Cons: Worked for the first day, nothing day 2. No manual in the box so I'm guessing how to attemp re-pairing. No manual on the Gigabyte web site that I can find. 44.64 MB driver for a MOUSE???READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS PIKE 2008 Flexible Storage Options for End Users
Pros: Easy to set up, just works. 6 Kingston HyperX SSDs running like a champ. Doesn't take a normal PCIE slot.
Cons: PIKE slot in my Z9PE-D16/2L is Gen3x4, which is 4GBytes/sec peak theoretical. I should have checked the LSI chipset details before I bought it. If I had seen it was Gen2, I would have passed. ATTO peaks out at 1.5 GBytes/sec with 6 Kingston HyperX SSDs. More than 3 is a waste.
Other Thoughts: PIKE 2208 uses a Gen3x8 for 8 GB/sec peak, but limited to 4 in PIKE slot. Still the wrong answer. Skipping PIKE, going for x8 PCIE slot card and a real controller.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D16/2L SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
Pros: Difficult to ascertain - ASUS Live Chat Support says the motherboard is dead.
Cons: DOA - Nothing is connected except the power supply (24+8+8), one CPU (E5-2665) in CPU1, CPU fan and one ECC/Registered 1600 DIMM in A1. CATT LED comes on (fatal or catastrophic error) and Q-Code LED doesn't move from 00. I've tried a bunch of different DIMMS (registered and not, ECC and not, 1333 and 1666), 2 processors and resetting the CMOS, all to no avail.READ FULL REVIEW
