Linux in Legacy BIOS mode; Suspend to RAM works; ASUS really needs to improve the OSS / alternative OS support for 5 stars.

Summary: Cons: * There was no easy way to enable UEFI booting for non-windows OSes (such as Linux installations/toolkits on USB drives). * It refuses to allow unsigned UEFI blobs/operating systems and there did not appear to be any option to allow that; not even an interactive user over-ride which might...
I ripped the foam off the I/O shield so that it would fit

Summary: The foam on the shield seemed to be blocking so I rage quit and shamelessly ripped it off impatiently. As a beginner pc builder, I used surprising force to install the ram and to position the cpu lever back down do its designated place during cpu installation (It works with my Intel Xeon E3-1226).
A solid, energy efficiency, ECC supprted motherboad.

Summary: Pros: 1. Solid build; 2. Support ECC memory; 3. Energy efficiency. I have made a build with this motherboard together with Seasonic Platium Power Supply and E3 1275v3, with all the energy saving features turned on. The idle power drawing in Windows is 25W!
Work as expected!! Is a robust motherboard as described for Server Workstation use...

Summary: I'm looking for a Motherboard for build a Server and normally I choose ASUS over other motherboards brands. This powerhouse work perfectly for server purpose. Only have issue with the CMOS so I need to flash and start working perfectly.
Summary: Loved this board! Packed with features and the Intel P4600 graphics is holding it's own for most entry to mid level workstation use. I used it with the Xeon 1275V3 and 16GB Crucial ECC RAM. Great to start with and has a lot of upgrade potential if the work load becomes too much for it.
Summary: Solid mining board. Paired this with 4x 290X's, a 1220v3, 8gb DDR3 ECC, and onboard RAID1 of 250GB RE4's.. Rock stable so far and no issues. The ONLY downside is that this board doesn't have IPMI.. Really hard to find a mobo with 4 real PCI-E GPU slots and IPMI though...
Summary: i paired the mobo with a intel haswell xeon 1275 v3 chip and 32gb of spare 1333mhz EEC ram from a broken x58 workstation i used while this is a great board i wouldn't use 1333mhz ram unless u already have it i would recommend 1866mhz EEC ram but don't go below 1600mhz EEC
Fast and flexible energy conscious workstation workhorse

Summary: The primary reasons for buying this motherboard were reliability and 2x Intel Gigabit networking ports. Because I need to back up a lot of data to NAS (Network Attached Storage), I needed the fastest network I could create. The two ports can be combined to create a trunked 2GB network.
