5 out of 5 eggsNice solid board, great special purpose rig

Pros: PRO: Supermicro. I'm a fan - enterprise grade equipment for sure.
Solid board, dual intel NICs, Wake on Lan options etc. SODIMM and microATX fits great in a microPC case. Great for special purpose build (mini NAS, router / firewall, low priority file server, etc.) Multiple well located SATA ports. Internal USB port for booting from USB stick inside the case is a really nice touch - makes this a no-brainer Linux machine for all sorts of USB booting use cases. Also you have a silent option which is nice in home applications. Also, with the micro PSU I'm using it's only drawing 28 watts so that's respectable tradeoff for the performance boost you'll get vs. a boxed router. And of course it's easily re-purposable as any sort of linux box, backup desktop PC, etc.

Cons: I wouldn't run a primary OS on it (IE Windows) other than Linux or maybe the scaled down Win10 option since it is just an Atom CPU -- unless you are not planning to push your system. That said, would be fine for routine officeworker, etc. for just browsing and managing files, running office, etc. I did not stress the GPU so no comment there. As a NAS, you're not going to be able to expect max SATA hard drive transfer speeds with an ATOM, but it is still pretty solid. But then for the price, there are better options for you in that scenario - this is after all more enterprise grade hardware and priced accordingly.

Other Thoughts: After experimenting, this board turns out to be great as a home (or Small Biz) Router/Firewall. I'm using the free version of Untangle (router/firewall software), which is really nice and simple, gives you OpenVPN, basic intrusion protection and real nice control over the connected devices, port control, etc. And if you simply purchase the extra features (no further install required), it would easily fit the needs of a small enterprise system. Meanwhile, since it's overkill CPU wise, I'm of course getting really good speeds on the broadband internet and gigabit LAN (Intel NIC's) - both noticeably better versus even nice quality retail home routers (there's no beating intel embedded NICs). I have a great microATX case that is just big enough to cover this and nano power supply that fits this MB perfectly (not much bigger than a NUK but much cheaper), and so I've concluded that would probably be the best use case for this MB, and would be so easy to replicate this setup and have a quick and bulletproof small business multi-location option without breaking the bank with using one of the big brands' enterprise firewalls, etc. if you have competent IT guys to properly configure your router and sensibly use them. If you're using it as an appliance of that ilk, any old laptop HD is fine for home use or of course a tiny SSD drive if enterprise grade use case is now quite affordable as well. This is a piece I'd not be surprised to see have a 10 year lifespan in such an application. By then every device will have 10gigabit broadband from some wireless carrier and all our network security will come via cloud provider and we'll wonder what the heck these home routers and firewalls were for anyway.....

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little board

Pros: > Small form factor
> Dual Gig-E
> 6 Onboard SATA
> Uses DDR2 SO-DIMMs

Cons: > Molex MB Power - I question the reasoning behind using this. Couldn't they just stick with a 'normal' P4? No big deal really, just kind of stretching to think of any cons.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these in nearly the same configuration for my home server set up - no RAID involved. They haven't missed a beat in the half-year or so of constant up time.

Originally I had some loose DDR2 memory lying around I didn't know what to do with (left over from upgrading laptop memory.) Decided to retire the old 939 board that was serving (heh) as my server for a more energy efficient setup.

Ubuntu Server 12.04
Lighttpd stack

5 out of 5 eggsWill work with 8GB of RAM

Pros: 6x SATA ports, Will work with 8GB of RAM

Cons: Poor documentation

Other Thoughts: I bought this board almost 2 years ago to run FreeNAS 8. I'm running ZFS raidz2 with 5x 2TB disks and 1 spare, and until today 4GB of RAM. The system has been solid with NO problems. I have also been using a 160W PicoPSU with it since the beginning without any problems. I overlooked the documented 4GB of RAM, but saw other posts from people with the D525 variation were able to get 8GB to work, so I gave it a try even though this is the D510. I just got the 8GB of RAM today and it works perfectly so far. I got the G-Skill F2-5300CL5D-8GBSQ here at Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsNothing major to complain about

Pros: Board itself works great. Plenty speedy for what I use it for. No fans and lots of features for the size. Haven't used it, but the out-of-band management capability for the board was a nice surprise.

