SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRI-F-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: powerful gen-3 system. IPMI is excellent. Plenty of gen-3 slots.

Cons: wimpy VGA connector - breaks easily
cannot get bifurcation to work on any slot

Other Thoughts: I use this on a test bench. Unless you have the built-in vga connector solidly attached to a chassis or something, you are going to break it easily. Needs a more solid connector like previous Supermicro boards.

I have a board with 4x4 bifurcation that works in a competitors MB, but not in this one. A newer version of the bios made very significant changes to the bifurcation options, but it still doesn't work.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard– Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00381900-R3U1)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Heavy - won't skooch around when you bang on it
bright lights
programmable keys
macro recording options are cool
very tactile

Cons: I can't touch type, so I buy illuminated keyboards. On this one, the symbols "!@#$%^&*()_+|}{:"<>?" and "FN" are NOT illuminated - what's the point of illumination???

bad font on the keys

The vertical orientation of keys with 2 symbols ( e.g. : and ; ) is BACKWARDS - the shifted symbol is on the bottom and the unshifted symbol is on top.

The SW has to be downloaded - you have to create an account and then hunt for it on the web site.

SW won't intall on WIN2K8R2-x64 - (it says my OS is "insufficient") unless you dumb it down with "Tropubleshoot Compatibility" to look like WinXP-32-bit.

On Win7 Ult. the installer crashed a couple of times before flying right.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't have given it more than 3 eggs if I hadn't had an equal amount of disappointment with other keyboards. I think I'll keep it anyhow, for the pros.

Why does everyone who sells expensive keyboards think they have to re-invent the layout???

KINGWIN LZP-850 850W ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: ATX 12V v2.2 / EPS 12V v2.91, modular, Platinum

Cons: It says :Connectors... "2 x 8 pin +12V Power Connector".
Not true.
It has only 1 "4+4" 12 V Connector. I had to take a 6-pin PCI-E connector, turn it around backwards and jam it in to the 2nd 8-pin 12 V connector on my server motherboard.
The modular cable wires are all black - not color coded.

Other Thoughts: I'll buy a different power supply next time.
