    Yes it will work. VGA video on that board is not handled by the CPU but by the onboard BMC which also controls video for the IPMI. I actually run the X11SSM-F with a e3 1220 V5 but i'm trying to get out of my E3 stuff.

    Thank you. How has the board behaved? Any specific reason for ditching the E3 I should reconsider?

    Great board if you value the expansion slots in Matx form factor. I crammed 4 I350-T4 in it for alot of ports. Trying to get out of these E3 1151 boards for some of the typical reasons expressed on these forums. DDR4 is expensive, DDR4 Udimms are expensive. 4 cores can be limiting if you're trying to do anything more than lightweight virtualization. Lack of PCI E lanes can curtail storage if you're trying to pack in nvme drives. But everything always comes down to needs. These boards can be great for low cost stuff. You can used pentium G4560 or G4400 in these. Can also get high clock cpus in this 1151 stocket which in 2011-0 or 2011-v3 are expensive.

    I know what you mean about need. I have the X9DRi-F.
    Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X9DRi-F
    Bought it when the 2011's launched, mounted it in the chassis then put everything in storage and moved. I've probably not put 8 hours of use on it even now that I'm starting to go through my 'junk'... Seems like there was a bug in the early 2011 platform I need to investigate.
