5 out of 5 eggs A little odd, but the price is right 09/08/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL+-F Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333

Pros:

IPMI, dual integrated Intel GigE, LSI and Intel integrated RAID, support for up to 32GB of RAM in a mini-atx board? do want.

Cons:

Initially had problems with RAM not working with this board. Bear in mind if you purchase this board, you need to use ECC Unbuffered RAM, ECC Registered will _NOT_ work with this board. I bought two 16GB kits of kingston ECC registered RAM and I got BIOS beep codes indicating there was no RAM available. Lovely. Had to RMA it, pay restocking and get unbuffered.

Would have liked to know what kind of RAM was compatible with this board prior to doing that. Went to kingston's memory compatibility site and eventually found that this board requires unbuffered ECC RAM if you want to do ECC on this board.

Software RAID is acting wonky with ESXi. The board is compatible with ESXi, but I'm having a hard time getting my dual terabyte seagate barracudas to make a RAID 1 that ESXi can use. ESXi just sees a bunch of disks (JBOD). Will update if I figure out what's wrong here or if the onboard RAID just doesn't work with ESXi 5

Other Thoughts:

pay attention to what RAM the board requires to work. I'm an IT guy through and through, but I made a rookie mistake, and so can you if you don't pay attention.
