This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR3 1600/1333
Pros: 8 cores, vt-x support, passively cooled.
Cons: wish vt-d was supported on atom
Other Thoughts: built 4 of these for little virtualization cluster - zero problems. Read the instructions : you shouldn't plug in the 4 pin next to the 24 pin ATX. I did by mistake but nothing bad happened (I hope). I since unplugged 4 pin and all is fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: IN WIN H-Frame Mini Red Aluminum Mini-ITX Computer Case 180W Power Supply
Pros: Very solid, heavy guage aluminum. cables for 2 ssd's already pre-routed. With my 20w cpu the power supply is absolutely silent as the fan doesn't engage. Nothing chintzy about this case. nice nylon bag for packing without scratches, also zippered clear bag to keep tools / screws, manual. Includes 2 cable routing gizmos you can put wherever.
Cons: Wish 24 pin atx cable was about half an inch longer. Works, but on my mb cable reaches over cpu, wanted to route cable along edges. For my MB the ssd cables are a little longer than needed.
Other Thoughts: Ordered 4 of these to make a little virtualization cluster. The glass top is really tempered glass, not plexiglass like I thought. Surprised by the heavy guage of the aluminum, zero flex in the case. Classy, my favorite m-itx case, I've built 4 m-itx systems before with other cases. I think the black / red looks better than silver / blue but I got 2 of each for yin/yang effect.
Can't drink coffee near this cause it's open air!
Pros: Works with supermicro 8core atom m-atx mb
Cons: none noted
Other Thoughts: plugged 2 of these in the supermicro 8 core rangely atom m-atx motherboard and booted up no problem. Been running for a week with no issuesREAD FULL REVIEW
