SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-T Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1333/1066

4 out of 5 eggs Needs to ship with v2 BIOS 08/19/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-T Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1333/1066

Pros: Nice motherboard, works exactly as expected. Well constructed case. Very quiet. I'm really quite happy with it.

Cons: It shipped with the v1.x BIOS that doesn't support Ivy Bridge CPU's. After experiencing the "SuperMicro 4 beeps at power up" issue, I had to buy a Celeron G440 Sandy Bridge CPU to flash the BIOS in order to use the Xeon I ordered with it. All that added a week to the build and a $40 "tax" for the Celeron.

The motherboard didn't want to register all of the memory the first couple times it powered up, but after re-seating the DIMM's, everything works like a champ.

Other Thoughts: If you're going to advertise that something works with Ivy Bridge CPU's, it should work out of the box with them.

3 out of 5 eggs 5v PCI only 08/19/2012

This review is from: HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: Apparently it has great sound and high quality. I'll never know, because the motherboard I ordered with this doesn't support 5v PCI slots.

Cons: Doesn't work in motherboards that have 3.3v only PCI slots.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how to rate this, so I'll go with 3 eggs. If you're getting a new motherboard, check to make sure the PCI slots can handle 5v cards.
