I just upgraded my Unraid server from dual E5-2670 V1's with this board and a E5-2680V4 (14C/28T). running perfectly.
using four 32GB DDR4 2400 Registered ECC sticks (Certified) I got for $95 each on eBay.
Upgraded the BIOS to the latest from Feb 2020. Happy with the build. Lost 2 cores/4T but saved 120watts per the UPS readout which includes removing one 115W TDP CPU, 12 less Ram sticks, less one LSI HBA (moved to onboard SATA for the SATA drives, still have one SAS3 HBA)

Thank you for sharing, this is a really nice board and would be great for a workstation.

I had it running in production and now having a boot failure, usb not even recognized. Will continue troubleshooting today. I noticed there is a set of status or troubleshooting mini led on the board but the documentation does not list any information on them. Does anyone know how to decided to yellow mini led light array? Looks like 8 lights guessing 8 bit status message or one light per function? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

Sad to see your board having issues. I was curious what the lights were myself and never did find an answer. I had some time in the evenings, so I actually went through all the documentation on the ftp site in both the motherboard's folder and the common documentation and found no mention at all. Best of luck for an easy fix.

I went from high 300’s wattage to high 100’s/low 200’s. I was able to drop one processor, 12 sticks of ram, and one hba card with the new motherboard.

unfortunately this new board died on me, back to the old power hungry setup until I can determine what to do next. Looking and comparing supermicro boards now.

@KC8FLB
What is your power consumption? Looking at a similar set-up vs. a Ryzen board.
Thanks.
FWIW, I've got an E5-2680v4 in mine as well, using it in a desktop role. Less hardware than @KC8FLB: 64GB, 3x M.2 NVMe, no HBA, but with two low end Workstation GPUs.

Idle is ~43w with Ubuntu running as host and Windows 10 running in a VM, each on its own GPU. ~150w at 85% CPU load tested on Ubuntu using Stress with 24 workers.

By comparison, my wife's desktop with a Ryzen 5 3600 has similar raw computing power benchmark-wise. It idles lower (~30w) running only Windows and with a bit less hardware (32GB, a single higher-tier GPU and one PCIe drive). Under load though, the consumption is a LOT lower. In testing (with the exception of GPU testing) it never broke 100w. The impact of a 65w TDP CPU vs the 120w TDP on the Intel.

On the other hand, the E5-2680 has 14 cores vs. 6 for the Ryzen.

Thanks for the information. My current box uses around 85W, and I'd like to stay around the same power budget. Ryzen looks like a better choice, but more expensive.

Short Version: New, bulk packaged with I/O Shield and Driver disk. Mine came well packed and double boxed. These are C612 chipset & support E5-v3 & v4. They don't have IPMI but do support S3 sleep, so probably best used as a desktop. One PCIe slot supports bifurcation (although I haven't tested that myself yet) (EDIT: Bifurcation tested to work, see Post #9 below). Seller accepted my initial BO of $140. Listing says shipping to U.S. only. Fujitsu D3348-B23 GS 2 Motherboard | eBay
Aaargh!! They have the listing so it can't ship to US as I am registered in UK. I've ordered and had items delivered to US many times before.

Anyone knowing of other deals on LGA 2011-3 motherboards, please post them! I know there's folks out there looking.
Yes, please!! Me too! I need an ATX or E-ATX board and 2x E5-2600 v4 CPU's too for a NAS I'm building.

I picked up one of these with a BO of $140. Paired it with an E5-2695 V4 (from this thread), a Noctua NH-U9DX i4, and 2 sticks of 32GB PC4-2133P RAM. Everything finally arrived and so I'll be setting it up soon.

Going to be replacing my current home server which has an e5-1650 v2, so going from 6 cores to 18 should be a pretty nice upgrade. Will update when I get everything put together

I would like to request for the latest bios for this motherboard, or a link I can download from.
Also if I have 4 sticks of ram (16GB each) , is there a particular order of ram slots I should place them in?

much thanks

Everything is available in the link on the first post: ftp://ftp.kontron.com/Products/Motherboards/EoL_Motherboards/EoL_ExtendedLifeCycle/D3348-B/ copy and paste into file explorer or what ever and grab the files you want. I forget the exact numbering, but fill the black slots first.

Pretty sure I have some stability issues going on with mine. Could be the free old quadro card from work. Free for a reason perhaps. it doesnt hard lock, but it gets a bit odd. nothing in the esxi logs as to what is going on either. Temp levels look good. Guess it time to "borrow" for testing a different quadro from the office.
