Great system for the money

SUPERMICRO SYS-5037A-i Mid-Tower Server Barebone LGA 2011 Intel C602 1866 / 1600 / 1333 / 1066 MHz ECC DDR3 SDRAM 72-bit, 240-pin gold-plated DIMMs

Pros: Very stable system, allowing for pretty dense computing resources for a workstation. The system comes with absolutely nothing in it that is not explicitly requested in order, a con to some, but a huge pro to me. It also operates very quietly, and its heat production is also reasonable given my configuration (Xeon E5-2620, 32Gb RAM and 2 2050 GPUs) and usage.

Cons: I lost one of the pads at the bottom of the enclosure. Would be nicer if they were fastened with screws rather than glued.

Overall Review: I recommend this machine to anyone interested in doing computational work on a desktop (simulations involving simulations of large sets of ordinary and partial differential equations in my case).
