This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLV-Q-O Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel Q87 DDR3 1600
Pros: for a Supermicro board this is very inexpensive at $154 CAD.
2 good intel nics, Intel I217 & Intel I210
1 PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot , for more Intel nics
Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 Laptop Memory Model KVR16S11S8/4 work great! and at a good price.
Cons: 2 x 204pin memory slots, could not use left over memory (240 pin dimms)
Other Thoughts: when used with an Antec ISK300-150 case, fast 64 GB SSD, 4 gig of ram, a G3258 cpu and an Intel Gigabit Network Adapter, you have the perfect home "Sophos" UTM.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Top notch product. Does what it was designed to do.
It's not plastic but sturdy metal with the parts that need to be plastic, plastic. If you need this item, it is worth the money, shall I say it, over the plastic ones.
It fits and works perfectly in all of my Istarusa trayless hot swap drive cages.
Cons: Price, could be a little less expensive.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for even if you think that it costs too much. Once you've bought it and used it, you will say, glad I bought it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: mitx form factor, 240 pin memory, bluetooth & wireless adapter, stable operation, 6 sata3 connectors, FM2+ socket, good BIOS, online BIOS & driver updates and the list goes on.
Cons: I would have liked it to be a little less expensive. The after the rebate price would be perfect. Can this be called a con?
It's not as good as my Supermicro server board, but still worth 5 eggs.
Other Thoughts: Everyone before me has already stated everything one needs to know about this ASRock motherboard. Keep in mind that a thin circuit board does not make it poor quality, just as a thick one does not mean that it's good. Once properly mounted, it no longer matters. The colour only matters if you frame it, some people do that!
You can buy splitters to run more than 1 fan from a header. How many fans are in a mitx case? 4, why, because they are there. If you can't afford to run extra fans, just turn off the other computers. ;-)
