Solid and stable, Good CPU/RAM support, IPMI/OOB management that works, Great for VMware ESXi 5.5u1

Sid "technophile and student", Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Mini-ITX form factor with server-grade chipset and OOB management (IPMI) Works with VMware ESXi 5.5u1 out of the box (5.5 requires one driver provided by VMware) Supports most Haswell CPUs (Xeon E3 v3, i3-4xxx, i5-4xxx, i7-4xxx) Supports ECC DDR3 memory (Xeon and i3 only) as well as low voltage (1.35V) Dual Intel gigabit ethernet Fits into Mini-Box M350 case (better with an aftermarket CPU cooler -- see below) Cons: Difficult to fit some coolers due to motherboard...

A review from a different angle

Fernando, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: A bought this motherboard with different intentions than most. Most people buying this motherboard are looking to make a server out of it... I actually purchased mine with the intention to use it as a Workstation. I am running Debian 7.6 and Slackware 14.1, Both OS run smoothly. I am very happy with the motherboard and I would recommend it, not only for server use but as a workstation motherboard as well. A+.

From Defective to Working, Great product, slow RMA process.

Robert Clendenin, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Item was defective on delivery. System would not post with known good CPU and RAM. IPMI interface stopped working after one reboot. Am working with ASRock to get replacement product, once received I will revise this review with a review of the RMA process and a working Motherboard. Update 1. 6/26 ASROCK RMA process is a bit painful. Replacement board will arrive on 6/28.

A good board when you get it working!

Carl Stevens, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: This board works well, but only after some initial problem solving with the board. Initially, I couldn't get the board to boot at all, and only the IPMI interface was working. I changed the IPMI interface on to a static IP, and it was never to be seen again! I even tried using Wireshark to track it down and see if it had picked up a random address, but it was lost in the ether due to DHCP being turned off...

Fantastic board

G. Young, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: Used as part of a FreeNAS set-up - with 2 x 8 GB ram and a Xeon E3-1230 v3. It works fantastically - 6 SATA powering 6 WD HHD's in RAIDZ2. Suits me perfectly.

Surprisingly good low-end server board

Zarniwoop, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Writing a little capsule review mostly in response to DSS's lacklustre review since I've had a much better experience with this motherboard. In short, I wanted a mITX board to build a small but powerful home server; I initially bought an Intel S2100KPR since it was one of the only mITX boards that supported ECC memory. Then Haswell and these ASRock units came out and I thought "what the hell" and bought one of these.

  • Summary: wer etwas mehr will als ein standard ITX Mainboard greift hier zu. Serverboard mit IPMI Management (Webinterface und Java Remote Control Tool) kein Monitor und Tastatur mehr für Server Maintenance nötig, alles über remote control machbar.

Einwandfrei!

  • Summary: Hält was es verspricht! Hat im Gegensatz zum Asus P9D-I 6x statt nur 4x SATA. Es ist mein erstes Board von diesem Hersteller und ich wurde nicht enttäuscht!
