Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic little server board for light virtualization and file serving I'm just using this as a "home server", so it gets relatively light usage. I wanted to set up several virtual machines, so that I don't have everything sharing the same Linux environment. I also wanted something that could store all my files and give an acceptable performance with mirrored software RAID - so, nothing requiring blistering performance, just something that works and doesn't crawl along. As I expect this to be on 24 hours a day I wanted something that wasn't going to guzzle power, so Atom was what I intended to get. The system is idle most of the time but there is certainly room for expansion (I can add more disks, more RAM, and have sufficient processing power to do most things). Running with 5 SATA disks (some WD Reds, some older WD Greens) it consumes just over 50 watts of power whilst idle. It seems to cope with what I throw at it and the disk performance is pretty good. The fact the board has several disk controllers was appealing - I've ensured the two disks in each mirror are on separate controllers which does seem to be a bit faster. The ability to access the BIOS and generally "see" the screen through a Java applet, along with the various system health information via a browser is really nice. I had some issues with the watchdog timer which might just be down to a bad Linux driver but I had to stop using it after the system rebooted itself due to the watchdog chip doing something odd. In summary: It's a very nice motherboard. I'm sure it can do far more than I am tasking it with right now and I don't anticipate upgrading it for a very long time. 17 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little server board Currently using two of these for non-critical business system VMs on Xen, performance is surprisingly good and with the eight cores you can get a fair amount of VMs on them. Have also used Ubuntu with ZFS for a network file store (Samba/iSCSI) on another which, I believe, this is the primary use case ASRock had in mind when they built these. All works fine, only things to note is the boot process is frighteningly slow which makes you think you've got a dud to start with. A note to those new to server hardware make sure you get the correct RAM (ECC unbuffered), it would be nice to see SCAN do a 'compatible products' section not just an 'other people also bought'. 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent board I bought this board as the linchpin to a NAS I was building. It's now been running for approximately a year without issue. What more can I say; excellent. Recently the IPMI remote control application stopped working. I since have this back up and running again by generating my own certificate and assigning it to the IPMI. Now when using IE it says it doesn't trust the site (even though the cert has been added to the Trusted store), and Java prompts to continue; no problem though as at least it works now!! There's plenty of SATA ports so it's great for my use case. It boots off of USB without a problem and runs FreeNAS equally without issue. I have disabled the boot capability for the Marvel controller which seems to have saved some time at boot up. SMART has also been enabled. The PWM functionality has been a God send for the fans that I am using. Many reviews say this board is picky with memory. I already had an 8GB (Crucial Ballistix - BLS2CP8G3D1609DS1S00CEU) stick laying around so thought I'd give it a go - it wasn't on the Memory QVL. It worked without issue so I went ahead and bought some more - I now have 32GB of RAM in it. All in all and excellent purchase that has worked flawlessly from a hardware perspective since purchase. 27 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slow to start, but whatever This is currently serving as the motherboard and CPU for the FreeNAS machine at work. It's taking care of 24TB of WD Caviar Reds and a USB stick juuust fine. I had a little trouble with it when I first got it, as I'm spoiled by consumer class motherboards, which POST in under a second, so I thought this wasn't POSTing, as it takes about 30. Once you have this knowledge, it's not much of an issue, as a board like this will generally be serving in a situation that doesn't call for much rebooting. 24 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Buy the right RAM! This only supports unbuffered RAM so don't fall into that trap like I did. Unfortunately this means the max RAM is limited to 32GB ATM unless you get 16GB DIMMS shipped in from Germany and at ~€350 a little pricey to say the least. Also note that this doesn't have sound on-board so you will need to add a sound-card if you need audio. Otherwise very happy with this MB, the management interface is very cool (check out youtube reviews of this) 04 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful, silent and loads of SATA connectivity I'm using this in a Nanoxia Deep Silence case along with 8 spinning disks to run FreeNAS. I have a huge amount (21Tb) of better than RAID6 storage without messing with add-on cards and the motherboard calculates the on-the-fly compression & variable stripes of ZRAID2 faster than my network can push data at it. Woooossshhhh 09 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great little board for a NAS I'm using this as the basis for a NAS Box. there are plenty of SATA connections on board, but they are a mixture of SATA2 and SATA3 and differing chipsets. There are appears to be only one hard to come by 16GB UDIMM that is compatible and we had to use 8GB units. The processor is * cores, which is fine if you are using multiple applications or multi threaded applications 18 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Board uses low power and 8 cores This board is a great server board in the data centre. 8 cores and sips electric. Other people review these boards on the web thinking they can just chuck in any old memory etc, you can't it's a server board and you can ONLY use the memory off the approved hardware list. Scan do memory for this board which is I believe CT102472BD160B which gives you 32GB. If you want 64GB you need to source 4 x 16GB UDIMM sticks from www.intelligentmemory.com, they are the only company currently selling 16GB UDIMM sticks. Scan don't sell these. If you don't use approved memory it won't boot. Great board ! 16 January 2015

I am just wondering what bios version this has installed as I believe there are some issues with the earlier bios and these have since been addressed

Answer: 
Different batches will have different revs so it's a timing issue - your purchase may have the latest but they update it whilst it's in the post to you.

I did need to flash one of the SATA controllers to bring it up to latest revision but the EFI/BIOS makes such things a walk in the park - no messing about, stuck the new firmware on a memory stick and told it to sort it out.

So, when it arrives, check the ASRock site and update if required.

Answer: 
I purchased one at the begining of June and came with version 2.50, however it was very easy to update to the latest version (2.80) using the Flash Installer, which essentially involves downloading the lastest version to a USB stick, plugging it into a spare USB port on the motherboard, powering on and selecting the flash install option. Only takes a few mins.

If you're running windows I believe you can also do this via a windows or dos program rather than a via a USB stick but I haven't tried it.
