Other Thoughts: I had another atom server X7SPA-H in a CSE-512 Chassis running Windows Server 2K8. Exchange was eating up resources and I needed to upgrade RAM, but couldn't with that board. I had bought a 5018A-MLTN4 for a client and liked the power. I was able to use this board to replace my old board and keep my same CSE-512 Chassis. Migrated to Windows Server 2K12 and its running like a champ! Installed 32GB of ECC RAM and never looked back.
Used 4x Crucial 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 ECC CT102472BD160B-18FED
Pros: Small, Quiet, Powerful, Normal DIMM Expandable RAM
Cons: None so far...
Other Thoughts: Bought this opened box. Purchased for a client who was using a desktop PC as their server that was about to fail. Installed Windows Server 2012 and setup a real domain. Used as Domain Controller and File Server. Was able to transfer all data very quickly. Very responsive little server. Used 2x Kingston RAM 4GB 1600MHz ECC DDR3 KTL-TS316ELV/4GREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Purchased this card to install on my older Mac Pro 1,1 A1186 that is running mavericks 10.9.5. Wanted to add more speed with this USB 3.0 card for cloning hard drives and transferring large media files. Comes with the FRESCO 1100 Chipset so it was recognized right out of the box, no drivers needed. I installed it on a PCIe 16x Port. Works like a charm with great speeds. its black... has 4 ports
Cons: None Yet
Other Thoughts: Mac Pro 1,1
