I've had my X9DRD-7LNF4 for 6 years now, and it's been a great board. Still waiting on the Spectre / Meltdown BIOS for it. Also wish IPMI upgrades weren't so harrowing. They never go as planned. "wait for it to reach 100%". Sits at 23% forever instead because the IPMI resets entirely. I just wait 30 minutes then unplug the server so it reloads the IPMI. Worked so far.
