5 out of 5 eggs Great for ESXi 5.5 02/18/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: -8 Core CPU
-4 Gib C2000 NICs
-1 dedicated IPMI LAN
-32 Gib RAM
-Form Factor
-USB 3.0

Cons: -USB 3.0 not reconised by ESXi 5.5
-NIC compadibility for ESXi 5.5
-No SD or mSATA slot Hypervisor install

Other Thoughts: Need to download NIC drivers from https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESXI55-INTEL-IGB-5051&productId=353 and integrate VIB with ESXi customizer. Used LSI MegaRAID SAS 9341-4i for data-store adaptor. Got RAM from http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=B001468AA5CA7304 and used LSI MegaRAID SAS 9341-4i as data-store adaptor in a ARK ITX/CS-CI03 Black Mini ITX Server Chassis.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Fantastic as Mr. Fox! 09/06/2011

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667

Pros: IPMI and on board USB slot that no one can access without opening the case. 6x SATA ports for packing a Lian Li PC-Q08B case with hard drives.

Cons: Price a bit high for a atom processor board that only allows 4Gb DDR2 PC667. The CPU heatsink is super chincy and does not cool the CPU very well for a $200+ server motherboard. IPMI has issues reading RPM from fans.

Other Thoughts: Using this with FreeNAS 7.02 (8 sucks and offers no media serving capabilities). Build is Lian Li PC-Q08B (case), Mushkin 996618 (RAM), WD Green WD20EARS (6xHDDs), Some bronze 80 PSU 320W, OCZSSDPX-1RVD0050 (OS SSD). I had to knock an egg off for the heatsink issue and RAM limit. Heatsink is that important for server class.
