2 out of 5 eggsIt's almost a bait and switch ...

Pros: Overall impression…. not good. It is a well built server rack mount chassis. This server and the other server lines from Intel have good potential if it were not for the VERY SERIOUS issues listed below.

Cons: Over the years Intel Server Group has been slowly removing the parts needed to actually get a server up a going. I’m not talking about CPUs, memory, and hard drives. I’m talking about REQUIRED COMPONENTS that Intel has been slowly removing from their servers in order to FORCE you to spend more money with them. Years ago, once you added your CPUS, memory, hard drives, and PCI cards, you could get the Intel server up and running. NOT ANY MORE. This server for example, has 12 hot-pluggable drive bays. But, only 4 of the drive bays actually work. That’s right … it has 12 drive bays, but only 4 work. In order to get another 4 drive bays to work, you have to purchase a tiny little plug called a “RAID KEY”. What does this little plug do? NOTHING. It simply proves that you have spent more money with Intel. It’s another $120 and is REQUIRED in order to get another 4 drive bays to function. This little “KEY” used to be pre-installed on the motherboard when you bought one of their servers. So … you must go back and buy another $120 gizmo to get up to 8 drive bays working. But, 4 of the 12 hot-pluggable drive bays STILL do not function. You have to buy two more Intel proprietary expansion cards to get them up and running too. Another $650. These parts also used to be included and pre-installed when you bought the server. SHAME ON YOU INTEL !!!
Oh, but it doesn’t stop there. In the latest servers from Intel, they now no longer include the PCI risers. So on the latest servers from Intel, the PCI risers don’t work either. Not without buying MORE proprietary parts in addition to the server from Intel. And, the newer Intel Servers also only include one power supply instead of two. And no mounting rails either. In previous years, Intel servers included both power supplies and rack mounting rails. This is Intel’s attempt to remain VISUALLY price competitive with other manufacturer’s servers on the market, but still gouge more money from us. The price has stayed roughly the same for the base chassis, but they have been slowly removing many of the required parts over the years.

Motherboard:
Seems to work ok. But definitely not up the performance it should be. The motherboard specs at Intel state this board supports 6Gb/s. Not true. All of the external drive bays actually only support up to 3Gb/s. Only 2 internal SATA ports actually support 6Gb/s.

Driver Support:
Absolutely terrible !!! The CD shipped with this server chassis is complete trash. Not even ONE of the drivers would install. The Intel Ethernet drivers on the CD errored out stating the no Intel Ethernet Drivers are installed on the system. The Chipset driver didn’t work at all. We used the chipset drivers from a previous Intel Server (R2312IP4LHPC) purchased a couple years ago to get this server functioning. Download those from Intel’s support site to get this server running. The RAID driver setup program errors out with a blank error dialog. We did get this server up and running by downloading drivers from Intel’s support web site. Not by downloading the drivers for THIS server chassis, but by downloading drivers for a previous Intel server chassis.

Removable drive bays:
They seem to work well. It's a good design that Intel has been using for many years. But … the screws that are used to hold the drives are cheap. So cheap that it is impossible to remove the screws without little bits of the metal flaking off the screws. I suggest you be careful with the screws and be sure to vacuum or clean the drive bays and screws off before reinserting the drive carriers back in the chassis. You don’t want the little bits of screw metal to be sucked in by the fans to your land on your motherboard, do you?


Other Thoughts: Intel servers may be ok for very large enterprise or data centers (who can negotiate better combined deals), but definitely not for medium or small businesses.

This will definitely be the VERY LAST Intel server we ever buy.
