The comments are unsurprisingly 90% a mix of racism and misogyny. Good job white male nerds with crippling insecurity.

You can set Multiplier in CPU power management section. Max to 41x per core on a E5-1650V2.


Also, you can set Memory one step up on Mhz safely...say 1333 to 1600.

Oh man that board is ugly and brown. That's something I'm glad there's less of nowadays.

I honestly wouldn't trust what she says because that level of English isn't really acceptable if you are selling stuff "Yes, it can work for the game" xD.

china has a very strange way of building what they want. if they can't get a part or they can't make it or use parts taken from other things they will literally beg borrow and steal to get what they want made . most likely the chips IF they are genuine they were taken from boards that failed the manufacturer standards of the request company's that made them or are back stock . more then likely they are knock off chips made in china. the country has a very prolific chip counterfeiting system in place that can make any and all chips they need . the easy way to tell is check to see if it has been sanded off sanded chips are genuine. if they have a stamp on them check it on line to see if it matches anything genuine 9 time out of ten they don't match anything but the company's own PDF's that you can not get . I have had a long history with Chinese counterfeit chips anyone who works on or repairs electronics has the same problem.

Buying these off of AliExpress is quite popular in Australia. Some of them are quite good, especially the HUANAN brand. Get some registered ddr3 ram and an old xeon and you can get a quite powerful machine for not much at all. Check out a few Tech Yes City videos.

Its crazy you can put together some ghetto x79 and x99 builds with these Chinese boards. You can basically make a modern rig with some of the x99 ones they offer out there.

Next Challenge a dual socket x79 chinese motherboard and a low budget workstation from aliexpress

Actually the Asus X79 deluxe board does support booting from nvme on PCI-E slot, but only Windows 10 system. i.e. you can not boot Windows 7(or older) on an nvme drive sticked on PCI-E slot on this borad.
