Excellent cooling and the ones I've worked with have been trouble free (as well as inexpensive). These are less expensive than the TYAN that Jeremi is using, but not exactly inexpensive either - starting at $2.5k here for a suitable platform (including PSU and motherboard), plus another $2k+ for two CPUs adequate for this platform (OK, can choose a crappy CPU and install just one - then it's cheaper), plus RAM, plus disk. If we'd (need to) install four Xeon Phi's (in 2U), that cost would be acceptable, but for just one it feels excessive. Alexander
