ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 08/02/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works well. Used for a FreeNAS system and worked out of box with the following parts...
Intel Core i3-3240
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB)
LSI SAS 9211-8i
LSI SAS 9207-8e

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: This is the first non-intel MB I have purchased in years. I missed the single fold out "map" that Intel provides for step by step setup and board layout. Short of that, board is is doing what is asked of it.

4 out of 5 eggs SeaSonic SS-400L2U 08/02/2014

This review is from: SeaSonic SS-400L2U 400W Single 2U Server Power Supply - 80PLUS Gold

Pros: Allows electrons to flow.

Cons: See "Other thoughts".

Other Thoughts: *The cooling fan is not the best by any means... I'd removed the bearing sticker and gave it a dusting of dry graphite... Things are much nicer now. If you can, replace the stock 60mm fan with a high end fan and you'll be happier.
*Cable harness to PSU connections are VERY tight. There were times I thought there was going to be damage plugging and unplugging connectors.
*Modular cable harness is nice and allowed for easier customization to suit my needs.

NORCO RPC-2212 Black 2U Rackmount Server Case with 12 Hot-Swappable SATA/SAS Drive Bays
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do. For the price and reviews read I didn't really expect much.

Cons: Spend the money and buy yourself some GOOD replacement fans. After 3 reboots for OS and system setup and a week of service... I could hear the blasted fans through out the everywhere. Sounded like a failed bearing.

Other Thoughts: I had previously purchased NOCTUA NF-R8 fans to have on hand and replaced the 4 chassis fans. Box runs almost silent now other than wind rush/chassis echo. There is ALMOST an issue, depending on the cabling you have, going from HBA to disk backplane. I had to form the cables to fit around the fans so they would seat properly but short of that and the above mentioned fan issue I'd recommend this chassis.
