5 out of 5 eggsWindows Home Server 2011

Pros: Cheapest mobo w/ 4 Sata ports. Low, low energy use. No fancy graphics gpu to power. Nice small size (mini-itx)

Cons: Cheap -- small heatsink, loud fan. Two sata ports use jmicron chipset, not Intel. Realtek Network chip, not Intel. My sys fan header doesn't power any of my fans (but I don't need it.)

Other Thoughts: Plugged the mobo fan into the 5volt plug off the power supply, and the fan is now quiet. Yet chipset is still cool -- (F9 Bios update fixes temp reading too high.)

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Nas4free

Pros: works.....
there really is nothing AMAZING about this motherboard however that's expected when working with low end machines.

Cons: There wasn't a DVI output. Had to round up a cheap cable and then an adapter for my monitor.
(see my after thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Since im using this as a FreeNas file server note my review with a gain of salt. I didnt install windows on this, so i have no idea if it plays netflix, loads office quickly or un zips files fast.... For me, it works 24/7 which is perfect for me! All hardware supported in Freenas for those of you interested.

5 out of 5 eggsReplacement for an old Asus MB

Pros: I purchased this motherboard mainly because it also accepted IDE/PATA drives. My son has a very old computer that was built using an Asus XV98 MB which ran on a AMD Duron processor which still runs well. He had this computer since he was in kindergarten. He is now a college student in civil engineering which requires a definite upgrade both in hardware and software. However, there are some programs and data that he literally created and grew up with which unfortunately are on IDE/PATA drives. This particular mb solves the problem of keeping legacy drives and also have enough horsepower to view videos both on you-tube and other various sites. The old motherboard was reliable, yet it it would not deliver video. At least now we have a means to view our oldies and at the same time migrate to the SATA hard-drives as time permits. Highly recommended.

I also want to comment on the excellent customer service received from Newegg. The first motherboard arrived defective . ( No video). MB was RMA'd
and a replacement shipped within a span of a week. We had to jump through a few hoops, but the end result was worth the wait. We now have an excellent piece of hardware which will hopefully last my son at least until he finishes and graduates from college. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Cons: Had a big problem recognising the old IDE/PATA drives. Hint, make sure that when you plug in the 40 pin ribbon cables that the side with the notch is positioned in the correct orientation. That's part of the reason the SATA standard was adopted.

Other Thoughts: Next time I will go all out and buy a motherboard which supports an Intel I7.

1 out of 5 eggsRAID Drivers

Pros: Good Value

Cons: The system said it has RAID. It does. It supports hardware RAID on 2 of the SATA drives and some type of proprietary Gigabyte "RAID" for the other two??? After fooling with it for 3 days, eventually I couldn't get anything to boot. Also, the only way to clear the CMOS is removing the battery. This is not so bad, but after you have removed the battery a dozen or so times, it gets repetitive.

Other Thoughts: Could I have made it work? I don't know. There is only so much time in life and I gave this more than I should have.

5 out of 5 eggsUsed for a cheap server

Pros: Installed ClearOS 5.2 on this board and setup up a software RAID for a server. No problems have occurred during the almost two years of use. Would absolutely buy this again for another server system board.

Cons: FreeNAS would not install on this board, but ClearOS works fine.

2 out of 5 eggsRAID Caveat

Pros: Small form factor
low power usage
Quiet

Cons: RAID 5 has failed twice in the two years that I've owned this board.

Other Thoughts: It looks like this board uses a bridge for half of the SATA ports. Under moderate load, I've seen this bridge timeout under Linux causing the 4 drive RAID 5 to lose two drives and crash the array.

I decided to add this information after the second instance I've had to try and rebuild the RAID.

If using 4 drive RAID, you may consider an external PCI controller and just use the embedded controller for boot.

It also looks pretty solid for RAID 1...

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: For a few years now I've been building a series of these systems on a ~$200 a piece budget using Intel Atom D525 board. By now I have a pretty good idea what to expect as far as performance.

Just for comparison, I was testing against other office systems, they run about as fast as Pentium III @1.1GHz for older 32-bit programs from 10 years ago. I supposed the dual core is wasted on them, but it should give a slight boost to multitasking in XP at least over the aging systems they are replacing. Just as long as they run those old programs in XP and keep the cost low is all I really need it to do and they serve that purpose well.

Cons: Not much, except for one confusing part during installation.

When you put in the front panel wires for the Power LED and you only have two wires coming from the case, DO NOT put them on the set of 3 pins labeled "Power LED" as it will not work. Instead they go on the lower left set of pins on the double row where all the other front panel connectors go.

Other than that, it's a decent little Atom board.

Other Thoughts: Up until now I've been using the Intel branded ones, but I just set up a few of these today and seem just as good. You can even use the same drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsGA-D525TUD

Pros: I finally found a use for my old Windows XP Professional CDROM. I loaded it to this GA-D525TUD Atom Mini-ITX motherboard. The last time I ran Windows XP the year was 2003 and some of those computers were struggling to run it. I put 4GB of G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 memory on this board and Windows XP Professional runs great! It is snappy quick. Netflix runs great with the integrated GPU too! I am networking with a Zonet ZEW1605S wireless PCI adapter. I have a solid 54Mbps connection. Just make sure that you load all of the AUDIO, CHIPSET, LAN, SATA and VGA drivers from the Gigabyte web site. Then your off and running.

Cons: None to report. I am impressed!

Other Thoughts: Why spend a lot of money? If all that your doing is surfing the web, watching Netflix and DVD movies and running Microsoft Office. This board does a great job.
