Great board! Will buy again!

Goran J., Newegg
10 April 2015
  • Pros: Great board! Simple and easy to install in SuperMicro 1U case (N82E16811152131) I used G.SKILL memory (N82E16820231213) and runs great with it. Paired with a 2.5'' sata hdd. This dual-core Atom is surprisingly fast!
  • Cons: Documentation needs improvement. The box that it comes with doesn't not represent the actual item.

Great pfSense board

David L., Newegg
19 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this with a supermicro enclosure (CSE-510-200B) but the fan power cables wouldn't reach across to the headers on the motherboard. Had to buy an extension (GELID Solutions CA-PWM) for it to work. After that, it worked great.
  • Pros: This board worked right out of the box. The IPMI interface and terminal allowed me to mount an ISO on a network share as a virtual usb drive, so I didn't have to create any media.
  • Cons: The IMPI interface causes Java signed certificate errors, I pretty much had to disable all security in Java for it to run.

User Review

Ghyslain L., Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Pros: Small SOHO sever that can accomplish a lot of roles....if you do not expect too much from a MB/CPU at around 225$. Recommended for firewall or small file/NAS server.
  • Cons: 4GB is not enough.....

Not worth the price

chandrasekaran r., Newegg
27 September 2013
  • Pros: low power, because of Atom CPU
  • Cons: IPMI is flacky. It had kernel panic after upgrading the ubuntu distribution. I had to go back to older kernel version to work through. Not to mention LO activity on a new install. LO interface had so much activity.

great motherboard, better then getting bare bone system

Johannes U., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Summary: get this motherboard, together with a SUPERMICRO CSE-510-200B case, instead of the similar barebones. This motherboard is superior compared to the bare bone sold from super micro. But don't forget to get a Y cable as an extension and to connect both case fans.
  • Pros: great features, in particular full featured IPMI providing remote keyboard / video and full power control via a web browser.
  • Cons: don't forget to secure IPMI with a good password.

Works like a champ

Brian C., Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Pros: As indicated by all other reviews, this thing just rocks. IPMI, Dual intel gig, 6 sata, runs cool.
  • Cons: With my setup the fan header locations were a problem. Between the rackmount chasis and the headers, my cables didn't reach. I was planning on using a Y cable for the two front fans, so with the y, it worked. Without it though, I would need extension cables for the fans to reach the header. This ...

Great WHS mobo

Al J., Newegg
26 February 2012
  • Summary: I have two Intel atom boards also, one of which this one replaced. It is pricier, but worth the extra money.
  • Pros: -Silent -IPMI -Good Performance for what it does I purchased this system for home NAS work, initially with unRaid, but then went with WHS 2011 with RAID.
  • Cons: None for me

great NAS mobo

George Y., Newegg
21 February 2012
  • Summary: More detailed documentation on the SATA port numbering, and the use of the DOM port would have been nice.
  • Pros: This board makes for a great FREENAS build. Dual Gig LAN, and the onboard IPMI for server management is a plus. The internal USB is perfect for installing my micro USB with the embedded OS. 6 SATA provide for LOTS of storage capacity.
  • Cons: very minor point that the SATA ports are not well labeled on the board (very tight layout) but even the diagrams in the included documentation do not tell you which SATA port is 0 - 5.

Great little Atom MB

Marc R., Newegg
20 January 2012
  • Summary: Would have likely gotten 5 eggs if not for the IPMI issue.
  • Pros: ITX board with IPMI remote KVM abilities (LOVE THIS). Supports 8GB Ram (despite what website says). 6 SATA connectors (makes for a great NAS system with the Q25 from Lian-li)
  • Cons: IPMI would only work in view only mode (no keyboard). Re-flashed the IPMI bios (separate from MB bios) with the same (latest) version 2.55 and now it works. Took several painfull hours to figure this out (because thought, why flash to same version. Glad I tried that before RMA'ing it). Atom - slo...
