5 out of 5 eggsSolid Inexpensive Server Solution

Pros: Basic install info:
Proc: i3 3220
Memory: Crucial CT2KIT51272BD160B (2x4GB ECC 800)
Power Supply: Thermaltake 500w
Case: Antec GX700
Boot: OCZ Vertex
Storage 4x1TB Seagate Constellation (RAID5)
OS: Windows Server 2008 R2

Board does everything a basic server requires, but there are also 3-4 other boards in the same ASRock series if this particular one does not meet your needs and all are within a few dollars of each other.

I do not use the additional Marvell RAID controller for anything other than an optical drive, however the 6 ports available to the Intel Matrix RAID are nice and simple to setup whether you use the RAID BIOS or configure through the Intel Matrix software via Windows.

Check most BIOS functions to see if they act as they should without need for flash/update and all worked as expected.

Boot time to an SSD on the Intel controller is around 20-30 seconds with all optimizations on.

The Intel C204 is limited, but it's more than sufficient for server functionality and the drivers have been rock solid.

This board would actually work very well as a bitcoin miner having 2 full size PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots and even with double width video cards still leaves a x2

Cons: The only real downside I've found for this board is more of a caveat; note the placement of the 24 pin power connector and it's absence near the SATA ports like most standard ATX boards. It's not a game stopper or even a game changer if you use a case with solid wire management. In my GX700 I needed to weasel the 24 pin connector through a small hole for the cleanest installation, but the hole was originally just made for the extra 8pin Proc power connector so I had to be very careful getting it through. Just consider wire management when you are picking out your case and this shouldn't be an issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA -- Nothing but green LED

Pros: NONE , didn't even power up and I am no beginner at this, I have built hundreds of working computers (most without any help of the lame Chinese brands).

Cons: Made in China = no quality control = 50% failure rate which they seem to see as somehow acceptable.
Newegg will send another one and we will see how much of it works (if any at all).

Other Thoughts: I gave up on ASUS for this same problem -- all made in China and if they work at all it is only for a day or two, then something will quit working (if not die completely).

Manufacturer Response:
