SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-I Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333/1066

4 out of 5 eggs Know what you are getting before you purchase 12/05/2014

This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5037C-I Pedestal Server Barebone LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333/1066

Pros: -Small Chassis means it fits nicely on the shelf.
-Quiet, even with the optional front fan.
-This is a great value for the price.
-The Chassis is well built and sturdy. Heavy and solid!
-I have had this server running for about a year and only restarts for Windows updates. This this is very reliable if you upgrade a few parts.

Cons: -RAID does not work with Server 2012 OR Windows 7 Pro. Like another reviewer, I was directed by SuperMicro to the FTP site for the drivers and it still didn't work. I ended up buying a PCIe RAID controller.
-Power Supply is INADEQUATE for more than 2 HDDs

Other Thoughts: As long as you buy a better power supply and get an external RAID controller you should be fine. i just want to point out that other newer Super Micro Barebones servers have worked with RAID just fine.

Pros: -Plays any game I throw at it including newer ones like Far Cry 3

Cons: - After about a year the fan started making a lot of noise
- Now the fan has failed and causes the card to overheat and stutter games
- After the fan broke my FPS randomly drop to 10-15 on games I used to run 30-75 FPS

Other Thoughts: Since I have 3 massive 20mm Case fans and a huge Heatsink fan cooling my case I can still play most games without issue as long as I don't play for long periods of time. I will be contacting the manufacturer after I post this review.
