This review is from: ASRock E3C224-4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600/1333
Pros: I paired this board with Xeon E3-1230V3, 8GB of RAM from the SUPPORTED RAM list on the OEM's website, a 840 SSD, and a WD VelociRaptor. In this combination this system flies.
Cons: Little firmware upgrade bug. When you update the IPMI firmware if you cancel it or complete the upgrade it will reset to an unknown password. In order to fix this I just used ipmitool to change the password from a linux boot disk.
Other Thoughts: Overall asides the IPMI quirk a VERY solid board. And in my configuration it exceeds my needs many times over.READ FULL REVIEW
