Solid workstation

Will T., Newegg
11 November 2013
  • Summary: If you want a solid performing, quiet workstation for a reasonable price, you can't go wrong. Just be prepared to provide your own technical support. My rating would be a 4 if I were to factor in the support issues, however, I am restricting my rating to the machine itself so I am giving a 5.
  • Pros: I bought one of these with a Core i7 processor, 16G ram, a handful of hard drives and a GTX model graphics card. I am using it as a combination Linux server/gaming machine/workstation and I have yet to really tax this system. I like nearly everything about it: -It is super quiet, even when runnin...
  • Cons: ASUS, feel free to respond here. I would love to make use of the second drive bay to have a total of 8 hot swap trays. Sure, it looks possible, you can remove the grill and the chassis mounts exist; I have enough SATA ports, surely I could just go on ASUS' website and order the backplane, cage an...

10 November 2013
  • Pros: I need help before buying! verified owner help me!! Or manufacture help me!! thanks! Im looking to buy this barebone, everything looks great!!! I love the case and simplicity of it! And this is one of the best x79 motherboards available. I plan to run this with a, i7 4820K ivy E , 16gb ddr3, GTX ...
  • Cons: None! This barebone is simply amazing!! Quad sli ready, with a 1350 watt psu, with 8 pci-e connectors.. You can go Xeon or you can go i7 This is a true X79 beat of a workstation platform. I intend to use for Gaming, encoding, and some 3d graphic design, and testing.

ivor

Ivor I., Newegg
12 May 2013
  • Summary: 3x titan + 1 quadro. So far no hiccups. Running CUDA sims for 3 days steady with no drastic temperature peaks.
  • Pros: Easy and quick to deploy, more affordable alternative to 2/4u racks
  • Cons: No cons, minus the previous ssd confusion with mounting. Can directly mount on one side only and it's sufficiently secure.

Issues with SSD mounting

Ivor I., Newegg
3 May 2013
  • Pros: Good package of quality parts.
  • Cons: I have yet to find a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter that works with the hotplug HDD tray. A bit of a issue if you want to use SSD, or the SSD cache feature as advertised. Contacted tech support which has no knowledge of this problem. Tried OCZ adapter, Silverstone, and a generic one. All doesn't align the tr...

Nice Workstation

Yogesh P., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • Summary: I would try to provide regular update to you.
  • Pros: It was easy to configure. It runs cool. Do not have any issue in assembly it. I am yet to test it in all respect. Still now it look fine to me Things you may need to buy a) CPU ( of course) b) GPU card c) Hard Drive d) Physical memory No need to buy any cables
  • Cons: a) It is pretty big and heavy. b) Initially it was difficult to boot the system first time with 24 GB RAM ( 8 GB * 3). I later tried to boot system with 16 GB ( 8 GB * 2) and everything went fine .Later on I added another 8 GB easily into system. Probably I ad encounter the issue since I building...
