SuperMicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F Motherboard

SuperMicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F Motherboard
SuperMicro X11SDV-4C-TP8F Motherboard

Pros: none- {Board arrived DOA (Dead-on-Arrival)}

Cons: Supermicro boards are usually very reliable, however this particular motherboard, X11SDV-4C-TP8F was DOA (Dead-on-Arrival) unfortunately. The motherboard has Intel Xeon D-2123IT with TDP-60W, however when powered on for a few seconds CPU seems to Overheat excessively and the board/PSU shuts down. The Big Heat sink on the processors is so hot it is like the board is running a processor with TDP of 135W with no cooling. Very disappointed because Super-micro could have used a SoC Heatsink with attached Cooling fan rather than just only a Heatsink with no fan. Using the motherboard on a heavily cooled 4U rackmount or Tower Chassis did not make any change as far as the overheating is concerned. Unfortunately X11SDV-4C-TP8F processor is Embedded SoC processor that does not offer any alternative processor replacement option. Our Technician end up using X11SCH-LN4F motherboard with Intel Xeon E-2100 processor that allows us choose our processor cooling options.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this product.
