That is exactly what brought me to this thread. I have AT&T 5G install scheduled for next week and my current router (netgate 2100) has 2.5G max port. I need to find a solution with 2 x 5gig compatible ports as well.

One workaround folks here have found is to pass it through a 10GbE switch that can sync 2.5/5GbaseT. E.g., CRS305 with ipolex SFP+/10GbaseT transceivers, or perhaps Netgear XS505M, MS510TX etc.

Thanks Sean! I had not thought of using a switch. I have a QSW-M1208-8C switch that I can use at least as temporary solution.
I saw a youtube vid where a guy was using a QSW-308-1C switch to convert RJ45 to Fiber to avoid using the RJ45>SFP+ transceiver to connect to his UDM-Pro. But, it had not occured to me that I could do the same for my issue.

Does anyone have the IPMI firmware image or at least the version that is known to work on the X10SLH-N6-ST031?

I updated the firmware and it doesn't work- no sensors detected causing the the board to go into overheat mode.

Edit - actually never mind - it's now clear this board is just broken and has nothing to do with the firmware version.

This week I finally assembled and tested the router based on this mobo (inside case from an old Asus RS100), with an additional 6x1G NIC called Silicom PEG6 and 2x1G+2x10G combo NIC called IBM EN0T. Everything seems fine, pushing 10G through two additional fiber ports consumes nearly 1% of CPU (since almost everything is offloaded), so theoretically it could handle about 180G duplex speed across all its ports in L2 mode.

So everything seems fine except these X540 NICs do not support speeds between 1G and 10G. I only found out this today, after I purchased some 2.5G USB3 NICs to run over my existing Cat.5e cables...

Anyway I'm happy to have this little puppy, since its price was almost like any usual old mobo, but it has some advantages.

Do you know the reference of your case ?
I am trying to buy a case for this MB, and your seams to be the smallest one possible.
Thanks
someone had asked me in DM about it. The brand isn't marked, and I bought mine used from a guy locally. Image searching led me to these similar cases (which are no longer in stock) but maybe give an idea.

I've also been told that a fractal node 804 should fit a board this long but don't think anyone's tried it.
