SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DR7-LN4F-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has Intel NIC worth $350 if purchase separately. Has LSI SAS controller worth $250-$300 if purchase separately. Works with a single CPU. Really good running Hyper-V.

Cons: Needs a Supermicro chassis, not a con if you are in need of a chassis since Supermicro chassis pair well with these.

Other Thoughts: Have 3 servers in the field, each running 4-6 VMs with Hyper-V on this mobo, and they are trouble-free.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-H-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reliable, works well

Cons: Riser cards for this unit in a Supermicro case not properly documented well

Other Thoughts: Got it running Debian with IPTABLES, Squid in transparent proxy mode, and SAMBA. It's faster at sharing files with SAMBA than full-on Xeon Dell servers running Windows 2008 SBS. I'm impressed.

This board in the associated 1u rack case with a couple mirrored 2.5" laptop hard drives running Debian/CentOS with SAMBA makes a nice inexpensive alternative to BOTH a firewall AND dedicated server in a small business environment.


Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I immediately replaced the internal HD with a 64gb SSD after creating the restore disks (which rebuilt Windows on the SSD). Worked like a charm. This things screams through Win7-64 startup and login through the facial recognition is pretty darn snazzy.
