Summary: No luck with this motherboard. I bought one a few years ago. It wouldn't boot, so I had to send it back. I bought another one a month ago and it never got to POST. It kept getting stuck with QCODE 61 (initializing NVRAM). I tried everything. All the components work in other systems.
Summary: This board runs hyper-v server great! I have an E5 hexacore and 64gb of ram and 4x gb Ethernet allows fast replication. Plenty of room for expansion. Raid cards are handled very well and performance is great.
The most aggravating experience in motherboards I've ever had - STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOARD
20 February 2014
Summary: I've been through 3 of these mobo's and am yet to have one work when fully populated with memory. We had Asus on the phone with every install and verified all the other components were good but once the memory was fully populated with 64GB it wouldn't even make it to POST.
Summary: So far, I'm not impressed. After buying this to create a heavy duty desktop, a larger-than-normal full tower case (Assa 9000) and a buncha other stuff, I found out in the manual, and not on any website and in very small print that the board had driver issues with Windoze 7 Pro.
Summary: I purchased this motherboard first at Newegg, but they shipped me a dead one, and then tried to say that I bent the pins on the motherboard as the reason why it didn't work, which would have been almost amusing if it wasn't so insulting.
Summary: Up to 128GB DDR3 UDIMM using 8GB Modules. 64GB per processor. Up to 512GB DDR3 RDIMM ECC using 32GB Modules. 256GB per processor. Supports (1) Graphic Card PCI-E. CrossFire or SLI isn't supported by this motherboard. Dual Processors Intel XEON E5 2600 Series LGA 2011.
Excerpt: Verwende dieses Board bisher in 4 Servern (jeweils Sandy Bridge CPU). Bisher keine Probleme, Ausfälle o.Ä.. Das integrierte IP KVM ist sehr praktisch wenn man keinen physischen Zugang zum Gerät hat. Einzig störend ist dass das Board extrem lange braucht bis endlich das Betriebssystem gestartet wird.
