The main supporting features of this motherboard are its large number of Mini-SAS and network ports, which provide storage and RAID options right out of the box, and also plenty of expansion options. The LAN connections also supply basic network connectivity, and provide the option to install faster network cards into the Mezzanine expansion slot. The board also comes equipped with IPMI/iKVM as standard features.
Here we get our first look at the ASRock EP2C612D16FM motherboard. With a size of 12" x 10.5", this is a very small server motherboard, but there are a massive amount of features packed into this tiny area. The ASRock EP2C612D16FM motherboard supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors and DDR4 memory.
Here we get a look at the main storage connections for the ASRock EP2C612D16FM motherboard. We can see the two Mini-SAS connectors next to the four white SATA III ports. Up at the top we have a Type A USB 3.0 connection, with a blue USB 2.0 header below. Next to those there is a SATA SGPIO header, and a USB 3.0 header. Following down the left side, there is a TPM header, a speaker header, an auxiliary panel header, and system panel headers. The CPU2 power connection is right below the square chipset heat sink.
Moving on to the rear right side of the motherboard, we see the white Mezzanine connector with chassis ID jumper blocks. Following along we find a PMBUS mode jumper block, PSU SMBus, and BMC SMBus header. In-between those there is CPU1 power connector, and the ATX power connector to the right.
On the front left of the motherboard we have a CPU PECI jumper, and two fan connectors. The two big connectors are con ports; these are used to connect the system to a back plane.
On the front right side of the motherboard, we find two more con ports; there are four in total. Two more fan headers round out the connections for the board.
Looking at the back I/O ports, we can see the first stack consists of two USB 2.0 ports, followed by a serial port, and a VGA port just below. Next, we have a UID switch, and two LAN ports. The last stack has an IPMI LAN port at the top, and two USB 3.0 ports below.
Here we get an edge on view of the four con ports at the front of the motherboard.
Here we get a look at the new socket 2011-3; this one is the narrow version. The mounting holes will fit all your standard heat sinks.
