TYAN S5510GM3NR Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs This is a great motherboard 06/28/2011

This review is from: TYAN S5510GM3NR Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C204 DDR3 1600

Pros: The IPMI/KVM does in fact work when the computer is powered off. In terms of ram, just use what they ask for, and you'll be fine. It had great documentation, and temperatures are low. Worked with ESXi under this setup:
2x2GB ECC Unbuffered 1333Mhz ram
1TB Samsung
750GB Hitachi Deskstar
380w 80+ Bronze Antec
in win br655

Cons: For some reason, Ubuntu server does not like the motherboard in AHCI mode, but this is a common issue, and could be due to my setup (will update if I get working).

Other Thoughts: The IPMI/KVM is somewhat setup in a weird way. If you want to use the web interface, it will not be available when the computer is off. But, as long as you use a static ip, if you have an open console, it will remain active. So I'm pretty sure that you could send a request to power on the computer without the website

Verbatim TUFF-'N'-TINY 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable / Purple) Model 96816
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, Fast

Cons: I attached the flash drive to my keys with the lanyard...and my keys are always in my pocket...always.

Well my first one lasted about a week. I RMA with Newegg and received a new one.
The new one lasted less than a week. I have had cheaper, free, flash drives last longer than this.

The only words that can describe my experience is Disappointment, and regret.

Other Thoughts: Just stay away, you will thank me.

Thermaltake N0012US Aluminum & Plastic 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This drive is extremely cool and quiet. It has an esata port which really gives a noticeable increase in speed.

Cons: the power cord is somewhat short and will wiggle around a bit.

Other Thoughts: as long as you dont let the drive stand up vertically then you should be fine with the power cord.
