This review is from: Intel C55824-604 ATX Server Motherboard Dual 604
Pros: Shipping was fast. The motherboard is actually the Intel C55824-603 (label literally shows "C55824-604/603" in print), which is the SE7525GP2. It's unclear why the C55824-60x code is being used, versus the nominal Intel SE7xxxx-XXX model number?
Cons: Insufficient packing allowed the motherboard to shift and move around freely inside the shipping container. Motherboard had multiple bent pins and warpage. The CD-ROM included in the package was a blank, unformatted disk. It contained no software, drivers, or documentation. On power-up, the motherboard diagnostic LEDs switch to red color, indicating a major BIOS boot failure. The product was received non-functional / dead-on-arrival.
Other Thoughts: The motherboard is sold as a "refurbished" unit, but the product shipped to me was unsuitable for sale. Warpage appears to be the result of abuse - such as, improper installation in previous equipment. Damaged product, like this one, should be screened and rejected before shipping to customer. Will use RMA process to replace motherboard, and update review.READ FULL REVIEW
