1 out of 5 eggsApparently dead after 10 months

Pros: FreeNas support, large memory capacity, small form factor, server quality (?)

Cons: It died. Past Newegg's return policy. I sent e-mail to ASRock today. We'll see.

5 out of 5 eggsASRocking Power House that uses very little power

Pros: What can I say about this modo besides that it ROCKS!!! I caught it on a black friday deal with 32 gigs of Mushkin Enhanced Stealth Model 997069S and after racking my brain over the configuration (hint: set your memory timing and voltage for stability)have rock solid ESXI 6.0 server up and running with some tip on getting VMware to recognize the Marvell chipset from "VMware Front Experience".

Cons: Not buying two at the reduce price, I need to build a small lab.
Lacks USB 3 or Thunderbolt ports

Other Thoughts: Contrary to what the documentation says, this will run ESXi very well. Im currently running FreeNAS, Windows Server 2013, and a OS X client without even denting the performance. I wish I could only afford a VMware ESX license to enable xHCI (PCI passthrough) and management though vSphere.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality product with top notch support, great for NAS

Pros: - compact board with lots to offer
- plentiful number of sata3 ports and a couple of sata2 ports
- great price (got it during black friday, $200 with rebate)
- top customer support (see story below)
- include 6 sata cables

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: So I received the board and 4 of the 8 sata3 ports (on one of the marvell controllers) were not working. Contacted support and didn't get a response until about 2-3 days later (little slow). Ran me through about 4 steps of pulling watch battery, depleting all power from the board, and resetting the BIOS settings. The sata ports sprang back to life! I had initially changed some BIOS settings based on the setup I was going to run (outlined below) and made a mistake. Tried changing things back but I guess you have to pull the watch battery and drain all power from the board before the new settings would stick. Anyways it got fixed. Once I got an initial response from ASRock, replies were quick and the problem got solved quickly. The guy I used was called William and he said I could share his email address and if anyone else is having any problems, shoot him an email directly! william@asrockamerica.com

Board has been running fine and cool for about 3 weeks now. Time will tell how well it lasts but I'm optimistic!

Setup:
-ASRock C2550D4I Mini ITX
- SilverStone DS380B case
- 2 x Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered
- 4 x 2TB Seagate 7,200RPM 2.5" drives
- FreeNAS (headless)

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a great board

Pros: This is a great NAS motherboard. 4 RAM slots, ECC support,, 64 GB max memory, 12 SATA port , 8 SATA3, 4 SATA2. Remote access.

Cons: No real complaints. I wish it had USB3 and HDMI. They would be nice to have.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a low power, quiet, server grade motherboard to run your home built NAS you could not choose a better board. I am looking forward to a newer version with HDMI and USB3 at some point.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother DOA

Pros: It was delivered when it said it would be

Cons: Dead, no post codes to speak of, constant flashing green led. Nothing in the manual about it either.

Other Thoughts: High hopes but alas another miss! Seems to be the lottery with this board. You're either happy with it, Or quality assurance was asleep when this lot came through. Currently looking at competitors

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Eugene,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Our technical inquiry record doesn’t show if Eugene has contacted us about this C2550D4I.
Dead as in No Power or No POST? There is a significant difference between these two behaviors.
POST code can only come from a POST debug digital display. As you may have noticed, such digital display is not integrated onto this board.
Flashing green LED; as printed on the board “BMC LED 1”, indicates BMC is active thus IPMI communication is ready.
Did you access the management web UI to check on the PSU status?
The C2550D4I is a SoC, the only foreign parts needed to at least get POST are PSU and memory. And it would have been more helpful if you mind to disclose the information of your PSU and memory product.
We do see many returns from Newegg which are later found to be in perfect condition

If you have any technical inquiry, please contact me with detail problem description at william@asrockamerica.com

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: Feature-packed motherboard. With 12 SATA ports and 4 RAM slots, there's a lot of room to grow. I'm using this in a NAS and it seems perfectly designed for this use.

Cons: There are 3 different SATA3 controllers on the board, and each has its own quirks. Of the SATA3 ports, only the two Intel ports worked perfectly and were hot-swappable out of the box. I had to install a SATA controller firmware update (from ASRock Rack's website) and that got two of the Marvell SATA3 ports working and hot-swappable. The remaining 4 Marvell SATA3 ports work, but are not hot-swappable; the drives are only recognized after a reboot. Additionally, the various controllers list their drives in different ways in the BIOS, and that's a little confusing.

I haven't used any of the SATA2 ports.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm satisfied with this motherboard. I docked one star for one of the SATA3 controllers need a firmware update out of the box, as well as for the one SATA3 controller not supporting hot-swap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little FreeNAS MoBo!

Pros: Favorite thing at the moment is having the IPMI remote web admin interface. Server lives in basement & I work up on main floor of house. Love not having to be up & down stairs multiple times to make adjustments that need the console. Or even just to cycle power. Every thing else is good so far as well, would not mind a little faster boot. The dual LAN makes it a good candidate for teaming the ports. Also would be a good fit for a pfSense FW as it works just fine with FreeBSD based FreeNAS 9.3. Like the large RAM capacity as well. If anything changes for the worse I will repost.

Cons: No real cons that I have encountered so far.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Tons of SATA, low power consumption, pretty cheap for a server setup - considering what you'd ordinarily pay for a server mobo + CPU.

Cons: The IPMI does not work well at all - it uses a Java applet, and the pages use bunk certificates. I had to figure out how to manually install a certificate in Chrome just to make it usable. Partly this is from Chrome being paranoid, but the thing is really a nightmare to use.

Other Thoughts: People hate, but I think this thing is amazing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

Thank you for purchase and review.
For the IPMI, the latest BMC firmware already has the signed Java certificate that most browsers accept.
But if you are prompted to accept installing a small Java applet, you need to accept it every time you launch the Console Redirection as each token is unique.
Please also keep your Java application up-to-date.

If you have any technical inquiry, please contact us with detail problem description at william@asrockamerica.com
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE this board!!!

Pros: IPMI rocks. Works extremely well with 6 drives running FreeNAS. Fast, silent, and low power.

Cons: High cost

Other Thoughts: I'd be willing to bet that most reporting problems are not using ECC unbuffered memory. This is a server board. You can't just throw any old ram in this thing.
