Great board with some slightly annoying things

Chad B., Newegg

  • Summary: How to fix the fans. Open shell and type the following command ipmitool sensor list all From the list provided find your fan headers, FAN2 for example. You will need this for the next command to set your fans lower limits. If you look across the columns you will see six sets of numbers.
  • Pros: The board woks as advertised.
  • Cons: Only negative I have is the goofy fan controls. You have no direct control in BIOS or over IPMI. You can select a basic profile, but that is about it. No info on what the profile really does. If you have low speed fans like Noctua you will also trip a low speed sensor warning that will make the f...

All things considered, good buy

  • Summary: I decided to build a home virtualization server for all purposes I could think of. Ideally, I wanted it to run every server I could think of running, plus an HTPC/gaming VM. Turns out GeForce cards are prevented from doing this. Regardless - it is one beast of a machine and I love it.
  • Pros: * C226 chipset includes VT-d for passthrough - must-have for anyone doing virtualization * 5x 4-pin PWM fan headers * 6x 6Gbps SATA3 ports * IPMI is extremely handy and is also a must-have for any server builds - no busting out an old VGA monitor for this * 2x 1Gbps NICs in addition to the IPMI N...
  • Cons: * Full-length GPUs block 3 or 6 SATA ports (my GTX650 Ti Boost and GTX770 both block 3, leaving one row). It must be pretty difficult to put SATA ports anywhere else on motherboards since almost every manufacturer seems to keep doing this. I realize it's a MicroATX board so I understand cramped s...

Solid and Versatile Home Server Board

J. Thomas, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: I got this board in conjunction with a 1241v3 Xeon and 16GB of ECC RAM for the purposes of running a KVM hypervisor at home. With CentOS 7 as the OS it's been rock solid with 6 guests so far, a mixture of Linux and Windows Server.

  • Summary: Can't explain my appreciation for this motherboard. To find something that works as advertised with supported memory, RAM, and pass through SAS controllers? It's perfect. This is hosting my ESXi server - which hosts a file server with two pass through SAS controllers, media encoder, 3 test servers...

Died after five days

Erik Gordon Bainbridge, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: It worked perfectly for five days, but then problems began developing, such as not allowing me to access USB sticks and CDs. Then booting became more difficult and finally it wouldn't boot at all. It was a nice board while it worked.

Excellent

Greg, Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: Paired it up with a Xeon E3-1231V3B and 32GB ECC Kingston memory. I'm running a dozen VMs using SmartOS as the host right now. I love the IPMI feature - it means that I don't have to put a video card in the machine or get a cpu that has integrated graphics.

SATA ports placement is very poor if using GPU

captainupants, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: If you install a full size GPU 3 Sata ports is blocked, of the three SATA ports not blocked, if using a GPU with ACX cooling, fan clips the plastic of the 2 of the 3 sata ports. SATA ports placement is very poor if using GPU. I used 3 SSD's 2 Transcend, 1 Crucial M500, BSOD on WIn7,WIn8.1,Win2012R2.
