Not a good value due to buggy features

James L., Newegg
28 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this motherboard primarily for one feature - it offers remote KVM, also commonly found as an IPMI feature. Supermicro has offered this for many years and it's a wonderful feature because it simulates, through a web interface and java application, a real keyboard, mouse and video console...
  • Pros: Clear documentation, Intel support website, regular firmware updates. Ivy Bridge support out of the box, nice low power consumption when coupled with a low-powered cpu.
  • Cons: Not clear that KVM IPMI support requires purchasing an extra RMM4LITE product, broken KVM features, possibly bad quality control and/or bugs in the memory controller. High price for features that are not working correctly. Making sure your fans run correctly requires downloading and running a spe...

Nice Board

James G., Newegg
28 April 2013
  • Summary: Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333 Server Memory Server Intel Xeon E3-1235 Sandy Bridge 3.2GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core ntec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active Sentey Eagle...
  • Pros: Features, Does all its supposed to. Good Budget server MOBO.
  • Cons: Lets see, the power connecter slot is right behind the RAM slots. I wish Intel would consider people who wish to mount the MOBO in a ATX computer case. Stickers supplied to label the I/O shield

1st time Server MB buyer

Christopher S., Newegg
7 April 2013
  • Summary: I recently built a home sever and decided to use honest-to-goodness server parts instead of a mash-up of desktop components. While this MB may be the bees knees for server building, you definitely need to understand all of the lingo beforehand.
  • Pros: Does what it's supposed to
  • Cons: Makes it difficult to do some of the simplest things

Good board

Eric D., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Pros: Board is able to take new 12** V2 Ivy Bridge Intel Processors, has onboard video (make sure to get an Intel 12*5 V2 processor for onboard video to work), BMC management, ESRT2 (0/1/10) RAID and RST (0/1/10/5) RAID support, VT-d, and there're certain DDR3-1600 sticks that work with it (namely King...
  • Cons: No case fan control because the board has BMC management.

OK

Carl M., Newegg
10 November 2012
  • Summary: no fan throttling for off-the shelf ATX cases.
  • Pros: BIOS supports E2 v2 out of box, unlike current SuperMicro options (2012.11.10), IPMI, 1600 ECC
  • Cons: Just discovered fan throttling is NOT supported with standard ATX cases. From the manual (G167972-004_S1200BT_SERVICEGUIDE.PDF), page 28: “Auto” Fan Control is intended to support standard EPSD chassis options. “Manual” Fan Control is intended to support third-party chassis installations. Given t...

  • Pros: These server boards work fine. You cannot look on Kingston's website for memory compatibility, you have to look on Intel's website. We generally use Crucial memory, but there are Kingston modules that work - you must look at Intel's website for compatibility. Server boards in general can be very ...
  • Cons: Slow matrix RAID. If your using RAID 1/0 use the built in LSI controller. If you need RAID 5 you can get a USB plugin from Intel that allows you to enable it on the LSI. The matrix RAID that's built in is ungodly slow. Better yet install a hardware RAID card - hardware RAID is always faster and m...

Excellent Value - VMWare ESXi 5 HCL

Jeff C. "Jeff C", Amazon
20 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this board to pair up with a Xeon E3 1240 V2 and 16 GB of RAM. I have an amazing VMWare ESXi 5 Home Server. This board is just perfect for me. One caution is you will have to install a community supported driver in order to get the other NIC to work in ESXi.

  • Summary: Köp inte denna produkt!!! Den tekniska specifikationen säger att kortet kan köras mellan 0C .. 55C. Men om man kör den i ett rum där temperaturen är under 15C så börjar chassiefläkten köra i 6000rpm och CPU fläkten i 2000rpm, vilket leder till att servern låter som ett jetplan.

Solide "entry-level" server MB...

=Jarry=, geizhals.de
13 October 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe diese MB fur ESXi-server gekauft, und bin 90% zufrieden. Einziges Problem: nur 1 von 2 Netzwerkkarten (8254L) ist im ESXi 5.0/5.1 erkannt (obwohl diese MB auf dem "WMware hardware compatibility list" ist). Die zweite (82597) einfach nicht.
