18589 The MB is X8SIL-F; Intel Xeon 3450 & Memory Modules 4GB DDR3 PC3L 10600R (HMT351R7CFR8A-H9) ; the BIOS is R1.2a.
We upgraded memory modules with 8GB DDR3 PC3L 10600R (HMT31GR7CFR4A-H9) and system can't boot up (No Display). Any idea?
17906 On X8SIL-F using i3-540 processor and using CentOS 6.4, an error message "Your BIOS is broken; DMAR reported at address fed93000 returns all ones!" is seen during startup. This was seen even after upgrading to latest BIOS R1.2a.

Is this a BIOS bug?
17314 I had Super Micro 5016i-MR server purchased from you awhile back. I am trying to revamp the server to support a new RAID configuration (the server was initially setup with one SATA Drive). In browsing through your online manual, it states it supports RAID and I have gone through the BIOS and made sure that the SATA settings are setup correctly. Unfortunately, the only options I have to set are SATA or AHCI, but there is no RAID option as indicated in the server manual. 10/25/2013

17048 We would like to know if there is some kind of way to read out the power consumption/draw via IPMI for the following Supermicro boards:

- Supermicro X9SCI/X9SCA
- Supermicro X8DTT-H
- Supermicro X8SIE
- Supermicro PDSMU
- Supermicro X8DTU
- Supermicro X8STI
- Supermicro X8SIL
- Supermicro X7DWU
- Supermicro PDSMI+

If so, how we can access them.
If not, is there are any other (recommended) ways to retrieve the power consumption (we would like to monitor them via a combo of Nagios/Graphite).
