This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR3-F-O SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
Pros: One of the cheapest mobos that has so much ram, dual cpus, and pic-e 16 slots.
Cons: You really need to read the manual before buying parts. Not just the website description manual. In particular, you need to know that the mounting brackets for the CPU coolers are narrow ILM form. Most brackets are square ILM. Make sure to purchase the correct coolers. Also, the manual states that power supply requires 24-pin and two 8-pin power connectors. very few power supplies for towers are equipped with that kind of connectors, so be sure to purchase one accordingly. Also, not that if you use two CPUs, you will need a minimum of 4 sticks of RAM, at least two per cpu. Also, the EATX is not standard for this board. Your tower may not properly accomodate this. Look in the manual for measurements of mounting holes.
Other Thoughts: It is a good mobo, but you just need to buy the appropriate equipment to support it.READ FULL REVIEW
