Great Server Board But Limited

Dennis, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this board to run video transfer and editing programs and to run resource hungry electronic design programs. I am using two AMD 6328 Opterons and 32G DDR3-1600 memory. After two months of owning the ASUS KGPE-D16 I have experience enough to write this review. This board works great as a server board but is limited as a workstation which is why I bought it in the first place. Win7x64 installed beautifully and effortlessly using the Promise onboard RAID drivers.

Not worth the savings

  • Summary: Not worth the savings. The mother board lasted about a month and then it died. I replaced it with one from NewEgg.

Works as intended.

  • Summary: Installing this mainboard in a Thermaltake Overseer RX-1 case was a breeze. I did not have any trouble installing the processors heatsinks or memory. I recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade to 16, 24 or 32 core processing.

Great board, poor configuration information on Amazon

PerryAJoE "Joe", Amazon
29 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this board because Amazon listed it in the '... also bought this... ' section of the web page. This board did not fit the AMD FX 8250 chip that was shown as fitting it, it didn't fit! Maybe building a system from scratch was a bridge too far but, the truth be told, Amazon's 'recommendation' algorithm engine is too simplistic to help with purchases of this type. The board and system it is in works great, good product, decent price.

Excellent board and great value

J. Graham, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I have been using this board since 2010. Originally used 2x Opteron 6128 CPUs and just upgraded to 2x Opteron 6380. The machine runs 24/7 and often at 100% CPU load for weeks at a time. Very stable! Overclockers should stay away - no options for overclocking.

Price Performance

Troy E., Newegg
20 February 2013
  • Summary: In the grand scheme of things, this build was current enough to meet production needs and extremely cost effective. Newegg, as always was great, too.
  • Pros: I have had good luck with these motherboards. We have had COMSOL running on 2 machines 24/7 with few problems. I did not use the PIKE card or the ASMB4-iKVM. One of the machines was slated for SolidWorks later on, so the PCI-E x16 was handy for a nice Video card. The SSD’s scored published numbers after installing the latest AHCI drivers. Since I can build 2 of these machines for less than 1 comparable Xeon and get more production I’m going to give it 5 eggs. I recent...
  • Cons: I removed most of the hard drive brackets and front door to accommodate 2 X 120mm fans to draw air in from the back and blow it out the front of the case. The on board fan controller does a good job – Opterons can run forever at 70C+

Doesn't match their specifications. Poor support.

Blowfish, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: Tried to manually set the memory at 1.35v x 800mhz (1600), which is my memory spec. BIOS would not allow higher than 1333, highest option is 667. You must jumper to get 1.35v, it's not in the BIOS. Had an intermittent CASE OPEN fatal error even though the jumper was set to ignore it. There were some other problems as well. Tried to get some tech support from ASUS three times.

was not DOA. If yours did not start read my story.

Olga Del C. Helo, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought the board after my Tyan board died after 5 years (Love Tyan products). I got the board and I installed everything and put it on a Thermaltake Level 10 GT Battle edition. It did not started. I was very disappointing. I assembled and tested all the parts (except the Mobo)3 times and nothing seemed to work. I took the board to a friend who repair PCs for a living.

would rate zero if I could

unhappy, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this MB about eight months ago because it could be used for both server and dual processor workstation functions. It worked for about six months and then it died. I contacted customer support who walked me through the process of exchanging the MB, I sent it overnight to Asus's technical support center, noted on my paperwork to overnight the new board back.
