3 out of 5 eggsJury still out....but here's a few notes

Pros: Lots of memory, lots of cores, lots of speed, what we need for simulation work.

This thing has a ton of cooling and isn't too loud. Fan controls are quite accessible (but feel a little too cheap for this price).

Lots of extra connectors on the PS, and it appears beefy enough for this system.

The hard drives are mounted sideways inside-the best access for adding and changing I've seen

Cons: On both machines, the back plate didn't line up with the ports. I can only get to two usb's, which is fortunately all I need for mouse and keyboard at the moment. I'm not sure how I'm gonna fix them...taller standoffs maybe.

No hdmi-this became a problem for us immediately because we had to find some converters for the presentation.

Case is flimsy (for the price). No where near as solid as my Antec 902. Bends and flexes in your hands and we had the red paint chip off on one corner already (in 2 days).

Other Thoughts: We bought a couple of these in a hurry at work because we needed them for a presentation, and then would use them as modeling machines afterward (power system modeling, Matlab type stuff, computationally intensive).

I've only done the barest tests with them so far getting them ready for the presentation. Hopefully I'll update when I can run an intensive simulation on them.

On a personal note I found the red kind of obnoxious in an office environment. It would have been nice if we could have got yellow and blue too. That way we could have at least named them after the transformers.
