TROND AC2 Aluminum External USB Audio Adapter Sound Card with 3.5mm Stereo Headphone/Speaker and Mono Microphone Jacks (Silver, C-Media CM108 Chip, Plug-N-Play, Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux)

Pros: I purchased this device to add sound to a server motherboard that was re-purposed to run windows 10 as a workstation. Plugged it in and it worked, what else could you want. I wasn't looking for any kind of high fidelity or surround sound. Just your typical basic sound and for the price it delivers just that.

Cons: None

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-F-O LGA 1155 Intel C204 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is the third server build with this board. So far the two I built in May of 2013 have not skipped a beat. Glad I posted how to boot from DVD on my previous go round as I needed that information again.

Cons: All documentation and drivers are on the website not in the box.

If you have trouble booting from DVD after setting up raid or finding Raid drivers see my previous post from May 2013.

Other Thoughts: The layout of this board is odd (to me) the power connections are on top and in the cases I buy that ends up right under the power supply, also the power switches and HDD LEDs also on the top edge. Not a big deal just a little inconvenient.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-F-O LGA 1155 Intel C204 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Pros: Newegg isn't out of stock

Cons: In my last review I explained how to get this Mboard to boot from DVD after setting up Raid. This time I was installing server 2012 not 2008 and the drives didn't show up. I knew that I needed the raid driver but the website of the Manufacturer has a mind boggling number of downloads and no way to find the one you are looking for. Fortunately in one post for someone looking for something similar I found the driver for this Mboard:
ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/driver/SATA/Intel_PCH_RAID_RST/Windows/11.2.0.1006/
The forum poster was actually looking for 2003 32 bit but I saw the 11.2.0.1006 and knew from all the others I tried that it would have the 64 bit also - good luck !

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if they included a CD with the Mboard like ASUS and others do but they direct you to their website where they have every download they've ever provided all mixed together. Good luck figuring it out!
