Had those called out in the notes below. If you note, the Supermicro X10SL7-F is the cover image and is in a test bed right now :) Vendors sent me their lists so have a few more queued up. Will have a big comparison sheet soon.
Hi, can you please test passthrough of the LSI controller on this motherboard in ESXi? Thank you.

Will see if I can do ESXi in time also. Normally though these boards just have PCIe lanes directed at the onboard controller and skip the physical PCIe slot part so they behave very similar to having a card fixed in the PCIe slot.

Updated with Tyan, Gigabyte and ASRock links. ASUS and Intel server motherboards incoming as well.

Also, I do have a spreadsheet with all of this that I'm almost done with so will provide a consolidated view in the near future.

Great that you are puttin' all of this together. Saw the C226 miniITX on STH main. Looks cooool

Could you measure system power consumption at idle (and full cpu load) in coming motherboard reviews? Just like you measure in processors reviews.

I was browsing the Supermicro site, and I noticed SuperMicro also has some 1150 Core Motherboards coming soon, including C7Z87-OCE. (doesn't support Xeon)

Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | 4th Gen. Coreâ„¢ | C7Z87-OCE

They are selling a barebones with this motherboard as a "Gaming System" 5038AD-T with the side window and the lighting and it supports water cooling.

Supermicro | Products | SuperWorkstation | Mid-Tower | 5038AD-T

I have to say I never thought I'd see this from Supermicro.

Ha I was going to do a post on that. Talked to the SM guys and seems like they are not pushing that one hard but it does over clock. I do have a Q87 board.

Where are the E3-12x5 workstation boards?

Has anyone come across a non C22x Motherboard that supports the E3-12x5v3 cpus & ECC memory? Is the C226 the only option for supporting video on the E3-12x5v3?

The only workstation board I've stumbled upon is the ASRock C226 WS which isn't available nor inexpensive. I'd rather avoid consuming two slots on a server board for video and sound.

thanks!

For using on-die Processor Graphics with the need of physical displaying port you need a C226 chipset, I think so.

Intel has a minimalistically uATX with onboard DisplayPort
Intel® Server Board S1200V3RPM

three questions:
It is possible to use on-die Processor Graphics for OpenCL computing with C222/C224 chipset?

I can't believe that Xeon v3 has no F16C and no FMA3 feature?
cpu-world: Intel Core i7-4770K vs Xeon E3-1270 v3

Where can I find official Intel documentation about turbo frequency at all four cores?

Is there any benchmark about Haswell Xeons? Like Xeon E3-1230V2 vs. Xeon E3-1230V3. Many thanks

It would be great to get a /proc/cpuinfo output under a recent linux kernel.

In doubt, you can use SystemRescueCd on an USB stick and do following after booting:
# cat /proc/version
# cat /proc/cpuinfo

Many thanks Patrick! Do you have geekbench 32 o 64 bits numbers? Regards, Oliver
We tried using geekbench but found a few areas where it was struggling in the past. Those folks are super nice though and very helpful.

And and... will likely be able to get those numbers next week. A lot of travel between today and next Monday.

A question. I am buying a Haswell Xeon e3 mobo. I want an LSI 2008 for ZFS and Solaris. I have a IBM M1015 card, which is PCIe 2.0 x8. I also want a decent gaming graphics card, and they all use x16 PCIe slots. So I need to use one LSI 2008 card and I need to use a gaming card. I game only occasionally, and then I reboot into Windows. My question is, which mobo should I buy? I would prefer a mobo with as many x16 PCIe 3.0 slots as possible. This means I should opt for an ATX mobo, because they have more expansion slots.

If i buy an ATX Supermicro X10SAT which has three PCIe 16 slots, I get one active x16 PCIe slot, or two active x8 PCIe slots. But I can not get two active x16 slots at the same time. This means if I insert the M1015 card in an x8 slot, then the PCIe slots will degrade to x8 speed (or lower if I populate three PCIe slots). Right? So no slot will run at x16 speed. (But gaming cards never use more band width than x8 anyway).
Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SAT

My other alternative is the microATX Supermicro X10SL7-F mobo which has an built in LSI2308 controller. I hope it works as well as LSI2008 on Solaris. But this mobo has only one PCIe 3.0 x8 speed. No x16 slots are available. This means I can not run my graphics card at x16 speed, I can only use x8 speed.
Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SL7-F

So no matter which mobo I choose I can not get x16 PCIe slots. Is this correct? So I can choose any mobo I want? Unless I can run the M1015 in PCI-E 2.0 x1 (in x4) slots which the X10SAT has. Can I run the M1015 in a smaller x1 slot in the X10SAT and give up some bandwidth? Or must I use the M1015 card in an x8 slot?

Or do you have any other suggestion? I want as many x16 slots as possible, and LSI2008 or LSI2308 card, and gaming card. And Solaris and ZFS.
