got 2 of them, been working great

Jacob B., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: been running vmware esx 4.1, been working great
  • Pros: have had this model for over 2 years, no problems
  • Cons: you have to provide "cons" for a product, ok sure, its low profile- just be sure you get low profile add-on cards; also the device has slots for 8 drives but mobo only has 6 ports- not that it matters cuz I'm not using the built-in sata.

Power!

GARY M., Newegg
23 February 2012
  • Summary: I'm buying 5 more, so you know I like them. Supermicro has always been quick to RMA motherboards when purchased in a server. I wish Newegg stocked the IPMI option card.
  • Pros: I've had two of these running for over a year. Rock solid with 2 six core Xeons. Very fast for server type loads.
  • Cons: Has 8 SATA trays, all 8 have power, but only 6 are connected. So buy a cheap PCI-E/SATA card if you need 8 SATA running. Weighs as much as a large rock. Fill it full of disk drives and you will exceed 70 pounds, which means if you reship you will pay overweight charges.

Excellent

Cedric H., Newegg
23 September 2011
  • Summary: The majority of our production servers are Dell or HP. This server has the same or better build quality. I was impressed with this server when setting it up. I may start using these in production more often. Linux (ubuntu serve 10.04) handled all of the hw fine.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality. Now set up with qty 6 3tb drives. Replaced my old bacula backup server. 2 more drives (OS) on mirror with 3ware sata raid controller.
  • Cons: Manual is incorrect about the location on the motherboard for cpu1 and cpu2 and memory. It is backwards. Also flashing red leds on 2 of the hard drive bays. Disconnecting unused cables (for sas) from backplane cleared the flashing red lights.

Much better than the 1U

Steve B., Newegg

  • Summary: Set this up as our 3rd VMWare ESXi 4.1 server. I installed an Areca 1222 RAID controller (requires downloading drivers from VMWare) but so far it has worked fantastic.
  • Pros: * Clean easy to work on server (cable routing from front to back is great compared to other servers chassis I've worked on).
  • Cons: * Very noisy, even for a server (comparing to ASUS chassis and Dell/HP systems).

Solid server for a great price

Philip H., Newegg

  • Summary: If you're using SATA drives, disconnect the sideband cable (which you only need for SAS drives) from the backplane and the red drive error LEDs will stop flashing.
  • Pros: Solid construction, great cooling design, fairly quiet, plenty of config options. I'm running several of these with x5650 processors 96GB ram, and 8xSATA drives in RAID5 config. It runs lots of VMs without any problems. Easy to configure, and if you're using the on-board RAID, choose the Intel BIOS, it lets you do RAID5. Just make sure you're RAIDs are < 2TB.
  • Cons: Nothing at the moment.

  • Pros: Outstanding value that allows for a custom build.
  • Cons: None

Great server

Ryan G., Newegg
10 January 2010
  • Summary: I have 8x2TB drives running in RAID10 on this monster along with 24GB of ram and 2x5520 Xeon processors. This server is running Proxmox with 6 heavy load VM's on it and not breaking a sweat.
  • Pros: Great case, solid hardware. It was easy to route new SATA cables for the 3ware raid card I purchased. Server has been up for almost 3 months with no problems
  • Cons: If you want to run a 3rd party raid card, you will need longer fanout cables.

Great server

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Bought it for a file server and put a bunch of disks in it; works great. Setup was really easy and haven't had any problems with it. You can also get Supermicro's IMPI 2 card for $60 and have remote management.
  • Cons: None

Great case, easy to work with

Ryan G., Newegg
29 October 2009
  • Pros: Bought this to be a proxmox VM server in our datacenter space. Put 8x2TB drives in it, 24GB ram, and 2 quad core CPU's and it's wonderful. I installed a 3Ware 9650SE-8LP raid card and the sata backplane is easy to re-fish the sata cables.
  • Cons: Locking face plate would be nice

Nice server

Mary P., Newegg
17 August 2009
  • Summary: A little light on the BIOS settings, be careful with the disk detection when using an add-in RAID card.
  • Pros: Hardware all recognized by Proxmox, made a virt server out of this, 2 E5520s, 24gb Patriot 1066 RAM, and 4 Samsung 1TB drives in Raid10 on an Adaptec 5405. Couldn't be happier, easy to move around in the case and snake SATA cables for RAID array.
  • Cons: None, exactly what I expected out of a SuperMicro barebones.
