Summary: Looking forward to getting this thing loaded up with an LSI 9271-8i CacheCade Pro setup. Should be interesting to see how it does running ESXi.
Pros: Quality server, Compact yet versatile, Great Specs, Good Packaging, Good product support from Intel.
Cons: Shipped with a VERY old BIOS version that does not work with many E5-26XX series processors including the V2s so now my only options are to buy a compatible CPU just to update the BIOS, or return the whole thing at my expense. Either way, not cool!
