This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-7047GR-TPRF 4U Rackmountable / Tower Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 DDR3 1333/1066/800
Pros: Cooling! It's ideal for multiple GPUs (4 PCIe 3.0 slots!)- the separate video card compartment rules and additional fans are awesome. Keeps my two GTX Titans at 60C on full load (and 38% GPU fan). Redundant power supplies. Hot swappable HDDs with plenty of slots. Also, the HDD adapter board is awesome.. just screw them into the adapter bracket and jam them in and they plug right into their SATA slots. The fans and PSU are also modular/swappable. Super spacious, and relatively quiet considering there are 10 fans in total. Really well thought out build.
Cons: BIOS a bit limited, no CPU overclocking options... then again I don't think Xeon E5's can be OC'd without a lot of hacking. A small con is that the onboard video is non-nvidia, which I don't think would be a problem with Windows but in Linux it's hard to get to all the GPU options if the display is not running nvidia and X..
Other Thoughts: If you plan on needing a SATA CD/DVD drive, you should buy a MOLEX to SATA power converter, since the extra power on the PSU is all MOLEX. Otherwise you will have smooth sailing. I love this system!
