GIGABYTE GA-C1007UN-D Intel Celeron 1007U Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • DDR3 1333/1066
  • Supported only by CPU with integrated graphic

Pros:

1. Dual NICs
2. Dual Core Ivy Bridge with 17Watt TDP
3. Easy to work with BIOS
4. Very Quiet

Cons:

1. PCI instead of PCIe expansion
2. No USB3
3. NICs are Realtek
4. Only 2 fan headers (CPU/System)
5. Only 1 6Gbps SATA
6. Not the prettiest board (if you are into that)

Other Thoughts:

I'm currently using this board in my pfsense build. I'm using an old Antec ISK-110 Mini ITX case with a built in 90Watt Power Supply I had laying around, along with 8GB Memory and a 320GB 7200 RPM HDD. This board runs quiet and cool.

I'm currently running pfsense 2.1 RC0 since I heard 2.0 doesn't recognize the NICs (I didn't verify that). I got this since any consumer grade firewall can't push more than a few mbit/s using OpenVPN/IPSec. I ran a test where I was downloading at 32mbit/s and concurrently uploading 5mbit/s and my load average was between .20 and .32. OpenVPN was utilizing 20-22% CPU while the two NICs were using 4.5% each. Keep in mind this is out of a CPU max load of 2/200% since this is a dual core system, and you can see that this CPU can probably push between 200-300mbit/s with OpenVPN encryption. I suspect that IPSec will be less and PPTP will be more.

Other than that, this board is really vanilla. No USB3 and PCIe will turn away some, but for what I want this is pretty much perfect (although built in Intel NICs would have been preferred) . The BIOS was super easy to navigate, and I booted off a USB stick without even having to drop to a boot menu.
