What motherboard is this?

Im currently upgrading to a i7 3930k. And im not sure if this motherboard will work for this CPU and my ram. Im currently planning to use ddr3 2400mhz hyper savage ram in 4x4gb sticks. Is this motherboard capable with this?

    too small the picture, hard to know with just the picture

    i did a small search for some information seen on the picture

    it is a oem generic manufacturer from china, sort of no brand manufacturer mainboard, in china and asia in general there is many manufacturers like this, some good, other no idea, we never see their products on america or europe

    look at this other offer, almost exactly the same model

    http://www.ebay.es/itm/Intel-X79-ATX-Motherboard-Socket-R-LGA-2011-PCIe-DDR3-CrossFireX-USB-3-0-SATA3-/131967555529?hash=item1eb9e117c9:g:AR8AAOSwzqFY~FE5

    looks very similar, colors, heatsinks, socket cover

    it says hua nan, a chinese manufacturer

    looks decent, but no idea on the warranty

    if you search for that in aliexpress you will find lots of them, same colors and shapes, one is practically identicall but doesn't have the heatsinks over the vrm area

    is there a website for the motherboard so that i can download the latest bios etc. and will it support a i7 3930k and my hyper savage 2400mhz ram?

  3. hua nan, assuming it is the oem manufacturer, should have some sort of site, but is a sort of oem mixed with clone manufacturer

    i wouldn't have high hopes on it about quality and support, a quick search on google offered nothing usable, perhaps with patience you can find something more usable

    seems to me like the "huanan" X79 Motherboards only support Xeon Processors according to UserBenchmark

  5. but we are not 100% sure about if it is a hua nan lga 2011, it looks like it is

    as you see with this oem vendors no name boards and no idea what they can do is complicted to deal with them, the price is great but no idea if it will work :/

    i mean, its 2017. the X79 lga 2011 motherboards shouldn't be expensive. since there are so many newer CPUs and motherboards around. i would just buy a R5 1600X but ive got DDR3 Ram that i payed quite alot for so i dont really want to buy new ram. and i dont really want a 4c 8c i7 since a 4c 4t CPU is now become the bare minimum for gaming. pegged at 100% in alot of new games under load, bottlenecking my GPU. hence the upgrade.

    i didnt read the description last time, but it mentions this: 【Basic information】:Chipset:INTEL X79. Form Factor:ATX 28cm x 22cm. CPU Socket:Intel LGA2011 Supports Intel Core I7(sandy bridge-E) 1800mHZ, 2133mHz processor, supports all LGA2011 CPU.
    【I/O FEATURES】8 x USB3.0 slots, compatible to USB2.0.
    【One year warranty】Order with confidence. We provide one year warranty, life time tech support & free shipping. Simply contact us if you have any problems of your purchase.
    【New PC builder friendly】The installation is very easy, just follow the user guide to finish it. You can finish installation within minutes even if this is your first time to build PC.
    【Memory Socket】 Support DDR3 1066/1333/1600, dual DIMM. Provide 4 * 240PIN DDR3 slots, the single DDR3 supports 4GB max. For I/O features please refer to product description

    so it looks like it DOES Support a i7 3930K but it looks like my Ram will only clocked at 1600mhz. the only thing stopping me from buying it is that it might not overclock, which is a big no for me if it cant overclock. the guy in the review section said this: EDIT: Overclocking is in fact supported, but only by using the multiplier method, but that may be just my CPU (i7 3820, it can overclock but has a gimped multiplier). XMP still isnt enabled, and my 1600 mhz DDR3 gets lowered to 1333. Forcing the RAM speed back to 1600 is not functional, whereas on my old board, it defaulted to 1600. SLI is still not supported, and ran into a few blue-screens because of the wireless driver. (I uninstalled and reinstalled my wifi card driver, and it seems to be OK). Though expect to have a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA code if you just slap it in w/o reinstalling windows, which I have yet to do. On windows 10, you can insert the board w/o reinstalling, but I still recommend you to do so.

    so im not sure what to do. i need a cheap X79 Motherboard but it needs to overclock. otherwise its useless to me.

    below mother board to be supported to i7 3930k this processor

    Intel DX79SI
    Intel DX79SR
    Intel DX79TO


    dude the cheap motherboard that ive linked does support an i7 3xxx, a guy in the review section used an i7 3820 and it worked fine. the only problem being is if it can overclock.

  9. i think it can't but i could be wrong

    i would take this board purchase as a experiment, it could go well or go wrong, so be prepared in mboth economical and mental aspects! :D

    the chipset is a bit old and sort of special, could be old but doesn't mean it will be cheap, take as example those lga 771 sockets, other sockets for xeons, cpu is cheap and abundant but the mainboards are a whole different story

    well i bought it and shortly afterwards ended up returning it as it didnt support overclocking, locked my ram to 1333mhz when advertised supporting 1600mhz, PCIe slot was gen 2 x16 but advertised as gen 3 x16, and no fan controller. making my CPU and chassis fans run @100%.... tried speedfan didnt change anything. so back to the old FX 9320, 990FX combo untill i get another X79 Motherboard.
