not very durable.

Judson S., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Pros: it arrived in the mail.
  • Cons: After almost two years it died. Yes I use them hard but for the cost it should last. I have a lowest bidder Dell motherboard which i have run continuously for 8 years that still works!

BEWARE!

Brian D., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Summary: Is it really that hard to get accurate information on a website?
  • Pros: D/K
  • Cons: Despite representations to the contrary, newegg is shipping versions of this board with a bios that does not support e5-2600v2 processors. Of course, unless you have a v1 processor lying around, you can't update the bios yourself, so you have to send it in for an update. Since it took me more tha...

User Review

Michael B., Newegg
14 October 2013
  • Summary: Has awesome potential but it just will not work with over 32 GB ram installed. Orderd 64, so now i have $370 bucks worth of ram sitting here doing nothing in a box. Cant afford the downtime to RMA the board ASSUMING its a board issue. Would i recomend this board? No. Not if you need it in a hurry.
  • Pros: Lots of sata ports. Came with 8 sata cables. Plenty of room for ram
  • Cons: WILL NOT POST WITH OVER 32 GB OF RAM INSTALLED. Had to update the Bios. Which was no big deal. Seams to be a somewhat solid board. But the ram issue has really irked me. This is for the main accounting server at my work and taking it down to trouble shoot it isnt an option. Was needed in a hurry ...

Problems All Around

Trenton S., Newegg
12 February 2013
  • Pros: Small ATX form-factor. Lower cost dual Xeon board.
  • Cons: This board never posted, never beeped, no video signal. Poor onboard diagnostics provided to troubleshoot the issue. Poor technical support. Poor documentation provided with board. The RMA process failed with Newegg claiming a bent CPU socket pin during installation, but both sockets were clean w...

DOA - Did Not Post

T. Scott "SonicAgamemnon", Amazon
9 February 2013
  • Summary: Did not post. No video whatsoever. No diagnostics other than a few insipid beeps, no LED or numerical status code, nothing. Technical support at SuerMicro was no help. Thank you Amazon for refunding this mistake.

Solid Server

Scott S., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: Running well with Xeon E5-2609 and Dynatron R8 CPU cooler. Had to upgrade BIOS from 1.0b to 1.0c before I could use the SAS RAID function on 64-bit Windows 2008 R2, plus request drivers from manufacturer.
  • Pros: Lots of drive ports. IPMI with decicated NIC. Responsive customer service.
  • Cons: May not be ready for W2K8_R2_64. No drivers included in box.

  • Pros: Stable, inexpensive and lots of features.
  • Cons: The VGA port is not well supported

Good Specs; Builders Beware

Dave A., Newegg
13 January 2013
  • Summary: If you're putting this in a 2U rack-mount case using a low-profile (fanless) heatsink, this is a top-notch board. If you're putting this in a pedestal ATX case to run a meaty Hyper-V server next to your desk, you may want to consider something else.
  • Pros: Lots of good specs on paper; price is right. Getting a dual LGA-2011 board onto an ATX form factor is the main reason I bought this board.
  • Cons: There are two reasons I gave it 3-eggs instead of 5. (1) Of the 8 mounting holes, 3 are located where you (including Antec, Corsair, and Cooler Master) don't expect them. To mount this in typical enthusiast ATX cases, you'll have to use nylon stand-off's which gives the middle of the board more a...

Could have used 1 more usb header

marc s., Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: No usb 3 is fine but the 3rd header is actually a built-in usb 2.0 port - could have used 1 more header. While at it, at the cost - why not have the additional 2 GbNic's? Again, would have been useful.
