5 out of 5 eggspfSense

Pros: I needed a low power machine to run my pfSense firewall and this board does the trick. I think I was running around 40 watts (almost half used by the hard drive ) vs the 170+ watts with my old AMD board. The built in network is compatible with my pfSense 2.2+

Cons: Stopped working after 5 months but I feel it was due to my old power supply. Buying a new board now with a power supply I didn't pull from my old computer parts heap in the corner of my basement.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's just a baby, but baby got wings!

Pros: Silent and cool operation from a quad core.
Low price for motherboard/processor combo.
PCI-Express capabilities.
Dual-Channel Ram.
Low-power consumption.

Cons: PCI-Express 16x slot is 2.0 and really 1x.
Only 2 Sata ports.
Ram surrounds CPU cooler, cutting some airflow to it.

Other Thoughts: So really, I wanted to do this review to see if this board would be worth having a video card in it for gaming. I did 3D mark with the onboard Intel HD graphics and one with an AMD 7750 (no external power and low profile). The power consumption went from ~30w to ~70w peak during this test in my rig.

Test - Onboard Score - +7750 score
Firestrike 1.1 - 171 - 1905
Skydiver 1.0 - 600 - 5610
Cloudgate 1.1 - 1604 - 5709
Ice Storm 1.2 - 18985 - 37482

The physics score was rather uneffected, but the graphics scores went up considerably. Skydiver went from a slideshow to a near-smooth experience. Firestrike, however, was still pretty rough. Reglardless, even with only 1x operation, it seems a video card is worth it if you want to attempt to game from the awesome little J1900, as it struggles with video performance.

I'm using a Silverstone ML04 (with 4x Enermax Enobal fans turned down), older Sandisk SSD, Older OCZ Power Supply, Pioneer Blu-ray player, and some cheap Nanya 667mhz ram I had laying around. Idle takes less than 20 watts and, outside of the power supply fan, it's dead silent. Going to use this for a HTPC, but figured I'd experiment as a gaming computer as I've used the J1900 in the Gigabyte Brix for Steam Streaming. Saw the J1900 in that was getting bottle-necked by the processors poor video performance in local gaming, so figured it was worth a quick test on this board to see how well a vid card would help. Won't be keeping the video card in this box as the J1900 can stream just fine, but hopefully this little review helps somebody.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard/CPU for Everything But Gaming

Pros: 10w processor.
Micro Atx with plenty of expansion options.
Takes standard DDR3 sized memory (not compact laptop).
Plays 1080 and 720 very smoothly.
Very quick boot.
Takes +2tb drives out of the box.
Nice UEFI.

Cons: Only 2 Sata ports, but plenty of expansion bays for other options.

Other Thoughts: Currently using as Media server/htpc and crunching with Boinc. Never bogs down and stays around the 25-30w range.
Paired with 1600 DDR3 ripjaw memory and a WD 6TB drive with a 128gig ocz SSD for boot.
Use onboard graphics and do not see a need to upgrade it since the processor would bottle neck higher end GPUs.
It is amazing that this is like 4 pentium 4 chips crammed into one 10w package. Great for everyday computing needs and even Green crunching.

5 out of 5 eggsAsrock Q1900M pfSense Firewall

Pros: pfSense v2.2.1 64bit (amd64) Bios 1.50
pfBlockerNG (120600 Deny Rules)
Snort IPS
StarTech ST10000SPEXD3 Dual GiG Ethernet PCIe card (this enables one each LAN, WAN and DMZ VLANs).
8gb of GSkill F3-1333C9S-4GIS RAM.
120gb Kingston SSD.
Cooler Master Silencio 352 case (added lower 120cm fan to front and removed internal 3 1/2 drive bay). Ability to clean the filters is a plus.
Corsair CX430M power supply.
Very Fast low cost stateful firewall/VPN.
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU J1900 @ 1.99GHz
Current: 1992 MHz, Max: 1993 MHz
4 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 4 core(s).
Moved from a standard SATA to the SSD and really see the speed increase. With 8gb RAM rarely touches disk.
So far it looks real good and am happy with the ROI.
Time will tell on duration.

Cons: The Asrock RAM long DIMM slots slightly block the airflow over the passive CPU cooling fins. Temp indicator shows a constant 26.8C (about 80F). The Silencio case with extra front 120cm fan may mitigate any blockage.
The Asrock Q1900M would not fit into a Cooler Master elite 130 stackable case since it is a Micro ATX board. Had to move to a larger enclosure.

