Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ECC Registered Memory KVR16LR11S4/8KF w/TS Kingston F
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: reasonable priced ECC memory for FreeNas mini-ITX ZFS E3C226D2I-based build. Not much else to say. Timings are not perfect but can't complain for price.

Cons: none, other than rather plain-looking.

Other Thoughts: There are very similar models, and they might work - but check HCL first. I initially ordered similar one - had to send it back, board didn't post.

ASRock E3C226D2I Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600/1333
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: IPMI (see cons), 6 Sata 3 ports, onboard USB for bootable USB stick, 2 network ports

Cons: 1) IPMI remote console has problems with non-IE browser (tried Chrome and Firefox on windows 7), works randomly on and off with latest JRE.
No issues with IE 11/latest JRE, worked fine. One egg off.

2) There are 2 4-pin fan ports, "front" and "rear", both (supposedly) temp-controlled. Apparently only "front" adjusts RPMs based on temp, second one (using 2 identical fans) runs at 100%. I ordered splitter, but expect it to work out of the box on $200+ MB. Bios tweaking didn't help, including manual fan speed adjustments.

Other Thoughts: I tried ~$150 Tyan first, but sent it back, too many issues. This one, while too expensive for my test, is the only one available today (August 2014) supporting 6 Sata ports and ECC memory (a must, in my opinion, for ZFS) for 1150.

Used it with KVR16LR11S4/8KF and I3-4130T. FreeNas works fine, at least during initial setup and light usage.

Overall, if I do it again, would probably tried 4-core SOC supermicro mini-ITX board - similar price with cpu already included.

2 out of 5 eggs I really want to keep, but... 07/24/2014

This review is from: TYAN S5533GM2NR-LE Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

Pros: -boots freenas (with I3 gen 4)

Cons: -IKVM - can't disable root or change password for root account
-second system fan runs at 100%, no matter what I tried (mobo has 4-wire fan jack, and my fan is 3 wire, but 1st system fan runs at 900 rpm, send at 1500 rpm - identical fans.

Other Thoughts: This is cheapest mini-itx mobo I found that support ECC and has 6 SATA ports for my nas4free or freenas build.

So far I don't have worm and fussy filling about this mobo. While it boots freenas - inability to change password for known iKVM root account is dealbraker.

Fan at 100% is another issue - probably solvable by paralleling 2 fans. Again - this is not type of corner-cutting I would like to do for 24/7 setup.

good luck with your build
