Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-7038A-I Mid-Tower Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C612 DDR4 2133/1866/1600

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 desktop workstation
Pros: silent, runs cool, easy to build, front to back cooling, top mount 900 watt power supply, perfect size midtower, lots of room, the performance of a HP z840 and a 10th the price, and kicks but*. Build it - don't mess with it - it will run forever.
Cons: nope
Other Thoughts: get two of the supermicro heatsinks SNK-P0050AP4

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 DDR4 284 pin
Pros: plase check the specs, should work with 288pin memory
Cons: no cons
Other Thoughts: My only concern with this is the spec, according to those you will need 284pin memory, today only 288pin DDR4 is available

Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-2028R-C1R4+ 2U Rackmount Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C612 DDR4 DIMM sockets

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Very dissappointed.
Pros: Holds lots of hard drives and fits in 2U
Cons: Very noisy, very slow boot up time and the LSI raid controller likes to frequently disappear on reboot, which works out great on a headless system dealing with boot issues more often then not.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, unfortunately it's now made me look bad for pushing so hard to build servers yourself and save companies money.

Would not recommend.

Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-5015A-EHF-D525 1U Intel Atom D525 Dual Gigabit LAN w/ IPMI Server Barebone

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great server!
Pros: Great 1U Atom server! The power supply fan is super silent!
Cons: This server was listed for $299 a week ago and I was planing to buy 3 of them. Then NewEgg decides to jack up the price $100. Ended up buying the parts separately (from newegg) and putting it together myself for $300

Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-5018A-FTN4 1U Rackmount Server Barebone FCBGA 1283 DDR3 1600/1333

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 SM SYS-5018A-FTN4
Pros: 4 Intel NICs
8 cores.
4 DIMMs
1U Shallow Depth

Works with VMware ESXi 5.5 U2 and 6.0.0
Cons: 6 SATA ports, only room for 4 bays.

I wish this was 16-17" long which would still fit in most shallow depth wall-mounted network racks which would allow it to support an additional 2 drives and PCIe card.
Other Thoughts: I run VMware ESXi 6.0 on this box with 6 VMs. I might buy another for pfSense/Snort/OpenVPN

Kingston 32GB DDR3
2 x 256GB SSD (Samsung 850 Pro)
2 x 750GB HDD (WD Black)

Categories > Server Barebones > TYAN > Tyan B7040G20Av4H Gt20A Dual Lga1356 500W 1U Rackmount Server Barebone System

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 defective backplane and drivers
Pros: dual cpu motherboard E5 at an affordable price
Cons: fans are way louder than most 1U systems
backplane doesnt have correct drivers so 3rd and 4th drive bays constantly flash
Other Thoughts: dont buy server barebones from "other sellers" just buy from newegg or welcome to a whole world of headaches and wasted time

what was meant to be a wonderful project turned into a nightmare and waste of time

never buying Tyan again.

Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-7048R-TR 4U Rackmount Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C612 DDR4 2133/1866/1600

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Best Deal
Pros: Total of 10 SATA ports on board. Economy price with enterprise quality and functionality! With optional rack mount kit which is very nice this is a great 4U server!
Cons: There are 2 Sata controllers that both support RAID mode. You have a maximum of 6 drives in a single Array on the 1st controller and only 4 on the other. If you want more you will have to invest in a GOOD RAID card. But honestly for the price this is freaking awesome!

Categories > Server Barebones > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SYS-5018D-MTF 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 1150 Intel C224 Express PCH DDR3 1600

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Works Well with FreeBSD 10.1
Pros: Works fine with FreeBSD 10.1R generic kernel: NICs are igb0 and em0.
Solid and stable so far.
Also compared with our similar 6 year old Super Micro servers, this one is much more quiet.
Comes with an 80+ Gold power supply.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: We bought three of them and they are all running well with no problems. CPUs are Xeon E3-1246 v3. As long as I check the load of our UPS, they are pretty energy efficient. Moreover, they are as quiet as recent desktop PCs. I like them so far.

Categories > Server Barebones > ASUS > ASUS TS700-X7/PS4 5U Pedestal Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602-A PCH DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Decent if you have older processors
Pros: Good MOBO layout with lots of space. Great HD chassis and system with separate but encased RAID backplane.
Cons: Even though it claims to support all Xeon E5-2600 series processors, it does not! Anything V3 and up simply won't fit, since the board notchings have changed. Anything V2 and up won't work until you upgrade the BIOS, which requires a V1 processor.

Power supply seems a little low for this system.
