There are many ways that you can get your servers. You can buy them from OEMs that are pre-built, buy a barebones kits, or build the whole thing yourself.
One of the easiest ways to get started is to pick up a barebones kit and install your CPUs, RAM, and drives of choice.
Today, we will be looking at an ASRock Rack 2U12L6SC-2TS6 barebones server kit. The motherboard used in the ASRock 2U12L6SC-2TS6 is the EP2C602-2TS6/D16.
The ASRock 2U12L6SC-2TS6 is very close to the ASRock EP2C602-2T/D16 Server Motherboard (Intel C602) that we reviewed recently.
The main difference between these two motherboards is the storage options available on the two boards.
Here you can see what the server looks like after we opened the shipping box. The server comes shipped in protective foam inserts. Located on the side is a small accessory box.
We really liked how the foam inserts came in two pieces. This allows us to remove the top piece at both ends and simply lift out the server. Many servers we receive come with an insert that slips over both ends; this means we have to pull the whole server out before we can remove the inserts.
The server comes with a simple accessory list: just a manual, driver disk, and hard drive mounting screws. We like printed manuals a lot here because we don't have to find a PDF file and view that on a separate computer.
