nice piece of hardware

  • Summary: I am very pleased with this bare server. the board has server grade features. Mine is running a xeon, needed for vt-d pci passthrough. It can generate a bit of heat, and I upgraded the fan that has best sight of the CPU. there is not alot of room for drives if you add a 2nd drive cage for more than 2 2.5" drives. you'll have to find short or properly angled SATA cables and modify power feeds to drives as well.

Excellent, quiet 1U

  • Summary: This is a very well-built chassis and while not what a "normal" person would call quiet, it is the quietest 1U server I have used. There are P4-era servers in my rack that are louder in the power-off standby state than this is while running at full fan speed. It includes both power cords and all the screws you might need to install drives, plus a large assortment of other screws which must serve a purpose for someone.
