Planning to build my first pfSense router, looking for a mini ITX motherboard to suit a 4th gen or 6th/7th gen i5 CPU (I already have RAM and a 4 port Gigabit interface, and probably a CPU)

Located in Palmerston North, ideally somewhere local but happy to pay for shipping if need be.

As nice as that is, it's a bit overboard for what I need. Thanks though!

I've got a Gigabyte H97N-WIFI mini ITX with a 4th gen i3 CPU on it and 8GB DDR3 RAM.


The board has dual GB LAN ports so perfect for pfsense. :)


I too would like to sell it all together as a working setup.


$250 plus shipping from Oamaru.

Once again thanks for the offer, but I have actually just this minute managed to find a 2nd gen board to go with a CPU and RAM I have lying around!
