Pros: This is the card you want. Yes, it's expensive. Swallow hard and buy it.
Pleasantly surprised at the speeds I'm getting. 4x Seagate Constellation ES.3 1TB disks in a RAID10 array, and I see 350MB/s (with little bursts up into the 1200MB/s territory) and 500 IOPS.
It's nice that this one has 1GB of RAM for caching, as opposed to the 9260 which only has 512MB.
Other Thoughts: Be prepared to invest in the CacheVault accessory, or to disable the write-caching (and take a not insignificant performance hit). It just doesn't feel safe to run the card without it, even if your server is on a UPS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SUPERMICRO SNK-P0050AP4 Heatsink for Supermicro X9DR3-F Motherboard
Pros: Really nice solid heat sinks. For a server, they aren't that loud. Used them on a SuperMicro X9DR3-F motherboard. Well packaged and very solid. My Xeon E5 4607 CPUs are sitting at about 37 degrees celcius
Cons: At full speed they can be fairly loud. They never seem to get up to that speed though unless I manually set them to maximum.
Other Thoughts: It's a GOOD thing that the fans have the ability to rev up to high speed where they are fast, loud, and move a lot of air. They run as quiet as a desktop most of the time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GSBUSB
Pros: It was really fast when I got it, and worked nicely.
Cons: The cap almost immediately fell off and got lost - it's held on only by the friction of the rubber.
And then a few months later... it died. No response when I plug it into the computer. Too bad.
Other Thoughts: Other people here seem to have good experiences so maybe mine was just a fluke.READ FULL REVIEW
