Just over two years, then poof

Allen L., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Pros: Small footprint, quiet operation.
  • Cons: Raid is intel ICH10R software raid, so no good for vmware. After a bit over two years of operation, the system has failed. Both power supplies sit there clicking. Occasionally the fans come on and it looks like it's booting, then just shuts down again. No telling if it's the power supplies, mothe...

got 2 of them, been working great

Fred J., 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. one of the heat sinks that came with was bent-up badly, sup...

SuperMicro Rocks!

Daryl M., Newegg
6 September 2013
  • Summary: SuperMicro support has always been excellent anytime I have ever contacted them for support on any of their SuperServer machines. Even for machines that are well out of warranty, they have always been helpful!
  • Pros: This machine has a great build quality and is an excellent value for the price. Just like all the other SuperMicro server chassis I have used previously, this one does not disappoint. This is a barebones chassis which lets you customize the server with the type of attributes you need to suit the ...
  • Cons: The current revision of the motherboard that ships with this machine is newer than what it indicated in the paper manual included with it. The CPU and RAM socket layouts are different on the motherboard than what is shown in the paper manual. The silkscreen on the board is correct of course, and ...

Not long lasting for a server

Steve B., Newegg
5 June 2012
  • Summary: I gave this server rave reviews when I purchased it 16 months ago and it's been humming along until recently. Last week it halted with a low voltage indicator on the RAID controller.
  • Pros: See my original review from 1/18/2011
  • Cons: See my original review from 1/18/2011

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.

Had to replace MB after 4 mo

Scott K., Newegg
13 November 2011
  • Summary: This is a mission critical server in our office. To have it out of service for 1.5 days is a huge drain.
  • Pros: Powerful system, handles all the needs of my office
  • Cons: This unit was placed into service about 4 months ago. Motherboard failed on Wednesday night for no clear reason. Supermicro did overnight a new MB and system is back up and running again.

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
18 January 2011
  • 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). * 8 x 3.5" bays provide for a nice size RAID. * Includes 2 CPU heat sinks. * Includes DVD/CD-ROM
  • Cons: * Very noisy, even for a server (comparing to ASUS chassis and Dell/HP systems). * No documentation on the hotswap drive back plane (never have figured out how to connect the RAID card's drive activity connectors properly). * Built in RAID is SOFTWARE, not true hardware (this seems to be common i...

Solid server for a great price

Philip H., Newegg
21 July 2010
  • 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 BI...
  • Cons: Nothing at the moment.
