Ok

  • Summary: Pros: This board is perfect for VMWare ESXi. Running with 24 gigs of RAM, Adaptec RAID controller, and a Xeon 3520. I'm currently running 6 virtual servers with this configuration and I know I can still add more. Cons: None. Other Thoughts: Choosing the compatible parts (mainly the combination of RAM and CPU) can be a little confusing but I've only done that mistake once. Research, research, research.

No HFC mounting bracket

  • Summary: Pros: Supermicro makes quality products. Good layout, good options on this board. Cons: This is the second Supermicro product I've purchased recently that had a key missing item - something they want to nickle and dime you for. This time it's the HFC mounting bracket that goes under the mobo - sells separately for around $8 + shipping, and you can't get it through Newegg.

It's ok, but...

  • Summary: Only has 1 PC express slot, which you will need for a video card since the onboard video absolutely blows if you plan on watching any videos whatsoever. No onboard sound. Only 2 usb ports on the board unless you add more. Loaded with SAS ports which are useless to me since I don't have those drives. I bought it because my ASUS board would not recognize all 24 gb of my ram and this board accepted it no problem.
