermicro support. The guy who answers tells me that the version of the driver I had downloaded was very old and directs me to their FTP site. He tells me which driver to download and says if I have any more trouble to just call back. He doesn't even offer to wait while I try it. I try the installation with the newly downloaded driver and get the same error. So I call back. The guy who answers this time has me download yet another version of the driver but waits until I've tried it. I get the same error again.

He tells me to send a screenshot of the error to I sent the requested e-mail including the motherboard model number and a screenshot of the error. I haven't heard back from them yet. I was two days past the Newegg 30 day return policy when the box was opened. I should know by now that you always open the box as soon as you get it. I guess I'll try to get $$ back from Supermicro but I'm probably just going to have to take the hit. I'll have to repurpose this thing. Supermicro should not have drivers listed for a product if they aren't compatible with it.
