Pros: Bought this as a storage server for my XenServer - apache cloudstack environment at home. Initially hosting a private cloud - Citrix environment, IAAS. Installing W2K8 R2 with Starwind iscsi target software with RAID 10. With the drive cache feature through ram (Server holds up to 128GB of unbuffered RAM, 512GB registered) in the startwind software, my WD Red 1TB 5400rpm drives should have a substantial performance increase without the cost of SSD (relative to capacity) at this time. Switching the 16GB that came with it for 64GB.

Cons: N/A at this time - only cost of 2.5" HDD - per capacity of the drives, in this form factor.

Other Thoughts: Server is clean as a refurbished item, few spots of double sided tape on the chassis, nothing isotone cant remove. Inside the server is CLEAN. Kit includes rack mount rails, no power cords. Don't really need 24 Hot Swap bays at the moment, but for future, its there.

SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100362-2SR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: WOW.... This card is AMAZING temperature wise. I went from the original stock reference R9 290 Sapphire BF4 edition. Will admit, dogecoin mining.. Reference cooler card - 1000 / 1500 - got 875 k/h. Fan ran at 65%, temperature was 79 degrees. With the Tri-X, no tweaking to my config file for cgminer 1000 / 1500 (stock for the card is 1000 / 1300) I registered 68 degrees at only 40% fan and 900 k/h. Beautiful, now to tweak the config file for cgminer. Expecting over 900 k/h.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Reference R9 290 cooler is loud at 65% fan, Tri-X at 40% fan, I have no idea I am evening mining, AMAZING. Purrs like a kitten. Purchase this card for mining or gaming you will not be disappointed. NEVER been so happy with a GPU purchase. Tri-X came with Hynix memory, far superior to the Elpida memory on my reference R9 290 from Sapphire.
