Good low power motherboard
This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCV-Q-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard Socket G2 Intel QM67 DDR3 1333 SODIMM
Pros: An actual server board with all of the remote management tools you could want with Intel Management Engine and remote console options. Sata was sufficient and raid was easy enough to configure. Has an internal USB header for a USB flash drive which is good for applications where you can boot from that.
Cons: No eSata ports. Sometimes loses the USB mouse requiring a quick disconnect and reconnect for some reason but that might just be my setup for some reason. No mSata port.
Other Thoughts: There really aren't many options for a socket G2 motherboard here but this one did the job. Used in mini-itx case with 4 3TB "green" drives, an i5-2520M cpu, 8 GB of memory, and Windows Home Server 2011. System doesn't even get over 65W or so even when stress testing. This motherboard only need 24 pin power with no 4 pin required.
