5 out of 5 eggs Great motherboard, almost too many options. 07/11/2016

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-LN4F+-O Enhanced Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

Pros: I love the expansion slots and the sheer amount of room on the motherboard.

My setup:
2*Intel E5-2660 8-core Xeons
96GB Memory (24*4GB)
16*3TB Hard Drives ZFS RAID10
2*LSI 9211 8i HBA's
CSE-836TQ-R800B Case

Handles my VHD storage admirably. Might end up installing a few PCI-E SSDs for L2ARC down the road.

Cons: GIGANTIC BOARD. Make sure to doublecheck the size of motherboard that this is. The above supermicro case works wonderfully.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this motherboard if you can find it on sale, even though it's a little old, it is a fantastic board.

Pros: I replaced six 1TB drives with these in my FreeNAS file server, and.... these have worked fantastically.

Rock solid for the two weeks they've been installed / running.

Cons: Not SATAIII? Rotating Hard Drives can't saturate the SATAII bus, so that is hardly an issue.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to get around to benchmarking individual drives before installing them all into my file server.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Motherboards 02/10/2015

This review is from: ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've used four of these for assorted XenServer / ESXi / Hyper-V servers (1U / mini-towers) with quad gigabit intel NICs, and these things blow me away. (built a home lab with these)

VT-D works wonderfully, all of the visualization software works out of the box.
I've used a few different CPU's with these boards, to include: 2600k, G1610, 3330s, and G540. Each has worked fantastically.

The Network BIOS updating feature is a favorite.
To get Windows Deployment Services running properly, I had to add the Ethernet Drivers to my image, but that's to be expected.

Cons: I wish that the integrated NIC was Intel, and higher performing, but.... at this price point? I love everything.

Other Thoughts: If you're building a home lab, this board, a $40 celeron, 2*8GB sticks of memory, and a nice NIC goes a LONG way.
