Flagship UP Tower Server with Flexible Expandability

The TS300-E7/PS4 is a single-socket pedestal server system based on quad/dual-Core Intel® E3-1200 / Core™ i3-2100 processors and the Intel® C204PCH chipset with support for up to 32GB DDR3 1333MHz unbuffered ECC memory. This provides immediate performance upscaling and higher processing speeds. With two native SATA 6Gbps ports, four hot-swap hard drive trays, and ASUS PIKE cards, the TS300-E7/PS4 delivers improved data transfer rates, more flexible storage expansion, and complete RAID for SMB users.

Flagship Pedestal Server with High FlexibilIty and Green Design

  • The Latest Intel® CPUs
  • The TS300-E7/PS4 is ready for the latest generation of Intel® Xeon® 32nm quad/dual-core UP processors, which offer a significant performance improvement over previous generation CPUs. Meanwhile, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 provides an efficient, dynamic and intelligent way to enhance performance on demand.
  • Quad Intel® Server-Class Gigabit LAN
  • Quad Intel® Gigabit LAN with teaming doubles bandwidth over standard dual LAN servers and supports better fault tolerance technology. Also, load balancing handles traffic for stronger and faster networking. IPv6 readiness resolves upcoming IPv4 address shortages even before they occur, hassle-free.
  • ASUS PIKE Upgrade Kit for SAS Storage
  • The TS300-E7/PS4 offers optional and exclusive PIKE upgrade kits for users to boost storage from SATA to SAS. Multiple I/O options and the slim, flexible PIKE card let users switch to SAS RAID without sacrificing expansion capabilities.
  • Flex-E Technology for Server/Workstation Dual Use
  • ASUS Flex-E provides flexible PCI-E configurations and auto-switching between a single PCI-E x16 link (graphics card supported) and twin PCI-E x8 link (for I/O expansion), allowing the product to work as a workstation for servers. FCC Class B certification and the optional rack mount kit make the TS300-E7/PS4 perfect as either a pedestal or 5U rack, and suitable for personal use or office applications.
  • Considerate Tool-Less Design
  • To minimize maintenance hassles, the TS300-E7/PS4 uses a tool-less design in several components, including back fan module, optical devices, and PCI-E/hard drive cages. These reduce the time and effort MIS needs to allocate for maintenance.
  • Optional ASMB5-iKVM Upgrade Kit for Easy Management
  • Optional ASMB5-iKVM upgrade kits provide BIOS-level remote real-time control of the system via keyboard, monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer.
  • Optional ASUS TPM Module
  • Supporting TXT technology, the ASUS TPM module helps stop Trojan and malware incursions. With Hypervisor active on start-up, users are protected from software attacks and data stays safe from memory snooping.
  • 80+ Energy Saving Power Supply
  • The TS300-E7/PS4 ships with an 80+ Bronze power supply to reduce power loss and power consumption, saving users money through lower energy bills.
  • RoHS and ENERGY STAR Compliance
  • Both product and packaging meet the strictest environmental standards in line with ASUS's vision of creating environmentally-friendly and recyclable technology to safeguard consumer health while minimizing ecological impact.
  • Designed for Virtualization
  • Virtualization provides central management, reducing power consumption, cooling costs and space requirements. With an onboard vertical USB connector designed for VMWare® ESXi, it's easy to make the most of virtualization.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's this and only this.

Pros: Seems like it's exactly what I ordered and almost exactly what I wanted... and it's an ASUS product so I have faith in it.

Cons: Cannot find the VPSV0000-HS1000 additional HDD Cage anywhere... ASUS doesn't even know where to find it. The Rack Mount Rail Kit ( ) seems to be out of stock after I ordered mine. My guess is they're about to drop this product line because they have nothing for it.

Other Thoughts: I'll update this review down the road but as of now I would say avoid this... Due to client request I'm going forward with using it so I don't delay the build but it's not going to be the setup I wanted.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking very well

Pros: Large fans make it run quietly, works well, never a problem, lots of space. Same motherboard as the rack version but costs less. Running ESXi 5.x flawlessly.

