Needs to ship with v2 BIOS 08/19/2012
This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-T Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1333/1066
Nice motherboard, works exactly as expected. Well constructed case. Very quiet. I'm really quite happy with it.
It shipped with the v1.x BIOS that doesn't support Ivy Bridge CPU's. After experiencing the "SuperMicro 4 beeps at power up" issue, I had to buy a Celeron G440 Sandy Bridge CPU to flash the BIOS in order to use the Xeon I ordered with it. All that added a week to the build and a $40 "tax" for the Celeron.
The motherboard didn't want to register all of the memory the first couple times it powered up, but after re-seating the DIMM's, everything works like a champ.
If you're going to advertise that something works with Ivy Bridge CPU's, it should work out of the box with them.
