SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-O LGA 1155 Intel C204 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good entry level server board 02/28/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-O LGA 1155 Intel C204 Micro ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Pros: Cheap.
Can use regular desktop CPUs.
Seems pretty fast and stable.
Minimal driver requirements.

Cons: Has SERIOUS issues with add-on RAID controllers. Reading online this is an ongoing problem. However, my HP P400 controllers aren't the most compatible cards by any means, but we shall see how my new Areca card goes once it comes in.

Other Thoughts: If you install the Intel NIC drivers you can team the two onboard NICs and run a single 2Gb connection if your switch supports it.

There are known compatibility issues with the second NIC model and VMWare ESX installs. Community drivers are available to make it work, but it is a bit of a hack. I am using mine with Windows 2008 R2 though and have no issues with NICs.

IOGEAR GCS24U 4-Port USB Cable KVM Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works well 02/28/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS24U 4-Port USB Cable KVM Switch

Pros: Allows me to switch between 4 computers.
Can toss behind table after connected and use remote button for switching.

Cons: Lots of wires to get tangled (to be expected though)

The strange little switch button has no lights to show what PC you are on, lights are on top of the box. This kind of defeats the point of the remote switch, but I have 4 different types of things connected so I can just guess based on what is displayed.

Other Thoughts: They should put some micro LEDs in the switch to show what PC you are on. Also, might make the switch cable a little thicker, as it seems like it would be easy to damage.
