This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5017R-MTF 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 2011 Intel C602 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: I bought this as my backup server for my operation. It runs VMware ESXi 5.1 with the following setup:
Cons: The board has only 5 fan headers, none of them is for the CPU fan. I would prefer having a fan and a copper heat sink. The stock fan is aluminum, although it seems to be able to keep the CPU at around 39 C with no load.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a solid setup. Should I need more blade servers, I would for sure buy more of these.
