Nice setup


Have not had any issues to date. Works as expected. If an additional internal power tap is not required - I would purchase again. NewEgg's excellent service!!!

Additional Power Supplies hard to get ; Pike 2108 hard to get

Inexpensive; highly expandable (48GB, 2x CPUs); 2U design takes up little space; comes with slim DVD/CD unit (the Asus site shows this as an optional component, but both Asus server platforms I've ordered from Newegg came with it pre-installed)

Onboard "RAID" is actually a hybrid software solution and does not work with many OSs (works with Windows 2003/2008 but is *not* compatible with VMware) - also, onboard RAID is limited to 0/1/10 config, no RAID 5/6/etc; Onboard NICs chew up a lot of...
