New firewall Build !!

Just won a new mother board on ebay today. Supermicro MBD-A1SRI-2758F-O with the Atom C2758 8 core cpu. Ordered 16 gigs of DDR3 Ecc SoDimm memory for it, 2 x8 to get better channel speed. Not sure of what chassis I will end up with, maybe a Supermicro front panel 1u rack mount case & pcie – dual 10g port nic.

For now, i’ll just use a pair of 1gig nic’s on the board. I have Telus business Fibre @ home 1gig symmetrical internet.

I’ll post pictures of my build as I go. Parts have shipped, now to wait. Nice thing about SuperMicro Server boards, they have dedicated IMPI port’s so you can manage the board remotely.
