2 out of 5 eggs Only 6 Ports work 08/24/2012

This review is from: Intel S2600COE SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Incredible board, insanely high quality, as expected from intel, if you want rock quality reliability look no further

Cons: Terrible video.. no really, as in not even 1280x1024... i know its a server but come on..., tried installing an addon PCI video card... board does not even POST, tried 3 diff cards too, but what annoyed me the most is the fact that theres 10 ports on the board but only 6 work... this is the ONLY reason i bought/spent the money on this board... seriously intel VVTF? the other 4 ports are not even recognized, they dont even show up on the raid cards bios, my guess? you need to buy some ridiculously expensive addon module, OR use 2 proccessors to get access to the extra sata ports.... would have been nice to know before buying, other than that its a really really good board.

Other Thoughts: If you are only using 1 proccessor, only 6 sata ports will work, i wish they would have told me this before buying, if you dont need the 10 ports theres way more other intel boards for almost 1/2 as much as this one that are just as good but dont have the 10 ports..
