Kingston 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Server Memory Model KVR16LSE11/8KF

Pros: Very good memory works as advertised. i picked up 32 gig for supermicro A1SRi 2758 server board running ESXI, PFSense and FreeNAS.

Cons: Newegg's partner took almost six days to ship from date of invoice (how Pathetic)

Overall Review: would buy again but be for warned "you will wait for it"

iStarUSA S-35-DE5BL Black Aluminum / Steel Tower Compact Stylish 5x 3.5" Hotswap Trayless mini-ITX Tower - Blue HDD Handle

Pros: Fairly good build quality looks nice.

Cons: lacks power supply, lacks rear fan, case cover is flimsy at bottom. Power supply brackets are not reversible to other side of case. mother board cable to short to reach so i had to reverse power supply which works fine but now it's just laying in the case with now way to secure it. WAY WAY OVER PRICED! hard drive bay doors are really cheep, i'm afraid i will break them.

Overall Review: poor design of power supply bracket. the designers anticipated power supply being reversed because their are escape holes on both sides of box so why the heck didn't they make the bracket reversible instead of spot welding it to the case bottom (STUPID). after i ordered this sorry case i found one on the bay for the same price that came with a rear fan and 300 watt power supply for the same price. i think it was C-1 buy it not this greedy manufacture.

Awesom !

SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR3 1600/1333
SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: it works. it was my first supermicro board and it won't be the last. boots a little slow but has lots of options. recognized everything and had NO issues what so ever. nice to have internal usb A plug on board just wish the other header was that way but got header usb 3 adapter and is humming along.

Cons: Sata 3 only two with 4 sata 2 NO VD-T support this i am very mad about. i might not of purchased this board if i had done more homework. but the end result is great. has Marvell Nic Transceiver back end (YUCK)

Overall Review: Board is humming along with 32 gig of memory, 5 2 TB reds, two usb's and one 240GB Kingston HyperX with ESXI, PFSense and FreeNAS. be sure to change your MBuf's in PFsense immediately or it will panic and freeze with your nic's. amazing to have everything in one box at 20 watts. can have multiple friends over and everyone listening to there own music or video all behind a dedicated firewall. all attacks stopped once behind PFsense. i love it, yes i would by again
