SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DAL-i-O Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can fit in a small case. Powerful. 16 cores in system monitor looks awesome.

Cons: Egg taken away. We originally set this up as a RAID 5 PC. It had great read times, but suffered hard core at write, and random read/seek times. This did not make the business I sold it to happy. Server 2003 SE

Other Thoughts: I talked to Intel about its ICH chip set. Also talked to super micro (which was awesome customer service) about the problem. Super micro was unable to replicate the problem. We solved the problem by going to a RAID card. Still a great board I just wouldn't trust the on-board raid controller.
