5 out of 5 eggsThe best budget home server board

Pros: I initially purchased the X10SAE because it has more native SATA ports. That board has more issues than I was willing to deal with so I went with this X10SL7-F.
They are completely different motherboards. This one booted into FreeNAS without any problems, I got everything set up and working very quickly.
The LSI controller works like a charm in IT mode on FreeNAS, that was the only advanced thing I had to do in order to have a good setup, and went without problems.

The board is very well behaved in FreeNAS. USB works without warnings or errors or timeouts (unlike a certain X10SAE), no crazy interrupt storms (again... SAE). There is no unneeded hardware on the board and you get a dedicated IPMI port.

Overall I am very happy with this choice. For the money, there are a lot of server features that you can not get from other "server" boards (really workstation boards..)

Cons: I haven't had any problems with this board at all. It's all business, no nonsense and has been running 24x7 since the OS install was done.

Other Thoughts: You may want to make sure that the Watchdog is disabled in BIOS, and perhaps also set the board jumper for Watchdog to "NMI" instead of "Reset". Some OS can not handle the watchdog properly and in the default config, your board will issue a hardware reset every 5 minutes. It can be very irritating until you figure that out.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat NAS Board

Pros: Everything you need for a NAS and nothing you don't.
IPMI to run headless.
Integrated LSI 2308 6GBps 8 port Controller
4 SATA 2, 2 SATA3, 1 DOM power connector
2 Intel 1GBps NIC, IPMI NIC
Extra PCIe 8x slots for HBAs
Haswell Support for current v3 Xenons or Core i3s
ECC memory up to 32GB

Connect CPU cooler to FAN-1, FAN-A is for case fans. Get large PWM fans with 800rpm minimum speed for PWM control to keep disks cool.

Cons: A little tricky to get the thermal design right in a desktop mid tower case. This motherboard is meant to be used in a rack able case with high rpm fans. If you don't want to cook your disks buy Deltas or Industrial high rpm Noctuas

Other Thoughts: If you planning on running less than 8 disks save some money and get the X10SLL or SLM instead

5 out of 5 eggsYes. VSAN

Pros: I am running four of these boards in 514 short depth 1u chassis. Four Intel Xeon E3-1230V3, with 16GB+ Crucial CT2KIT102472BD160B per host. They are a lab VSAN cluster. The LSI2308 SAS chip is HCL certified, simply goes in IT mode (use usb stick+efi). Runs great using HDPLEX 160W DC-ATX Power Supply, HDPLEX Internal 120W AC-DC adapter for each 1u Host. Supplies plenty/stable power, foreach running: Dual Gb-NIC, One Samsung 850pro (esxi/host-cache), One Intel DC S3700 Ent SSD, and 2x 3.5 Sam E.3 SAS/1TB/72k. North bridge heatsinks swapped with Enzotech BGA. Fully VSAN HCL and performs!

Cons: 24/7 99% cpu/load, and on all four hosts has not been verified. The Supermicro 1.42 IPMI firmware does bug out on graphical shell booted from any esxi boot volume (graphical corruption). So if you want a usable interface over iKVM/iPMI boot from non efi.

Other Thoughts: After each ESXi install go ahead an update to the latest LSI 9207 firmware using Vmware VIB LSI package/software. If you in IT mode (passthrough) keep it clean remove any boot roms, you don't need. Supermicro's IPMI is also unlockable allowing you to CLI bios changes, exports, imports, updates, etc. Without the SUM tool, the $20 unlock only provides the ability to flash the motherboard bios via the IPMI web interface. Go pro and link you motherboards bios to a git repo and subversion and script scheduled updates and upgrades. Granted the boards on my cluster has APC, PDU, and console servers on an OOB. |;)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard if you're looking for loads of SATA ports.

Pros: Plenty of Sata ports and built in SAS raid via LSI 2308.

Cons: Version 19 of the Raid Controller will not detect Sata drives, had to use version 16.

Other Thoughts: Got this model with intention of using it as a FreeNAS machine.
Used the following hardware:
Intel Xeon E3-1231V3 Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 80W
2 x Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
SUPERMICRO CSE-825TQ-R700LPB Black 2U Rackmount Server Case

Motherboard detected all 32GB of ram.
I flashed the raid to be used in IT mode. The newest version did not work, drives where not being detected.
Flashed with version 16 and it worked. All SATA drives connected via the SAS connectors on the motherboard are detected.
Currently testing with random 250GB drives, will upgrade to 4TB drives once I feel like spending the extra cash.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat all-in-one board

Pros: IPMI - I will never buy another server motherboard without it
14 SATA ports
2 LAN ports
Integrated 8 port RAID
Firmware was up to date
Excellent quality
Save a tree - manual is downloadable

Cons: Documentation harder to find
USB 3.0 ports don't work in FreeNAS or SmartOS
Fan control must be done manually

Other Thoughts: Took Mynorx's advice. CT2KIT102472BD160B works without issue
This board came with an updated firmware. I was able to use an e3-1231v3 and a g3220 without issue.
Supermicro has the IT firmware for the LSI 2308 chipset. Flashed the LSI 2308 to IT mode without issue.
I am able to see SMART info on drives connected to the LSI 2308 in FreeNAS and Linux. I can not see SMART info in SmartOS. I think this is Smartmon/Illumos issue.
With moderate testing, the board works with ESXi, FreeNAS, SmartOS, and Linux (Knoppix, Centos, Ubuntu)
A reviewer mentioned that there is no information on which fan header to plug your CPU fan into. This information is stamped on the board. This is also depicted in the manual.

My next board will Supermicro

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with freenas

Pros: Nice quality and build, strong features for the money. It works well with freenas, the internal usb header is a nice addition.

Cons: lacks manual and documentation, you have to hunt it down.

Other Thoughts: This memory kit is 100% compatible
CT2KIT102472BD160B, use this combo for freenas.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo for NAS

Pros: Integrated LSI SAS controller.

Cons: Just one external USB 3.0 port.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with the board; everything has worked as expected, no issues. I run ESX on it with FreeBSD as a VM and passthrough the SAS controller to FreeBSD. Works great. SuperMicro provides IT mode firmware for the SAS controller. It really is the perfect board for a NAS server.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns perfect for FreeNAS build

Pros: have had this board for a few months now, runs perfectly for a FreeNAS build. tons of sata/sas ports. 12 drive array (2 x RAIDZ2) 800MB/s writes and 1.2GB/s reads. LSI controller only adds a few watts compared to my old Areca card.

Cons: Not much in the way of fan control for a desktop setup. It would have been nice if they had provided a rackmount and desktop mode you could switch between. It's profile is set for smaller very high speed fans used in rackmount cases so it doesn't really spin down lower RPM desktop fans. Luckily the fans I used included adapters for fan speed so it was able to set them at a level that didn't produce so much noise.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend for a FreeNAS build.
