5 out of 5 eggs FABULOUS Motherboard 01/01/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-C7Z87-O ATX Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel Z87 DDR3 1600

Pros:

Socket 1150 Intel Z87 chipset. 8 x SATA III 6.0GB ports, dual PCIe 3.0 X16 slots, 2 x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots and 2 standard PCI. Supports overclocking, standard ATX form factor. Supports 1.35v DDR3 1600 RAM.

Cons:

2 of the fan headers are on the rear of the motherboard near I/O port module on the board. This can make fan connection difficult if you have a deep server chassis such as an EATX pedestal chassis.

I haven't had luck yet getting the system to boot with a RAID controller in either of the x16 slots. I'm not sure yet if this is a BIOS setting that needs tweaking or what exactly. I'm using a Haswell 4770k chip and the on-chip 4600 graphics.

Other Thoughts:

I paired this board with Crucial low profile DDR3 1600 1.35v RAM and the Superchassis CSE-743T-665B. That model has the 4 x 5k fans in the midplane. The chassis has 8 hot swap SATA bays, which pairs nicely with the onboard SATA ports.

I had to get a pair of 4-pin fan extension cables to reach the 2 rear fan header connectors on the motherboard. No biggie.
