    Is this a FAIR?

    Just wondering what you guys think of this pricing...

    1 Intel Xeon Quad-Core E3-1230 3.2GHz 5 GT/s 1155pin 8MB 80W CPU
    4 Super Talent W1333EB4G DDR3-1333 4GB/256x8 ECC Server Memory
    2 Seagate ST31000524AS 1TB SATA3 7200rpm 32MB NCQ Hard Drive
    1 Supermicro X9SCL-F Motherboard with IPMI Remote Management
    1 Supermicro P0046P Heatsink
    1 Supermicro 811T-260B Chassis
    1 3ware 9650SE-2LP Raid Card
    1 Supermicro RR1U-E8 PCI-E 8x Riser Card

    Total comes to: $1230

    Any thoughts on this pricing?

    Brand New or Used ? If used, what type of condition?

    Price is quite good. Without the raid card, single HDD and with 8G RAM you'd be looking at around $800.

    Who is providing that server? Looks kinda nice. Price is quite reasonable/good as well. Do you mind telling where you found the deal from?

    The pricing seems to be pretty good, but one thing that I would recommend would be looking into a different chassis with more airflow. The RAID card will need a lot of airflow and the chassis has only 2 fans with 4200 RPM.

    I will disclose the company once the pricing is set and finalized.

    9650SE sucks though.. I'd pay more and ask for a 9750.
    'Ripcord'ing is the only way!

    I have actually compared the pricing for hardware with NewEgg and SuperBiiz since something did not seem to be right, and the price for the same hardware has came up to be much cheaper. Over $200 cheaper.

    RandomMake, with SuperBiiz you can get the same configuration for about $1,050. Also if you call SuperBiiz and tell them that your order is over $1,000 they will give you a very nice discount So you can get the same server configuration for under $1,000 with SuperBiiz and you can pay like $35 for the them to assembly the server for you

    The majority of chassis only have two PWM fans.. You can always throw another one on the left side. (non-PWM)

    #1 ($220)
    #2 ($200)
    #3 ($120)
    #4 (~$200)
    #5 (~$25?)
    #6 (~$150) (I got a few 812L for ~$120 each)
    #7 $175
    #8 ~$20

    ~$1,100

    So no.. not a good deal.
