At some point, I must have signed up for emails from AliExpress and they send emails to me regularly.
Well, the latest one got my attention. X79 motherboards from a manufacturer I had never heard of. They look new, and by that I mean they have features I would not expect on an X79 like an M.2 slot for instance. So these have been designed more recently.
I know what I spent back in 2012 for my Sandy-E rig and the 3039K . I have also checked how much secondhand X79 motherboards are going for on eBay.
They are offering a bundle, with RAM, cooler and a 10 core Zeon!
Thoughts? Looks intriguing to me. Would be ideal for an inexpensive Linux workstation. something to mess about with, lab not production.
I would love to see Wendel do a proper review of one of these oddball motherboards.
