Athena Power RM-2U2260SV48 Black Steel 2U Rackmount Server Case With V2.2 ATX 480W Dual Fan Power Supply 1 External 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good case, solidly built. PSU is included along with three 80mm fans.

Cons: I spent 3 hours getting an ATX board to fin in this case. The holes are there, in the correct place but the two fans in the middle prevent the board from fitting correctly. I ultimately had to pull the fans out and put ht eon the opposite side of the fan mounting plate, then put the thing back into the case.
There are also only 2 SATA power connectors available on the PSU, so I had to get a couple Molex to SATA adapters to use the SATA hard drives and SATA DVD drive.

The hard drive mounting cages (especially the front one) is difficult to get into, so I had to pull that out and mount the hard drives then put the cage back into the case.
It's nice having those big fans moving air around while it's running but it makes building from the ground up difficult.

Other Thoughts: Good case if you only have one or two SATA devices (or have some adapters readily available)

SUPERMICRO MBD-X8STE-O LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Xeon Server Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Decent board. Plan on using it for a ESXi server.

Cons: Have to buy an extra part for the CPU cooler which isn't mentioned anywhere. It's a $4 part, but I'm stuck wiaitng on that before i can finish the build. Very poor documentation that doesn't note that this part BKT-0023L is needed.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure it's a great board once it's up and running.
