This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600
Pros: ECC support, IPMI, dual Intel NICs.
The IPMI meant that I never needed to hook a monitor or keyboard to the machine - not even to do the initial install. It has been running FreeNAS in my garage for 6 months now with no problems. Very happy with this purchase. Would recommend it to anyone for use as a home FreeNAS server.
Cons: Getting the Java-based IPMI KVM console to work can be a pain (particularly in Linux) and I never did manage to get it to mount a remote disk image. Not that big a deal though since the machine is headless anyway. I haven't had a reason to access the console since I finished the initial installation.
Other Thoughts: Loaded this up with an Intel Xeon E3-1230V3 Haswell 3.3GHz processor (sold as a combo deal with the mobo) and 32GB of Kingston Model KVR16E11K4/32 RAM. Since I planned to use this as a FreeNAS server the ECC support was crucial. The integrated Intel NICs also offer great performance as compared to Realtek NICs that you might find in some other boards.READ FULL REVIEW
