ASUS X99-DELUXE II LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like that it has two U.2 ports and also an M.2 slot. I'm using all three, and often ream the IO to good effect for database tasks.

Cons: Can't put it to sleep, or it will crash on resume or within 5 minutes of resume. Spontaneous crash once per week with nothing helpful in the Windows event log (it just logs that it recovered from an unexpected shutdown).

I regret my purchase. For this price, I'd have been better off with a cheaper stable board and a pair of U.2 adapter cards. The time spent troubleshooting this has cost too much as well.

I've eliminated the other hardware.

Other Thoughts: I'm up to date on BIOS, the latest version helped to defer the crash-on-wake bug until a minute or two after waking more often than before (before was immediately or within 30 seconds). I can only hope they'll continue to target this issue.

TRENDnet TV-IP743SIC Day/Night, Built-in 2 Way Audio WiFi Baby Camera

1 out of 5 eggs Dead on day 2 12/03/2016

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP743SIC Day/Night, Built-in 2 Way Audio WiFi Baby Camera

Pros: Lots of features...most are a great idea.

Cons: Garbage in-terms of electronic durability.

Died on the 2nd day, and was stuck in a restart loop (boot light, purple light, error light, repeat), complete with audible clicking (a relay in there?!). Tried factory reset, and troubleshooting by the no avail.

Other site reviews indicate this is a common thing (works out of the box and then dies days or weeks later). There has to be a component somewhere in there getting hocked on the Chinese assembly line or something along those lines.

Other Thoughts: Great until it is garbage...and I'd bet that's an inevitability for too many of these units.

Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs Did not fit LGA 2011 02/12/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII M4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Fits in rack mount cases (fits 3U, maybe smaller).

Cons: I tried every way, including putting significant force on my nice new ASUS server motherboard. The screws on the LGA 2011 mounts simply could not be made to reach into the female threaded sockets of the mounting posts on the motherboard.

They would barely even touch...the screws were just not long enough.

Other Thoughts: There is another review on here about forcing this to fit an LGA 2011...mine was too far off to be forced...probably some design and QA problems (screw should be long enough to screw into the posts, not just meet them).
