SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLA-F-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Good solid server board 07/06/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLA-F-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600

Pros: For me, the multiple PCI slots with Gen4 processor support. Good tech support from SuperMicro.

Cons: It was really hard to find compatible memory. The manual is not yet online, but the board is new. (You need to call tech support for the manual.) The manual says DDR3 unbuffered ECC/Non-ECC. For me, only unbuffered ECC would work, so the manual is misleading. No driver disk came with the board, and it is hard to locate all the drivers. The board DOES support i7, but you cannot tell that from the Supermicro site.

Other Thoughts: I wish the back of the board had USB3. There is an internal USB3 port, but nothing in the back.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLA-F-O ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Has multiple 32 bit pci slots which I need and supports new generation processors.

Cons: DOA. I must have received the board that the first reviewer sent back. The VGA and come ports were bent straight up. There is no video either on the onboard port or on cards I plug in. There is no startup beep.

Other Thoughts: Why no USB 3 ports on the back of the board? There is only an internal header that doesn't even work with SuperMicro's connector to the front port on their server chassis.

BYTECC HD7-U3FW800 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's little. It has fw800.

Cons: Doesn't work with 10K 2.5"
It is to shallow for fast drives. They don't fit.
There is not enough power for the 10k drives.

Other Thoughts: They call this a "Super Speed" enclosure for 2.5" sata drives. But it won't work with fast 2.5" 10k drives!!! The enclosure does not fit the thickness of the drive and there is not enough power to run the drive... So it is useless for the really fast drives that can make use of the 1394B and USB3 ports. They really need to make clear in their specs that it DOES NOT WORK with fast 10k drives like the WD6000BLHX and such. Nowhere in their spec is this evident.
