      How to identify if MB supports Opteron 4200 CPU

      Support Up-to-Date AMD 4200/4100 CPU

      The ASUS KCMR-D12 is based on the latest AMD Lisbon platform to support 45nm Opteron™ 4200/4100 series processors. The high C/P value processor delivers 6-core/ 4-core multi-core, and outstanding performance-per-watt, saving up to 22% power consumption compared to previous Opteron™ 2400 series processor. The platform is designed for power efficient and cost efficient 2-way server solutions (Information is from www.amd.com).

      Built in Linux RAID 5 Solution

      For better data protection, the KCMR-D12 has built in Promise® ROMB (RAID on Motherboard) to support RAID 0, 1, 10 and RAID5 in both Windows and Linux operating system. The complete, fast and efficient RAID Solution benefit enterprise customers in maximizing SATA storage system performance.

      High 85%+ Vcore Power Efficiency

      The KCMR-D12 delivers 85%+ power efficiency, while CPU is under 30% to 90% working lord; it can reach up to 88% of the power efficiency and then save power bill for users. Hence, the longer you use, the more expenses you can save.

      High Quality Components for Greater System Reliability

      The solid and long life conductive polymer capacitors (sustaining 5,000 hrs @ 105℃) in KCMR-D12 ensure longer component life and lower power consumption — creating higher efficiency.

      ASUS Flex-E Provides Flexible Alternatives of Expansion

      The ASUS Flex-E Technology provides flexibility of using PCIe Gen2 interface and bandwidth. It automatically switches between 1 PCI-Ex16 link (Graphic card supported) and 2 PCI-E x8 link (for I/O expansion), allowing users to use PCI-E flexibly.

      ASUS PIKE SAS2 6G Storage Supported

      ASUS optional PIKE provides slim-sized and flexible storage options, SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved directly via a unique slot—without sacrificing expansion capability. Also, KCMR-D12 supports the latest SAS2 6Gb/s storage through PIKE interface, doubling transmission speed of SAS 3Gb/s. ASUS PIKE 2008 is for RAID 0, 1, 10 and 1E; PIKE 2008/IMR is for RAID 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50; PIKE 2108 is a hardware RAID solution, which can support high performance RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60. The ASUS PIKE even provides users the multiple I/O solution and RAID functions.

      Built in BMC engine, IPMI 2.0 + KVM-over-IP enabled by ASMB4 Module

      The optional ASMB4-iKVM provides remotely real-time and full control via accessing to the system based on BIOS-level keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime.
