This review is from: ASRock E3C204-4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: Cheap for 4 NIC's. Good overall layout.
Cons: Requires UDIMM's (not mentioned on newegg page).
Would not work with using two PCIE x8 raid cards. Tech-support was responsive, and we had several email back-and-forths and tried an experimental bios from the mfg, but ultimately we were unable to get it working in the configuration we needed.
We were additionally unable to return it, as the cleaning service for our lab discarded the boxes. *sigh*
Other Thoughts: This probably works well for many applications, just not ours.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case is hella cheap. I mean there is not one extra ounce of metal to spare in this thing. With additional rebate, these were ~ $30. Wow. Totally worth it at this price.
Cons: I bought three of these, one red, one blue, and one green. Needs love.
Easy cons: 4Pin cpu power is dated at best. There are adapters available in Newegg. There are missing holes necessary to support the full ATX MB standard.
They all needed some love. 1/3 booted on first try.
There is a secret power switch that is internal to the case (pull off front panel to find) that I would have never knew of if they shipped in the "on" position. Fixed this on two which brought me to 2/3 working.
The last one had a defective power extension cable which brings the power from the back of the case to the "front" hidden panel where it connects to the PSU. I replaced this with a longerish cable that hang jankily out of the back of the case. I would be satisfied if the manufacturer replaced this cable for me.
Other Thoughts: I learned how to test a power supply using a multimeter. I guess that is a skill I never knew I wanted.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked great when I got it.
Cons: I had some BSOD's I assumed to be unrelated, then I entered the matrix. Artifacts everywhere, and the device would stop working all the time, windows would report that it got restarted after a 2 minute hang. Now happens ever 20 minutes or so. Check the NVIDIA forums before buying, everyone is having this problem :(
Other Thoughts: Makes a nice coffee warmer if given the right voltages.READ FULL REVIEW
