What's a good vendor to look for these boards at? Haven't been able to find anyone stocking one of these yet.

I'm looking at the IMB-1314 or X1314 here for a home NAS/server that will be on TrueNAS, or maybe a plain FreeBSD install (and maybe eventually Debian). Any caveats for these boards in that use case?

played around with the supermicro X13SAE-F for abit now, 12900ks does work with latest bios. but board dosnt seem to support thermal velocity boost, so max 5.3ghz single core, wonder if the 12900k also suffers a bit from this?
theres also no bifurication of the 16x slot, was hoping 4x4x4x4 would work.
also avx512 dosnt seem possible even when disabling E cores like on some other boards(microcode too new i guess)

edit: and as always with supermicro board no proper fan control, really considering switching to a consumer board or wait for gigabyte/asrock boards.

If the manual can be trusted, the non -F version has fan control

There's 4 presets in IPMI but it still has the fan ramp issues with low rpm fans like noctuas in all modes except full rpm. Can be fixed with cli but annoying when gigabyte etc have proper fan control on their server boards

Micron launched DDR5 ECC UDIMM on July 6. They are available in 16 GB (MTC10C1084S1EC48BA1R) and 32 GB (MTC20C2085S1EC48BA1R) versions.

I have found a list of vendors selling these but they are out of stock for the moment. I don't know how long it will take if you backorder it.

Compatible Supemicro X13SAE-O and X13SAE-F-O motherboards are in-stock from these vendors:

X13SAE-O

X13SAE-F-O

Even if you had bifurcation available, the main 16x Port can be bifurcated to 8x/8x max. This is a step back from 8x/4x/4x on older consumer and low end Xeons generations.

This site supposedly has some Innodisk modules in stock.

I naturally gravitated towards this topic, since one of my X11SSH-F boards seems to have given up the ghost. IIUC, the X13SAZ-F will support ECC RAM, and it has a proper server airflow orientation for the RAM slots. This might be an interesting combination; I'd never thought I'd run a server with a non-Xeon, but if ECC is supported, I might just as well go for it.

Did anyone already get their hands on an X13 board?

Edit: Meh, turns out that just the 920SQ PSU crapped out on me. That saves money ;) That said, I'm still interested in the X13 series.

got some X13SAE-F-O - one was dead DOA

no luck in getting X13SAZ-F-O

Not to deflect off of the topic of this thread, but with Intel Raptor Lake's release likely only being weeks away, wondering what people are thinking on waiting to see what that offer is and value prop... as well as, I'd assume, motherboard OEMs may be releasing new products? Same socket - wondering if it will just be a BIOS update to existing Alder Lake boards or if new Raptor Lake boards with IPMI and ECC support are coming.

I've waited this long for DDR5 may as well wait a little longer to see what comes out alongside Raptor Lake release.

Has anyone installed Windows Server on a X13SAE-F? It's not exactly on the compatibility chart but Windows 11 is. I've tried installing from a Rufus USB drive and the installer fails with "a required device isn't connected or can't be accessed"

Due to lack of stock I picked up an open box board from Provantage and it may have issues. There's no video output with a 12900K installed but at least the IPMI works.
