Powerful Server at a Great Price

MICHAEL G., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Summary: I've been a long time Asus customer, and when it came time to pick up a new server for a virtualization project I didn't look at anything else. Like most of the Asus servers, you do need to understand the supported hardware, but if you read the Asus documentation and follow the specs, this server is...
  • Pros: Great capacity in 1U; affordable, and easy to work on.
  • Cons: Slightly louder than some of my other Asus 1U chassis, but still perfectly acceptable for a home office.

  • Cons: Asus ASWM Enterprise management software does not work with Windows 2012 Server.

Solid option for Linux

Eric M., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Pros: Went together easily. I didn't want to use BIOS raid when the software RAID in linux is almost as fast and much more reliable. Installed Debian Wheezy and has been solid since. Previous reviewer seems to be blaiming ASUS for Windows driver problems... The stock wheezy kernel (3.2.0.X) has no reli...

Bad NICs

Vitaly T., Newegg
29 March 2013
  • Summary: The server comes with old BIOS which has NO RAID options unless you download and install a new update. The 4 Intel NICs are not integrated properly on this motherboard. Using latest intel drivers for Win2008r2 server, all NICs drop the links and reconnect every 5-10 minutes.
  • Pros: price size factor
  • Cons: Bad NICs BIOS not up to date No RAID available
