I also got their i3 8gb server. Its definitely worth the price. Performance seems very consistent.
Note that they use custom kernels for Linux (with modules disabled) which means that you will have to re-compile the kernel if you want to enable some modules.
Having modules disabled by default is a better default security stance.
Would you be able to provide dmesg output and "lspci -vv" output for the i3 system?
