My first SuperMicro motherboard. Although the packaging was not as flash as the more commercial brands, the board itself and its IPMI interface is fantastic. Was able to install this easily. The only minor considerations are the issues around the web interface always asking for Java version and the mediocre I/O plate part around the LAN connectors. There are only 2 SATA3 ports but that's part of the spec and is not an issue. The USB onboard is great for booting Freenas from. Overall despite its minor flaws, this is a great board.
