Off the shelf, I've had relatively few problems with my Supermicro P6DCE+.
Aside from not supporting higher than 12 physical IDE devices (6 masters),
being mostly ACPI-driven, requiring some odd-ball 24-pin+8-pin+4-pin
power supply, and having a terrible board layout, I'm very
impressed with this motherboard and its features. I haven't experienced a
single lockup with the board, and it's been running in production using
2.4.19-pre2-ac2 now for 3 days without a hitch. Hyperthreading is enabled.
It's a dual 2.0GHz machine, and easily the fastest PC-based machine I've
ever used. It's got its quirks, which you'll see in practice, but aside
from them, i'd highly reccommend this motherboard.

hope this helps...
