This was precisely my concern, that (ASRock in my case) are just sending back another ticking time bomb.So I waited few days and file support form about all my 3 boards( the old 2 and the brand new I just got) to supermicro by giving them my serial numbers. The response was that I have to send all 3 boards back to them for RMA including the new one I just got.
What do you guys make of that ? Are they we just swapping the boards so I can feel better, but still got a board that could die any time ? It seems they can't tell by the serial number now and it seems the revision don't meant anything either ?!
A (TLDR) log of my experience -> https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/how-long-your-asrock-c2550d4i-or-c2750d4i-lasted.45445/page-8#post-470523
In short, my 'new' C2750D4I is en route to me next week, so I asked ASRock and PBTech if this is definitely going to be a fixed version and how to identify it as such. No response from PBTech. ASRock responded with "We will have some test to ensure the board is working fine before ship out to customer" which was not exactly reassuring.
Of course they are going to send a working board, but no clue as to whether it will keep working after any given reasonable time!
Sounds identical to my ASRock. What they wanted as proof, aside from the usual PSU/RAM swapouts, was a picture of IPMI sensor readings, specifically the voltages. If you've only got 5VSB and 3VSB, as well as battery, but nothing else shows sign of life, then that's a good indication.Well, it seems like I finally hit this bug with my Supermicro A1SRi-2558F. Purchased 30-11-2015. Suddenly stopped working. On startup, no beeb, no screen, no nothing, even with nothing connected to the mobo. IPMI works (except power up/down/restart etc.). Is there any way to confirm it's actually this bug or something else before I try to RMA?
