For the Supermicro X12SAE-5, we have an LGA1200 platform built on an Intel W580 chipset. This supports both 10th and 11th Gen CPUs and 128GB of 3200MHz Unbuffered ECC or standard DDR4 across four slots. We have PCIe 4.0 support with a Single x16 or 8×8 configuration on the slots and a single Hyper M.2 at the top for your Gen4 storage, and two more Ultra M.2 for Gen 3.

Gigabyte W480 Vision D – TechPowerUp

The Gigabyte W480 Vision D is a striking motherboard. Gigabyte has done a good job of creating a white theme that stands out visually, but still fits a wide array of components. While the RGB LED implementation lags behind some other boards in terms of complexity and customization, diffusion is excellent, and the placement blends in seamlessly with the board’s theme.

Out of the box, performance was excellent for the Gigabyte W480 Vision D. Memory overclocking was good as well, as I reached 4000 MHz CL16 stable with my Trident Z Neo kit. CPU overclocking is locked down on the W480 chipset, but VRM thermals were great when running Prime95 at stock settings, never exceeding 45 °C.

SuperMicro X12SAE

For every current W480 model on the market, there are at least 4-5 Z490 variants, which makes Intel’s workstation platform slim pickings for choice. One of the reasons behind this is down to necessity, with workstations platforms opting for functionality and core feature sets over bling and fancy designs. What the Supermicro X12SAE lacks in visual appeal, it makes up for in its feature set with much of what we have come to expect from its mid-level professional models.

ASRock W480 Creator

The ASRock W480 Creator is aimed primarily at creative minds and content creators. You notice this very quickly in the lavish furnishings. In addition to Bluetooth, WLAN with 802.11ax support and two really fast network cards, it also offers support for ECC memory and Nvidia Quadro cards.

The board layout is very well thought out and has been designed to accommodate many additional cards. The already existing PCIe 4.0 support is a great feature, provided that Intel supplies the corresponding processors.
