Great Workstation/Server Board

Anonymous, Newegg
2 October 2014
  • Summary: I love this product and would recommend anyone looking buy it.
  • Pros: Has a great design, and is a stable server board.
  • Cons: Not reall a con but as another poster mentioned you need to buy narrow ILM heatsinks- but this is all worth it with the board space you save.

Good dual CPU board

Paul F., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Pros: Runs great with 2 Xeon E5-2620's. The only reason I docked an egg was because I'm using this rig to do visual effects and simulations and put in a GTX 780 TI for GPU accelerated benefits. The heatsink across from all the PCI express slots was too high for the video card to click in all the way, s...
  • Cons: Bigger video cards may not fit perfect because of the heatsink across from the PCI slots.

Great HPC board, but: NARROW ILM

Scott B., Newegg
12 February 2014
  • Pros: FIRST: THIS BOARD USES THE "NARROW ILM" TYPE OF LGA 2011 SOCKET. This is not a flaw, but it means that most LGA 2011 CPU coolers will not fit; you will need one that comes with a bracket for the narrow ILM, such as the SuperMicro SNK-P0050AP4. I bought this board for a home file server and to do ...
  • Cons: none that I can see

weak vga connector

Harry L., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I use this on a test bench. Unless you have the built-in vga connector solidly attached to a chassis or something, you are going to break it easily. Needs a more solid connector like previous Supermicro boards. I have a board with 4x4 bifurcation that works in a competitors MB, but not in this one.
  • Pros: powerful gen-3 system. IPMI is excellent. Plenty of gen-3 slots.
  • Cons: wimpy VGA connector - breaks easily cannot get bifurcation to work on any slot

Never got past install

Matt M., Newegg
16 March 2012
  • Summary: Since the 2011 chipset has only a few boards out there I am going to try the next model up the X9DR3-F. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me I suppose...
  • Pros: Looks to be great build quality, and fits the E-ATX like it is stated on their website.
  • Cons: Never got to install due to PCI-E 16x overlapping CPU-1 by about 2 inches with a Quadro 4000 graphics card. I don't see how any card would fit there in the first place as close as it is to CPU-1. Partially my fault for ordering this hoping things wouldn't be as tight as they looked.
