Good Workhorse Server
Pros: Intel branded. Easy to build although HDD mounting is a little different from the larger servers. Runs very well, solid, and air flow is good. Running CentOS for about 6 months. Load it with the maximum amount of high quality server RAM and an Intel Xeon processor and you won't be disappointed.
Cons: The bios was a little difficult to upgrade but it was my first server of this model.
Other Thoughts: This model of Intel barebones server fits a variety of server needs.

Good starting point.
Pros: This is a solid box for a simple server. Rails are universal. HS has thermal compound on it already. It's solid.
Cons: Like most 1U boxes, it's really loud. It doesn't fit 2.5" drives without an adapter and the ones on NE don't match well with the 3.5" drive caddies. You'll have to play with it. Also, Sata cables are about 2" too short.
Other Thoughts: This system should be able to fit 4 2.5" drives in it with adapters but you'll need a custom power adapter as the only power available are sata power, a custom header and a mini cd drive power connector.
