Chose CPU carefully
Pros: Great idea, better granularity than standard blades with regard to power, and can run on a single 110V/15 AMP circuit at full load (as opposed to the dual 220 single phase 30+ amp circuits required by the standard 7U blade units. Good network connectivity, built in management module. Redundant power supplies (1400W).
Cons: Not for the new builder. Would like to see an additional ethernet NIC per node (so iSCSI SANs can employ MPIO). and put general network access on a 3rd general purpose NIC.
Other Thoughts: Just a note that per the supermicro website, use processors with max acp <=80W. The HE series would be optimal as they adjust power consumption automatically depending on load.
