ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs ASUS support is terrible! 11/15/2012

This review is from: ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI EEB Intel Motherboard

Pros: Boards have great specs

Cons: Any failure and you may as well throw the board away

Other Thoughts: I used to buy ASUS motherboards because of the specs. Ran across a board that was supposed to support 16G of RAM but would not post with more than 12G. Did the advanced RMA thing, drove to our colo center and the replacement was DOA. I called and asked if they could overnight me a working board because I was at a colo center 5 hours from my house. I was told by their unhelpful support that I would have to send at least 1 board back and wait a week. These people really don't care about their customers. I guess they figure if you are dumb enough to buy their products, you will put up with anything.

Would never buy an ASUS product again.

NORCO RPC-250 Black 2U Rackmount Server Chassis

5 out of 5 eggs Very good case 03/23/2012

This review is from: NORCO RPC-250 Black 2U Rackmount Server Chassis

Pros: Well-thought out

Cons: Nothing

Other Thoughts: I've built many machines with 2U cases, this is the best. The fan power connectors have been daisy-chained so they work, the PSU/Drive backets screw in from the TOP, rather than having to try to thread a screw to the bottom of the case to mount. Yes, the case is tight, and yes, you'll cut your fingers on it. That goes with this class of case. But frankly, after putting together 2U servers in no less than a dozen different brands of cases, I think is the best.

With respect to the chassis width, I've have many cases with this problem. As a work-around mount the rails INSIDE the cabinet posts, ie, instead of screwing the L-brackets into the front of the cab post, put them behind the post and screw them into the post that way (from behind). Then you can push them to the sidesa bit and as long as the case fits between the posts, you are golden.
