ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Doesn't work with UEFI, numerous problems with setup (0E, 0D errors) 07/21/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard

Pros: Could be a great board and a supreme dual-CPU board for desktop, but has an incredibly bad BIOS and options for UEFI support.

Cons: May seem to be a great board, and I can make it work, but purports to be a UEFI supporting board and its support and BIOS are awful. With the latest BIOS, using approved processors and RAM (from the approved vendor list) and an ASUS video card also with its latest upgrades, the board loses its ability to enter BIOS setup if you turn on UEFI, with an unexplained and undocumented 0D error. On a reboot, fails with a 0E microcode error. Seems to be a BIOS issue, not a hardware problem. To the person who says that it's an issue with not understanding how to do the build, that is false with respect to UEFI. It is probably a great board in legacy mode, but in UEFI mode it faceplants. At this moment I can boot into Windows 7 with UEFI but I can't reboot without dropping power, and if I want to get into BIOS setup I will have to clear the CMOS and completely reconfigure (twice).

ASUS Z9PE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Doing fine with Debian/Xen 09/17/2013

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Good feature set, 4 LANs. Using for VPS hosts on a Debian Xen "Dom0". Everything seems well-supported in Linux.

Cons: Slow to post. I have read that the BMC controller may be the cause. Failed to boot after an emergency, even after selecting a valid bootable SSD drive, until we moved drives around and back. Unfortunately multiple reboots to debug this failure meant an hour of slow posts and a long downtime period.

Other Thoughts: Have yet to try the PIKE RAID option but will be installing one soon.

CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs Slightly larger than ATX and advertised spec 02/27/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Good power supply

Cons: The power supply is larger than the reported 5.9" with dimension, and larger than the associated 150mm width ATX specification. Therefore the power supply does not fit through my purchased Lian-Li case opening, which is 151mm. The width is partly due to ridges added for visual effect.

I'm sorry, but Corsair does not get to decide that their power supplies can be larger than the ATX specification. They also don't get to report 5.9" width when it's actually 5 15/16". I may therefore decide to return the power supply if I can't used it in my case.

Other Thoughts: Really disappointing. Corsair should be mocked for not being able to use a ruler.
