New board available, ASRock E3C224D4I-14S. Extended mini-itx with 3 NIC'S

  • Just saw this new board posted today on newegg. Looks like it would be great for this application.


  • It actually has 2 NIC's, one is a dedicated IPMI port. It could work but it's target audience is more the storage crowd. There have been a few FreeNAS buiilds with it and it seems to be a solid performer. It's a perfect fit for a 10 drive FreeNAS build in the Lian Li PC-Q26.

  • Perhaps also interesting for you Gigabyte GA-6LISL
    Its available for ~280 € here in Germany.

    • only max. 16 GB
    • only two NICs
    • UDIMM support
    • flat design
    • Intel i210-AT NICs
    • solid made server grade
    • DDR3-1866MHz ECC RAM support
    • 1 x PCIe x16 (Gen3 x16 bus) slot

    If at a later time point another add on PCIe card is needed it will better to get the PCIe 3.0 x16 slot.
    Perhaps something as the Chelsio 10 GbE adapter or a Intel QuickAssist adapter from the Netgate store.
    Or will this be for a home usage only?
