2 out of 5 eggsSo close, and yet...

Pros: great features and very reliable, at least what works.
I had this running Hyper-V 2012 and Server 2012 Essentials for over a year with very few issues. The PCI-e arrangement allows full use of the available channels from both CPU, with one CPU its limited.

The IPMI is great and works well for remote administration.

Cons: No advanced replacement for manufacturing defect.

The LSI SAS Controller never worked, assumed at first it was my problem and since I needed all IT SATA devices, used an add-in card. Then purchased some SAS drives and it still wouldn't recognize the controller, reporting an error in the BIOS and not visible in Hyper-V or LSI Storage Manager.

Also, after some months of running the board I installed a VGA card to support RemoteFX and discovered that there was no video out, either from the onboard VGA or from the add-in card. Card was recognized in Hyper-V and i was able to configure Remote-FX. No local display ever though.

I requested an RMA and was informed that Supermicro knows of the problem, its a manufacturing defect but they refuse to do an advance replacement.

Further, they repeatedly promise to return e-mails or phones calls and never do. The online RMA request never sent me an RMA number, then called and they gave it to me, promising to escalate the request for advanced replacement and would let me know in email. Nothing... Called them back and again, a promise to get back to me, nothing. Weeks went by with no response. Asked for an estimate of how long to repair they had no idea.

Terrible customer service, had to go buy another board to get this repaired. So I can't recommend SuperMicro to anyone that can't live without their board for who knows how long.. Who can live without their server for an indefinite period of time?

4 out of 5 eggsWon't POST? Unplug the VGA

Pros: We've had two of these boards for about three months now running ESXi 5.5 and they're AWESOME! Dual 10Gb NICs are always nice, plenty of RAM slots.

Cons: Won't POST unless the VGA cable is unplugged from our old KVM switch. And based on another review here, I feel a bit vindicated because of how silly it felt when the stupid thing actually booted successfully after unplugging it. Will be reaching out to Supermicro and fully expect their RMA department to get me squared away quickly.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get RECTANGULAR HEAT SINKS for the CPU's - not the traditional square shape. Also, your power supply needs TWO 8-pin connectors (6+2 connectors will NOT work - it needs to be either 4+4 or 8).

4 out of 5 eggsPITA

Pros: Many Sata Ports, SAS, High speed network, Network Management

Cons: Would not POST! This drove me up the wall seeing I tried multiple processors, RAM and disconnected every thing. Well everything other than the VGA!

For some reason this board didn't want to support my test bench monitor as it is a "Legacy Model". Unplugged it, connected via the remote console and BAM!

Also note that the heatsink is a non-square type. Your standard Heatsink will not fit.

If you have any mobile hot-swap bays, purchase some SAS to Mini-SAS cables.

Other Thoughts: dual E5 2620, 128GB ECC RAM, 16 256GB Intel SSD, 8 4TB WD Red, 2 Intel Raid Cards.

Would purchase this board again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood larger than it should be... not compatible with older chasis

Pros: 10gbe -- The nics will cost $500 if purchased seperately.
lots of ram.
Tons of storage options.
lsi 2208 is a nice controller. Makes sense if you want to do raid. For JBOD type configurations like ZFS it gets more complicated.
IPMI remote management is built in

Cons: LSI 2208 does not have IT firmware to my knowledge... Hard to figure out how to put it in jbod mode.
Not a standard form factor.
Works with but not directly compatible with older super micro chasis.

Other Thoughts: I like supermicro. Their warranty is absolutely the worst though... If you receive a bad product return it to the distributor. They are terribly bad. Will always charge for a repair, will take forever to repair the item.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed impressions

Pros: Did work with dual Xeons, and supported 128 Gigs of ram at 1600 MHz. Has survived about a day of stress test with no memory errors.

Cons: Poorly organized bios lacking basic features. Appears to have an incompatibility with Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory DR x4 Intel Model KVR16R11D4/8I, in that the RAM does not seem to work as ECC RAM. At least not according to memcheck86. But memcheck86 could be wrong, or so I read online. It would be nice if the BIOS said something about whether the RAM was ECC or not, but it doesn't. I called supermicro tech support but they don't answer their phones it seems.

Another bad problem is that the motherboard doesn't really fit in an E-ATX case, which is what I believe it was supposed to fit into. So for the first time in my career, I could not find a computer case to properly support the board. Right now it is flopping around with a few screws missing. But it is working at least.

Overall I'm disappointed, but at least I have a working system, and there's a chance it is in fact using the memory as ECC RAM. And supermicro really needs to provide better technical support if they expect people to pay top dollar for their products.
