First Motherboard I’ve bought that was DOA

Pros: Decent motherboard for Dual Xeon Socket
Comes with 16 memory slots
Quad Lan

Cons: First motherboard I’ve ever had DOA
Positioning of the power supply connectors are in top corners which causes you to run cables across the front of the motherboard and not through the rear. This is because most 24pin 8pin cables aren’t long enough

Only supports USB 2.0
Too many Sata II ports

Overall Review: I’ve been building PCs for 12 years and this is the first time I’ve had a motherboard DOA

I’ve seen some reviews about issues but thought it wouldn’t happen to me
spent days trying to resolve it
purchased a new CPU and new ram and a new PSU only to realise that this brand new motherboard has issues

Hoping to get it replaced ASAP

Manufacturer Response:
Dear customer,

I understand sometime users just want a motherboard designed in a way that perfectly fits into their desire chassis or the way they want it to be built. But please understand this server board is not only designed for a regular desktop tower but also rack mount chassis such as 2U, 3U, and 4U. Most of the rack mount chassis has its power supply positioned on the left side if you look at it on the back. This will minimize the power cable running length thus enhance airflow. However, different brand of PSU does come with different length of the ATX and EPS power cables. We know for a fact that some ATX and EPS power cables are just long enough to snake through the back panel of the desktop tower, which leaves the face surface of the server board clean of looking. The same is true for the SATA cable provided if it is long enough, SATA cable can also be hidden in the extra spacing in the chassis’ back panel. We do not determine how many USB 2.0 / 3.0 ports and SATA 2.0 / 3.0 could be supported, it all depends on the limitation of each given PCH, Intel C602 in this case. While newer Intel PCH does support greater number of SATA 3.0, some of the predecessor PCH doesn’t. The work around to overcome the PCH limitation is add a PCIe USB and SATA 3.0 extension cards. This is why the 3rd party Marvell SE9230 storage controller is integrated in this board. What DOA did you exactly refer to – POST Failure or Power On Failure? What are your components – CPU, RAM, and PSU? What is the overall physical condition on your board? Without these preliminary information, we are unable to agree with your DOA statement. If you need help from technical support, please contact me directly at william@asrockamerica.com .

Thank you

WIll not Boot - Hoping for RMA

Pros: Looks like an excellent home lab board

Cons: will not boot

Overall Review: Motherboard has all the specs I want but I cannot get it to boot. I have a greenlight by the power port and a flashing green light by the PCI slot. But Case fans and cpu fan will not engage.

Hi Robin,

Thank you for the feedback! Did you contact our Server Technical Support to provide the information of your setup and components? I tried to scan through our database, but couldn’t find if we have been contacted by Robin in regards of an EP2C602-4L/D16. However, based on your problem description, the first approach you may try is bypass the chassis’ front panel cable and try to jump start the system by shorting the power pin and ground pin in the Front Panel header to see if the board would power on. But if you could provide us with more information about your PSU and the number of CPU installed, we could do a lot more as far as troubleshooting goes. Please contact me at William@asrockamerica.com.

Thank you

False overheating problem continues after 1 full year of them saying they would fix it.

Pros: It would be a good board if they would fix the known false overheating issues.

Cons: Board is not 100% compatible with all CPUs listed on the compatibility list. I have tried 4 boards and they all have similar issues. They report that one of the two CPUs is overheating and sends the cooling fan into hyperdrive every 6 sec and then back to normal. Supposedly they have been trying to fix this for at least a year now. Meanwhile I am stuck with a board that constantly generates false errors freaks out the cooling fan. They suggested I set the fan speeds manually but guess what, it still freaks out the fan because it still thinks it's overheating. In addition I can't put any stress on the system in fear of it really overheating. Please please please fix your product so I can use it.

Overall Review: Please support your boards and fix the known issues before continuing to sell it. I bought my entire system around this board and now I am stuck with it. And yes it was the same socket of each motherboard I tried. And yes I tried different CPUs and Fans. The problem is with the motherboard not my other equipment.

Fan Issues

Pros: If you are going to put this in a server closet then the noise wont matter.

