ASRock E3C226D2I Mini ITX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C226 DDR3 1600 / 1333 ECC DIMM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -reliable
-fully supported by freenas
-worked out of the box

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Got it for freenas, together with
-KVR16LE11/8KF 1 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L ECC CL11 DIMM 1.35V w/TS Server Kingston F

Memory selection is CRITICAL - you can't go wrong if you go with official compatibility list. Anything else and you are risking shipping charges.

Works stable, onboard remote access works fine - browser selection is critical here.

No complains, works stable, high uptime. running it with 4 WD REDs in RAIDZ1.

Mobo controls 2 PWM fans nicely.

Definitely reccomend, wish it was cheaper.

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.

  • neweggOwned 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.
