ASRock QC5000-ITX AMD FT3 Kabini A4-5000 Quad-Core APU BGA769 (FT3) Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small
Low power usage
Small formfactor being mini-ITX
The CPU runs relatively cool 36.5C with a new Noctua 40 mm fan
A quad core
Runs Ubuntu server 14.04.2 LTS with no problems
Has msata mini for wifi

Cons: The UEFI is a little odd, it could be simplified with less visual appeal
More fan headers
The CPU fan was a little noisy but what 40mm fan isnt (the Noctua one isnt though)
wish it had full sized msata for an ssd

SYBA SD-PEX24033 Dual LAN Ports Gigabit Ethernet Card, Realtek Chipset 10/100/1000Mbps PCI-Express x1 2 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -10/100/1000
-2 ports
-reliable (for my network load at least)
-cheap
-working Realtek drivers for PfSense
I kinda took a gamble with this card to save some money when i was building my router about 6 or 7 months ago and it has worked great so far. This card is running 24/7 with up to 30 simultaneous connections to other computers, phones, laptops and what ever other things i can hook up to it.

Cons: It could have more ports i guess. An intel chipset and wake on lan would be nice too.

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking of building a PfSense box, dont go with the SYBA SY-PEX24028 or the Rosewill RNG-407. They are the same card and they seem to have some issues that this card does not have.
