5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value

Pros: This machine is exactly what I needed, at a very reasonable price

Cons: None that I am aware of

Other Thoughts: It is true, no driver disk is shipped with the unit, but it is easily downloaded, follow the manufacturer link provided by newegg, really not a problem and the iso provides everything you need.

Ravi B. mentions video. There is no onboard video, if you are not going to install a video card make sure the CPU you choose supports video, for example the Xeon E3-1225

For my needs, this box will sit in a closet and host a couple of apps, no real video needed and don't want to lean on CPU for it.
Here is my build:
- SuperMicro SYS-5038A-IL N82E16816101793
- Crucial DDR1600 RAM (2x8GB) N82E16820148770
- Intel Xeon E3-1241 CPU N82E16819117315
- Seagate 1TB SSDD x 3 N82E16822178381
- Samsung DVD-ROM N82E16827151279
- EVGA PCI-E 2.0 Refurb. Video Card N82E16814130880

Box is running Windows 2008 R2, is very responsive and easily handles the workload assigned to it. It might be worth mentioning that it is whisper quiet, really doesn't make any noise to speak of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat High-End Workstation Starter

Pros: Haswell support, plenty of room for uber video cards, can add extra front fan for excellent air flow, tool-less optical and hard drive install, many IO ports (including 4 - USB 3 ports)...I use these at work to build workstations for digital surveillance systems, it's a great starter kit.

Cons: Currently doesn't come with motherboard drivers disk (drivers easy to find on website though). Also I wish it came with optional front fan, I currently buy it separate and install it.

2 out of 5 eggsProblems

Pros: -Good warranty experience
-Featureset
-Perceived Price
-Reliability

Cons: -Plagued with PCI-E Bios Issues

Other Thoughts: Same supermicro issue in the bios seems to be going around. Lack of proper bios autodetection of PCI-E Video.

Received the nefarious 5 beeps (no video console detected) and had to put a PCI-E V1 card in then set the bios to PCI-E V2 or V3 to get a current gen card to detect.

This is an annoyance for me, but would be significant to someone lacking a lot of spare video cards.
