Pros: Great board build carefully.
I have 3 of these boards, one older rev board running (2) 6200 16 cores each with 64Gb ECC - running at 1333
All (3) systems I build are in Antec Titan server case, not the best case, but the board fits nicely and have room for 8 internal drives.
The newer KGPE-D16's (all have 3201 bios) are running:
(2) Opteron 6386SE @ 2.8Ghz - Best G34 chip.
Running with 128Gb Ram - runs at 1600 - Kingston 16Gb Chips - fills all orange slots. (looked up on Kingston.com)
Using the good - Noctua G34 Cpu Coolers
Power supply: Don't cheap out on this! many that did reviews got low-end junk ones and modified them. Get a Seaonic 850 Platinum which has the (3) total DC connectors for Mainboard.
Raid: wow - someone here was using the garbage promise software raid. lol - don't do this. I got an LSI 92XX series HARDARE RAID cards - one is an 4i/4e - and have it hooked up to a external drive cage - SAS2 drives, BBU, Cachcade option - SSD infront of RAID (yes hot spares) This is better than the Pike offerings - spend another $500+ for good RAID.
Runs tons of stuff easily.
Cons: No drivers for Vmware - just what it can detect.
No temps or Fan sensors! Please post here if you have this board running ESXi 5.5 u2 and can see them.
I have 158 sensors - plus I can see raid health in VMware, so that is ok - but not perfect.
Other Thoughts: Got a virtual render box that I gave 20 cores to run Autocad renders. Crushes everything...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 350 Bookshelf/Stand Mount Speaker (Black) Pair
Pros: Clean sound, they do drink power. I'm feeding them with a newer sony a/v reciever 100 watts per channel. (770 total) and these guys take it. They do sound different than the yahama monitors they replaced, more accurate. Got a 12" powered klipsch woofer in the room. Textbook Dolby layout. recalibrated with my recievers microphone sitting in middle etc. In short they do have great clean accurate sound. Sound is full bodied with side vent.
Cons: Not really a con - drink power.
Other Thoughts: Got them at a great price. Box survived UPS lady kicking it!
Glad I got them.
This review is from: LifeProof fre Black Case For iPhone 5 1301-01
Pros: Package it comes in looks nice, the rest is fail
Cons: Expensive, poorly designed, poorly made, poorly thought out.
Other Thoughts: The screen DOES NOT SIT FLUSH. That's right a huge ugly bubble that makes your iphone 5 look like a joke. What's worse is the sound quality, worse still is attempting to use the touch interface that the iphone5 has. Every time you attempt to touch the screen you have to first push down hard enough so the loose screen cover collapses and you can finally make contact with the iphone5 screen underneath.
I can't believe this design would pass ANY kind of QC or user tests.
I wouldn't use this case if they shipped free with a $5 bill in the package!! Yes, that bad - run away.
