This review is from: SUPERMICRO X9SRE-3F ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: Runs my 6-core Xeon like clock work extremely silently courtesy of water cooling (workstation build). Nice to have IPMI and PCI-X built into the board which were my chief buying points. I'm also a fan of having 8 RAM slots.
Cons: The board works fine except for some reason my DDR3 1600 RAM is recognized as DDR3 1333 even when I force it to DDR3 1600 MHz in the BIOS, but everything else works fine. I'm going to try a BIOS update and see if that fixes the issue.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Does not pass the trim command aka discard due to a short coming of the firmware. Tech support was specifically not helpful and informed me there were NO PLANS to support TRIM/discard in the future.
Other Thoughts: If you are not using SSD's this controller is fine, I'm just trying to help the next guy who wastes his money on hardware from a company who claims they have no intention of modernizing a 6GB/s SAS HBA card to support a modern feature set.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When I bought the processor, I thought it had the processor extensions for virtualization, turns out I was wrong. Still, this is a good bang for your buck setup if you don't need virtualization.
Cons: Contrary to what one reviewer said, there is no built in virtualization extensions. For most people this is not an issue.READ FULL REVIEW
