Pros: This is a good server motherboard. I'm using it at home with W2008R2. It runs Hyper-V with no problems at all. I'm running a mix of Linux and Windows virtual machines. The RAID on the motherboard works as advertised, both through the BIOS and through the operating system. I'm running 16 gigs of RAM right now and I'd like to upgrade to 32 gigs at some point.
Cons: Occasionally, this motherboard will act like it does not want to boot. This has happened to me after a power loss, after my UPS has run out of power. This boot problem has also happened to me after a disk in a RAID set fails and I replace it. The lights on the motherboard will come on but nothing else will happen. After breaking out into a cold sweat and trying many different combinations, I found that this motherboard likes it if you switch the power all the way off at the power supply, then turn it on, then push the power switch that connects to the jumpers on the motherboard.
Other Thoughts: For a home server, this has been a fine solution. Without the booting oddities, this would be perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
