Pros: Great bang for your buck.

Pros: Tons of power and lots of ram for a small form factor. 4 hot swap drive bays in a 1u is also cool.
Cons: 1) The machine has 5 or six 1.5 inch fans that will give you a head ache within 30 minutes. They spin up at 14k rpm but settle down to a still very noisy 9k.
2) The intel raid configuration refused to consistently recognize the two farthest left drives, no matter what I tried. Sometimes they would show up, other times they would be gone. The drives always show up under ide/ahci mode however. So I am not sure if it is the backpane or not. I have not tried to contact Tyan yet.
3) The bios is rather poor, very limited configuration compared to Asus and Gigabyte. Bios also has very limited statistics.
Other Thoughts: I like the box, but would love it if it had a better hard disk chipset.READ FULL REVIEW
