This review is from: SUPERMICRO SNK-P0050AP4 Heatsink for Supermicro X9DR3-F Motherboard
Pros: Great "low profile" heatsink for server and workstations.
Much better than enthusiast heatsinks for Xeons
Other Thoughts: I have used this heatsink for over 4 years on Supermicro, ASUS and Intel server and workstation motherboards. The heatsink is very similar to the HP server heatsinks originally used in an older HP ML150 server.
Current: Dual E5-2630 Solidworks Workstation, Single E5-2630V2 HyperV Host server.
This review is from: Intel NUC Kit DC53427HYE 2 x 204Pin Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: Great little machine for remote display use, machine control and mother-in-law email machine.
Super simple installation, once you obtain the required parts: MSATA hdd, WI-FI adapter, Memory.
The mini display port connectors are great to have.
Intel 4000 graphics work for industrial use.
Cons: Why Intel did not add the power cord?
Other Thoughts: This is the first commercial version of the NUC. It is designed for OEM's, not consumers. It has been on the market for about a year now. It is also the Intel version of the NUC. Other manufacturers have already filled the pipeline with updated products. Disclaimer: I am an Intel Channel Partner.READ FULL REVIEW
