We are really happy with our Bizon, and with the fast service from Bizon. They shipped within a few days of our order and the box was even better than expected. Gorgeous case, high-quality parts, quiet, with well thought out thermal. Thanks, Bizon!

Great machine handling our CG set extension for feature film very well.

It was easy to gather information about the equipment. We had some issues with the payment, we had to try 3 times to get it done. On the other hand, the equipment arrived really fast to Colombia after the payment was done.

Absolutely brilliant and also clutch. Needed to get back to work post - the - first - year of the pandemic and had to get in on a window of opportunity. Had the perfect amount of funds in a still somewhat tumultuous shipping and delivery pocket post-holiday.
Everything got in on time with no damage to the product. It only took me about an hour to set up and clone everything over by the end of the weekend that I got it. Kudos! and many thanks!

Thanks for your help and technical services group quality work on building and delivering a BIZON X4000 Workstation for my son Justin who recently graduated from graphics are school.
It was a well received Christmas gift that covered for his graduation and birthday gifts. I was able to power it up and get it fully functional without any issues. Until my son to works on some graphics art rendering, I will not know what I may have missed with the purchase. If anything I expect it to be some art software that I am not aware of.
Again thanks. Regards, Mike

Impeccable quality and workmanship! The station not only runs great, but looks great as well! My first two projects using it were like a dream. It rendered a 33 minute, eight track project with lots of 3D transitions and green screen effects like a hot knife through butter! Thank you Bizon!

Up to now everything was fine !! Our sales contact was able to solve all problems and could help us. Thanks a lot ! We will stronly recommend BIZON in the community ....
I purchased this system for mathematics research. I am a computational number theorist, so integer performance is my number one concern, followed by the need for massive amounts of fast RAM. With the pandemic forcing me to work at home I wanted a system that was quiet and energy-efficient enough to reasonably install in my home office rather than a server rack.
The AMD EPYC CPUs currently offer the best multi-core performance you can get on a single shared-memory system. I went with two EPYC 7H12 CPUs (128 physical cores) and 1TB of 3200 MHZ RAM (16x64GB DIMMs). I had to ask for the RAM memory speed to be upgraded as a custom configuration (and pay extra for it), since they configure these systems with 2666 MHz RAM by default. I chose liquid cooling because I wanted a system that would be quiet even under a heavy CPU load.
The system shipped a bit later than I was initially told it would (apparently due to an issue with the 3090 GTX GPU I selected), but other than the delay and an inability to log into my account on BIZON website to check its status (the password reset links they sent never worked for me) I have no complaints, the salesperson was quick to respond to my questions and willing to customize my configuration as required.
When the system arrived I was initially concerned by the fan noise, which was much louder than I had expected (well over 50 dB) -- even though the system is liquid cooled it still has fans to prevent heat from building up inside the case. However, when I contacted tech support they were extremely helpful and guided me through the process of adjusting the fan settings through the IPMI interface. Apparently they configure these workstations with the fans set to run at max speed (out of an abundance of caution I guess). Once I set the fan speed back to the standard setting the system was much quieter (under 40 dB) and still perfectly cool: even with all 128 cores fully loaded for hours at a time the CPU temperatures remain just under 50 C (far below the 85 C warning threshold). The liquid cooling option was expensive, but it does exactly what I wanted it to do so I am glad I chose it.
In terms of performance the multi-core Geekbench5 score for this system is 57839 (good enough to currently be listed on the front page), with an integer score of 66663. I'm a bit disappointed that (at least on the Geekbench test suite) the 7H12 chips seem to have no performance advantage over the 7742s, despite costing more and using more power. If I had it to do over again, I would probably get 7742s instead, but I don't blame the X6000 for this, indeed, the Geekbench score I posted is number one among all the 7H12 scores posted on their site (there are currently about a dozen from various manufacturers).
In any case, it is a small difference and I am still quite happy with my purchase. Having a quiet system that stays cool with rock-solid thermals is worth a lot to me.
I should note that I am not currently using the GPU in any serious way and only have 1 installed (the system can accommodate up to 4) -- GPU heavy users reading this review should not jump to any conclusions.

I needed to reinstall Bizon OS after mistakenly upgrading to Ubuntu 20.10. Ruben gave me instructions, reinstalled the Nvidia drivers, and ensured that my workstation is fully functional. Thank you!

Talking with technical support on the phone! They quickly solved my problem!
