Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Like it says; just works 02/13/2013

This review is from: Intel Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T2

Pros: Fully supported in ESXi and recognized on my X9SCL-F-O. Also supports SR-IOV.

Cons: Price maybe, but $142 isn't too bad for a dual port NIC of this quality and reputation.

5 out of 5 eggs Nice board, especially for the price. 01/28/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCL-F-O LGA 1155 Intel C202 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Pros: Remote console with virtual media support, UEFI support, support for Xeon and 'regular' i3/i5 CPUs.

Dual LAN ports and works fine with an Intel i350-T2 dual port network card.

Cons: I can't fault Supermicro for this, but one of the NIC ports isn't supported by VMware ESXi. I knew this going in and bought an added Intel dual port card to have a dedicated port for iSCSI and be able to play with SR-IOV (supported by the CPU, the board and the i350 Intel NIC (when using ESXi 5.1).

Other Thoughts: Those that mention the memory requirements and/or limitations in regards to requiring unbuffered ECC, didn't check the memory requirements of their CPU.

As of the Intel Nehalem series processors (like the Xeon 5500-series), Intel added the memory controller to the CPU (like AMD had been doing for years before that already). This means that memory type support is determined by your CPU, not the motherboard.

The Xeon E3-series only supports unbuffered ECC memory. To support RDIMMs on the newer generation CPUs, you'd have to upgrade to the Xeon E5-series (socket 1356 (E5-2400/1400) or 2011 (E5-1600/2600), so a completely different motherboard).