Cons: There's a known fan speed issue that asrock continues to ignore. Basically the mobo will get a fault reading for the CPU and turns the fans to 100%. You cannot reset the fan speed without a reboot. Also fan speed isn't exposed via IPMI or BMC. So ya... you HAVE to restart this server.

Overall Review: Look elsewhere if you want a quite motherboard. (which was the point of buying this over a used r720)

Dear Connor,

We have a newer BIOS P1.90 & BMC firmware 0.19.0. http://www.asrockrack.com/general/productdetail.asp?Model=EP2C602-4L/D16#Download . If your board is not currently using these version, please try to update your BIOS and BMC. If that doesn’t address the fan behavior, please contact me at william@asrockamerica.com.

Thank you!”

Mixed feelings that ultimately bias positive

Pros: This is my 1st server build, and I'm a big fan of longevity. 16 DIMM slots, total RAM capacity, etc; all the specs hint at that longevity. I fleshed it out with the parts below. Once it's up and running, a 32-thread htop is a sight to behold. And after the journey, the machine I envisioned works as I designed it. It seems to run the fans aggressively, which I definitely like, but not at 100% constantly. NewEgg's RMA is awesome. The USB port near the debug display is an intriguing option.

Cons: It was the third motherboard that has been the charm; the first two were RMA'd quickly (mangled CPU pins on the first, detaching capacitors/components on the second). I don't have as much hands-on experience with server BIOS, but my impression is that it's pretty barebones--the biggest setting I haven't found is "restart after power interruption". UEFI and GPT are a special pain where one sits, but that's hardly unique to this board. The PCI-E slots are packed tight; multiple dual-slot GPU builds may run into localized heat dissipation challenges (60C and 52C just running X). I wouldn't recommend this to a first-time builder lightly.

Overall Review: The board's layout is tight; tread gently. With all the stuff on board, it pretty much has to be. A second Xeon build where you can test the other components during the RMA process would be a very helpful hedge of the investment. Memory's always a spanner in the works when I build, so I hope that helps someone else.

Components:
E5-2680 x2
Nvidia GTS250 x2
Black Diamond 32 GiB (16 GiB x2) (BD16GX21600MTR26)
Rosewill 1kW Bronze Power Supply
Fedora 28

5 eggs when it worked!

Pros: Dual CPU and fits a lot of RAM. Ran fast with two Intel Xeon E5-2680 CPUs and 128 GB of DDR3 1866 memory while it worked.

Cons: The motherboard seems to have a problem after about 2-3 months of use. I tried swapping out hard drives and RAM but I can no longer boot into any OS, and installations hang for every OS I have tried to reinstall (initially was running CentOS 7 with no problem).

Overall Review: There is no contact information in my order history to initiate an RMA, would like to swap it out with a working one and will update my review if I can figure out how to do that.

Hi Hafidh,

Please check the CMOS battery for the remaining charge. Since I don’t know of your original BIOS setting. If the CMOS battery is running low and there was a short power outage that you weren’t aware of, the MB could be trying to boot the OS off an incorrect storage controller (Intel C602 or Marvell SE9172) that you designated in the first place, or ACHI/RAID has been reset. Please feel free to contact me at william@asrockamerica.com.

Thank you!

Home Server Board

Pros: -Affordable
-Large RAM capacity
-Square ILM allows for more choices in CPU cooler
-Good CPU socket clearances allow for more choices in CPU cooler
-Multiple PCI-E expansion slots
-4x LAN ports
-Internal USB slot
-Will fit in a case that accommodates EATX motherboards

Cons: -Mediocre documentation. The documentation for this board could be much better. It does not help that the manual(s) cover a series of boards and therefore you need to ensure that what you are reading applies to your specific board. This may be common for server class boards.

Overall Review: -The first board I received had a bent pin. Newegg replaced the board promptly without any fuss. I was in contact with an ASRock Rack customer service representative as well. He was very polite, professional, and helpful.
-I can not comment on reliability of the motherboard since I have only had it in service for a few days, but I will periodically update my review if things pop up.
