RAID good, but full of grief

Richard M. Mathis "Richard M Mathis", Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: I used RAID 5 with WD black drives for 3 years, switched to this motherboard (which is amazing in every other way) when I wanted to upgrade my RAM capacity, and have only had heart ache with the RAID controller. Everyone everywhere says I need to use WD Red drives instead. Thats fair...mostly...kinda...except I had been using WD black for years, now suddenly I have to purchase a bunch of new Red drives instead, really?

Good for Home VM farm or Workstation

A. User, Amazon
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item to build a home VM server. I used 2 5667 cpus and 48GB ram along with 2 Noctua NH-U9DX 1366 heat sinks. I spent more on the heat sinks since I'm using this in a home office and I wanted the setup to run quietly. Its working fantastically, here are a few things you should know: This is the version with IPMI support. You probably really do want this feature, so you can reboot and access the console remotely.

Not impressed that they sent out a board with an easy-to-test-for fault

Amazon Customer "Old enough to remember when ..., Amazon
28 November 2014
  • Summary: Not thrilled with this. It arrived with a duff RAM socket, so we could not populate it with the RAM we wanted. No time to send it back, as it was a needed replacement for another (different manufacturer) that had blown up, so I don't know how they would have handled a return.
