This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X7SPA-HF-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard DDR2 667
Pros: Completely silent. Low power usage. People complaining of CPU heat must keep in mind that this CPU is design to handle 100°C or 212°F.
I have it running pfSense 2.0.1 in a really, really small case that have a 60W DC-DC power supply, so not even a single fan and the CPU stay below 70°C.
Cons: I had trouble booting pfSense from the onboard USB, but that was pfSense fault, something about a delay before mounting the USB drive, the delay wait for the USB controller to initialize the drive.
Other Thoughts: Case : APEX MW-100
USB Flash : Patriot Xporter XT Rage 8GB
OS : pfSense 2.0.1
The case is really small, but it is perfect for what I did with it. The USB Flash drive fit perfectly inside, I was worried that it wouldn't fit at first, but it did. Don't expect to have a DVD drive with the flash drive though, you might need a smaller one.
