This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600
Pros: I got this board to build my first NAS server, and I've been really happy with it. It seems to have a lot of cool features that a typical mobo wouldn't, specifically remote administration. It supports ECC memory and has the high-quality network interfaces that you need for a good FreeNAS build. It even has a USB port right on it, where you can put your boot device.
It comes with good documentation too, and a handy map showing you what all the plugs on the board are.
Other Thoughts: Everyone's complaining about the ram, so here's what I used: Crucial CT2KIT102472BD160B. Works fine. It's been running 24/7 for a year now with no problems.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: none really
Other Thoughts: I had heard some bad things about these WD Reds, but I got them anyway and have been happy. No issues at all.READ FULL REVIEW
