Pros: Installed in a Supermicro X10SL7-F-O uATX Server Motherboard for virtualization. Seems to be running well.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I can run 5 virtual machines as once with this processor and it barely goes above 10% utilization. SLAT and AES extensions were a selling point for me, as well as power usage.
Other Thoughts: Installed this processor in a SuperMicro X10SL7-F-O uATX Server Motherboard. These products work very well together.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SL7-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600
Pros: For a home lab, I have provisioned this board for Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V with:
16GB Kingston KVR16E11/8
Intel SSD for system drive
4 WD20ERFX drives in RAID10 using embedded RAID firmware.
There are an assortment of other drives also connected to the board, but the motherboard has plenty of SATA ports for this purpose.
So far the system is running stable and boots quite fast. No problems or errors with the Kingston RAM.
Cons: The IPMI viewer requires Java, which is annoying. I am also having trouble getting external drives connected to the USB3 header through a motherboard connector cable, although the onboard USB3 port works.
Other Thoughts: Note that the SuperDoctor 3 software is listed under the motherboard driver download page, but SuperDoctor 5 can also be installed and works fine. (You have to use a corporate E-mail address domain to get to the download link.) One of the differences between the versions is that Version 5 supports secure SMTP servers for e-mail alerts, so it enabled me to use an external e-mail service.
The latest video driver (AST2400) version 0.98.01 just added support for Windows Server 2012 R2 and can be downloaded directly from ASPEED.
