ASUS P8B-E/4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 ECC UDIMM

4 out of 5 eggs 2012 Support Fixed 12/18/2012

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

Pros: Good board after 2012 support has been fixed; it would be 5 eggs if the manuf. hadn't been caught with their pants down on a release so widely publicized. Using with 32GB of this ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239116 and no problems. IPMI "fat" application is flaky, but the web daemon is better anyhow. Works well with an IBM 5014 (LSI 9260) controller. Onboard NIC performance is stellar, and having a dedicated IPMI port is a welcome change from older boards from other manufacturers.

Cons: Sometimes when I'm sleeping I think the motherboard is watching me. Is that weird?

Other Thoughts: I'm still concerned about Asus' dedication to the server market and wouldn't deploy in production until they prove that they'll lead the way, but this is now a step in the right direction.

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

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

Cons: -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.

Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Upon installing this drive, Pat Benatar arrived in my office in a time machine straight from 1986. She showed me how to do that dance from "Love is a Battlefield" It was great.

Cons: She left.

Other Thoughts: In all seriousness, this is a little over-reviewed, so there isn't much of a need for detail. It's 500gb. It has average performance in it's class. It's reliable. I've had 4x of these in a 5EE array for awhile with no problems. Yay.