Cons: Doesn't come out of NIC sleep mode. I had to turn it off in the OS.

Other Thoughts: I used this to build three servers for a door monitoring system at work. All three work perfectly after turning off the powersave mode for the network card.

5 out of 5 eggsZippy

Pros: Reliable, works well

Cons: Riser cards for this unit in a Supermicro case not properly documented well

Other Thoughts: Got it running Debian with IPTABLES, Squid in transparent proxy mode, and SAMBA. It's faster at sharing files with SAMBA than full-on Xeon Dell servers running Windows 2008 SBS. I'm impressed.

This board in the associated 1u rack case with a couple mirrored 2.5" laptop hard drives running Debian/CentOS with SAMBA makes a nice inexpensive alternative to BOTH a firewall AND dedicated server in a small business environment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little motherboard

Pros: I bought this motherboard to create FreeNAS system and it has worked flawlessly for me. It runs cool, draws little power and has plenty of horsepower to run my server. So far, I am quite happy. I actually have two of these and they are both working great while on 24x7.

Cons: Only thing I can think of is the price. However, given I have had 0 issues and it has enough SATA ports to handle what I need (something the cheaper boards do not have), I guess you get what you pay for.

3 out of 5 eggsSome SATA ports detected as EXTERNAL

Pros: WOL from power off is really cool
6 internal SATA ports
Onboard molex power

Cons: 2 of the 6 internal SATA ports are detected as EXTERNAL by Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (Windows Home Server "Vail") and the Intel Raid software. Causing me RAID issues.

Other Thoughts: Built a RAID5 array using 3 SAMSUNG Spinpoint F4 HD204UI drives and the Intel firmware RAID. Works when the drives are connected to SATA ports 0-3, but if they are on ports 4 or 5 the array needs to be rebuilt on every reboot! SATA ports 5 & 5 are being detected by Windows and the Intel software as "EXTERNAL", and I think this is the cause. Tried some registry tricks to label them as INTERNAL but did not work. This it's an Intel driver issue. All latest updates installed (BIOS 1.1a and Intel Rapid Storage Technology v. but still happening. Could be the HDDs of course - they are not exactly industrial strength RAID drives - but since it works when they are all on "INTERNAL" SATA ports I am thinking that's not it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance, good all around board

Pros: I bought this board to build a RAID 5 file server. When I ordered it I also ordered a 4GB kit of the Mushkin RAM that was mentioned in another review as being compatible. The build went off without a hitch and worked perfect out of the box. I configured the RAID 5 array and then tried to install Windows 7.

Cons: The board only received 4 eggs because as I mentioned in the pros section I "TRIED" to install Windows 7. Win 7 gave me an error message to the effect of it wasn't able to be installed one that hardware. I also tried Server 2003 and server 2008 before going to Supermicro's website to try and figure out how to configure the hard driver controllers in BIOS. Long story short I finally had to settle for server 2008 and software RAID 5. It was a real pain in the backside but after figuring that problem out the rest of the process of installing server 2008 went smooth and flawless. The file server has been running perfectly for about a month now doing its job of supplying my appleTV with movies and TV shows.

Other Thoughts: I wish I could have found the board that had the D525 atom on it but in Windows this machine runs just as well as the ION2 with D525 that I used in my XBMC build. Overall great board though and as soon as i can find the D525 version of this board I'll most likely buy it, hopefully they will have fixed the RAID problem I had.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low-power solution

Pros: I've been using this in my FreeNAS box for almost 3 months and I have had no issues. Very energy efficient and capable SOHO server solution.

Cons: The SODIMMs aren't the easiest thing to install due to the mounting bracket position, but that was probably intentional to save space.

5 out of 5 eggsStable, easy setup

Pros: Dual gigabit ethernet
Low power consumption (23 w)
Easy to use bios
Passively Cooled

Cons: Wish it had a mini PCI slot

Other Thoughts: I'm using this for a NAS box - 14 TB. It's perfect. Worked with every OS I tried flawlessly - OpenFiler, Ubuntu, OpenSolaris, FreeNAS.

Very stable, 23W at idle, 25 under load. It's a great board.
