(Verified Purchase)

This board has been the heart of my Freenas build for 6 months. I've never had an issue, everything was recognized right away by freebsd, uses intel nics. Couldn't ask for much more for the price...

Decent layout, reliable, plenty of internal fan headers
Takes standard desktop memory
Several slots the ITX version does not have
Sips power
Lower power board with plenty of expansion slots
Could use more sata ports
4-pin fan headers would have been nice
Board was DOA
I had high hopes for this board as I planned on building a NAS box tonight but that all went down the drain after I attached the PSU to the board and realized nothing was turning on. My initial though
This is the second board I purchased from ASRock hoping that the first board I received was a hiccup. Unfortunately, it's a running theme with me and these motherboards as they refuse to work
