The Asus Z8PE-D12 server motherboard supports up to two Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors at 4.8 GT/s, 5.86 GT/s, and 6.4 GT/s bus speeds via the Intel QuickPath Interconnect to handle even the most demanding applications. With 12 DIMM slots, it can support up to 6-channel registered or unbuffered DDR3 800/1066/1333MHz memory to significantly improve the computing capability.

Asus Flex-E Technology automatically transforms the motherboard into a dual-use serverboard for the advantages of both server and workstation modes.

AVOID LIKE PLAGUE

Comments: No reflection on Newegg, they rock. Just don't buy it unless you can afford to throw it away. I will never buy another ASUS product again, NEVER!

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues you had with the motherboard.

I'm following up on your review here on Newegg and would like to continue troubleshooting with you and help you get the motherboard working.

Please try the following if the motherboard does not POST:

Please try to clear CMOS after installing new memory. Turn off the system. Turn the switch on the back of the power supply to OFF. On the lower right corner of the motherboard is a jumper marked "CLRTC", move the jumper from positions 1 and 2 to 2 and 3. Wait about 30 seconds, and move the jumper back to positions 1 and 2. Power on the computer. Are you able to POST?

Please also try plugging a 4-pin speaker to the motherboard. As you power on the system, were any beeps heard?

Was the jumper for the 3-pin VGA_SW1--to enable onboard video set to Enable or Disable?

Please contact me at cl-benson@asus.com reference #S1037-670. When replying, please include system parts and specs.

Regards,
Benson

Power Supply Problem

Comments: I measured the voltage on the Supermicro power and it was 11.99v (within spec). (It is rated at 1200w) .The voltage on the other power supply that works, with is rated at 1000w, is 12.18v. As mentioned in the other post, it appears this board can handle above spec power but not spec power or below. Note: I also have a Z8PE-D18 and that board works with this power. I have inquired Asus about it and will see what happens, otherwise I have no choice but to RMA the board.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

In order to verify that the memory slot stopped functioning, please first try to reseat the memory module, clean the contacts with a contact cleaner, and test the slot with memory from other slots. If the results are conclusive, you may send the motherboard to us--RMA to have it repaired or replaced.

Regarding the short issue, please make sure you are using the proper standoffs, I/O sheild is installed, and check that the motherboard is not in contact with metal objects.

Regards,
Benson

Z8PE-D12 Asus 5520 MB

Comments: As far as a storebought 5520 MB, this board is fast, if not the fastest 2 socket 1366 on the planet, with a couple of X5690s on it. My passmark score pushed 23000. If one were able to get a pair of 'ES', step A0 X5690s and setup the multiplier in Bios to the mid 30s, I'll bet this MB would give the quad 6174 hell..! I am dying to try out the Asus quad 75xx board, when they get around putting them up for sale.
In conclusion, if one where to ask me if I would buy another one...? You bet..!

Bad service

Pros: Dual LGA, good features...

Awesome Linux Board

Pros: Awesome board. It's my first SSI EEB board, and I purchased the wrong case. Make sure you check your case sizes! ;)

Cons: Make sure you have good airflow. One of the (northbridge?) heatsinks gets extremely hot unless you pack the case with fans.

Overall Review: Initially Ubuntu 10.04 didn't recognize the second NIC which I found rather strange as the hardware should be identical. I was about to RMA the board, but decided to upgrade to 10.10 first. It found both NICs.
