Topton “N5105/N6005 NAS board” is a mini-ITX motherboard powered by an Intel Celeron N5105 or N6005 Jasper Lake processor, equipped with six SATA 3.0 ports, two M.2 NVMe sockets, and four Intel i226-V 2.5GbE controllers.
The board also comes with two SO-DIMM DDR4 slots for up to 64GB RAM, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort video outputs, and several USB 3.0/2.0 interfaces. As its name implies, it is designed for network access storage (NAS), but I could also see it used as a networked video recorder (NVR), a network appliance, or a multi-purpose machine.

The company will install Windows 10 Pro by default when ordered with storage and memory, but users can also request Windows 11 Pro. A system ordered with less than 32GB RAM will only come with one memory stick, so no dual-channel memory.
Topton also highlights that Intel i226-V is a new network controller and operating systems like pfSense may not include a compatible driver yet, and they ask users not to open a dispute in case of such (operating) system issue.
Topton “N5105/N6005 NAS” Jasper Lake mini-ITX motherboard is sold for $195.76 to $472.18 depending on the selected processor, and memory & storage capacities.
