schoon you know how we are, We start the thread driving a 4 cylinder Vega and before you know it we are driving a Lamborghini

Need?  What's this need you speak of?  lol

lol, yup, this is a fantastic platform for a router.     In fact, this is EXACTLY what I'm using for Sophos UTM.

I show it as Out of Stock at NewEgg but it is available at Amazon:

 

https://www.amazon.com/ASRock-Rack-J1900D2Y-Motherboard/dp/B01B961J6C/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470663948&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=ASRock+J1900D2Y+Mini+ITX+Server+Motherboard

 

One of the review said it was VERY particular about the RAM speed.

I think it is showing out of stock becouse it was a open box item, Here is the link I pulled from my wish list for the same board that's in stock.

I was also going to use this board to build a new router for Untangle but have not got around to it yet, I was also going to use this case with it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129185

Sorry about that!  I thought they would have more than one open box item.  I went with 1333 Mhz ram.  Fingers crossed!

I got one to run Untangle on, too.  I have an Atom D525 Supermicro board laying around too but I like the idea of having a little more power if I needed it.  Plus the price was right.  I'm going to throw it into a 2u case I have in my rack sitting idle.

For my connection? yes, absolutely.

 

I only have 150mbps down, and 25mpbs up. 

 

But I do have pretty much everything enabled (including decryption and scanning of all web traffic, HTTPS included). 

 

 

 

What power supply are you running with this?

 

For me ... 

 

The case's.  Which I can plug into the case, or the motherboard directly. :)

ROFLMAO

 

That's the exact case I'm using, actually. 

 

 

Hivemind here, apparently. :P

I honestly have no idea.  It's been too long.

 

However, It's most likely GSKILL non-ECC RAM (as that's most likely what I had laying around)

Shew, that's what I ordered.  Good ole GSKILL.
