Cons: Purchased first one a few weeks ago. After installing Windows, drivers, and software it ran for about 24 hours then died. RMA'd that drive and received the replacement a week later. The replacement drive just died this morning after running for about 5 days. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE. .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was inexpensive for Enterprise hardware. (Go figure)
Cons: Original drive shipped DOA. RMA'd directly to Western Digital. Replacement arrived in a timely fashion, then the nightmare began. Installed it to our server for an internal backup drive. After powering back up, immediate sizzle and smoke. There was a dead short on the 5 volt rail. When the drive was removed, we realized it not only killed itself, but it destroyed our primary data drive and half of our raid stripe. Only 1 drive in the server survived. I spent dozens of hours and several hundred dollars on data recovery. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Supports both i7 and E3-12XX ivy bridge processors. Supports both EEC and Non RAM. PCI Ex 3.0 x16 and X8 crossfire. Supports Win 7, 8, Server 2K8 and Server 2K10.
Do yourself a favor and take the time to lookup the supported memory models. I used 32GB Kingston KVR16E11K4/32 in a matched set. This will solve most of the problems I have noted from other reviews about this board. Also be certain you are intending to use integrated graphics or not. If so, do your homework and get a processor that supports it. If you are intending to use Server 2K12, get an LGA 2011 board.
Cons: I had to give it four eggs for one single reason. There is only one USB 2.0 header on the board. If you have front panel USB ports, or a card reader like I did, you won't be able to use the D-bracket that comes with the board, and will have to choose between FP and card reader. It really should have had two or more sets.
Other Thoughts: I am the IT admin for a mid sized manufacturer. We purchased two of these and both run flawlessly when paired with supported hardware and OS. This board was purchased with an E3-1245 V2 processor, AMD FirePro W7000, and Kingston Hyper X SSD. This machine rocks SolidWorks 2013, AutoCad, and Adobe Illustrator. It is quite possibly the fastest 3D drafting machine I have ever built with our modest engineering budget.READ FULL REVIEW
