It doesn't have IPMI, S7002GM2NR-LE have IPMI.

This motherboard is only cost-effective if you put 12GB or less ram:
According to (
if you use the black memory slot you will have a unbalance memory
configuration and it will cause a 23% memory performance drop.  As 4GB
memory sticks are very expensive, so if you want to put more than 12GB use
TYAN S7010. It's 150 dollars more expensive, but you can put 24GB using 2GB
memory sticks and have IPMI.
