*Read before purchasing* Key information lacking on product details!

  • Summary: As stated above, if you plan on running both sockets on this board you must purchase a proprietary power supply to do so. This isn't disclosed but for a single sentence in the owners manual for the product line on the manufacturers website!
  • Pros: Fairly feature rich for the price point.
  • Cons: Requires a proprietary power supply to operate with both CPU sockets populated!

Good, Reliable Board

  • Summary: I've never had an issue with supermicro or AMD so i'll continue to use them.
  • Pros: Easy to install and it's been running solid for about a year. BIOS, firmware and IPMI are easy to upgrade remotely. Enough PCI slots for most people's network/HBA needs.
  • Cons: CPU pins are easy to disturb. It was reporting less memory for one of the CPUs until i discovered a pin was slightly bent when I installed the CPU

Rock solid motherboard - Supermicro tech support is 5 stars

2 November 2013
  • Summary: Its a nice entry level server motherboard that packs all of Supermicro's qualities but has some limitations in regards to drive connectivity and memory performance which are unfortunately critical core topics.. For a dual socket board and a price tag over $300, you could expect more or better performing features.
  • Pros: Rock stable, this motherboard, like most Supermicro stuff is meant to run 24/7 and you can count on it. Ive had the motherboard for about 3 months now, running 24/7 with moderate to severe processing levels and so far nothing has gone wrong. The IPMI is also nice to remotely manage the server should the OS go bad (reboot, shutdown, poweroff, etc) and also to see real time sensor readings. The product is also shipped with all necessary accessories and construction/asse...
  • Cons: Doesn't have SAS ports but I guess its not really a CON since there is an option available, same mobo but with SAS ports: H8DCl-6F.

Great Product

  • Summary: Overall, im happy with this board and id be a fool not to expect at least some problems along the way.
  • Pros: I got this board maybe a little over a month ago. It has been running at 100% load for that whole time, and there hasn't been a single problem.
  • Cons: When installing an OS i had some trouble. Ubuntu 12.04LTS and before would give me i/o errors upon install, but 13.04 worked without problems.
