The motherboard is first cleaned with a 70PSI air gun to remove any and all dust that have accumulated during its previous use.Heatsinks are removed, and any thermal compound is cleaned off the CPUs, the LGA2011 brackets, and the heatsinks. At this point, the motherboard is ready for testing. This motherboard will come with a full report from the testing process.
Testing is done with 2 CPUs and 16x16GB DIMMs with the board installed in a Supermicro server chassis. Every PCI-E slot is tested with a LSI 9207-8i card. The onboard SAS controller is tested with 8x SAS lanes connected to a direct attached backplane. All ethernet ports are tested by configuring IP on the interface and running network benchmark to another system. All fan headers are tested where possible.
All IPMI sensors are checked. The dedicated IPMI network port is tested.
If the battery voltage is less than 3.0V, the CMOS battery is replaced (this will be noted in the testing report). USB ports are tested where possible.

First, the CPU sockets are covered with an official LGA2011 plastic socket protector. Second, the motherboard is sealed in an anti-static shielded bag, not the "pink" stuff, or just bubble wrap. Thirdly, the motherboard in the anti-static bag is placed on soft foam, and enclosed in a thick cardboard container. This provides a protected surface so that delicate SMD components do not get damaged, and the rigid cardboard container provide protection to the surface of the motherboard. The test report is attached to the outside of this "inner" box.
Fourth, the "inner" box is placed in a second larger box with cushioning material. I'm aware of counterfeit products on the market, and I make every effort to ensure that what I sell are not counterfeit. I have a YouTube channel with many helpful videos. Look for "Art of Server" on YouTube. I fully test the HBAs I sell.See my testing process on YouTube. I clean the server components I sell. You will not receive something covered in dust, or have unwanted stickers/labels, etc.
I love what I do! I've used ZFS for many years. I'm familiar with ZFS on Linux, FreeNAS, and many of the technologies commonly used by other enthusiasts. How can you deny my cute, cuddly charm?
Who is the Art of Server? I'm a cat lover and a server enthusiast.
I've operated my own rack of servers at home for almost 20 years. I've helped many friends and strangers with their servers.
