    It seems to me that this is normal distribution channel price.

    What would you use these board for ? Did you consider X11SDV series ?

    Interesting... Never seen it priced that low.

    Considering use as a general-purpose workstation (+ hackintosh, if possible)

    X11SDV looks like an awesome platform, and could be perfect for my needs, but a little overkill.

    I wasn't planning to upgrade my current setup (Gigabyte GA-6LISL-based) beyond a Broadwell (w/ Iris Pro) Xeon. This board comes in at around the same price as doing that + allows me to re-use my SATA DOM as well as add NVMe storage.

    Thanks, snatched one. This forum is making me broke.
    It looks like quite good all in one VDI playground. Or in worst case an overpowered firewall/IDS/IPS.

    The seller has some more interesting stuff listed today... Xeon D systems with 10G.

    There was an ITX system that sold before I could get to it; maybe someone should snag the 1U FlexATX ones before I'm tempted to build *another* storage box!

    Thanks.

    How does that work; will it allow you to use the iGPU (as opposed to AST2400) via the DVI-A port, or just enable iGPU for virtualization?

    I received my board yesterday. Planning to design and 3D print an 80mm fan shroud/mount, as it only has a passive cooler.

    This is a quirky motherboard.



    I use this unit for Virtual Hosted Desktop server. I use the iGPU for virtualisation only – Remote Desktop. I use the DVI for local access via VGA.

    I learned about this board by installing Win 10. Win 10 will load all the drivers automatically. I could not find any way to download them from the SM servers.

    This guide may help you to use the board for a CentOS server.

    Install Intel Media Studio SDK and GPU driver from Intel Media Server Studio 2018 R1 – CentOS 7 (7.4.1708) | Any IT here? Help Me!

    I hope you have fun.

    If you make a 3dprint kan you share the file? I also need to cool the cpu. Anyone have any other great ideas about cooling it?
