ASUS Z8NA-D6C Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server/Workstation Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Loaded with nearly every feature a PC/Server could want.

Cons: 1) The Tylersburg chipset runs EXTREMELY hot - leave it on long enough and you can't even touch the heat sink! I tried technical support and asked them if this was abnormal and what other customers were doing but they weren't very helpful. I ended up just screwing a little fan directly in to the heat sink just to be safe. Crude but effective.
2) There is a "feature" for chasis intrusion detection. Don't remove the jumper pins on that feature (refer to manual) or else you have to take the CMOS battery out to reset it. Otherwise your computer won't boot. Some feature.....

Other Thoughts: Overall you can't go wrong with dual CPU's and the loads of features.

Pros: Worked great out of the box. No problems.

Cons: No heat sinks on them doesn't get extremely hot either.

Other Thoughts: Fairly expensive but then again it's high-end material so it's worth it for a great product.

SUPERMICRO CSE-732i-500B Black Mid-tower Server Chassis 500W power supply w/ PFC, 80 PLUS Bronze 2 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: A case and PSU for the price is very comparable. Plenty of power cables for nearly everything you might want to plug in.

Cons: Of course it's not the "coolest" case around but if you only care about the hardware itself (which I did) then it's a great case. It also had a problem with shorting out my motherboard so I had to put some material down in between to stop that.

Other Thoughts: Basically, if you literally want a plain case without anything fancy this is the case for you.
