Kicks but

Lucas D., Newegg
4 May 2015
  • Summary: I got this with an Intel Xeon E5-2430 and couldn't be happier. Easy installation, flawless power. I've been using the comp steadily for 1.5 years and it works great for 3d rendering, video encoding, and games.
  • Pros: Inexpensive dual cpu board with great specs
  • Cons: Can't think of any. Maybe more types of supported RAM?

SmallBusinessServer2008

Kevin H., Newegg
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Box has been up and running 24/7 since Dec. 09 without an issue. Could not be more satisfied.

  • Cons: None. Flawless from the start.

Gets the Job Done

Matthew G., Newegg
4 December 2011
  • Pros: Serial Port, 2 NICs and Wake on Lan means it's fully remotely-controllable, perfect for workstations that also need remote access or to act as servers. Performance is as good as you would expect. No unnecessary features getting in the way. BIOS is full of useful options, and can be accessed from ...
  • Cons: No sound, which is slightly annoying if you're using it as a workstation. Has an expansion slot for a soundcard which is apparently sold separately.

No complaints.

Alexander C., Newegg
9 September 2011
  • Pros: Good Bios interface with options to change just about anything you can think of. Ran a E5620 out of the box without issue so I guess the boards they are shipping now are the updated ones.
  • Cons: Challenging MB to work with in a lot of ways. The ram is close to the cpu sockets so the choice of heatsinks is limited. I ended up cramming coolermaster hyper 212s in with minor modification. The screws on the bracket need to be pulled off and the springs removed, then put a 1/8" ID washer on th...

I would buy another

Mike S., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Pros: Solid as a rock. Other posts say you need a flash to get the new Xeon's working. Mine worked out of the box. Not one crash on this board yet. Beat the tar out of it (ran in hot rooms, cpu maxed out for almost a week, etc) not one issue.
  • Cons: None

Whitebox ESXi

David S., Newegg
5 April 2011
  • Summary: Built a whitebox ESXi machine with this, a E5620, Kingston KVR1333D3S4R9SK3/6G, and an Intel RS2WC040 RAID controller. Smooth sailing so far. Looking forward to expanding this when I get some more $$$.
  • Pros: Mine came ready for my E5620. Everything on it appears to work with my install of ESXi 4.1u1.
  • Cons: None. Supported memory list was pretty short at the time of purchase, so you might have to gamble with RAM.

In the box 6 months

Michael O., Newegg
17 March 2011
  • Summary: If you're on a budget and don't require server level storage options, namely SAS, you can't go wrong with this board.
  • Pros: Running Duel 5640s and sporting 24 GB 1333 DDR3. This board has been a rock. Received it with the updated BIOS and worked flawless from boot. Great for a workstation box due to the standard ATX form factor. This is my 6th or 7th board from ASUS and I've yet to have a failure. Newegg service was g...
  • Cons: No overclocking, no SLI\Crossfire as it only has a single PCIe X16 slot.

Great board, easy set up

Graham B., Newegg
22 August 2010
  • Summary: checked with support on BIOS version. Mine came with 0902 shipped (BIOS version is the final 4 digit cluster after your serial number on the small sticker next the back panel), supported Xeon 5620 out of the box, which I had read might not be the case
  • Pros: 6x Sata 3.0 gb/s on-board raid 0,1,5,10, dual gb NIC, 6 DIMM slots, good expansions, dropped right in to a chenbro 1u chassis. Price. Asus Support.
  • Cons: If you are looking for SAS, you need to get the model up, this has robust SATA, but not the six channels of SAS. Also, in terms of heat channeling in a 1u chassis, the arrangement of the CPUs and RAM is unfortunate, as it creates a poorly ventilated tunnel that isolates CPU1 at the back of the ch...
