Great Expandability in UP 1U
The RS300-E7/RS4 provides 2+1 expansion slots in a 1U chassis for higher expandability. Two PCI Express slots support full-height / half-length cards, with a dedicated slot designed for optional ASUS PIKE RAID cards with no additional verification needed.
Quad LAN for Extra Reliable Networking

Quad LAN also improves load balance for far more reliable connections, offering the ultimate in network security and virtualization.
Up to 92% Power Efficiency
Maintaining the ASUS commitment to environmental protection, the RS300-E7/RS4 utilizes 1+1 redundant 450W 80 PLUS Gold power supplies to reduce power loss and consumption. As such, it lowers power bills with up to 92% power efficiency.
The optional web-based, GUI-driven ASMB5-iKVM upgrade kit provides integrated control of server functions with dedicated hotkeys and remote on-screen server management. Virtual media-over-LAN helps share local devices with target servers, enabling fast troubleshooting and operating system installation. Furthermore, ASUS ASWM Enterprise provides easy deployment and management with a friendly interface while delivering centralized management, asset supervision, notification mechanisms, and integrated BMC BIOS updates.
This review is from: ASUS RS300-E7/RS4 1U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: -Works with Windows Server 2012 (after bios update) -Redundant PSU -4 hotswap bays are more than enough for what we needed
Cons: -Bios update was a minor hassle, wasn't clear that it was the issue -cpu heatsink was a little tight to install with the PSU cables running against it
Other Thoughts: -update bios out of the box -if using SSDs, 2.5 to 3.5 mounting brackets will make it easier but aren't completely necessary -Do not use ram of normal or higher height, it will be against the chassis -Unbuffered ECC memory is a MUST. This system will not work with regular desktop memory (hoped I could get away with a spare chip for setup since the memory was the only thing that arrived late)
