Motherboard advice sought: Fujitsu or Supermicro?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am aiming to build an XPEnology NAS that doubles as a (simple) computing server. I want to follow what @flyride built here (microatx, Xeon e3-1200, large RAM, dual NVME via pcie, ready for 10GbE, extra M2 for ESXi). I have narrowed my motherboard options to the following based on features. 


  • Fujitsu d3417-b2 (cheap, low power when idle, expandable for 10GbE, video connectors although not planning to use those)
  • Supermicro X11SSH-TF (more expensive, but built-in 10 GbE)


Do you agree that these are my best options?

I barely found reviews of either. Can I expect similar performance between the two?

Are any issues to be expected when installing and running DSM?


My first thought would be to go for the Fujitsu. Despite that Supermicro already has 10GbE at the extra price a pcie board would cost as I do not need it straight away.
