This review is from: Intel S3200SHV Server Motherboard LGA 775 Intel 3200 DDR2 800
Pros: * 6 sata ports
* Intel LAN
* Intel board
Cons: * Price
* Onboard graphics doesn't work in OpenSolaris 2008.11
* Somewhat slow POST. Maybe ~20 sec. Not a huge deal in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: Used this board to make home fileserver with OpenSolaris 2008.11 and ZFS. I love the Intel LAN and the 6 sata ports because it's a fileserver.
The onboard graphics did not work in OpenSolaris 2008.11. I don't know if it will be supported in 2009.06. Intel's OS doc says you can apply a fix to the graphics config to make it work, but I couldn't get it to work. Don't even try installing OSOL without a dedicated graphics card. I bought an MSI N8400GS-TD256 GeForce 8400, which works well. OSOL sucks, ZFS rocks.
