Based on the Intel C602 chipset, the SUPERMICRO SYS-5027R-WRF server barebone is a high-end server that supports state-of-the-art Intel Socket R (LGA 2011) Xeon CPUs and up to 256 GB DDR3 ECC memory, delivering stunning computing power to blaze through your most demanding applications. Four full-height PCIe 3.0 x8 slots and one low-profile PCIe 3.0 x8 slot provide substantial I/O bandwidth for current and future needs. 2x Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports enable bottleneck-free data transfer.
The chassis comes with 8x hot-swap 3.5" HDD bays for easy drive insertion and removal. Keeping everything cool is key to system reliability and stability. Three 7K RPM cooling fans are pre-installed to ensure efficient ventilation. A 500W PSU with 80 PLUS Platinum certification delivers abundant and robust power for the whole system with superior energy efficiency.
This review is from: SUPERMICRO SYS-5027R-WRF 2U Rackmount Server Barebone LGA 2011 Intel C602 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
Pros: Metal work well machined, everything fits smoothly. Motherboard fully compatible with FreeBSD 10.
Cons: Not really a con, but the chassis comes with a CPU heatsink. Don't buy one by mistake because Newegg won't pay for the return shipping on the surplus heatsink.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to run a ZFS RAID-Z2 filesystem, you're going to need 6 drives to make it worthwhile. Throw in a hot spare and you'll need a minimum of 7 drive bays. This chassis has 8 bays, so it is the minimum I'd get.
