SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

1 out of 5 eggs Disappointing on Many Levels 03/13/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Does what it says it will do.

Cons: for $500 it doesn't stretch the bounds of reason to include a driver DVD. IT should also be noted that if you want to fully support the motherboard in an ATX, E-ATX, or SSi-EEB case, then you will have to drill and tap holes where they go. The form factor on this item is inaccurate at Newegg. I bought two different cases, one Coolermaster HAF-X and an SSi-EEB compatible Phanteks. The supermicro website calls this an E-ATX, it also says it is an E-ATX motherboard on the back of the box, however it is an "Enhanced Extended ATX" form factor and regular cases will not work without modification. A few parts at your local hardware store and some time and you can get any E-ATX case to work, but it is a shame there is virtually no documentation and no included drivers with this board.

Win-7 does not recognize the Gigabit network adapter, so you will have to download the driver ISO off of the supermicro website and then burn it to a DVD to get the drivers onto your machine.

I will say, I plugged everything into the board, powered up, and Windows 7 installed without a single hiccup. However, for double the price of an ASUS motherboard, it ought to come with drivers and documentation included, in my opinion.

1 out of 5 eggs Form Factor is CUSTOM - Do NOT BUY!!! 03/13/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: I'm sure it would work nice, but I am going to have to buy a tap and die set and custom drill holes to accept the motherboard.

Cons: GIANT pain and frankly unacceptable. Neither SSI-EEB nor EATX cases (I tried one from Coolermaster and one from Phanteks and neither work.

Other Thoughts: This is Horse Manure. I called Supermicro and their technical support department told me their motherboards are all exactly the correct form factor. Complete baloney. Several holes on TWO $300 cases are off by inches.

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, lots of VRAM for rendering large videos

Cons: Fails, fails, fails.

Other Thoughts: When it does run, it runs great. I have been troubleshooting a seemignly random BSOD problem for the past two months as it has slowly gotten more and more frequent. Now I am at the point where if I try and render ANYTHING, my computer is brought to its knees. I bought the latest Intel CPU, a Sabertooth Z77, 16GB of Crucial RAM, and 4 SSD's so this machine would haul balls and this is just pitiful. In the RMA process right now.
