          Hi Linus , here in brazil a lot of people is using this motherboard with a Xeon E5 2690 v2 with 32gb ddr3 ram and SSDs, is a good plataform for multitasking and is really cheap and in some models MAXSUN and KLLISRE you can do a little overclock

            To all the haters of that girl, I bet you can't even say "Yes" in Chinese without googling it... :) If you were asked the same question in Chinese, you'd probably answer "uh huh..."

              The ASRock 775i65g R3.0 motherboard is sort of related to this. It was released in 2012, but uses the Intel 865G chipset from 2003. They must have been using new old stock chipsets. It's a weird Frankenstein motherboard, because 865G was also one of Intel's last chipsets to have Windows 98 drivers. It supports Wolfdale Core 2 Duo processors, so this makes it one of the fastest ways to natively run Windows 98.

                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.

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

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.
