SUPERMICRO C7Z97-OCE Intel Z97 LGA 1150 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Dual Gb LAN DDR3 3300 (OC) Server Grade Gaming ATX Motherboard

Pros: Supermicro's reputation for rock-solid stability and highly responsive customer service.

Cons: None that I can think of at this time.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this mobo primarily because of Supermicro's reputation for high-quality, server-grade hardware. I had a problem getting an Adaptec 72405 24-port RAID card to work with this board (system was rebooting spontaneously whenever the Adaptec boot-time RAID configuration utility was accessed via CTRL/A). I submitted a trouble ticket to Supermicro via their website. Within 2 hours I had an email response, and within 2 days I was able to download and flash a brand-new custom BIOS flash update that resolved the problem. As an IT professional I appreciate this kind of highly responsive customer service. I am back on track with my backup server project now, and I am planning on purchasing more of these Supermicro boards in the very near future.

5 out of 5 eggs Really Nice Rack 07/14/2013

This review is from: Ibera PakRak Bicycle Touring Carrier Plus+ IB-RA5 (with disk brake mounts)

Pros: I cycle an average of 550 miles per month (15 miles Monday through Friday and 50-80 miles on Sundays). I've had a hard time finding adequate storage, especially for the weekend trips. I purchased the largest seat bag that I could find, but its capacity was barely 2 liters. I also tried a backpack, but didn't like the way my back became drenched with sweat during my ride. I decided to try a rear-mounted bicycle rack, and I selected the IBERA model IB-RA5 after some serious research on the Internet. Let me tell you, this thing is light as a feather, but built like a tank! It fits like a glove on my Giant "Seek 3", and my disc brakes were no problem at all with the supplied standoff adapters. I've since purchased a matching IBERA commuter bag that is designed to securely clip onto the IBERA rack, and I couldn't be happier. The 17 liters of storage I now have is more than enough capacity for essential bike tools and parts, snacks, gloves, arm-warmers and cold-weather gear (I ride year-round).

Cons: None so far, still loving it :-)

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with my IBERA purchases and would definitely recommend them over Planet Bike and some of the other vendors offering similar rear-rack solutions.
