Categories > Server Accessories > SuperMicro > SUPERMICRO SNK-P0048P X9 2U Passive CPU Heat Sink

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great Heatsink for Supermicro Server Builds
Pros: Simple heatsink design and well made.
Anchor fasteners are solid and align well with the motherboard.
Height is perfect to work with the Supermicro CSE-835TQ-R920B chassis shroud.
Cons: None - Does what it is designed to do.
Other Thoughts: I recommend this heatsink to others that are building Supermicro servers. This heatsink is designed to work with the server chassis fans and shroud to direct air flow through them.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill 2U 14 Inch-depth Cantilever Shelf RSA-2USHF002

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Solid Shelf
Pros: Very sturdy

No sharp edges

Mounting hardware included

Rugged Paint job
Cons: None at all
Other Thoughts: Cant go wrong with this shelf. It has almost no flex to speak of when in hand and zero flex when mounted. The Paint has a nice matte black finish and is very rugged. This finish feels like it should stand up to a good amount of abuse and resist chipping. Included mounting hardware is also painted black.

In all honesty, you will be hard pressed to find a flaw with this shelf. The thickness of the steel used is going to hold up against permanent deformation in any real world use case, in fact I would bet the shearing strength of the mounting hardware would fail well before the actual shelf would deform.

Categories > Server Accessories > Hewlett-Packard > HP A0K02A 8GB (1x8GB) DDR3-1600 ECC RAM Memory

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Fast Shipping, Great OEM RAM at decent price!
Pros: -OEM RAM
-Fast Shipping
-Fair price
-Each RAM card was shipped in its own plastic capsule (which can be reused)
Cons: -None
Other Thoughts: Used this RAM in my HP Z420 Workstation , which I turned into a media server. The RAM worked nicely considering this particular machine needed unbuffered, ECC memory (which is hard to find and expensive). Product shipped in individual plastic RAM sleeves which can be reused to protect other RAM laying around. I would buy from this vendor again.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill 1U 14 Inch-depth Cantilever Shelf RSA-1USHF002

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Very Sturdy rack shelf
Pros: Very thick metal
Non conductive thick Powder Coated (don't see this rubbing off like painted shelves)
Lots of ventilation
Cons: Not taking off an egg but the packaging may not have been the best because the lower left mounting corner was bent inwards on delivery. Used pliers to fix no problem.
Other Thoughts: built my own server wall mounted rack system. These shelves can be used to house routers and many other items. The vent holes make it easy to attach your hardware for a more secure fit.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill 2U 10 Inch-depth Cantilever Shelf RSA-2USHF001

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Third Party 2U Accessory
Pros: Mostly designed for 2U server with cage screws and washers, but can be used for many other things as well with the right screw kits. The size is versatile and standard, it fits in standard tool chest cabinets as well with tool-less installation as a secondary shelf with lips on every side of the shelf. Does not fit in any personal computer cases, but only in standard sized rack mount frames, which can also be used for a variety of specialized purposes, because that's the way it is. This is probably mostly appropriate for personal servers or small quantity orders inside mid-sized corporations. Most corporations do not use more than a few 2U/1U frames or servers. This is because they are not needed and other kinds of systems are used. There is not much difference compared to other similar 2U shelves. No shape optimization is present nor should be needed, just follow industry trends is sufficient. The thermal vents are designed correctly with structural strength factored in the design based on general industry structural guidelines. The material is obviously regular steel with a spray paint surface finish. The price is about right for this kind of server accessory. Steel is one of the best choices for this kind of applications, it is high strength designed for low cycle loads. As a result, Infinite life is definitely expected.
Cons: Maybe not a con and cannot be fixed, but slightly on the heavy side in terms of weight.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill 2U 14 Inch-depth Cantilever Shelf RSA-2USHF002

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 solid construction
Pros: -rounded corners
-no sharp edges
-sturdy
-great paint/finish
Cons: -none
Other Thoughts: This is the perfect size, between my 1U Server (Asus RS100), 1U switch and this shelf, it uses as much space as a typical ATX home server. I have a 4 space rack that can be mounted vertical or horizontal. I have it mounted vertical so my setup takes up a smaller footprint. Because of that, I had to get creative with mounting my modem, router, OBi, HDD enclosure and various other items but the venting holes made it possible. In order to do this I used velcro for some smaller items like the OBi but the heavier items I used screws & small washers. I just replaced existing screws with longer ones. This has cleaned my office up, I've been wanting to do something like this for a while.

