GIGABYTE Server MD60-SC0 Motherboard Review: Haswell-EP with QSFPby Ian Cutress on December 3, 2014 10:00 AM EST
GIGABYTE Server MD60-SC0 In The Box
Server motherboards are typically quite spartan, giving only a couple of SATA cables in the box to help facilitate non-standard use. Due to the orientation of the motherboard and the layout of the dedicated SATA ports, GIGABYTE Server steps a little further in this regard by providing two mini-SAS to SATA cables for the two headers on board. This allows the 8 of the 10 SATA ports provided by the chipset to be used without extra hardware needing to be purchased. Also in the box is a rear IO shield, manuals and driver disks.
