I was wondering if anyone had experience with purchasing render nodes. Does anyone know any good companies to use? Did you build your own?

Here is a list of the companies I found that make 1U nodes. LantechPC is much more affordable than Boxx when considering the exact same processor. Their nodes don't take as much room I guess, but that's not as important to me because I won't be filling up an entire rack or anything.

boxxtech.com (http://www.boxxtech.com/)

I was thinking of getting: Dual Intel Ten-Core Xeon E5-2680v2 2.80 GHz.

Anyways, I will have more time next week to look, but I just wondered if anyone else used other companies that I should consider.
