Died Right Near Warranty Period

Pros: - Price
- IPMI interface

Cons: - Seems to have durability issues (see multitude other reviews/Internet posts)
- IPMI interface for remote display capture clunky (requires Java with certain tweaks)

Overall Review: Bought this circa December 2015, and wouldn't you know it, right around the completion of the 3 year warranty mark, it seems to have hit failure. The failure mode is that the system doesn't POST, no display output is seen either from VGA port nor from IPMI interface. The IPMI management site built-in is OK, but the feature for capturing remote video output (like KVM) is very clunky. Requires a working Java runtime on your management host, download of Java file, and it needed tweaking to my Linux Java installation (disablement of MD5 security restriction in Java config file) to get working.

The build it was usded in was a NAS system, and given its affordable price, Intel SoC and good number of SATA ports, it seemed like a winner when I was shopping for it. The NAS system the board drove was a home-based storage solution, and while it was powered on 24/7, it received very, very light use. I'm kind of disappointed with the reviews and reports I've read with the ASRock Avoton based boards. Seems like a manufacturing flaw with either the board or the Intel SoC design, given how prevalent the reported faiulres have been for the ASRock C2XXX boards.

I sent an email to ASRock tech support, hopefully they are responsive.Their ability to react to this and get my NAS back up and running with a functional board will determine whether or not I ever buy a product from them again... :-/

Worked great for almost 2 years. Now dead.

Pros: Worked well for FreeNAS installation. Had no issues for almost 2 years

Cons: Today it just decided to die. No Post, No Fans, No Beeps.
Not an inexpensive board, and was purchased for reliability.

Overall Review: Today this board just died out of the blue. File Server went offline, tried to reboot, and nothing. I started by overnighting a power supply, figuring this was the problem since it would not power up/stay on. After receiving the new power supply and installing, I have the same problem. No Post, No Fans spin up. Light on the motherboard comes on, but then power button is unresponsive.

great board with 12 sata ports

Pros: 12 sata ports. works great for a NAS box.

Cons: Board just died after 16 months of operation, no post... so sad. I was away working when it happened and lost access to all my files. Thank goodness for Dropbox!

Overall Review: I don't think I will recommend this board unless future revisions have resolved this common failure.

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for your input. We have been in contact most recently and it is concluded your C2550D4I needs to be serviced and your RMA number should be on its way. Please also rest assured that the older hardware revision of this C2550D4I is no longer available. And we do have a solution provided by Intel for their C2550 CPU. Please feel free to contact me at William@asrockamerica.com if you have other question.

Thank you!

Died Today

Pros: Originally bought to use for file serving, ended up turning it into a dual-wan router after the clock-generator errata was announced. Died today from said clock generator finally giving up the ghost. Did make it past its warranty date, at least.

Cons: None, really.

Overall Review: Worked fine in both roles I used it for. Kinda sad to see it go.

Hopeful FreeNAS board - failed twice

Pros: Small form factor
Passive cooling
IPMI is great for remote administration
Intel power savings architecture great for FreeNAS build (lots of Idle time)

Cons: Failed twice since original purchase (2016 & 2018)
IPMI software is dated

Overall Review: Overall, a decent home server board but the failure rate is too high
I would NOT recommend purchasing this product

Manufacturer Response:
Dear anonymous,

We apologize for your experience with the C2550D4I. If you could contact us with your previous RMA numbers, we will be able to find out the service records to see if the issues were related to the integrated Intel CPU C2550. Or you may let us know exactly what failure you experienced. We will be able to determine for you if the failure you mentioned is related to whether the software or not. For the RMA service you acquired in 2018, the board you received shouldn’t have any issue. Did you doublecheck the memory & PSU condition? Or is there any other 3rd party PCB connected to the board such as hard drive backplane board? Please feel free to contact me at william@asrockamerica.com for further support.

Thank you!”

Best Regards,

William Lee
