5 out of 5 eggsFantastic bare bones server!

Pros: I bought this for a small office VMware ESXi 5 deployment. Add a CPU and RAM and this thing ROCKS! Stable from day 1.

Has a USB port on the motherboard, this works great to plug a USB stick into and boot directly into ESXi 5 without any disks.

Cons: Marvel NICs are not compatible with VMware ESXi 5, so if that's your plan, you'll need to get compatible NICs. You can configure the onboard NICs for pass-through/direct connect to a VM after the fact, but I could not get ESXi 5 to install without a compatible NIC

Other Thoughts: I plan to purchase another of these for the same shop for a hot spare and to be able to set up HA and DRS in the environment.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, Cool

Pros: Case is well designed for an inexpensive case. Hard drive rails have rubber fittings on the screws which really reduce the noise level. Definately use the cooler that comes with case. Cooler is quieter and easier to clean dust from. Great for entry level server. Rock solid build. Also this case is quieter than some of the expensive workstation cases. Excellent all around.

Cons: Use a Xeon CPU and be sure to read exactly the type of socket to use. Some users will be confused and might purchase the incorrect cpu for this case. i7 processor is not bad either, but it's NOT a server processor.

5 out of 5 eggsNice SMB Workstation or Server

Pros: This is a great choice as an SMB Server. We have one running at a client for almost a year with no failures.

Stable and very quiet.

We have also started selling these as a high end SBM workstations with ATI openGL graphics cards.

For a processor try the Xeon 3440 as it supports HT and you get 8 threads.

Western digital RE3 or RE4 drives work great in raid 1 or stand alone for a high end workstation.

Some users apparently have memory issues.

We have used N82E16820139262 which is Kingston KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G with no issues. It lets you start with 8GB and simply add a second kit to max out at 16GB.

Cons: No hot plug drives for use as SMB server.

IPKVM support would be nice.

No filter for the case. It does collect dust over time.

Not enough USB ports for workstation use. We just plugged in a PCI-x USB expansion card with 4 ports and that problem is solved.

No onboard sound and the MIO audio card is difficult to obtain.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the Intel cooler that comes with your CPU. It will make the system noisy. The included cooler makes the system virtually silent under light load.

4 out of 5 eggsGood price, Decent perfomer

Pros: ASUS cable monkeys did a great job with wire management inside this case. makes it very easy for fast deployment.

LSI RAID is a plus or you can move a jumper and use the INTEL RAID.

Very QUIET -- Never know its turned on. Fan only ramps up when needed. "You can adjust fan speeds in BIOS"

With X3430 and 2GB DDR3 memory - Server is rather quick for what it is.

Cons: CHECK MEMORY COMPATIBILITY LIST!! The Intel 3400 chipset is very picky.

This is probably why the other guy had "DOA's"

Other Thoughts: have purchased 6 of these units so far. two(2) from newegg and rest from our distributor. Knock on wood these stay solid....

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for reviewing this product. We're glad that it is working well for you. The suggestion for others to check memory compatibility list prior to purchasing memory for the system is a very good one, especially anytime you're dealing with servers.

I've attached a chart showing the supported memory types for this barebones server. Please reference this chart before purchasing memory for these barebones servers.

Best Regards,

ASUS Support Team
