Unfortunately their first effort into desktop motherboards was utter junk for overclocking.

So buyer beware.

I know there are other green boards but this gives me DFI flashbacks. Needs a touch of yellow

I really really like the understated look of this board, its simplicity and lack of dragons, logos, racing stripes or carbon fiber details make it appealing to me also good to see green making a comeback *Cough GIGABYTE! wink wink nudge nudge

Well the main point of this board is its 40 lanes using a PLX chip. Thats also were the price tag of 340€ come from.

Even the one without the chip costs a lot of money. Super Micro stuff isn't cheap at any part of the market tbh.

It's well made, but I fear like many other manus who have tried to break out of the server market into the desktop market that it may not end well.

Tagan and so on failed to establish a place in the market and they had a tenth of the competition out there now.

This one here has jumpers on it too.... So I cant expect much. It may be normal to use jumpers on server boards but enthusiasts like to tinker without the need to take half your rig apart.

I saw the Euro symbol and I felt so strange this is a British forum!


Supermicro is known for their server boards, give them some time and they'll surely be making some SOLID overclockers
