Can someone confirm that the Supermicro X9SCAA motherboard will work with pfSense?
It looks like an ideal motherbord for this purpose in my opinion.
Processor Intel Atom N2800, only 6.5 watts
mSATA, dual intel LAN
More specifications at:
I could not find the 82574L support in the FreeBSD 8.3 HCL, only 82574 without the "L". I dont know if it's maybe supported anyways, but i would check it out before buying. Also the board is heavily crippled by the Atom processor. Nowdays you can buy other x86-boards with integrated low voltage processors that support up to 16/32 GB RAM, have USB 3, newer NIC:s and so forth. If you are getting this board very cheap, i guess it's worth a try.
yes the 82574l works.
L/IT are temperature specs.
L is 0 to 85C "commercial temperature"
IT is -40 to 85C "industrial temperature"
This looks to be a similar-but-updated board (newer Atom, newer glue chip, same NICs) of the X7SPE-HF-D525, which I've used very successfully. Mine is packaged as a 5015A-EHF-D525 server.
Your board is lacking IPMI, which something I've found very useful.
Atoms are limited, see this post:
