SUPERMICRO MBD-X8SIE-O LGA 1156 Intel 3420 ATX Intel Xeon X3400/L3400 series Server Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Great board but RAM support sucks. 05/10/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X8SIE-O LGA 1156 Intel 3420 ATX Intel Xeon X3400/L3400 series Server Motherboard

Pros: Jumpers! I actually like jumpers, as you really can't mess up adjusting features in hardware, whereas software can have glitches.

All solder points are clean, uses all solid state caps, everything is well laid out, and the manual details would appease even the most particular of documentation oriented people out there in the world. It even has pinouts for every connection on the back panel of the motherboard for crying out loud!

Cons: Memory support is a pain in the rear. However, this seems to be an issue with the Intel 3400 series chipsets, and not due to Supermicro from what I've read Online, so I went ahead and gave this board a 5 egg rating.

Other Thoughts: N82E16820139543

Kingston - KVR1333D3D8R9S/4GHB

I can confirm this RAM is compatible and works well with this board. I tried some generic Supertalent Hynix Reg ECC DDR3 RAM and it was a no go. Seems the Intel 3400 series is very particular about what RAM will play nicely.

PNY XLR8 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD3-1600-X8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installed these in a secondary i7 based system. They work at their advertised rating of 8-8-8-24 with only 1.64V. The heatspreaders are attached with a good amount of tension on the clips, and the black color even matches my motherboard PCB. At around $4.60 per GB you can't go wrong. Great value!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Running 3 of these kits without any issue in an i7 socket 1366 system on an X58 based eVGA motherboard. The current price of RAM is so cheap right now it's ridiculous.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs at specified ratings at 1.64V, great value for the money, and the heatspreaders seem very high quality. This RAM has some decent amount of metal on it.

Cons: None, works as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Running 3 of these kits without any issue in an i7 socket 1366 system on an X58 based eVGA motherboard. The current price of RAM is so cheap right now it's ridiculous.
