HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 MicroServer Server System Intel Celeron G1610T 2.3GHz 2C/2T 2GB DDR3 No Hard Drive 712317-001
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: nice on paper

Cons: fan would blow up 100% constantly. Was not able to fix even with hours on phone with hp support
issues when using AHCI
not compatible with regular memory. Need to use super expensive hp mem
no sata cable top (where one could put SSD instead of DVD)
Very long boot time (minutes)

Other Thoughts: I had a hp mediasmart before, and was extremely happy with it. The microserver looked liked the logical replacement.
very disappointed

ASUS P8H77-I LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 6 SATA connectors; rare for this size
Great mem compatibility
been up & running for 6 months non stop with no issues

Cons: Asus upgrade utility crashes.

Cannot configure case fans below 40% using bios or asus's fan xpert software. If it wasn't for this limitation I'd have a super silent/low consumption build

only 1 case fan connector on mobo (had to use splitter)

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: mobo has nice colors
comes with SATA/IDE cables

Cons: Won't POST. Dr. Debug LED gives me 0x22. No documentation regarding this error code. Customer support is so far unresponsive.

no usb 3.0 front ports.

Documentation is a little sparse in general.

Other Thoughts: I'll update the review if I can get the mobo to work
