This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-C7Z87-O ATX Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel Z87 DDR3 1600
Pros: We’ve been using Supermicro servers at the office for the past few years and found them to be dependable, reliable and cost effective. I just saw the Supermicro C7Z87 motherboard with triple display capability and definitely wanted it.
My initial thoughts: I just recieved this motherboard a few days ago and have been playing with it for a couple of days. It looks like a well-built motherboard. It also has several on-board video display support (VGA, HDMI, DVI and DP), but I am a hard core video nut so I am opting to get dual nVidia cards (not sure which ones yet) and bridge them via SLi. Overall, a good solid board as it is built with server grade components, and should be reliable, as server manufacturer Supermicro is known for.
Also, this motherboard can be overclocked! I overclocked this motherboard and it purred smooth like a kitten. I’ve been running it on and off for a few days so far with no crashes :)
Cons: Plain packaging without a fancy heat sink. Claims to have a UEFI BIOS but no GUI interface, which is ok with me since I am not a big fan for graphic BIOS settings anyway.
Other Thoughts: So far, so good. I will add a report of any problems later (if any).READ FULL REVIEW
