Supermicro Superchassis Cse-504-203B 200W Mini 1U Rackmount Server Chassis (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: o 1U that is no larger than a switch
o 200W Gold PSU
o Price
o Fits ITX Server board

Cons: o Missing a manual. However, It's not too much of a pain to obtain the PDF version of the manual from Supermicro's web site.
o Does not include the drive bays for 2.5" drives. you will have to spend the $8 + Shipping to order Item#: N82E16811994023. That was strike 1.
o No I/O plate for Supermicro MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard, but couldn't bundle the 6 possiable I/O shields? Strike 2!
o Need to order Item#: N82E16816101390 PCI-E x8 Slot to PCI-E Slot Riser Card which is $15. Strike 3!!!

Other Thoughts: This case is used to house Item#: N82E16813182234 which is the Supermicro MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard and 1 3.5 SATA and 1 2.5 SDD SATA ro make 1 pfSense set up. I understand that to add the $15 riser card and 2 $8 HDD trays would add and additional cost to the price tag, but it would save on shipping and inconvenience.

As far as the whole I/O shield issue, that is simply a vendor blunder.

It would have been nice if Newegg would tell me what's in the box and what's not included rather than just copy and paste from the mfg site. seems like Newegg service is deteriorating. Seems that expanding beyond computing parts and going with the amaz-on business model, I have been noticing a lot change for the worse.

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-A1SRi-2758F-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR3 1600/1333

Pros: -8 Core CPU
-4 Gib C2000 NICs
-1 dedicated IPMI LAN
-32 Gib RAM
-Form Factor
-USB 3.0

Cons: -USB 3.0 not reconised by ESXi 5.5

SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667

4 out of 5 eggs Fantastic as Mr. Fox! 09/06/2011

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667

Pros: IPMI and on board USB slot that no one can access without opening the case. 6x SATA ports for packing a Lian Li PC-Q08B case with hard drives.

Cons: Price a bit high for a atom processor board that only allows 4Gb DDR2 PC667. The CPU heatsink is super chincy and does not cool the CPU very well for a $200+ server motherboard. IPMI has issues reading RPM from fans.

Other Thoughts: Using this with FreeNAS 7.02 (8 sucks and offers no media serving capabilities). Build is Lian Li PC-Q08B (case), Mushkin 996618 (RAM), WD Green WD20EARS (6xHDDs), Some bronze 80 PSU 320W, OCZSSDPX-1RVD0050 (OS SSD). I had to knock an egg off for the heatsink issue and RAM limit. Heatsink is that important for server class.
