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. After a little OS tuning I utilize 60% CPU time and 70% memory ( up from <15% memory and CPU time ) and can write 70+ MB/S (up from about 40MB/S).

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). I run an LVM + MD RAID (RAID5) stack and am testing btrfs. The E350 isn't a fireball but it does keep up and is able to outpace my raw drive performance.

Greate for my Ubuntu Precise 12.04 install

Mimosa Consulting "Don Bauer", Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: I installed this Motherboard in a In-Win Case BP671.200BL Mini-ITX Mini Tower Black 200W 1/0/(2) Bay USB HD Audio 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). The 2 of 6 SATA3 ports are used for 2 hard drives (one is 6gps drive).

DOA

K, 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. Update 8/18/12: Received the RMA, and it booted right up. I love the EFI interface. Uses 37W load and 29W idle as a home server. Not bad considering my E8400 IP cam server averages 80W and 120W peak.

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. I'll typically put this in a small case with an SSD and a platter drive, and install ESXi with a pfSense VM, an Ubuntu Server VM, and a Windows VM. It makes a great value-oriented small business router/firewall/VPN/backup device.

Don't use for Hot Swapping

Josh, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: There is some sort of issue with this mobo's sata controller. If you hotplug a drive, the adjacent sata port quits working while the new drive is brought up. If you use raidz, RAID5 or mirroring, you cannot hotplug and keep the pool up, you have to reboot, which means that you might as well not hotplug it. Since I bought this specifically for the 6 port sata hot plugging. I have to give it a low rating, because it doesn't work correctly.

Best value mini-itx motherboard with 6 SATA ports

Dougie Fresh, Amazon
14 October 2011
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time over the past year looking for a motherboard to use in a home server build. I wanted six SATA ports in a mini-itx board, which until I found this motherboard, could only be found for a lot more money and/or from manufacturers I do not trust. Lately, ASUS has been my go to manufacturer and once again they have not let me down.

Perfektes Server-Board

darkness, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe mir dieses Mainboard für einen Server gekauft und war von Anfang an davon begeistert. Vorteile: * ein Mini-ITX Board (ok, persönliche Vorliebe, aber mir gefällts^^) * passiv gekühlt, dadurch auch keine Lärmentwicklung und wird auch nicht sehr heiß * verbraucht inklusive aller anderen Komponenten (Festplatte, Gehäuselüfter) nur 30 - 35 Watt, was mir auch sehr wichtig war Nachteile fallen mir gerade keine ein^^ Wer auch noch W-Lan auf dem Board haben will, dem...

Lesen können = Vorteil

denco, Amazon
7 March 2012
  • Summary: Hallo Zusammen, habe das Motherboard für ein Nas gekauft, da ich den Fertiglösungen kein Vertrauen schenke und sie meinen Anforderung an Datenintegrität nicht entsprechen. Nun zum MB-Selbst es ist sicherlich nicht das Beste, Ausstatungsreichste oder evtl. Schnellste Kombination aus MB & APU, aber noch mal zum Ziel, das Nas braucht nur Festplatten zu verwalten und dafür ist's das Board das Geeignetste es hat ein Gigabit Netzwerk und 6xSataIII Anschlüssen, woran bei mir...

Für Homeserver brauchbar, zum Arbeiten naja.

M. Günther "pP", Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Als Arbeitsrechner (surfen, Videos schauen, Office Software) taugt das Board bedingt, solange man nicht mit Archiven hantiert. Hier fehlt dem Prozi erwartungsgemäß die nötige Power, und das Arbeiten wird zur leichten Qual. Zudem benötigt die GPU Kühlung, da sonst Bildfehler auftreten (Win7 x64, Catalyst 11.2).
