5 out of 5 eggsWorks quite well after some trail and error journey

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: I purchased this board to find out if my existing SAS controller ejected the disks.
After quite some trail and error, I found out that my 220Watt PSU was too small sized for the 8 HDD disk load.
A bigger power supply stabilized the ATA links and I was able to 1TB of data through it on the first day.
I also updated the firmware on the 2nd Marvell controller according the download I found at http://www.asrockrack.com/general/productdetail.asp?Model=C2750D4I#Download
All in all a major win for me, because:
Lots of SATA ports and 4 RAM slots.
CPU is more than fast enough with 8 visible cores
Supports ECC memory, quite important when running software RAID like ZFS.
I also would suggest you are not running ZFS with less than 16GB Ram, even ARC cache disabled

Cons: None really, other than few suggestions.
I probably would add heat sinks on the Marvell controllers when running in small cases.
Also the board should come with the latest Marvell firmware, bought in 2016 and it still had the old firmware installed from early 2015.

5 out of 5 eggsRev2 fixes stability issues

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: - Great for a low power server

Cons: - Wish it had 2 more LAN ports

Other Thoughts: Rev1 of this motherboard had some annoying stability issues. But happily these have all appeared to be resolved with Rev2 of the board, which newegg now stocks. I have been running the Rev2 now for 6+ months without a single crash/hang/incident.

The one thing I can't vouch for is the Marvel chipset, as I have only used the Intel SATA ports for my disks so far.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: 12 SATA ports. 12! Cannot beat this board for the price. I have an expansion card with 4 SATA ports as well bringing the total to 16. This platform handles it all with ease! Rock solid stable as well. Using Drivepool and no issues with that either.

Cons: Only issue I had was with the Marvell 9230 dropping drives quickly under load. I have this in a huge 4U rack case with 8 fans but after adding a little fan with a flexible arm that blows on the CPU heatsink and the Marvell controller I have not had a single issue with drives dropping. That is after almost a week solid of me hammering these drives.

Other Thoughts: As a side note, I contacted Asrock for help with something minor and William was awesome to work with. Thanks William!

5 out of 5 eggsIdeal Home Lab Server Board...

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: I am so pleased with this board! I have 5 of them:
* 1 running a Windows Server Essential 2012 R2 as Domain Controller / DNS / Backups for everything
* 3 "nodes"
* 1 running Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 with 4 4TB WD Red drives and 2 SSDs as write cache

I have run Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, 20012 R2, 2014, and 2016 CTP3 in standalone and failover cluster scenarios on the 3 nodes. I have also run Ubuntu Server 14.02 LTS running Apache Cassandra on these nodes.

Everything thing ran perfect, 1st time, no problems of any kind. Not a single hiccup. I was really torn between this and a Xeon 1200 V3 type system. I definitely made the irght choice with this board. Surprisingly snappy. Much better than Id hoped for!

Cons: Not a single one. Note I did NOT use ANY of the onboard hardware raid stuff at all.

Other Thoughts: At least for the purposes of a home learning lab, I highly recommend it! Having IPMI & real server class features like the 3 NICs, room for 64GB of RAM... very nice. FYI, if you are curious, it fit great in a Fractal Design Node 304 FD-CA-NODE-304-BL Black Aluminum / Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case. Just be careful about which power supply you get. MANY won't fit in that case. You need a really short one. I went with a Fractal Design Integra M 550W Modular 80 PLUS BRONZE and it worked out perfectly!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat on paper

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: Great product on paper. Good performance for its price point.

Cons: I specifically chose this board because of its high number of SATA ports as I was building a FreeNAS box. Unfortunately, I have found out (and this has been confirmed by numerous other FreeNAS users) that the Marvell SATA ports are defective-by-design. The disks that are connected to them show up only intermittently in EFI, let alone the OS, and these controllers are prone to data loss/corruption.

Other Thoughts: This board has an unusually long POST time during which nothing appears on screen (upwards of 3 minutes sometimes). I thought I may have a dud at first, but it turned out I just wasn't waiting long enough.

1 out of 5 eggsProblems with the board

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: Some information about the why's of the board.

I bought this board for a freenas build.

The board has 16 gig of ecc memory that's on their memory list.

freenas has been running now (and well) for about 2 months w/o an issue.

The other day - all nics went south - filed a ticket with ixsystems just to let them know.

Last night I figured why not re-install another os just to verify that the system is ok - bought a ssd drive and threw it in.

- the first time I turned the machine on - the sata cable actually shorted (started smoking) and may have fried the drive.

I'm rma'ing the board and when I get it back it will sit in the dust pile of never to be used equipment again.

it's really too bad it seems like it's such a good board.

Cons: - sata cables that short out.
- ipmi works most of the time but there are no status indicators.
- all ide channels now are non functional.

I have tried multiple drives in multiple ide channels - and changed the cable to non-supplied good known working cables. no drives are functional in the machine now.

Other Thoughts: I have had machines going back to the 80's.

I deal with hundreds of servers daily if I found a machine with electrical issues like this I would pull all of them.

3 out of 5 eggsDo I have a Bad Board??

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: high compute, low cost

Cons: SATA doesn't currently work for me

Other Thoughts: I'm struggling to get my system off the ground with the SATA2 ports. I keep getting disk disconnect issues. I'm a Redhat and VMware guy and I've tried multiple OS flavors and they all give me the same disconnect issues with my mechanical drives. My drive works like a champ when connected to other machines. My main goal is to use this machine for study and run VMs. I see most people are adding some LSI cards to get the disk density, but I need it for CPU cores and low power and wold prefer not to add a Sata controller.

To be clear I'm talking about just the intel SATA controller.

What software tweaks and firmware are people using?

I feel like I have a defective board, but I don't know the best way to prove it or who the RMA would be proceed by.

I have a case open with Asrock and I do see William from Asrock responding so hopefully he'll respond to me when he gets back from holiday. As of now, I'm wondering if I worried that I threw away ~$400

I've seen lots of posts of overheating causing issues, but I have a great space invader case that cools it quietly and well at 57 degrees.

3 out of 5 eggsStill Needs Improvement

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: Nice compact Design.

Cons: On board Video is not on by default! Memory is a big problem with memory, this board (it's real fussy).
The I.P.M.I. interface need major improvements.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: It's a good price for the amount of power this board can put out. I'm using this for a home\research virtual server and it does the job very well. It also works well for a FreeNAS setup. I recommend this board regularly to others trying to setup a home lab or NAS.

Cons: It can get a little hot and I don't really feel safe putting it into a shuttle case.
Very persnickety about RAM. Keep to what is supported, anything else and you're very likely to kernel panic.

5 out of 5 eggsA dream home server mobo

This review is from: ASRock C2750D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333

Pros: After running a home server on a low end AMD system for some time this board has shown me an amazing amount of features that can be crammed into a Mini-ITX board.
The Intel IPMI is wonderful. Earlier this year I went and recycled all of the old computer cables I had taking up space and when setting up this system there wasn't an RGA cable in sight. The IPMI worked great to install Debian and get things running!

Also a big shout out to William Lee from ASRock America, he helped me with so many questions even things that had next to nothing to do with the motherboard. Huge thanks!

Cons: More of a feature request; Wish the IPMI had fan speed control for the case fans.

Other Thoughts: Installed Debian 8 onto the system and everything has worked great, even stress tested it with huge file transfers while running CPU intensive operations and nothing failed.
