BTW I think this is going to be in the C206 chip set (see http://ark.intel.com/m/chipset/53101). Will probably test and have more info later.- Onboard video is Matrox G200ew. Assumably, with an E3-xxx5 Xeon the IGP would take over. Even though there is only a VGA port on the motherboard (no DVI/HDMI) and most of the the "HD" aspects of the IGP would never be used, mainly I'd want the IGP for the hardware accelerated display driver.
Where do you see that it supposed to support 32GB of ECC unbuffered RAM? 5500 chipset boards dont even support that much ECC Unbuffered RAM. Do you have a copy of the manual or something because i have not seen anything from SM regarding specs for these boards.It's supposed to take 32GB ECC unbuffered RAM. That means 4 x 8GB. But I can't seem to find 8GB ECC unbuffered modules. Do they exist?
The 6-series and C200 series board's integrated 10/100/1000 supports both the 82579LM and 82579V. Hence why one sees them more these days.Also i noticed that it uses IntelÂ® 82579LM LAN chip which is fine if you are running windows, but there is no support for *NIX at this time.
Pleasures of being an early adopter i guess
Sweet! Keep us posted. Guessing you got an early board since I don't think these are released.Finally got a replacement X9SCM-F, AcmeMicro was useless - had to go to Supermicro directly for an advance-replace. Video corruption is gone and system freezing is also gone, now I can finally do some testing.
