5 out of 5 eggsKingston memory that works but not listed

Pros: Small and appropriate for file server.
I have this as part of ASRock's 1U server with 12 data HDDs. FreeBSD, with LSI HBA with 2 SAS (SFF-8087). 12 data drives (4 from intel controller +8 from LSI), 1 zfs cache(from intel controller), and 1 for root system (from intel controller).

Cons: 1) Marvell controller (8 drives) has not-as-good support in linux/BSD, but this is not ASRock's fault.

2) I'd love to have a jumper that disables BMC at low level.

Other Thoughts: Here is a memory that works with the board, but is not listed on the site:
Kingston 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333 Server Memory Model KVR1333D3E9SK2/16G

1 out of 5 eggsNot impressed at all

Pros: Low Power comsumtion small form factor
loads of sata ports and up to 64gig ram
Ecc Suppport

Cons: Extremly unstable overheats like crazy they shoud have included a small fan
No Raid options other than 0 and 1
useless for data center home server applications

Other Thoughts: If you are not concerned about the data integrity and or you have other backup optoins this is a good choose for you with tons of sata ports and memory support. i am using it as a test web server i would have liked some raid option provided it has 12 sata cables so most likely people are going to be using it in home or small business environment.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Depending on the number of storage medias in the configuration and their I/O load, case fans should be added accordingly based on the operating temperature.
The onboard Marvell SE9230 is capable of RAID 10 configuration when there are 4 HDDs connected.
Same board is also equipped in our 1U12LX-C2750 which is ideal for cold storage and data center application at link below.

3 out of 5 eggsInteresting board

Pros: Sturdy high quality board. Booted up nearly immediately and accepted the Crucial ECC unbuffered ram that I had happened to have laying around.

Cons: Worked great in every aspect until I installed BMC update 00.17.00 and lost all BMC network connectivity. A big selling point for this motherboard/processor combo was the IPMI. I hope there's something ASRock can do about my situation and have already opened a ticket with them. Until I can have this issue resolved it'll have to be 3 eggs at best.

3 out of 5 eggsWorst IPMI Web Interface Ever

Pros: Low power
Lots of SATA ports
8x PCIe port for expansion

Cons: No USB3
Additional onboard SATA controllers have issues
IPMI web interface is useless

Other Thoughts: As long as you can set it up and leave it running, it works fine for quite a while. If it's headless and you need to work on it though, the IP KVM is impossible to get working.

I'm thinking I should have gotten the SuperMicro version.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Unfortunately, mainbaord does not came with USB 3.0.
For more information, please visit specification link at " http://www.asrockrack.com/general/productdetail.asp?Model=C2750D4I# "

BMC iKVM relies on Java and security clearance in order to run properly. Often time a few security popup windows from browser and Java need to be eased to grant iKVM to launch. In some cases, anti-virus also needs to be configured. Updating BMC firmware version can also renew the certificate.

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

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Mini-ITX server grade motherboard with IPMI, 8 physical cores, 32 gigs of memory (in practice), and very low power consumption (22 Watts!!).

Cons: The board requires an active cooling solution, not just on the CPU but on the chipset as well. Otherwise, instabilities may occur. Do NOT be fooled by the small passively cooled heat-sink on this board. It will run hot!

Other Thoughts: I posted a review on here earlier complaining about stability problems. William from Asrock America contacted me and offered me (and I say this with over 2 decades of system builder experience) the best consumer technical support I've seen from a company. He worked with me for almost a month tracking down the issues I was having, experimenting with new bios and firmware versions, and ultimately replacing the board. Even after replacing the board, he kept me up to date on the problems discovered. While I was a bit disgusted with this motherboard initially, this sort of customer service has totally sold me on the company. PLUS! We solved the stability issues I was having.

I can confidently saying I've been running this board and pushing it pretty hard for a while now with 0 problems. I'm actually planning to purchase another. While I still wish this board came with a better heat-sink, I can work around that with a good case.

I mentioned in my previous review that if the problems on my board were resolved, I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars. I'm giving this 5 out of 5 because of the superb customer service experience I had.

4 out of 5 eggsMy experience thus far

Pros: Perfect home server board. I'm using this for a home NAS running FreeNAS 9.2. SATA ports for days, and the fanless heatsink is a plus in my books.

Board stays pretty cool even in a tight case like the Fractal Design Node 304 with the CPU and motherboard temps staying right around 48 Celcius.

Low power usage is great.

IPMI is much more useful than I originally anticipated, and is a feature that makes the server unbelievably easy to use. Very easy to configure and the web GUI is very user friendly.

Cons: The board is quite pricey, but you really do get what you pay for.

Boot times are quite slow, but I don't really know if I'd consider that a con on a server board that's on 24/7.

It is next to impossible to find officially supported memory for this board here in Canada, so you do end up having to buy non-officially supported RAM.

Other Thoughts: I got the board to boot using KVR1333D3E9S/8G memory purchase here on newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsFreeNAS Setup

Pros: Works with FreeNAS with no extra tinkering

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Has been running solidly for about 4 months now. Using 6 WD Red 2TB drives. Board stays cool and have had zero problems with my setup.

5 out of 5 eggsNice ESX server

Pros: This is a great VMware server. I have ESX 5.5 running on this for over a week now. I've built a over a dozen VMs on this now an they all run at the same time. The CPU is barely breaking a sweat!

I needed a small VMware environment to build out Commvault servers and media agents to run some simple demos. I have a couple of windows and Linux servers running as well as some MS-SQL and oracle servers.

I'll be adding reporting and indexing servers on this esx server next. The server should easily handle this.

The last piece I will add to this little environment is deduplication. I have a solid state drive on order for this.

I am really impressed by the performance of this little board. It is definitely worth the price.

One other thing to mention is the low power draw. I work this board hard and It's only drawing 25 watts. That is just incredible!

Cons: 16MB memory is a little hard to come by. I went with 4 x 8GB dimms.

Other Thoughts: I initially bought the wrong memory (buffered) and the board would not post. I worked with William from ASROCK support and he helped me find the proper memory. Be careful what you order. Check the hardware matrix at ASROCK!

2 out of 5 eggsLots of stability issues

Pros: It's a very low power 8-core board with support for ECC memory and has IPMI.

My system currently consumes about 24W.

Cons: Stability issues galore.
I've been very disappointed with this board. For starters, it absolutely requires active cooling. The passive heatsink is not capable of keeping the CPU. I originally wanted to use this board in a m350 mini-itx case, but could not due to the poor cooling.

My second issue is that this board is extremely unstable in Linux environments, despite the manufacture claiming to support Linux. The Intel nic will frequently perform resets which will result in hanging the system. If you search online there are reports talking about disabling c-states, speedstep, acpi, etc. But none of them are guaranteed to work. I've tried multiple versions of Ubuntu and CentOS with 3 different versions of the Intel nic driver and it was still unstable. I'm now convinced the problem is with the BMC sharing a port with the Intel nic.

Other reviews have discussed problems with the SATA controller and Linux but this did not affect me as I was not building a NAS.

Other Thoughts: The NIC issue on this board has rendered the system almost completely useless for me as it makes the server completely unreliable. I may test purchasing an additional nic and see how that works but I've become quite bitter with this system as I've spent too much money already.

While the board states it can support 64-bits of unbuffered ECC memory, 16 gig UDIMMS are extremely rare and expensive. More practically you'll be using 32-gigs of ECC memory (4x8).

If Intel or Asrock has a firmware/bmc/driver update that solves my NIC issue, I would update my rating to 4/5.
