ASUS Z9PE-D16/2L SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

1 out of 5 eggs mixed feelings review 11/23/2013

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D16/2L SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Pros:
- expandable
- works well with raid cards
- memory capacity is nice and stable
- easy to read debug LED (helps with figuring out some hangs)

Cons: - Several Intel errata issues that HAVE NOT been fixed
a. Can cause iKVM issues that others have
b. Causes reporting errors on sensors
c. Will cause your system to halt, hang or function abnormally
d. Definitely can cause data loss
e. Can cause hardware damage to motherboard components
f. Might explain some "DOA" cases, as when errata is not fixed it causes abnormal behavior (Including constant resets)

- Limited support on these boards, only one issue was fixed since 6 months ago
- UEFI compliance is less than what it used to be as of the last update. Incorrect digital signatures in firmware will cause Microsoft OS installations to not function as intended.

Other Thoughts: Intel publishes errata on these boards on a regular basis, ASUS should be on top of this.

Pros: i have over 28 drives connected with the help of an intel sas expander.
great performance if you have the correct drive configuration
great technical assistance from areca support team
new firmware really helps iron out old issues

Cons: no advance replacements if your card needs to be rma'd
uefi support somewhat untested by areca and can cause issues later down the road
the cooling solution on card is not that great if you have high loads for a long period of time, you will start to run into the faulty side of this card
