NVRaid is Awful

 

Avoid all NVRaid. See the NVidia forums for just how many problems this causes.

Overall good value package, quiet, supports quad core, flexible configuration

Under Windows 2003 x64 using the NVidia NVRAID, when the RAID is rebuilding, the system is completely non-responsive, and the NTFS volumes are corrupt when the rebuild is done

Great virtualization server!

 

Yes, its loud. Deal with it. Low profile server boxes with high density components are going to be loud in order to keep cool. This machine isn't for your office or living room, its for the server room in your basement or the datacenter at your company.

Great virtualization box! Coupled with the two Barcelona CPUs I installed on this machine, this thing SCREAMS running Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008. Very quick to set up. Already has all the SAS/SATA wires routed, you just have to plug in the CPUs,...

Does not POST with Barcelona quad-core CPUs due to shipping with months old beta BIOS which the latest BIOS fixed. Tyan tech support is awesome, and they would have flashed the BIOS for me for free, but I decided to go with their alternate suggestion...
