Broadberry CyberServe XE5-102S v3 review

Broadberry’s pizza-box server shows that good things do come in small packages

Under the hood

The CyberServe presents a very well-designed interior and we found all key components easy to get at for routine maintenance and upgrades. We have the RS400-E8-PS2-F model so the six dual-rotor cooling fans are all lined up at the back behind the motherboard.

Directly in front are dual CPU sockets and the price we've shown includes a pair of 1.9GHz 6-core E5-2609 v3 Xeons. Each socket is flanked by eight DIMM slots and if your pockets are deep enough for 64GB LR-DIMMs, you can push capacity to an app-crunching 1TB.

Overall noise levels are surprisingly low as well. The fans do whine a bit but this won't be an issue in a rack cabinet and even when on the lab bench, we didn't find them intrusive.

The server includes full remote control and power management as standard features
