Good larger than it should be... not compatible with older chasis
Pros: 10gbe -- The nics will cost $500 if purchased seperately.
Cons: LSI 2208 does not have IT firmware to my knowledge... Hard to figure out how to put it in jbod mode.
Other Thoughts: I like supermicro. Their warranty is absolutely the worst though... If you receive a bad product return it to the distributor. They are terribly bad. Will always charge for a repair, will take forever to repair the item.

Pros: Did work with dual Xeons, and supported 128 Gigs of ram at 1600 MHz. Has survived about a day of stress test with no memory errors.
Cons: Poorly organized bios lacking basic features. Appears to have an incompatibility with Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory DR x4 Intel Model KVR16R11D4/8I, in that the RAM does not seem to work as ECC RAM. At least not according to memcheck86. But memcheck86 could be wrong, or so I read online. It would be nice if the BIOS said something about whether the RAM was ECC or not, but it doesn't. I called supermicro tech support but they don't answer their phones it seems.

Repairs and replacements can be costly.
Being covered against failures pays off.
