  • Summary: I decided it was time to grow up and build myself a NAS. I wanted to keep it small so I looked into Mini-ITX form factors. At first I decided to go with a standard ASUS desktop board with standard RAM.

Got new board and it's working now

Daniel N., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: Update to my previous review. The board I RMAed to newegg did not come up initially. No video and the remote admin page said the board down. Sent email to Asrock support and so far they still haven't replied to me. It cost me 15$ to RMA the memory and motherboard back to newegg.
  • Pros: - Small form which is what I like the most and paid more to get this board. - Remote admin - ECC ram - 6 SATA III ports - 6 good SATA cables
  • Cons: - Expensive board and only go up 16GB ram. 32GB would have been nice. - Only 2 case fans (front and rear) plugs. My case has 3 fans. I want the BIOS to monitor all 3 case fans since the motherboard has SMART FAN sensors. - No HDMI

Dont Buy

Erik K., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Pros: Couldn't say since it never booted
  • Cons: The board when I first ordered it was DOA and it took multiple emails back and forth with a guy named William to finally get a return RMA (which I had to pay the shipping for). I was then charged a $50 fee because one of the plastic clips on the memory was loose before I could get a replacement. ...

Fantastic board for my FreeNas build.

Gadget Dude, Amazon
11 May 2015
  • Summary: Fantastic board for my Freenas build. I needed a small ITX form factor motherboard to fit in my ITX case. Do note: that this board maxes out at 16GB of memory. I really wish they would start designing server class motherboard with higher memory capacities.

Good board, bad IPMI port.

  • Summary: I have to remove one star for the IPMI port being defective. But the board performs well and takes hardly any power to run.

Works Flawlessly

Adam B., Newegg
14 April 2015
  • Summary: All features work exactly as they are documented. I've been using this board on a freenas server for several months with no issues at all. The price was high for what I am using it for, but I would rather get a quality board at a high price than a cheap piece of garbage.
  • Pros: Dedicated BCM, Dual intel Gbit NIC ECC + mITX All features are well documented.
  • Cons: none

DOA with No Tech Support

Ryan McLaughlin, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought this after a month of research into FreeNAS w/ PLEX builds. I had a mini-ITX Prodigy-M case leftover from an HTPC that ended up in a smaller case. This is, to my knowledge, a great feature-full m-ITX Mobo: Xeon support ECC RAM support Six SATA III IPMI Dual ethernet ports USB port on the...
