Pros: I purchased this board alongside an Intel Celeron (Ivy Bridge) for use in a file/plex/minecraft/mumble/etc server. It has a ton of SATA ports for the price, which was a major factor in my decision to purchase it. It seems well made, and thus far it's been 100% stable since I started it. It just works. And the features, and stability at the price, make this board a fantastic choice. Good job, ASRock.
Cons: Only 2 DRAM slots, but that isn't really a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Running with
Intel Celeron Ivy Bridge 2.6Ghz
8GB Crucial Ballistix 1333 RAM
1x AData 64GB SSD, 3x WD Green 2TB, 1x Hitachi 750GB HDD, 1x Hitachi 320GB HDD, 1x Samsung 500GB HDD
Antec Neo Eco 400C PSU
Pros: Using as the server CPU, running a minecraft server, KSP server, plex transcode server, Mumble server, and IRC Bot.
Handles everything with ease, can handle 2 simultaneous transcodes in plex easily. Even under maximum load running h264 encoding in handbrake, it is still pulling less than 20 watts. This is incredible performance/watt. Great job as usual, Intel. At this incredibly low power, there is no reason to use anything but the stock intel heatsink, as it's more than sufficient.
Cons: It's not an i5?
Other Thoughts: Running on an ASRock B75M mATX motherboard with a ton of Harddrives, and 8GB of Crucial Ballistix RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Using this in my Server, which runs a minecraft server, KSP Server, Mumble Server, Plex Server, and a SAMBA file server. Works as expected, stable and good performance. Sasuga, Crucial.
Cons: Be careful with the heat spreaders. They feel like they might detatch from the modules if you squeeze the top too tightly.
