Model : X8SIL
BIOS Version : 1.2a (X8SIL2.723)
I cannot enter BIOS when I pressed "Delete" key by "Dell" USB keyboard; PS/2 keyboard works.
How do I disable the onboard NICs on my X8SIL-F mainboard? I have the BIOS 1.0c and search through the BIOS options to find a setting but I didn't succeed.
Will X8SIL-F motherboard with i3 process work with 32gb of RDIMM ECC?
I have X8SIL-V which is working fine with SATA HDD. After connecting 500GB SAS HDD to the X8SIL-V board I am unable see SAS HDD in BIOS or BOOT option or unable to install windows OS by either selecting IDE/RAID/AHCI in BIOS.
We have your X8SIL system. We tried to configure onboard RAID, but don’t see such option to do so. Are you getting a defective board?
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?
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?
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.
Can you help me to confirm if this chassis 813MTQ-R400CB:
would be compatible with X8SIL-F:
I saw from X8SIL-F optimized chassis list there are few 813MTQ::
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).
We have your X8SIL-F system. It sometimes reboot itself randomly. The only thing we noticed is that, around the time of reboot, IPMI logs error "OEM 0#x12 SEL", what does it indicate?
We have several X8SIL-F with 1U 4 bay Supermicro system( not sure about model ), and we recently see some automatic shutdown/power off. Noticed every time right before that happens, we see in IPMI log it gives error( impitool sel ): Type: OEM# 0x12 One of them is with older IPMI firmware, but another one is already with 2.66, but still gives that error, what that error mean?
Does motherboard X8SIL support RAID function?
I am using X8SIL mother board and I cannot create any onboard raid. Why?
I'm getting a CPU overheating error on X8SIL-F that is causing system not to boot. The System temp is showing 99C and the CPU temp is showing "Over heat". I unplugged the server overnight and it seemed to work fine for an hour or so. Then it started to beep. What could be causing this?
We install SATA 6Gb 12 pcs in to the configuration below. But only 11pcs HDD can be recognized. How to make all 12 pcs HDD being recognized? CHASSIS : CSE-826E1-R800LPB BACKPLANE : BPN-SAS-826EL1 M/B : X8SIL-F RAID CARD : Adaptec ASR-5445 (FW 18252) HDD : SATA 6Gb/s Hitachi HUA723020ALA640 *12pcs
Did X8SIL-F motherboard support 1.35V memory? If not, why does 1.35V memory show up in your memory compatible list?
I've got a supermicro x8sil-f motherboard mounted in a chassis which dont have connector for chassis intrusion. The machine alarms beep randomly. I've tried putting a jumper on the chassis intrusion pins but it's still red. any ideas? I had the chassis fans connected to a regular molex > fan splitter.
I have X8SIL with BIOS v1.2 (X8SIL1.819) from the website, but I cannot enter BIOS when I pressed "Delete" key by USB keyboard; PS/2 keyboard works ok. Do you have any fix for the problem?

I have X8DTH-iF motherboard with 2 E5450 processors and 32GB ECC reg memory. I use: 1) RevoDrive 3 as PCI-slot bootable drive (http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-revodrive-3-x2-pci-express-ssd.html) with Windows 7 ultimate (latest drivers), 2) ATI FirePro 3D graphic card (http://www.amd.com/US/PRODUCTS/WORKSTATION/GRAPHICS/ATI-FIREPRO-3D/V8800/Pages/v8800.aspx) (latest drivers), 3) Adaptec 6805 RAID controller (latest firmware and drivers). For some reason, these 3 devices do not work together. Any two of them work perfectly, but when I connect all 3, RevoDrive disappears from BIOS. What could be the issue? I tried to switch their places on PCI slots, it did not help.

How many AOC-S3108L-H8iR are needed for using 20 or 24 SAS HDDs on SYS-2048U-RTR4? If more than one, is it possible to build single RAID volume from all HDDs
I am looking for expandability options for 6048R-E1CR24 to expand it past the initial 24 Hard Drives. In a perfect scenario I'm looking to start with 22 drives in raid 10 (6048R-E1CR2) and then I'd like to add 16 drives in RAID 5 (Some other device) at a time (120TB). I need to get to around 600-700TB of raided storage, so I'm looking at adding 4-5 more enclosures .
I have 8 fans in my system, however IPMI is only able to see one fan.
Why is that so?

Installed Windows 2102 R2 OS in X9DRH-IF in raid 1 configuration successful and Windows work fine. However, when install a drive into SCU port, Windows will failed to boot. It give message "A disk read error occurred. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". It is BIOS bug?
Can you confirm that the X10Dai supports the following?
a. UEFI with Secure Boot support b. Hyper-V support
I have disks connected to AOM-S3108M-H8 on the X10DRWI in UEFI mode. The RHEL or any other OS will see the drive during the setup and install. But once it's installed and the OS is reliant upon the BIOS to have the drive set as a bootable option, the OS will not boot because the BIOS will not let us set the drive as a bootable UEFI device.
I am using the SSG-2028R-E1CR24N server and would like to add two drives to the back of the server to be used for OS. Your website states that this option is not supported, however I can see that the SSG-2028R-E1CR24H supports this option. Why does the SSG-2028R-E1CR24N not support the same feature?
