A small portable development rig, aiming to maximize Linux compatibility.
Corsair Link doesn't work on Linux, but is usable through virtualbox, and I'm attempting to reverse engineer it and write a small hid library to interact with it.
The networking card isn't supported by broadcom yet, but it works with their wl driver in abg mode, and hopefully will be supported in full eventually.
I have an external USB 3.0 hard drive that will run but doesn't show up in udev from the front panel usb 3.0 ports. My USB 3 flash drive works though, so I think it might just be too little power in the splitter. The drive works on the ample back panel 3.0 ports, though.
The board runs gangbusters though, 60w idle 150w load, the ssd is great and you can iso flash it. I updated the bios via a usb drive easily, fan profiles are available in the bios and all the sensors show up in lm_sensors. The default corsair profile is a good balance anyway and doesn't really need tweaking, and if I wanted I could install the fan headers directly on the board and use the uefi fan controls anyway.
This thing is never worth it. The thermal performance usually underperforms the stronger 12cm air coolers for a ridiculous price, and the primary argument for using an AIO - ease of installation - is barely a factor anymore since coolers like the H7 are super simple to install and pervasively compatible.
