ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Motherboards 02/10/2015

This review is from: ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've used four of these for assorted XenServer / ESXi / Hyper-V servers (1U / mini-towers) with quad gigabit intel NICs, and these things blow me away. (built a home lab with these)

VT-D works wonderfully, all of the visualization software works out of the box.
I've used a few different CPU's with these boards, to include: 2600k, G1610, 3330s, and G540. Each has worked fantastically.

The Network BIOS updating feature is a favorite.
To get Windows Deployment Services running properly, I had to add the Ethernet Drivers to my image, but that's to be expected.

Cons: I wish that the integrated NIC was Intel, and higher performing, but.... at this price point? I love everything.

Other Thoughts: If you're building a home lab, this board, a $40 celeron, 2*8GB sticks of memory, and a nice NIC goes a LONG way.

5 out of 5 eggs Works very well 01/24/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-SC1U - 70mm Twin Ball Bearing CPU Cooler Fans

Pros: I have this installed in my Untangle box, a short 1U case with a Celeron G1610. Even with the fan turned down to 1 (out of 10) in my BIOS, it keeps the CPU almost at room temperature.

Cons: It gets a bit loud when on full, but that was completely expected.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DAE-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5520 DDR3 1333
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have this motherboard setup with two L5520's, and 48GB of memory. 8 hard drives later, and it's the basis for my ZFS FREENAS fileserver. Amazingly fast. Zero issues with setup, and it's rock solid.

Deduplication and high file compression work wonderfully.

Cons: 250W sustained is a bit much for a file server at home, but... well worth it for the extra performance.
