5 out of 5 eggsGreat pfSense board

Pros: This board worked right out of the box. The IPMI interface and terminal allowed me to mount an ISO on a network share as a virtual usb drive, so I didn't have to create any media.

Cons: The IMPI interface causes Java signed certificate errors, I pretty much had to disable all security in Java for it to run.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this with a supermicro enclosure (CSE-510-200B) but the fan power cables wouldn't reach across to the headers on the motherboard. Had to buy an extension (GELID Solutions CA-PWM) for it to work. After that, it worked great.

Also - I used GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBSQ memory - no issues with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small SOHO sever that can accomplish a lot of roles....if you do not expect too much from a MB/CPU at around 225$. Recommended for firewall or small file/NAS server.

Cons: 4GB is not enough.....

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the price

Pros: low power, because of Atom CPU

Cons: IPMI is flacky. It had kernel panic after upgrading the ubuntu distribution. I had to go back to older kernel version to work through. Not to mention LO activity on a new install. LO interface had so much activity.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat motherboard, better then getting bare bone system

Pros: great features, in particular full featured IPMI providing remote keyboard / video and full power control via a web browser.

Cons: don't forget to secure IPMI with a good password.

Other Thoughts: get this motherboard, together with a SUPERMICRO CSE-510-200B case, instead of the similar barebones. This motherboard is superior compared to the bare bone sold from super micro. But don't forget to get a Y cable as an extension and to connect both case fans. The cables that come with the case are too short.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a champ

Pros: As indicated by all other reviews, this thing just rocks. IPMI, Dual intel gig, 6 sata, runs cool.

Cons: With my setup the fan header locations were a problem. Between the rackmount chasis and the headers, my cables didn't reach. I was planning on using a Y cable for the two front fans, so with the y, it worked. Without it though, I would need extension cables for the fans to reach the header. This really isnt a con, since it's more of an issue with the case, but if they put the headers closer to the front, that would have been more useful to me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WHS mobo

Pros: -Silent
-IPMI
-Good Performance for what it does

I purchased this system for home NAS work, initially with unRaid, but then went with WHS 2011 with RAID.

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: I have two Intel atom boards also, one of which this one replaced. It is pricier, but worth the extra money.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat NAS mobo

Pros: This board makes for a great FREENAS build. Dual Gig LAN, and the onboard IPMI for server management is a plus. The internal USB is perfect for installing my micro USB with the embedded OS. 6 SATA provide for LOTS of storage capacity.

Cons: very minor point that the SATA ports are not well labeled on the board (very tight layout) but even the diagrams in the included documentation do not tell you which SATA port is 0 - 5.

Other Thoughts: More detailed documentation on the SATA port numbering, and the use of the DOM port would have been nice.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little Atom MB

Pros: ITX board with IPMI remote KVM abilities (LOVE THIS).
Supports 8GB Ram (despite what website says).
6 SATA connectors (makes for a great NAS system with the Q25 from Lian-li)

Cons: IPMI would only work in view only mode (no keyboard). Re-flashed the IPMI bios (separate from MB bios) with the same (latest) version 2.55 and now it works. Took several painfull hours to figure this out (because thought, why flash to same version. Glad I tried that before RMA'ing it).
Atom - slow - but I kindof knew that going into an Atom board purchase.

Other Thoughts: Would have likely gotten 5 eggs if not for the IPMI issue.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: - IPMI
- IPMI
- Yes, I love IPMI. It's great that I have not had the need to hook up a monitor/ keyboard - at all.
- Dual Intel Gigabit. I think this goes without saying.
- 8GB RAM. Yes. I know. I was skeptical too. All I can say is: it works.
- Rock solid stability. I've been running this board for a while, and I have not had a single lockup.
- Excellent FreeBSD compatibility, everything works out of the box!
- Fanless -> Nice and quiet.
- 6 SATA ports.
- Lack of fluff.
- USB DOM

Cons: I can list the regular things here like: price, it doesn't have more SATA connections, etc etc. But really, this is the best board out there, and there will always be something to complain about. I'm very happy with this board.

Other Thoughts: This board is great. It's got everything I want. If it keeps trucking like it has been, I will be a very happy owner for a while!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent enterprise quality motherboard

Pros: I've had this board for about 5 months now, and I have to say I'm very impressed. I've had the intel brand atom processor boards, and they were flakey. This is solid and reliable. I've had my centos nas/pbx/backup server on it using all sata ports, and an expansion sas card. The IPMI is equal or better than iLO or Drac. It's worth the extra cost, believe me. I can do x264 decryption through PS3media server even. More than enough processing power to handle even a bulky java based UPNP server.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I would reccomend a case with good airflow, as the CPU has a big heatsink, but unless you have some air pulling across it, it could get hot, lowering long term lifespan. It's enterprise quality, but heat is heat, get some air moving across it. My intel board based atom in a microatx case got flakey after being too hot for too long. You can't get away from good maintenace habits.
