1 out of 5 eggs No 2012 Support?!? Illustration of what to expect from support? 09/04/2012

This review is from: ASUS P8B-E/4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 ECC UDIMM


-4 High Quality NICs
-2 RAID BIOS options
-Decent Layout


-No Server 2012 support!? (Confirmed on RTM)
-IPMI card and software is flaky. (Please note it's not included by default.)
-Bios options poorly illustrated

Other Thoughts:

Server 2012 beta was released on 3/1/2012, over 6 months ago. This should be more than enough time for a company committed to decent support to make sure the SETUP PROGRAM will... BOOT. I'll change my review when/if they add Server 2012.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are currently evaluating Windows 2012 support for our server motherboards. Please check back at a later time for more information at

Regarding IPMI support, we do have the optional ASUS ASMB5-iKVM module for this motherboard. It is IPMI 2.0 compliant, provides effective remote server management and has an OS-independent and cross-platform interface for monitoring the server system such as temperature, voltage, and Fan status etc. Please see here for more information:

If any BIOS options that are unclear and you would like an explanation, please contact me at reference #C1037-4246.
