Good low power motherboard

  • Summary: There really aren't many options for a socket G2 motherboard here but this one did the job. Used in mini-itx case with 4 3TB "green" drives, an i5-2520M cpu, 8 GB of memory, and Windows Home Server 2011. System doesn't even get over 65W or so even when stress testing.
  • Pros: An actual server board with all of the remote management tools you could want with Intel Management Engine and remote console options. Sata was sufficient and raid was easy enough to configure. Has an internal USB header for a USB flash drive which is good for applications where you can boot from...
  • Cons: No eSata ports. Sometimes loses the USB mouse requiring a quick disconnect and reconnect for some reason but that might just be my setup for some reason. No mSata port.
