5 out of 5 eggsExcellent server

Pros: A solid server, builds like a tank. It is a wonderful piece of engineering. You will be amazed by just looking at it. The internal cables are professionally routed, no clutter at all, everything feels clean. On the front, there are 8 hot swappable drive bays and 3 easily accessible 5.25 bays, all are high quality.

Cons: The fans are quite loud, but it is ok since I put the server in basement. The good thing is the fans are removable, you can replace them with your own fans if you want to.

Other Thoughts: I bought two cooler master N 520 92mm cpu cooler, but end not using them because the server comes with two passive fanless heatsinks. The passive heatsink is more than enough to cool the cpus since there is an air duct inside the server. Basically, the air duct direct the air flow around the heatsink to keep them cool.

I am running dual xeon E-5620 Westmere 2.4Ghz cpus, currently 8GB RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat box, solid build.

Pros: Using it as a ZFS fileserver running OpenIndiana oi_148 with a single Xeon X5650 CPU and 12GB RAM (3x 4GB), installation went flawlessly and all hardware was detected properly. Performance is great. Uses passive CPU heatsinks (SYS7046A-T has active heatsinks) but has a nice easy to mount shroud for airflow.

Cons: This model uses the long, narrow hot-swappable power supplies, and only comes with 1. It's quite a bit louder than the SYS7046A-T which we also have in production. If you're going to use the machine for home use, if it's not isolated into another room, you might want to consider one of their chassis with larger (quieter) power supply fans.
