The Asus E35M1-M Pro would be great as the core of a home server, especially with the ample number of SATA ports. It of course can also pull double duty as a proficient home theater PC.[...]five SATA 6 Gbps ports, eSATA, USB 3.0, FireWire, and two fully controllable fan headers

Can't complain about this APU, it's a great little thing for a server/web browser/... with its low power consumption and minimal noise generation. It also manages to beat the pants off of any Atom+Ion combination out there now and does it at a better price and at a lower power draw.
I'm also using this for a home server. Going to use Ubuntu Server with Webmin as the management console. Comes with a small fan but I'm not going to use it. Wanted to have a 24hr box so I decided to try this APU.
This review was modfied by poster @ 09-08-11 08:45 PM
I bought this motherboard and put it in an antec 300 to use as a windows home server. It runs well and is dead silent (though I do have the two case fans running - which is probably overkill for cooling). I was putting in a sata pci card and it was near impossible to fit it into the pci slots though as it was SOOO tight. I need to try another card to see if it was just the card itself or if it was perhaps the motherboard slots. I had an old PSU blow on another computer on the same UPS yesterday and the anti-surge on the motherboard protected it from damage (I was a little surprised that it experienced a surge though).
