iStarUSA D-200L-2U46PD8-RC Black Aluminum / Steel 2U Rackmount 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great build quality. Very solid. Has everything you need for a basic rackmount server. Top slides off very smooth. Good stable PSU built-in. Reasonably good airflow. Looks nice - quality paint, cool curved doors.

Runs a 24 core AMD server with no problems.

Cons: Nitpicking but:

PSU is 24+8+4 not 24+8+8, so you will need an adapter to get enough power to the second CPU.

380 Watt PSU may not be enough if you are running a lot of devices - so keep that in mind.

The built-in mounting holes did not match 2 of the holes on my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another if I needed it.

ASUS KGPE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual Socket G34 AMD SR5690 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

1 out of 5 eggs Unstable Board - Very Poor Support 03/10/2014

This review is from: ASUS KGPE-D16 SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual Socket G34 AMD SR5690 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800

Pros: Holds a ton of memory
Very fast
Lots of features

Cons: Very unstable - reboots frequently
Asus support - complete waste of time

Other Thoughts: First board:

Powered it up - burning electronics smell - no POST. Tried to RMA it back to Asus.

They wasted my time for over two weeks. You have to fax them a *paper* form for RMA. They sent the different wrong RMA forms. They cannot confirm if they received your fax - they just tell you to wait 3 days for "approval" - that never comes. Cannot tell when RMA will be processed. #1 thing Asus support could have done to save me time and aggravation: refuse my RMA. If your RMA process is broken - just don't waste my time. Just tell me "Sorry our RMA process doesn't work."

RMA'd board back to NewEgg - got RMA number same day - with prepaid shipping label! New board in 3 days. Thanks NewEgg!

Second board: Have the second board for a week now. It reboots all the time.

My setup:

2x Opteron 6344's
4x Wintec 16GB DDR3 1600 ECC Registered 1.35v

1 SSD disk, server PSU and case, big chip coolers.

A great server when its running. Compiles GCC unbelievably fast.

But... it won't stay up more than 5 minutes without reboot. If I run just a memory test - it runs like a champ for hours - at 100% cpu - CPU's get hot - but it runs fine for hours.

If I try to run any linux ( tried Ubuntu, Redhat etc. ) crashes every few minutes. If I turn off CPU #2 - it runs great. If I remove 2 sticks of memor, and run 2 cpus - it will run maybe 12 hours.

Tried a million bios settings - different ECC settings, different ACPI etc. Some settings are more stable than others.

From reviews I suspect that this board works if you have 1333 memory and 6200 level cpus. And that it will run a single 6300 cpu. But it won't run dual 6300's and 1600 DDR3 memory. I'll update this if I get it to work - but so far no luck.

And yes - it has 3001 bios, I jumpered the ram to 1.35v.

This board was meant to replace an older Asus board that runs great.
