Pros: Works

Cons: oem drive, shipped in bubble wrap. The ASUS DVD Suite that was shipped with it did not survive the trip. Looks like someone took a bite out of it. Thats why the two eggs down, shipping. Did not need the disk as it will not run in 2008 server anyway.

Overall Review: Other than the shipping seems like a solid drive.

Pros: easy to set up, runs stable so far.

Cons: Ships with a 2 port usb - 1 port eSATA module. It should ship with a 2 port usb - 1 port 1394. There is no connection on the motherboard to plug in the eSata cable for this connector. Called ASUS - they said I need to call new egg. New egg offered to replace the motherboard with a different model (Thanks new egg!!). Makes you wonder what kind of testing they do at ASUS as the components shipped with the motherboard will not fit the motherboard.

Overall Review: Other than the wrong connector packaged with the motherboard it seems pretty solid. Running with a XEON E3-1245, 16GB Kingston ECC mem, 2 seagate 1TB- 3Gb/s in raid 1, 2 seagate 1TB - 6Gb/s in raid 1 running Windows small office server essentials, all in an antec 300 case. Boot first time no problems.

Pros: works as advertised, used as xbox/media center extender.

Cons: older technology, no wireless N but I new that when I bought it.

Overall Review: A lot of reviews talked about not being able to set it up, leave the easy set up in the box and learn a little about routers. Set up is simple. Had to laugh when I read one that said it wasn't compatable with a MAC.

for i7-8605/10/2010 6:07:28 AM

Pros: - quiet, stock fan makes more noise. - dropped idle temps by 5c. - dropped full load temps by 28c, my high temps are in the low 50c range (measured in real temp with prime 95 small fft running and passmark burn in test running while surfing the net, 2 hours total time). Stock fan they would reach almost 90c. - temps drop to normal from full load very fast. - easy to install - cutout in my case allowed me to leave the motherboard installed during installation. Directions and illistrations simple to follow.

Cons: - Clips and rubber strips to attach fans to the heatsink. They seem to work ok but for this price you would think they would have a more secure way of attaching the fans. - No PWM, however with how quiet the fans are I just left them on high, no need for me to use the low-noise adapters.

Overall Review: the heatsink has a slightly convex surface so I mounted the heat sink so the air blows from front to back of my case. This way the heatsinks high spot lines up overs the 4 cores.
