Anyone use Iwill Technology ITX Fanless Server PC i3 7100U 6*lan



  • Hi,

    I am new with Pfsense and I’m about to buy a mini PC for my first try. But before I make final decision I would like to get some feedback and if you has any experience with this specification.

    Here I found IWILL Technology with below product specification:

    1. Intel Skylake Core i3 7100U dual core 2.4GHz/Kabylake Celeron 3865U dual core 1.8Ghz Optional
    2. Support 2*DDR4 1866/2133MHz, max 32G.
    3. 1HD Port+4USB3.0+6LAN+1RJ45 COM(support console)+1*Power switch
    4. AMI 64MB Flash ROM .support RPL/PXE diskless boot,  electricity boot, WDT
    5. High-quality Fanless pure aluminum Case
    6. 1MSATA,1SATA3.0, 1*mini-PCIE(support wifi/bluetooth)
    7. 6*Intel 82583V 1000M lan card, support wake on lan

    and I selected:

    1. Intel Core i3 7100U dual core 2.4GHz (Kaby Lake)
    2. 4GB DDR4
    3. 128 GB SSD storage
    4. 6*Intel 82583V 10/100M/1000M Lan

    I also aware of Kaby Lake processors hyper-threading issue (https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=132783.msg730001#msg730001), But I don’t know if I disable the hyper-threading does it have a significant performance issue ?

    Any opinions or advice would be appreciated!! :)

  • Looks like a MiniSys reseller to me.



  • Iwill used to be a noted server maker around Y2K. Looks like this is not the same company.

    Just remember that these chicom specials are disposable boxes and there will be no real warranty.



  • Thanks for the feedback's! :)

    maybe, I'm not sure.. but they are in business more than 10 years.

    I have received my package, super fast delivery with good condition.
    I didn't have time to test it yet but I will update you later regarding the installation and performance .
