I build coreboot with Intel ME neutralized for Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2! This micro ATX board is from 2012 ~ 10+ years old board but still can be get for ~ 30-50 usd from ebay. After flashing the board with coreboot it start working with server Xeon processors! In my case i used Intel Xeon E3-1270 4 core 8 threads up to 3.8Ghz!

This kind of small cheap boards are perfect for TrueNAS, mini Home Server or just used as Router. And after Intel ME has been neutralized this make this board very secure device!
