SUPERMICRO MBD-X8STE-O LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Xeon Server Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs worst support / documention ever 07/14/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X8STE-O LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Xeon Server Motherboard

Pros: specs are good... on paper

Cons: Worst support & documentation ever. SM website says this motherboard supports Xeons. No where is it mentioned that you need revision 2.0 motherboard (not BIOS!) to have this compatibility. If anything other/older, only desktop variety s1366 CPUs will work. And don't expect SM to replace the motherboard if it is not rev.2.0 - essentially false advertising!

Other Thoughts: Oh it only gets worse - SM have 1 year warranty on parts - other manufacturers have 3, ie Asus - even on their desktop boards. Overall, I'm unsure why the big fuss about SM - overrated & under-performing if I ever saw a company.
