Pros: it comes with
Cons: * it's loud, use it only if you've a data-center or rack in the basement where no one hangs around.
Other Thoughts: I bought Supermicro last time, I'm still haunted by the pain I had to go through to set that one up. I got two bad pieces in a row and then I had to update BIOS on the third one using DOS! I'm so happy with this ASUS that I'm sticking with it going forward.

Pros: Wasn't sure from NewEgg or the Asus sites but it does come with the optional pike card (which means you can access all 12 drives right out of the box). This isn't the cheapest barebones out there but it's got an amazing amount of expandability, I really like how the ez-flash is built into the bios and even with a single E5-2630 it's amazingly fast.
Cons: Bought this as a test box for Windows Server 8 but even after updating to the 0602 bios it won't load the win8 install (ACPI_BIOS_ERROR). Other OS's seem fine. (Yeah, I know, bleeding edge hardware with a beta OS, what do you expect.)
