This board seems excellent but falls short with regards to functionality

Summary: This board appears to be an excellent board until it is put into service. The board has many bells and whistles for the WIndows user community but falls short when employed as a LINUX server and workstation combination. My PCIx8 SAS controllers failed to function properly and MSI customer support was no help. I was still able to build an excellent workstation and server from the board by loading it up with 64GB RAM and six OCZ SSD drives.
