    Intel S5520SC motherboard, BIOS 54   Very Low performance

    NEO007

      Hi,

       

      I have recently build a new server and the performance is very poor respect to what I expected.

       

      Configration:-


      - Power Supply  700W

      - Intel S5520SC motherboard, BIOS 54 (updated to latest version 10/11/10)

      - dual E5620 2.26GHz Xeons

      - Intel BXSTS100A Active heat sinks with fixed fans

      - 3x8GB ECC Registered RAM Kingston

      - ROCKET RAID 2460X4

      - 1 X SEGATE SAS 2TB HDD 7200 RPM  RAID JBOD

      - 3 X  FUJITSU 146GB   HDD 15K  RPM  RAID JBOD

      - OS Windows 2003 R2 Server updated to latest patches

       

      Issues :-

      1. Server MB update CD does not show any screen after loading the application on startup
      2. Windows does not reboot. After reboot it shows a black blank screen. MB shows one green light.
      3. Very poor performance as per VM's. Basically I build this server for VM's only.

       

      Please help me resolve these issues as I am really loosing my faith in Intel MB's

       

      Thanks,
