MOTOROLA SB6120 Cable Modem SURFboard eXtreme 160Mbps in DOCSIS mode and 195Mbps in EuroDOCSIS mode Ethernet Port DOCSIS 3.0

Pros: DOA. Comcast was able to register the new modem but the device was never able to connect properly. It continues to cycle through trying to connect, as others have experienced.

Cons: I've seen mention of MAC ID problems, firmware problems, etc, from those who've had a malfunctioning unit. It's impossible to independently verify from Comcast or Motorola what the true problem is, so it's pretty much hit or miss.

Other Thoughts: Reconnected old modem after Comcast support tried fixing the problem, it works fine. I hate Comcast, horrible service at horrible prices, but due to their lobbying (otherwise known as bribery) and anti-competitive efforts in the US they're the fastest consumer ISP in town. A lack of competition is killing innovation. Demand an end to congressional bribery and corporate personhood.

SUPERMICRO  MBD-X8SIA-F-O  LGA 1156  Intel 3420  ATX  Intel Xeon X3400/L3400 series Server Motherboard

Pros: IPMI is AMAZING, how did I ever live without it? Lots of expansion flexibility, plenty of onboard SATA, plenty of DIMM slots, dual GB LAN.

Cons: Does NOT support Core i5 Dual-Core CPU's as Newegg states. Causes error message to post interrupting boot, disabling error messages will allow boot to proceed uninterrupted however VT-d will not work properly. No SATA 6.0, no USB 3.0, but this being a server-board I wasn't looking for bleeding edge consumer-board tech.

Other Thoughts: Great MB, good value for the money, rock solid Supermicro quality, IPMI!!, plenty of flexibility with CPU support and expansion slots. Great ESXi MB. Very happy with this mb.
