5 out of 5 eggs Well Suited For My Project 07/07/2011

This review is from: Foxconn SFF R10-D4 Intel Atom D525 (1.8GHz, Dual-core) Intel NM10 Intel GMA 3150 Barebone

Pros: Very well suited machine for a firewall/gateway or low volume server.

There is a bay for a 3.5" device below the 5.25" ODD bay. I used a 2x2.5" to 3.5" bay converter to seat 2x2.5" HDD's in the internal 3.5" bay.

Atom CPU reports average usage with average loads running a Windows Server 2008 R2 as a domain controller, DNS server, DHCP server, Web server, File server and WMWare worstation running one VM as the firewall & gateway with only 4GB of RAM and supporting about ten workstations.

With the dual core and hyperthreaded CPU, the OS reports four logical cores.

The chassis is near silent. There are three fans one in the PSU, on the CPU and a chassis fan and I hear none of them. Thermals look good, residing in Utah where the temperature is about 95 degrees right now and in a room with no climate conditioning at all.

Cons: Very well suited machine for a firewall/gateway or low volume server.

Atom CPU reports average usage with average loads running a Windows Server 2008 R2 as a domain controller, DNS server, DHCP server, Web server, File server and WMWare workstation running one VM as the firewall & gateway with only 4GB of RAM and supporting about ten workstations. Three NIC’s were required, so a PCI NIC and USB NIC were necessary for my purpose. Otherwise the PCI slot could be used for a discrete video card and this could very well easily be used as an HTPC and DLNA device that would yield above average performance.

Other Thoughts: The chassis dismantles very easily (a screw driver is necessary to remove the upper bay cage to get to the lower) and it quite solid.

I am overall very satisfied and if needed for another project, would purchase again.