This was my config:
Western Digital WD Black WD1502FAEX 1.5TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
3ware BBU-MODULE-03 Battery Backup Unit for 3ware RAID Controllers
3ware Internal 9750-4i SATA/SAS 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 w/ 512MB onboard memory Controller Card, Single
Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Server Memory Model CT2KIT51272BA1339
Intel Xeon E3-1230 Sandy Bridge 3.2GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 80W Quad-Core Server Processor BX80623E31230

Buy this memory: Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 ECC Unbuffered Server Memory Model KVR1333D3E9S/8G

Cons: 8 Gig memory stick **NOT** available when I bought this, but *is* available now. Just bought 4 sticks to take the machine to 32 gig memory total.

Other Thoughts: The 8Gig version of the DIMMs are now available.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid box with nice hotswap bays

Pros: Very fast with E3-1230 v2
Quite roomy server, space for drives and cards.
Low noise with only 1 main fan and 1 p/s fan.
Works good as server and workstation.
Workstation has now 5 VMs running under VMware W7 host.
Hotswap drives very convenient (ejected like USB drives).
Four 1Gbps NICs.
Front panel indicators including disk drive status and activity.
Works fine with KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G memory.

Cons: Had my initial difficulties to get into the BIOS setup. Intrusion detection was shown, but no selection for BIOS. Had to remove battery and reset BIOS CMOS to reach the BIOS settings.
PCIe and PCI cards hard to install/remove due to the card locking mechanism.
Audio and USB front panel without any cables and no place to buy.
Could not find a source yet where to buy a second 4-HDD bay.
None of the motherboard cables are marked in case the MB has to be removed (for e.g. a Corsair H60 cooler).
CPU heatsink not sufficient for E3-1230 v2 (over 73C with 5min Prime95).
No USB 3.0 ports.
Only 2 SATA 3 and 4 SATA 2 ports (one used by the included DVD RW drive).
Not possible to use onboard LSI disk controller to use RAID array in EFI mode. Intel's RST is doing the job.
Cannot shut front door when audio/usb front panel is in use. ASUS Support lame ... repeating to do the same over and over. Until they said I need to replace motherboard due to LSI problem.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice to know where to buy additional parts like 4-HDD bay, front panel cable etc.
Was initially meant to be a server only, but due to the power of the E3-1230 v2 I decided to use it as my main workstation, server and HTPC and migrate another server (Linux, Windows) into VMware Workstation VMs into this box. Wish I had ordered with 32 GB RAM.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away!

Pros: Solidly built, plenty of room inside and nice hotswap drive bays.

Cons: Does not work! I have tried to get a stable Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 installation multiple times each with multiple different hard drives (e.g., Seagate and OCX Vertex 2). I'm running an E2-1220 3.1 GHz Xenon CPU and 16 GB of Crucial DDR3 ECC UDIMMs. Everything goes fine with each installation and the OS will run for a few hours, but eventually and inevitably, the system locks up (not even a BSD!) after 2 to 4 hours of operation.

Other Thoughts: Like I said, I tried at least 5 different installations and combinations of drives, OSs, flashing of new Bios, etc -- a HUGE waste of time. I've had good luck with ASus MBs in the past, but there is something clearly problematic here and I'm betting it's the ASUS MB.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please check the System Event Log in BIOS and see if any were reported before the system lock up. In Windows or other OS, go to the event viewer and see if there are any hardware driver conflicts.

Also check the Seagate and OCZ SSD have firmware updates that may sometime reduce or eliminate lockups. Please check with drive manufacturers.

The system may lockup/reset if the CPU overheats. Make sure that the heatsink is mounted correctly and the fan is operational. In addition, check in BIOS the CPU temperature periodically.

Please let me know if you still have problems. reference #C1037-920.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Server

Pros: Perfect! This server provides plenty of room for 4 hard disks. Currently has 16GB of ram, i cant find 8GB chips for this motherboard. I run server 2008 r2 with Hyper-V. All of my virtual machines run with out any issues. This server have 4 NIC connections. The front panel has all of the indicator lights you want on a server.

I have no complaints!

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a server to set-up, configure the sit back and have minimal hands on maint. then order this Asus server.

Rock solid.
