4 out of 5 eggsAnnoying and Amazing

Pros: Fast, surprisingly fast, small with little heat even with passive cooling, usb3, hdmi, onboard intel hd much improved over older gma video

Cons: Wonky bios setup that isn't clear on what some things do. Newegg and reviews list this as windows 7/8/8.1 compatible but manual lists only 8/8.1 even though 7 works (after you figure out bios settings) Had a nightmare installing windows 7 from usb key, seems after setup would start the board would just shut off all usb ports, Did not have this issue with Ubuntu 14 at all but note you must enable CSM (Compatibility Support Module) if you plan to use anything that is not UEFI compatible (aka windows 7).
Not a con but maybe an oem error, after i installed windows i used the supplied dvd to install all drivers and after it was finished and rebooted, my intel turbo driver couldnt start, video was not installed at all (standard vga only) and i still have an unknown device in my device manager that i have no idea what it is yet, but nothing connected except for a dvd rw, usb keyboard/mouse with no hubs and a usb wifi adapter that i installed the driver for and is working fine.

Other Thoughts: Lots of thoughts on this board, i has infuriated me almost to the point of returning it until i thumbed thru settings and got usb working like it should. Just to see how this thing would fair I loaded up Neverwinter Online, set the video settings to about 3 notchs from min. on their slider, logged in and to my supprise the game was completely playable (for pve purposes not sure about pvp) main city was a little laggy but nothing too horrible, combat zones was completely smooth. Not saying this is a gaming board by far but knowing that it can hold it own on this game very very much impressed me. Celeron and intel onboard video have come a long way in the last few years. After figuring out what to change (and yes ps2 ports worked fine but i didnt have a keyboard on hand that was ps/2) in the bios and seeing it in action, im happy with it.

3 out of 5 eggsWill work with FreeNAS

Pros: Small, does not draw much power and does stay under 60 C in a small fanless enclosure (not that I would recommend that you do that). Also pretty cheap.

Cons: Documentation leaves a lot to be desired and there does not appear to be any speed controls for the two system fan connectors so if you're looking for a quite build make sure you have some other way of controlling the fan speed. Also Biostar cheaped out with some of the Capacitors so not sure how long these boards will last. Might want to spend a few bucks more on the Gigabyte board Newegg sells instead as it looks to be a better build quantity.

Does not have drivers to support Linux so while I got some distros to start the boot process they all choked when it came time to load graphical drivers. This will probably be fixed by the Linux community sooner or later but may take some time.

Other Thoughts: OK got this yesterday and spent over 4 frustrating hours trying to get FreeNAS to boot on this thing, tried everything including trying to just get various distro's of Linux to boot just to try and find out what's going on. Lesson learned is that you must set the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to enable for anything other than windows 8 to boot.

Can't say how well this will work with FreeNAS as it is limited to 8GB RAM and does not have ECC support but I'm just playing around with it to learn so don't really care. If you really want to do it right get the ASRock Avoton based boards (they're $200+ more than this one but worth it in my opinion if you're serious about running a real NAS and not some plaything like what I've got).