This shelf has no sharp edges/it's not flimsy. A lot of the shelves I compared this to lacked venting holes on the side, depending on if you'll be mounting items in it vs just setting them in, keep that in mind. For my purpose, the holes on the sides were beneficial.

Categories > Server Accessories > Rosewill > Rosewill 2U 10 Inch-depth Cantilever Shelf RSA-2USHF001

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Simple, solid and functional
Pros: - heavy gauge steel, no flex at all, thanks in part to integrated front/back lips formed into the shelf platform
- nice finish, seems like powder coating - very tough.
- comes with hardware.
Cons: - hard to come up with any cons; it's a very well-made shelf.
- I guess maybe if your server depends on bottom-ventilation (not sure why a server would...) then depending on the location of vents, the slots in this shelf might not be enough for airflow.
Other Thoughts: - just make sure your chassis is 10 inches deep or less, otherwise it will ride up on top of the lip at the front of the shelf, or turn the shelf upside down and make sure to physically secure the server to the shelf - yes it will work that way if you want it to!
- keep in mind, this is a simple shelf and you can use it for all sorts of things, and the vent slots give you a nice way to secure things to the shelf for stability and safety. Just make sure you anchor to the wall using correctly rated fasteners.

Categories > Server Accessories > iStarUSA Inc. > iStarUSA BPU-350-Red 3x5.25" to 5x3.5" SATA2.0 Hot-Swap Backplane Raid Cage

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Good product with some correctable quirks. Have had this since 2009. Recently picked up a second unit.
Pros: - Holds 5 drives.
- Hot swappable.
- Indicator lights
- Stylish
Cons: - Stock fan has two settings, noisy and noisier. Ended up swapping fan out for a Noctua which required soldering wires to proprietary 3-pin connector. On older unit you just popped off the back cover to install. On new unit there is a dedicated fan shroud and a 20mm thick fan sitting on a lip while the Noctua fan is the standard 25mm thick. Ended up ditching the fan shroud and using small washers in order to get the Noctua fan secured to unit. Tight tolerances in my giant Caselabs SMA8 case as my reservoir, pump and some tubing are between the drive bays and the motherboard combined with the somewhat thick lip that the fan sits on turned the somewhat tight, but workable tolerances into a bit of a nightmare to work with the newer unit, but did get it installed. (This is a multi-purposed Linux box.) Airflow is much better on the new unit. Want to balance low noise with performance and this has been working out well. The fan I am now using for both units is the NF-A8 FLX 80mm 3-pin fan. To make fan swapping easier, I took an extension cable from the Noctua kit, cut it, cut the connector lose from the supplied fan, and made an adapter cable.

-Issues with buzzing sounds, at least on older unit. Came out to as the pic above is 90 degrees off from how it will sit in your system, the drives are actually sitting vertically and the vibration from the spinning drives can cause the drives and drive trays to rattle against each other as there are very small gaps, a little play room, and no pressure between drives, so they can float around a little and rattle against the neighboring drive. Corrected this with thin cut strips of soft foam and tape to hold the foam in place in order to force a consistent small gap between drives, though it might have been better to glue the strips in place or at least use better tape. (Maybe a future project if any of my drives fail.) Don't want to use too much or too thick foam or else airflow will get hampered or you won't be able to slide the drive back in. Newer unit drive trays have leaf springs, so this may fix the issue, but only time will tell.

-Gotta pay attention to the screws you use to mount the unit to the drive bay. The drive kit comes with short screws, which is good. If you instead decided to say use screws that came with your case, you may find they protrude into the cage and jam into the drives and drive trays. This issue is just inherent when trying to use the entire space for drives.
Other Thoughts: There are not that many options when it comes to 5 drive hot swap cages. Most have worse build quality than this unit. At least with this one a couple of mods can iron out the quirks and design changes over time have for the most part have helped resolve old issues and improve airflow.

An interesting feature on the new unit is it waits for the drives to get up to 40C before turning on the fan even when the fan speed is set to high, not auto. It is a bit unnerving when you look and don't see the fan spinning, but I am assuming this is done to get the drives up to their normal working temperature quickly as temperature does seem to affect drive life of mechanical drives and the temp being either too low or too high will negatively impact drive life. I think of it sort of like doing the warmup cycle on your car engine.
