    I wouldn't recommend this board since it includes 82574L NICs that have known hardware errata that I have suffered myself. They are also quite old now (3+ years). Any new server board will include I350-based NICs and these seem to be rock solid in my testing. Reply

    Odd that they left the remaining 8 PCIe lanes un-used. It would have been a better idea to route them to that last PCIe slot, instead of that slot using 2 lanes from the chipset. Reply

    Do you have any experience with the i210 series? That seems to be the new value choice after the 82574L. Reply

    its funny you mention that, I had HP replace a motherboard in one of my clients Pro 4300 SFF workstations and the new board had an i210, the old board had a Broadcom, so it seems people are moving toward the i210 on the newest hardware revisions. Reply

    i210 would be fine. Anything except 82574L... Reply

    Any chance of getting a screen shot of the BIOS screen for Advanced/PCI Subsystem Settings? We are very interested in a motherboard that supports the latest NVIDIA Tesla / Xeon Phi boards (which the GA-7PESH3 motherboard support), but we have not been able to find specific information about this Gigabyte motherboard. The key would be for the BIOS screen to have a setting for "PCI 64bit Resources Handling"/"Above 4G Decoding". Can you confirm if this setting exists for the GA-6PXSV3? ASUS has a competing motherboard with a similar setting in the BIOS, but it does not meet our requirements. Reply

    "The GIGABYTE BIOS may not be UEFI"
    It is UEFI, notice the UEFI shell item.

    "GIGABYTE Server GA-6PXSV3 we are reviewing today is aiming to supply enough at the lower end of the extreme workstation segment."

    its hard to pick the April fool news as this cant be considered "the lower end of the extreme workstation segment." at 349€95 http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00140021.html surely, with only a single socket and not enough PCI-E slots to fill with a reasonable amount of fast PCI-E SSD's plus gfx cards....

    I had a workstation board by supermicro in the slot 1 era of P2 and P3 and it's bios was very graphical and used a mouse. I don't understand why the bios interface went from that to an 80s era design and stayed there. Reply

    People buy motherboards based on how they look? Sheesh, I'm getting old. Reply

    I unfortunately just found out the 82574L nic is not supported by intel in server 2012 r2. Microsoft drivers only. Reply
