where are thw MIO audi card?

Pros: Fast and affordable.

edit: 2017: I bought this in 2009 and i still use it in my render farm for 3D rendering. So I think I can add long lasting!

Cons: Not a lot of space and not a lot of connectivity. I had big problems woth the onboard network card and there is no PCI-1x slot (only a MIO audio card slot for an audio card that I can't find anywhere and it looks exactly like a pci-1x slot but the manual says it is compatible. The ram is stuck between the processor and the video card and it must be heating a lot because of that.

Other Thoughts: Does anyone know where I can find a MIO audio card so I can free the pci card to add a working NIC?

ASUS is a bad company

Pros: None

Cons: It started off with the motherboard not supporting the 96 Gb of RAM that it claims to be able to support. Sent it to ASUS for fixing, which they said it was fixed, but when I got it back, still didn't support the 96 Gb, with a POST error of DIM_F1 disabled. Its always been able to see that 96 was installed, but only 80 was usable. This tells me the memory works, but there is something wrong with the port. So I called ASUS again and they said the only thing that can be done is to send it in, yet again... for what? To tell me it works when it doesn't. No thanks. So I decided to deal with only 80Gb of RAM and have a spare in case. Now the motherboard gets to post and stops before handing it over to the OS with a blinking cursor. I was able to get it to boot once by switching the SATA HDD mode to AHCI, but now it won't boot at all. It powers on but does nothing. I'm hesitant to call ASUS again, but may not have any other option. Stay away from this board if you can.

Server-class Board

Pros: This is a definite server-class board and that's great, because I needed a replacement for my old server. Onboard RAID, dual CPU sockets, DDR3 ECC RAM support, and all the case fan jacks are what sold me on this model. Oh yeah, and the Asus brand name. I love Asus equipment and would recommend them to anyone wanting to do a custom build.

Cons: I think this board was designed around 2009, so it's not the most up-to-date system today. It only has SATA2 support and 6 SATA2 jacks, which can potentially limit storage options. It's only got 2 bulit-in USB2 jacks with the potential to add just two more via the board header, which limits external devices. The MIO slot also doesn't double as a PCIe X1 slot.

Other Thoughts: As a server, this board is great. I was aware of the limitations when I bought it and it has served as an excellent replacement to my old server. It supports Server 2008 R2 and Server 2012. Hardcore desktop users, though, will probably find this board lacking to some degree.

asus hallelujah

Pros: Brand name support and documentation. Plenty of header connections for chassis fans.

Cons: Short on expansion (PCI slots and USB ports) as it is a server board. The ASUS sound board (MIO Audio) that compliments this board has a bracket that does not line up with a standard ATX box. That was a bit disappointing. I thought the headers for the chassis switches and LED indicators could have been a bit more clear.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for.

2/ 5

Pros: has a lot for the money

Cons: tried to install winserver x64 '08, no drivers for sata ctrlr on CD, despite labeled folder names. CD boots to FLOPPY writing utility to write a driver where it asks you to choose which chipset you have. then floppy utility fails. ridiculous, so stupid terrible process.
