Nice

Timko Mathiasen, Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: The brain of my FreeNAS, nice quit, and responsive. Lots of SATA for my FreeNAS, I put 8Gb ram and the board has no need of kvm or monitor to fully boot, which was great as a server for me.

Just what I needed

Flyer, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Like some others, I wanted to build a home NAS array. I was having trouble finding a motherboard that had many SATA ports when I ran across this one. With the six on board SATA and a 4 port PCI-e SATA card I was set to go. I loaded up NAS4FREE and started with 3 4TB drives in a RAIDZ array.

Exactly what I have been looking for

Tim Soderstrom "m00dawg", Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: What I was looking for was a modern, but fanless, processor, 6 SATA ports and GigE to power my Linux-powered home NAS. This delivers. The only minor gripe I could have is lack of dual NIC, so it cannot be used as a router without adding a NIC (via the PCIe expansion slot).

Greate for my Ubuntu Precise 12.04 install

Mimosa Consulting "Don Bauer", Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: I installed this Motherboard in a Installed Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) 64-bit, using on-board video, audio. The install was perfect and I have absolutely NO issues with ASUS or Ubuntu. The board is fast, energy efficient and contains one PCI-e video slot for an additional card (I use on-board video).

DOA

Kytor Industries, Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: This board arrived DOA. To confirm the board was bad I tried two different PSUs, four different brands of RAM, and two different monitors -- both the DVI and VGA ports. It powers up, but there' no video. I will update this review when I get a replacement.

User Review

Shawn N., Newegg
8 June 2012
  • Summary: My solution to the NIC issues was to add in a PCI-E quad port, but both cards I had didn't work. I was able to get an intel dual port 1gb card to work, but required an older bios version and very specific settings.
  • Pros: 6 sata ports make this an extremely cost effective storage server solution. Runs cool with no noise (mine doesn't whine like others have reported). Running FreeNAS with 8gb of RAM as an iscsi target.
  • Cons: onboard NIC = JUNK! Constantly loses connectivity and requires a cold restart to bring the NIC back to life. PCI-E port is also very finicky when it comes to anything other than gfx cards

Board is great for some apps, but not an HTPC

SC Engineer "SC Engineer", Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: This board is handy, but I wouldn't try to use it as an HTPC. There simply is not enough horsepower to play back Bluray content. Otherwise, one of my favorite applications for this board is as an all-in-one small business edge/server device.

Perfect for Freenas System

Joseph C., Newegg
12 May 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure other reviews pertain to this board. My NIC port runs as a gigabit port. I had an old router and had to upgrade to a newer router for it to run that fast. I am running freenas 8.2 off a usb with no issue I will probably purchase the big brother ASUS E35M1-M PRO Fusion AMD E-350 APU to...
  • Pros: Low Power, Quiet, Small, and pretty much plug and play. I purchased an open box for $40 less. This is a perfect board to run a freenas file server. 6 internal high speed sata ports...what more can you ask for. Asus makes a solid product.
  • Cons: Advanced Bios settings not well documented and took a bit of playing with to get freenas to boot off a usb thumb drive.
