FreeNAS Motherboard

Go to solution Solved by Charlie27364,

Only server boards support ECC ram, and to this moment i don't think i know of any mATX server boards that are budget.

Hmm, I looked through and the Supermicro X10 SLL-F Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard is the cheapest, best option, but that's $150+. Guess I'll have to have a Non-ECC FreeNAS setup.

 

I'm planning to make a home NAS, I need the cheapest possible Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX motherboard with a minimum of 4 SATA III ports, a PCI-E slot so if I want to in the future I can add a Gigabyte Ethernet port, allows Unbuffered ECC ram, and again, decently priced. Thanks for reading and please reply with decent manners.

I suggest heading to PC part picker, and ramp up the Sata 6Gbps ports, the cheapest alternative i found was this (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gah110ma).

what socket?

Either LGA 1150 or LGA 2011-3, there are good contenders from both of these sockets, and I'm sticking away from AMD because Intel has the lower wattage. Now don't get me wrong I love AMD and my last computer had a FX-6100, and my current computer has a FX-8310 but for a NAS low wattage is a huge factor.

 

Edit: Socket LGA 1151 too, I haven't checked out the new skylake processors expect for the i5-6600k and i7-6700k so I forget about skylake a lot.

It doesn't look like it supports ECC ram.
