1 out of 5 eggs Do Not purchase this board! 12/14/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SAE-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600

Pros: Plenty of SATA connections

Cons: Where do I start. I had to RMA my first board to Supermicro and installed the new MB. Now this MB has failed. I installed Server 2012 updates and rebooted the server, now it will not boot past the Supermicro Post screen. I am not sure what is wrong with this board but it is far from solid.

3 out of 5 eggs Issues with Server 2012R2 11/03/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SAE-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600

Pros: Great design. There are plenty of SATA connections available and support for USB 3.0

Cons: Supermicro does not have the Server 2012R2 downloads available for the motherboard. I am having issues with the SATA AHCI Controller when creating storage pools. You can create the pools but the server freezes when you create the virtual drives. It makes it through 4 of the 5 steps and freezes when it configures the cache. The OS recolonizes the chipset as C220 not C226. So I am pretty sure that is where the issue is.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard will be rock solid once they release the Drivers for Server 2012R2.

Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap drive for the size

Cons: I ordered 4 and 1 of the drives failed within 72 hours

Other Thoughts: Not a bad drive if you are installing it in a RAID array. I installed the four drives in a Netgear ReadyNAS. Performance is good but one of the drives failed in 72 hours. Since the RMA process is long I will have to purchase a new drive locally to ensure my data protection.
