Intel BOXDZ68BC LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None.

Cons: I ordered this board from another site when NewEgg was out of stock and had to RMA it because it was DOA. I bought it's replacement from NewEgg and it was also DOA.

Other Thoughts: Thanks Intel for putting me 3 days behind on a build. I thought I would be safe going with a product that you put your name on. If you're wondering, we tried 3 power supplies and 8 sticks of RAM. It's YOUR board.

Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast when working, 3.5" a plus for hot-plug trays

Cons: Fails daily in a RAID 0 array on an Adaptec 5405 while other arrays are fine.

Other Thoughts: This could be the controller (Adaptec) or it could be the drives, I do not know for sure but I do know that the other array on the controller is fine. This leads me to believe that it's the drives which is why I went with 3 eggs. When they are working they are REALLY fast.

SUPERMICRO SYS-7046A-T Workstation/Server Nehalem-ready Barebone, Dual LGA1366 Intel Xeon 5600/5500 Series (4U Rackmountable)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Supermicro puts that chassis together and cables the inside nicely. Plenty of room for GFX cards, hard drives, ROMs, etc. It's also very quiet even after I installed the high speed fans from SuperMicro to cool the Adaptec RAID card.

Cons: RAM compatibility. As with all SuperMicro motherboards, ONLY buy RAM off the tested memory list. Not doing so will cause many headaches. I have 24GB installed of which only 16GB is recognized. This is Kingston RAM from their list I just haven't had time to contact their support, which is poor.

Other Thoughts: These are great platforms to use for high-end workstations as opposed to buying something pre-made from Dell, HP, etc. You have much more freedom to customize and are not locked into proprietary hardware or power limitations. Not to mention, it's less expensive to go this route.
