SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SL7-F-O server mobo for custom build?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

wondering if anyone tried this motherboard "SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SL7-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C222 DDR3 1600". It looks like reasonably priced, with features suitable to NAS.

 

What interests me is that it has total 14 sata/sas ports on board:

4 x SATA 3.0Gb/s + 2 x SATA 6.0Gb/s

8x SAS2 (6Gbps) ports via LSI 2308

 

It also has two Gbit LAN port (Intel I210-AT)

 

I am thinking of using it for a custom Xpenology build. But want to know first if these hardware are supported?

 

Also what (inexpensive) CPU would you recommend?

 

Thanks!

It's very similar to a system I'm currently building using an Asrock E3C224D4I-14S.

 

Today my board came, so I borrowed a buddies i3 CPU just so I can test everything. I'm waiting for my new processor to come (XEON E3-1275L V3). The i3 I borrowed doesn't support VT-d, so I can't passthrough the LSI SAS yet. So I just installed esxi and create a VM with nanaboot. But I'm loving these server features, IPMI, iKVM :ugeek:
