This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
Pros: This board is great. I have it running Windows 2012 R2 with dual E5-2620 CPUs, 128 GB of RAM, an LSI MegaRAID 9261-8i, two dual port server NICs, and several hard drives and have had no issues.
Cons: As some reviewers noted earlier, make sure you get the narrow LGA 2011 cooler (SNK-P0050AP4, available on Newegg) as I am not sure standard LGA 2011 coolers would work. Also, the board is very large and won't fit in most cases. I have mine mounted in a Xigmatek Elysium and it worked pretty well, with only a couple of holes not lining up. For those, you can get the plastic or nylon standoffs which fit into the motherboard screw holes and lay flat against the bottom of the case.READ FULL REVIEW
