Would this Via Nano motherboard make a good file server? Tags: Motherboards SATA File Server Last response: July 31, 2008 12:45 PM in Motherboards Share teeth_03 July 31, 2008 3:20:25 AM http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=597 the motherboard on the first page. I know the article says it is just a reference board, but the one it shows has a CompactFlash Adapter and 4 SATA ports. Wouldnt it be nice to install the OS to like an 8 or 16 gig CF card,then hook up 4 SATA drives for storage? (tho good luck finding a right case for that...)... I wondering if the system itself would be too slow,even for a home file server tho.
