Pros: It would be great in a small workgroup, works fast using local accounts.
Cons: Chokes on a large domain (500,000+ AD users, 300,000 AD groups).
Other Thoughts: When using local accounts, this thing flies, tied into a large AD, it has huge lag time. The WebDav login takes over 3 minutes to authenticate. It takes several minutes just display the AD groups when setting permissions on shares. File browser take up to 4 minutes to display all the shared folders as it pulls up permissions from the AD. Basically everything you do on this machine has a 2-4 minute lag time when connected to Active Directory.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X8STE-O LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Xeon Server Motherboard
Pros: Nothing over the top for a motherboard
Cons: Very specific RAM requirements. Missing critical parts! I have never heard of a motherboard that requires you to BUY the heatsink clip separately!! Granted its only a $3 part (part# BKT-0023L), but come on, they can't include that?
Other Thoughts: Just know that if you buy a retail Intel CPU (for me a Xeon E5505) with a genuine Intel heatsink (for me a BXSTS100A), it won't mount to your board unless you buy the heatsink clip separately!! How cheap is that??READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works
Cons: No heatsink included. I've bough lots of retail CPU's before, they all came with heatsinks until this one.
Other Thoughts: It would be nice if Newegg made a little more effort to let customers know that no heatsink is included with this retail CPU. Instead its at the very bottom of the Specs page. A little note in the description would have been nice.READ FULL REVIEW
