I actually own one of these paired with Xeon E5-2650. Not that bad for a workstation, but several ACPI issues, poor CPU power lane design and cheap heatsinks are just a top of an iceberg. Certainly, not too great for someone who expects a motherboard to just work, otherwise, it might be a good deal. Also, it works well in homelab-grade DIY servers — it supports ECC RAM, and Xeon are literally server CPUs.

Gee, why wouldn't a company tell everyone how they are able to make complete motherboards that are no longer in production? Scratches head and takes a drink. Can't figure it out. Oh well.

You can buy these on aliexpress under the name Huanan. It has been showcased on other channels before. From what I remember they use C602 server chipsets.

Should have tested it with a Xeon E5-1680v2 - 8 Core/16 thread, 20mb cache as its a cut down 10 Core Xeon rather than a Hex Core with extra cores which also means it uses the bigger Xeon cores.

Mines sitting right now as I type this in my Rampage IV Extreme at 4.7Ghz All Core under water.

You CAN put a M.2 Adapter Card in and use it without mods just not as a boot drive but a simple BIOS mod (or just download a premodded one) and you can solve that in about 5 mins. Im using a Samsung 960 Pro to boot the computer I'm typing this one. I also have the RST module from X299 modded in as well.

$100 for a chinese salvaged motherboard? Sounds like you got baited by a mastu... master.

Personally I would do some packet captures to see if it's sending extra data somewhere it shouldn't be.
