Thanks for your report. That is the first time I saw idle power numbers.
How did you measure?
Hoping mine will come in lower. I ordered a G3220 and will use a Kill A Watt
EDIT: I saw before your edit idle power 30W. 23W is better!
I posted about your issue with booting FreeNAS on the asrock board on the freenas forum:
STH's take on the new Avotons | FreeNAS Community
They suggested disabling features and components in the BIOS that are not necessary. Did you happen to do any troubleshooting?
Dang, I am really starting to get anxios about this. I want to get my build going.
Still no pricing information on these boards, and the supermicro board has shown up for cheaper then expected.
Does anyone know if the supermicro board boots with FreeNAS?
