Consumer review by: Brandon M. (newegg.com)

Worked great...for 4 months.

 

Have the product out for RMA now. I've built dozens of these to be used as PFSense firewalls. Never had a problem until I used this one at my house.

Quiet, efficient, inexpensive. Unlike some reviews I've read, I never had trouble with overheating. Server closet at home doesn't have direct AC and ambient air temperature stays ~75F during the summer.

Network interfaces only worked for 4 months. - One NIC started dropping twice a day for a week or so then started occurring more frequently to the point I couldn't sustain more than 5-7 pings before I would drop 30. - The 2nd on-board NIC started the...

Love this rig

 

I added two fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608033 to this rig and it runs quiet and strong. To mount the fans we used double sided tape on the bottom of the fan and left the top bare (the top case holds it fine). We...

Quiet and low power

Perfect Hyper-V Cluser Server

 

As a smaller IT firm building out our datacenter, these servers have worked well and will allow for future growth.

First and foremost the ability to view/access the entire boot process including BIOS and RAID configuration via the IPMI java console is priceless. Dell requires iDRAC Enterprise for the same features at a cost of $100s ; The mother board is perfect...

Super Micro requires that both power supplies are powered or it beeps. When configuring the server in an office environment this generates excess noise that really isn't needed when setting up the server ; Also still working out how to properly...

Great for pfSense and more...

 

In general, I love SuperMicro servers for their value as compared to other vendors. I have their Atom C2000 based server as well and they are great. This was no exception. It's perfect for a custom solution such as firewalls, infrastructure servers...

1. Extremely efficient ; 2. Intel NICs ; 3. Does support 8Gb of RAM ; 4. IPMI ; 5. Great chassis

1. Heats up quickly if kept in a rack ; 2. Power supply fan can be noisy for some people