Other Thoughts: Unknown power reduction benefits of the embedded Quad CPU

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Low Power Board

Pros: Low Power 15W measured at wall not bad.
Quad core.
Fanless.
Runs very Cool 35C was max temperature under full load.
For Linux users make sure you run latest kernel/Mesa for best support (3.19.3 as of writing)
Fast shipping great job to newegg as always.
Dual Channel Memory support (Standard Dimm)
Excellent quality components.
Low Cost Build.

Cons: Attached a 530 series Intel SSD. It would recognize SSD then drop out when in UEFI mode. I upgraded uefi bios to 1.50 and problem still persisted. I installed another new 530 SSD and same problem. Swapped Sata cables to rule them out and did not fix. Both SSD's were brand new. I installed a new regular drive and all went well. . ASRock should investigate this, as this killed my ultra quiet server plans. -1 Egg

Other Thoughts: SSD's were verified good when installed into another motherboard (ASUS Mark 1). Was hoping to utilize SSD for a low power fast fileserver. Other than that all went well. For a Bay Trail platform this system actually runs great, and the price was cheap. Too bad this board didn't support ECC but that was expected for the platform. Runs Windows 8.1 and Manjaro Linux pretty well. Was a little disappointed over the SSD issue.

1 out of 5 eggsdead on arrival,open box

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Appeared the box was opened before, placed it into a working setup and nothing. The board gets warm indicating its fried. Should have better quality control. Was going to do a RMA, but $12.00 just to ship back, I can purchase the ADH warranty for $7.00, which includes shipping. I wonder whats better. I shouldn't have to pay for poor product control.

2 out of 5 eggsSpecs nice but doesn't work

Pros: Looks good on paper

Cons: After troubleshooting and verifying with different power supplies and slaving the SSD I bought for this system into my main computer I come to the conclusion this board is BAD. The SSD does not show up in my bios and the SATA in the bios is 2.1 not sata 3 as advertised. The drive is a sata 3 drive.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: **PRO**
1. Fanless heatsink
2. Quad core
3. Low power consumption
4. Use of regular DIMMs
5. Supports up to 16GB RAM, I used DDR3/1600 Crucial
6. Low price after rebate (46 bucks)
7. Makes for a great server, or HTPC.

Cons: **CONS**
1. Only 2 SATA ports
2. SATA 3G ports
3. Difficulty installing OS from a USB drive.
4. Forced to use DVDROM connected via USB or SATA.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great value for an All-in-One solution. I was able to install Windows 7, 8 and Server 2008R2 and 2012R2. However, the board was having issues with installing it from a USB stick. I tried many different sticks and two different USB installers for the same ISO. One solutions that I found was to hook up a DVDROM via the SATA port to install the OS. Additionally, I was able to also install a Windows OS via USB DVD drive. The lack of onboard SATA ports is one thing I definitely dislike about the mobo. I can live without it being SATA 6G. I am currently using the board as a test 2012R2 server and it performs admirably. The J1900 Celeron Quad core and 16GB RAM feature really helps when using it for Hyper-V use. However, IMO, the 2.0GHz speed is not as fast as I would prefer despite the OS running on a WD 500GB Black hard drive. It's a trade off that I'm willing to endure to save power and for server use. Once I'm done playing with it as a server, I'm going to pair it with a SSD and see how the perceived "speed" will be on an everyday PC.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value For the Money!

Pros: Small
No CPU fan to Mess with
Nice-looking BIOS
no-problem Install & setup
Plenty of video outputs to choose from

Cons: Only 2 SATA ports
Could use more USB headers on the board

Other Thoughts: I bought this board to replace the AMD, socket FM1 A4 3400 APU & board that I had in my Hyperspin cabinet(was rebooting at odd times and generally acting "weird"). So far no problems at all running any MAME games that I've thrown at it(only gone up to as new as some decent fighting games from the 90's so far). It's sure a LOT better & more stable than the AMD combo I had in there before! It seems to run cool enough locked in my vinatge Pyros cabinet with the "case fan" i put in the cabinet door set at a speed of '4' in the MB bios. The only problem I've had so far is getting Acronis True Image to boot up & see a USB stick at the same time & the lack of more SATA ports. Other than this, setup and installation went flawlessly. I also like the graphical bios that it has. I my opinion you can't beat the value of this quad core board for what you get(I got it for 46 dollars after rebate). My board shipped with a bios revision of 1.40, but I used the "instant flash" utility to easily update, via USB stick, to the latest revision of 1.50. I wish I would have gone with this board as my 1st choice for the Hyperspin cabinet....would have saved a LOT of hassle!
