I did a build using the asus x 79 motherboard from one of your videos but did not use all the components you used how ever i did use the 4960 cpu and two 980ti in sli i have the 34 in predator monitor overclocked to 80hz and all my games run flawlessly even the newer larger games am i thinking about upgrading with ryzin ot inteli9 i think not great video you showed that you realy dont have to have top of the line everything to get decent performance thankyou for you videos

Maybe test a Xeon E5-1680v2 on that motherboard?
The're getting cheap on ebay, and without voltage/bclk control a 4,2GHz 8 core with 25mb of cache and 4 channel 2133 MHz ddr3 memory would be very up to date and fall behind only the top clocked intel mainstream chips that cost a lot of money.

got that mobo myself a while ago, paired it with a e5 1660 v2 (160 usd) and oc it stable up to 4.2 - 4.4ghz. also a nvme for lightning fast boot speeds
worked like a charm, never crashed. mobo is made by huananzhi and they are arguably the best chinese brand in making motherboards in terms
of stability/performance/compatibility.

omg... Im running a 3930k and thats my bios....

Did anyone notice that in the BIOS it shows as ©2018 @ 13:40? Maybe that's why it's able to run an Nvme? I remember my old Crosshair formula V I had to mod the BIOS to be able to boot from an Nvme on a PCI-e Nvme adapter card so maybe they done something similar!

Bought a Jingsha X79 for $35 on eBay and paired with an E3-1650 V2 and 16gbs DDR3. The board is awesome, it works great and runs that Xeon perfectly.

Actually this motherboard should be used with pre-owned E5 processors and ecc memories.

The BIOS module for booting NVME is modular and can be added to any standard X79 BIOS if you know what you're doing, letting you use any cheap x4 adapter, so building it into the mobo isn't a giant "oh wow" IMHO.

My 4770k on a Asrock X79 board has been booting off NVME after a BIOS flash for a few years now. Really nice of them to include it though I'm wondering if it's making the x16 slots run as x4/x4/x4

Also saying "full featured" when talking about Asus is pure comedy. We all know they've been slopping out incompetent crap for years, coasting on reputation alone. See their X570 boards for proof.

China's like the middle finger to capitalist corporate decisions implementing limitations on products. Consumers shouldn't be denied access to technology or functionality due to politics or copyrights or just pure greedy corporate capitalism. If a product is technologically capable, it shouldn't be crippled artificially just so consumers have to pay more to access that functionality

Not sure if anyone cares, but this motherboard can handle Xeon E5 2697v2 (a bit faster than 4960X) that is the top of this line... (And it's priced halfed, a while ago, around 150 now, not 300 like it was couple of months ago)

Got nothing against recycling, but this is blatant pandering to western eco-sensibilities. You're not doing the planet any favors by buying Chinese spyware.

Look i can understand the language barrier honestly,i am from Europe,Romania to be precise,and i understand and write english almost to perfection(the normal perfection that a native american can reach that is),but when it comes to actual talking i can understand when someone talks to me perfectly or i can listen to an entire conversation in english and understand 100% of it,animes can teach you english yes XD,anyway the thing is,when it comes to actuall talking,even tho i do know english to as i said the normal perfection an native english speaker can reach,i just can't seem to talk very well,i know how to say the words i know what they mean and what i need to say and yet they don't come out properly,so i can understand her,i honestly do,but FFS the conversation was SOOOOOO goddamn cringy,as i said i know how it is to know a language as you know your native one but due to accents on different letters or different pronunciation(i think i butchered that) the words come out different than i want them too,still it was soooo so cringy,now i know the language barrier can be a thing,but honestly that convo seemed like she just didn't knew too much about PCs or at least about that board whatsoever,just sayin',i myself think i would've done a better job than her in that conversation,and i know that my english on paper is good when i actually talk using my own goddamn mouth my english is atrocious
