Great pfsense Rig

 

Works great as a low power server. Heat may be an issue, but I don't know for sure as I have it in a air conditioned room.

Low power, stable, 1U form factor

None

Do not buy the Bundle!

 

Good little system for basic services

I bought the bundle with this chassis. a Samsung SSD and 4 GB of memory. I assumed this configuration had been verified however when I received it I got 1 4GB RAM chip. I installed it and just recieved a long beep. After reviewing the Supermicro...

Great Little Firewall/Server

 

Don't forget that it needs this part in order to mount hard drives: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811994023 Depending upon your deployment, it may also need a fan to blow on the drives and/or CPU. You will likely end up gluing...

Light, small, Linux compatible RAID, IPMI

It's touchy with memory, so if you turn it on and it screeches at you, just try different memory and you should be OK. Getting the Adaptec RAID to work with Linux is slightly less intuitive than you might think simply because it actually shows the RAID...

Great little server

 

I really love Supermicro 1U servers and this one has all the great features you expect from them.

Dual CPU, redundant power supply, lots of memory, comes with heatsinks, works with Ubuntu server

Stupid Supermicro management tool that takes a separate DHCP address even if you don't want it

Really nice server

 

Supermicro makes reliable servers and this units is rock solid too. I never had power failures and some units have never been rebooted in 2 years, still working good.

This is the 5th one I buy ; I use them with FreeNAS or pfSense and I'll try pbxinaflash with the next one ; Runs cool and quiet, not power hungry and ipmi is a nice feature. No more kvm or screen attached to manage it ; Depth is really short so I can...

May be there should be holes for 2 HDD 2,5" instead of just one 3.5". I did the holes myself on 2 units

Love it!

 

I own a ton of SuperMicro 1U servers and I love them, but this particular model has got to be my favorite, supporting fast CPU's, lots of memory and dual power supplies. Some recent SuperMicro I've purchased had issues with Ubuntu installs detecting...

Dual hotswap power supplies, USB in front, lots of space for RAM, much quieter than similar servers. Ubuntu 12.04 server boots in less than 4 seconds on this box with an M4 SSD (after the POST is done.)

Installed DDR3 1600 RAM, but the motherboard only recognized it as 1066 on "auto." I had to modify the BIOS to force it to the 1600 speed RAM setting. Did a full memory test afterwards and passed with flying colors

Wrong Item

 

Now I'm waiting for my server to be shipped overnight to fulfill the contract with my client. I will update the review when I got the right item.

None so far

I received a big subwoofer RW-12D instead of the server, obviously I will not be able to install my system ; I talked to newegg and they are going to research if they have wrong codes in the warehouse "humm", well the box has another Newegg Shipping...

Great Micro Biz Server

 

Nics are server class. IPMI for under $400. That's wow. Low voltage itx server motherboard. Now that's eco friendly and easy to rack. Comes with all rack hardware too. Enterprise dual NIC and out of band management at this price ; Installed ESXi 3.5...

Fanless ventilation is a joke. 95C for CPU. Kill it, land fill, buy another. Evil. Some guy said he taped the front and sides, did the same and now hovering around 53C in the rack. Bought the SSD adapter which could have been drilled holes instead. All...
