I need to setup FreeNas Server, So I follw this freenas setup and collect all the Hardware Details,

What They Used:

    Motherboard       BOXDQ45EK LGA 775
    Processor         Pentium E2160 processor
    Heatsink /fan     Fanner-420 heatsink/fan made by MassCool

    Power supply      400W Rosewill RD400-2-DB
    Hard Drive        1TB WD10EZRX
    Ups               CyberPower CP1000AVRLCD UPS
    Case              PC-Q11B from Lian Li

But, They used Some Older versions Hardware's, so I try to find out New One Based on our Older Requirement.

I collected Hardware:

    Motherboard       Intel BOXDP67BGB3 Socket 1155, Intel P67, CrossFireX & SLI, SATA3&USB3.0, A&GbE, ATX Motherboard 
    Processor         Intel Core i5-3570K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 GHz 4 Core LGA 1155 - BX80637I53570K 
    Ram               Kingston -1600MHZ_PC3 (4GB)
    Hard Drive        WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch -                 WD1003FZEX 

    Power supply      Rosewill ATX 12V 750-Watt 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Power Supply Hive-750 

    Heatsink /fan     MASSCOOL Fanner-420 Thermal Grease Cooling (FANNER-420) 

    Case             Lian-Li PC-Q11B Lian-Li Case PC-Q11B Mini Tower 1-0-2 FAN Aluminum USB 3.0 Black Mini-ITX 

My Questions Are:

1. This Mother-Board(Intel BOXDP67BGB3 Socket 1155, Intel P67, CrossFireX & SLI, SATA3&USB3.0, A&GbE, ATX Motherboard) can Support FreeBSD Linux?

    You want to build a FreeNAS Server? Do you have any other requirements besides OS? Because all x86 and x86_64 systems support FreeBSD – timuzhti Nov 18 '16 at 8:36

I've seen people use that board so it does work. I don't have any experience with it so I can't tell you how "plug-and-play" it is.

Your motherboard and your processor don't match though, so you will be unable to use that hardware together.

  • @Rajkumar.E Yes, the P67 chipset on the motherboard supports that CPU. There should be no problems at all. Maybe you should edit the question. – Christian B Nov 18 '16 at 9:20
