It's older tech, but it's rock solid reliable when used with compatible memory

  • Summary: Ok, if you're looking at this, you're probably aware of the benefits and shortcomings of this motherboard. For those who aren't aware, here's some info: Pro: 1. It's rock solid, as long as you use the right memory. 2. The IPMI interface allows you to remotely control it. I run it headless, and by RDP into my desktop PC, I can run the Supermicro software and reboot the server. 3. The components are very standardized, and most OSs will handle it quite well.

This is an excellent, compact, and affordable file server board

  • Summary: CPU support for Pentium G6950 and Celeron G1101. Dual Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controllers. mATX form factor with 4 Sata ports for a nice compact system. Tested memory list includes common value ECC RAM found on Newegg (CT25672BA1339). Linux drivers. This thing is rock solid stable and fast. I am using Cent OS and it just rocks. 4 500GB WD RE4 Sata Drives. If someone is looking for a economical, compact, stable server build, this is perfect.
