SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600

Pros: Haswell support. Everything fit properly--power connectors, heatsink, etc--except the case.

Cons: Supermicro completely changed the I/O back plane on these boards. I had been pairing the CSE-510-200B case with X9SCM-F-O Ivy Bridge motherboards. The CSE-510 isn't "optimized" for the X9SCM, but it fits and the Ivy Bridge E3-1230v2 chips run incredibly cool even with all cores at full-throttle--max power draw is less than most servers at idle.

I needed a new server and noticed that Haswell was shipping. I stupidly assumed that the X10SLM Haswell boards would work just like the X9SCMs. Boy was I wrong. I almost ordered a CSE-512 case, some models of which supposedly support the new I/O black plane. But I didn't feel confident at all that I could pick the right one out (Supermicro is the master of ambiguous documentation and product description language), and I really didn't want the extra 4 inches of overhang, anyhow.

So I ended up busting out my Dremel with the angle grinder wheel and went to work on the CSE-510 case. Now have a compact Haswell server, no thanks to Supermicro.
