That supermicro is a plain server board as it seems, not workstation oriented, does it support sli?
After reading up on the specs, I have to disagree. While this board has definite server features, it seems more easily suited for a workstation deployment. All of the PCIe 16x slots are electrically 16x 3.0. While is doesn't seem to be SLI enabled, if it's going to used as an actual workstation, SLI wouldn't be needed. One card could be used for video output and the other two can be used for GPGPU compute, presuming NVidia cards are going to be used. For example a GTX series gpu and one or a pair of Tesla cards. This board could easily perform both jobs, server and workstation, simultaneously. Given the right CPU's, a generous amount of ram and ample storage, it would excel at each.
@Knoxx29 A word of caution, this board pulls a fair amount of wattage fully loaded. Have read in a number of places that a 1000w power supply is recommended, but a 1200w would give a fair amount of wiggle room. Very nice choice of board though.
Out of curiosity, what are going to do with it?

That MotherBoard if i buy it will be used for Crunching paired with 2 X 14 Cores Xeons, not all slots of Rams need to be populated and if the CPU i pick has dedicated graphic i wouldn't need a Graphic card and in case i need it even a 20€ one would be more than enough.

If you're referring to a pair of E5-2683, E5-2695 or E5-2697's(all V3 Haswell's) that you will have going to do number crunching, it would be well worth buying CPU's with fewer cores, such as E5-2640 or E5-2667(again V3 Haswell's) and shifting the saved money to a capable GPU.
If you're intending to get Broadwell based CPU's, you'll really want to get a pair of E5-2667v4's(8core/16thread) and get a dedicated GPGPU or two for floating point compute operations.
The graphics aren't on CPU, it's on the motherboard; ASPEED AST2400 BMC.
Of course this is general advice I'd give any client of mine. If you know for a fact that most of the crunching you're going to be doing is CPU/RAM bound, then your plan will serve you well and you can expand later should the need for floating point compute become a factor.

Yeah, you need an 8 module kit, I have a regualr ddr4 non ecc and it works fine. 8x8gb, or 8x16gb would be optimal

This is a nice board! And it's SLI/Crossfire certified so there's lots of room for a variety of usage models. I really like the symmetrical layout of the board components. For what you get the current price of $399, as of this typing, is decently good. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AI9IZN6/?tag=tec06d-20

True, and very important if using sli to adhere to the manual in terms of gpu slot placing; I had some trouble when not in the recommended slots

I suggest that you start a new thread about it.

Make sure to set the timings to 5-5-5-15, command rate to 2T, and voltage to 2.1v.

If it doesn't work, try to boost the NB voltage a little.

You don't check DDR stability through the eventlog, but by running MemTest86 or HCI MemTest.

Ok i trying to figure out if memtest shows any issue as i dont get error through that. As i see test 3 goes fast to 10% then slows down to a snail throughout.

Also i have the graphic card in pcie x16 2.0 i dunno if that causing issues as i tested it in pcie x16 1.1 it runs like nothing happened but i get stuttering

Sounds like the Northbridge needs more voltage. Your new RAM uses lower timings and it puts more stress on the Northbridge.

You can verify by running Prime95 blend test with 80% of your RAM and MSI Kombustor all together. This should create enough stress on the Northbridge to see if its causing lockups.

@Edwired : Let's keep it on topic, this issue should really be in motherboards section or general hardware IMHO

A better one eh?? :) As far as I know, since X58 Xeon boards such as the SR-2, there's never been another overclocking board like it.. But I think that's down to Intel taking it from the CPU's?..... Such a shame..

Well, today i have found in an old box that i had in a corner 2 x Xeon E5530, let's see how far i can push it, i bet i will kill it:laugh:

Even 3.5GHz will be enough.

For me I'd go for the 3570k simply because it's slightly newer and it would be more efficient.. Maybe not that much faster but it would be the system of choice for me.. One of the reasons I'm using my 2600k over my 920's, yes slightly faster maybe and can handle more ram easily, but the 920 eats the power... That said when I was using it at 4.6Ghz, it wasn't that far off a 4770k at stock (with some basic benchmarking tests I had done.. gaming wise anyways) but it was using a load more juice otherwise...

One of the reasons I'd like to get some of the newer Dell servers from work.. More cores, better efficiency and more power to crunch :D
