solid and versatile

  • Summary: XenServer likes this C224 controller just fine, and runs well on this board. I choose my own RAID cards and ignore the PIKE provisioning (which, unfortunately, is where the other 4 PCIe v3 lanes went), so I have no opinion on that feature. I wish it had been omitted in favor of fully provisioning the standard PCIe v3 slots.
  • Pros: I'm very pleased with this product line. I liked the P9D-E/4L so well that I bought a P9D-C/4L for its backup server. These are well laid out and reasonably well documented boards that are easy to build out and maintain, and perform as advertised. Asus support is responsive when I have questions. I've had nothing but satisfactory experience with these boards; they just work.
  • Cons: Read the specs carefully. The primary difference between the C board and the E is the PCIe v3 provisioning: on this one, the PCIe slots are skimpy and crippled. The x16 slot runs at x8, and the x8 slot runs at x4; it'll therefore fully support only one high-end RAID card, but at the expense of your graphics card slot. Any more PCIe v3 devices than that, and you must step up to the E/4L.

Fantastic

  • Pros: I've been using this board with a new Haswell Xeon processor and 32 GB ECC UDIMM RAM. Using it for several weeks now as part of a budget-minded XenServer deployment.
  • Cons: IPMI management is supported but requires an additional card that I cannot find anywhere at this time, the ASMB7-IKVM

  • Summary: ACHTUNG!!!! Es wird ASUS P9D-X ausgeliefert, und nicht das P9D-C/4L!!!! Obwohl die Artikelbeschreibung das P9D-C/4L beschreibt, welches mehr Festplatten- und LAN-Anschlüsse aufweist wird das P9D-X ausgeliefert und als solches ausgetauscht. Schade, dass die Kommentare bei den Rücksendungen nicht beachtet werden.

Achtung Falsches Produkt

  • Summary: Die Produktbeschreibung stimmt nicht mit dem Produkt überein, das Asus P9D-C/4L hat zum Beispiel 4x LAN, das gelieferte Board lediglich zweimal. Man sollte sich an dem Produktbild orientieren anstatt an der Beschreibung.
