Shuttle SA76G2 AMD Phenom II / Phenom / Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 AMD Socket AM2+ / AM3 AMD 760G ATI Radeon 3000 Barebone
  • AMD Phenom II / Phenom / Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon 64 AMD Socket AM2+ / AM3
  • AMD 760G AMD SB710
  • 2 x 240Pin DIMM DDR2 533/667/800
  • ATI Radeon 3000

Pros:

Nice little box, uses AMD processors, so total system cost of even fairly powerful machines is low. I use these for security webcam servers, with 2TB RAID arrays and all sorta of features.

Nice cooling, as much horsepower as you want, 4G of memory, Centos 5.5 knows about all the devices, can't lose, right?

Cons:

1) OK, minor quibble, max 105W TDP for the CPU, but there are lots of quad-core AMD CPUs within that restriction.

2) Shuttle is pretty unresponsive, opened a ticket a week ago and haven't even gotten an acknowledgment back yet.

3) YEAH, I'M SHOUTING!!!! CERTAIN BIOS SETTINGS CAN CAUSE THE MACHINE TO GET NETWORK ERRORS, PERL CODE ERRORS, AND OTHER BIZARRE OPERATIONS. I have another {identical} box here, so I was able to determine that it wasn't CPU, memory, OS, and was in fact the chassis. Bought another new chassis (yes, thanks, Shuttle, I am made of money, and don't mind at all having to buy another chassis because you don't respond to tickets.), and it has the same problem. Tearing of hair, gnashing of teeth, rending of clothing, finally discovered the problem, and now I'm kinda back on track for my customer deployment in a couple of days. But it's win-win, because my time is worth nothing.

Other Thoughts:

If you disable audio in the BIOS (because it's a headless file/compute server and has no use for audio), you get the above network and compute errors. Perl Magick forgets to annotate images. network file copies break after a while with "Corrupted MAC on input" errors, both on the builtin ethernet and two separate (different mfr, different chipset) PCI network cards. Just really weird and intermittent hardware failures.

Not bitter at all!
