Steve J., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: Will be looking for a replacement board.
  • Pros: Great board when it works.

A good buy.

Bai Fan, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: I decided to go with the dual cpu system but only buy one of the chips, which would allow me to spend the money in a much faster chip with the ability to add on additional one later. Instead of two $880 CPUs, I spent $1600 on one faster chip with a much better benchmark.

Great Workstation MB

R. Meyers, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: If you are interested in this MB, consider the Supermicro CSE-743TQ-1200B-SQ 4U/Tower Case. Everything fits perfectly and in a home office environment it is as quiet as a laptop!

Solid board, thus far

Jerritte C., Newegg
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I haven't had the board very long, so I can't speak to its stability, longevity, etc. But thus far, I'm pleased with it, overall.
  • Pros: The board has a rich feature set and supports a wide array of components. It seems to be very well built, as well. I found the BIOS quite simple to work with, so I'm not sure what difficulties the one previous reviewer was referring to regarding that. I had absolutely no problems whatsoever setti...
  • Cons: I'm going to list several "cons" here, but I'm being pretty picky on some of them. First, as others have said, this is NOT a standard eATX board. I put this in a Corsair Obsidian 750D case, which is eATX compatible. However, of the 10 holes in the board, only FIVE of them lined up correctly with ...

Nice board, all working.

Meng W., Newegg
28 February 2013
  • Pros: Bought them in bulk, all working smoothly. one ram slot is not working in one board I received, but changing my ram to another slot makes it work. This board has everything I need for a server machine.
  • Cons: single DOA ram slot is my only disappointment. But i am satisfied with this low failure rate.

BIOS really?

Malevolence, Amazon
8 November 2012
  • Summary: Good: Outstanding features, PCIe 3.0, a good number of slots, Very stable if you don't mess with BIOS to try and get Windows 8/Server 2012 running. Facts: EATX form factor = large size, while I have dealt with large size before, this just seems bulky, and the need to shoe-horn the MB into a case.

Faulty

karen s., Newegg
18 October 2012
  • Summary: For those who are interested, in an attempt to see if, perhaps, some of the components were faulty, I placed the GPU (an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680) in an ATX-based system and found that it worked perfectly.
  • Pros: I'm sure there would have been plenty if the board would have worked.
  • Cons: Motherboard was basically faulty and when testing the setup on my workbench, with the power-button cable from the case properly connected, I found that the motherboard would turn on automatically once: (i) the 20+4 pin and two 4+4 pin 12V connectors were attached to the motherboard, (ii) the PSU ...
