This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLL-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600
Pros: Freenas forums were not incorrect. This board has superior compatibility for VMs .. I had many esoteric operating systems running in no time and had no driver issues. It also came packaged with a signed checklist verifying the contents of the box. A+ Supermicro!
Cons: None really.. many people complain about the IPMI and BIOS needing a license key to update them. This is incorrect. If you go to the website you can download all available drivers and update them through the IPMI View software they provide. Same with the BIOS .. you just have to manually flash using a USB the "older" way. Luckily I bought this board in 2016 and it already had the latest firmware installed on it which was nice!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Needed more RAM for freenas (isn't that always the case?) this was the simple choice as I already had a 16GB kit I had purchased initially .. nice to see i can always count on crucial for compatibility !!

Pros: great case.. side panel is beautiful and everything on the inside is well laid out and painted nicely.. no missed spots. you can tell its a quality case when they paint spots that usually never see the light of day. it has plenty of room for cable management and everything looks nice and tidy. i was going to go with the 800D but my friend has one and they are HEAVY.. i will definitely take the somewhat cheaper plastic around the outside to save my back when lugging this to lan parties.
Cons: none really.. i know its advertised that it wont fit a 280mm radiator but i wish they would have made it work. when you sell a product (corsair h110) it should work with most of your cases. that being said still easily modded and i got one on there in about 2 hours.
