    looks like the only boards that supports rdimm are the one with the c602 chipset. I think gigabyte has one in Gigabyte X79S-UP5?

    All the asus p9x79 (including the WS ver) cannot use any rdimm since they all use the x79 and not the c60x chipset ;(, only udimm. I confirmed this personally

    That is one of the big advantage of cheap chinese x79 boards is that they use the c602 chipset which allows for use of rdimm ram....

    I am getting the gigabyte x79S -UP5-wifi soon. hopefully that will be the board that meets all the criteria....

    The other one is the SM X9SRA

    Hello,
    New member here. I just bought the x79 VB10, which the manufacture says, has 2 x PCI-e x16, 2 x PCI-e x8.
    I also thought x8/x8/x8/x8 should be possible.
    I tried manual PCIE configurations in the BIOS, however, only black lanes are keep working at x16.

    Have you tried configuring it too?
    Since I only needed 4 cards to work, x8/x8/x8/x8 would be perfect for me.

    Thanks in advanced.

    No one has been able to get all four of the x16 to work at the same time..... The only plus to this board compared to most of the other chinese board is the fact that 128gb ram is possible and have been confirmed by me and several other.... other than that, it's the same as the others including the fact of no S3 sleep support and also the fact of only having two x16 working even though it has four physical x16 slots.

    Yeah, my setup is also with 128GB RAM.
    Mine is Huanan clone/variant. They called it x79 VB10 version and labeled as Runing.

    I never expected these chinese board to work in x16/x16/x16/x16 configuration. I bought that board because, somewhere on the internet, I found that x8/x8/x8/x8 configuration is tested on that four x16 slots. I am so dumb to not bookmark it and now stuck with this. I thought it would be simple.
    Thanks for the reply.

    very disappointingly, the gigabyte x79s-up5-wifi I got was ver 1.0 so did not work with v2 cpu. only v1.1 does.... furthermore it didn't boot when I had 16gb rdimm modules installed thus negating any expected benefit I was hoping for with the c606 chipset.....

    now only the SM X9SRA left to test

    I found my weapon of choice for a do it all 2011 v2 board!:

    Supermicro x9sra

    This is the only board to meet these criteria:

    s3 sleep under win10,
    8 ram slots with support for udimm, rdimm, lrdimm
    support for oem cpu like 2696 v2 as well as i7 (i7 only works with udimm)
    at least 2x pcie x16 working together...

    it's not $120 like cheap chinese board but it has a lot more stuffs

    Here's a X9SRA for probably around$170 after shipping included. shipping is about $50 but it's international 3days.... it's on yahoo.jp. you can use any of those proxy bid. i use buyee which you only need a paypal acc and you don't have to have any advance deposit. The current price on yahoo.jp for this is better than ebay even after factor in the high ship cost.

    Supermicro X9SRA ATXマザーボード LGA2011 Intel C602 クーラー付 管81066-2 /【Buyee】 "Buyee" Japan Shopping Service | Buy from Yahoo! Buy from Japan!

    There are a lot to like about it as i discussed. I haven't found any other 2011 v2 boards with all the above criteria beside this one...

    I also own X10SRA and it's also a good cheaper 2011 v3/4 board if anyone wants that. does work with ES cpu. i tested it with QHUZ

    hmm, a little premature in endorsing the X9SRA. i am not getting sleep resume working now i tried a different cpu..I ran a bunch of benchmark, everything is stable as the computer never crash... but just resume from s3 sleep just not working on some of the cpu. not sure what's the deal... will post back again....

    A new Chinese x79 Mobo has been released: PlexHD x79 Turbo. There's little to no information on the board currently, but it looks like a few Russian's have been purchasing the board.

    [​IMG]

    Differences from HUANAN v2.49:
    - One extra PCI-E x16 slot (unsure of the speed)
    - Diagnostic card & Power switch keys/buttons on mobo
    - Ambient LED
    - Better orientation for power adapters, although I'm unsure of the need for the "GFX12V" 6pin adapter on the mobo

    Store #1) PLEXHD X79 Turbo motherboard LGA2011 ATX USB3.0 SATA3 PCI E NVME M.2 SSD support REG ECC memory and Xeon E5 processor-in Motherboards from Computer & Office on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group
    Store #2) For Intel planform desktop motherboard new X79 board LGA 2011 CPU support 64GB DDR3 REG ECC server memory boards x 79 -in Motherboards from Computer & Office on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

    I contacted both sellers asking for a spec sheet 3 days ago and will probably never receive a reply.

    98% sure it's for realsies. It looks like a better iteration of the v2.49 which has a working NVMe slot.

    The Runing x79z was a shitshow. I had such high expectations for it, but it fell flat on its face.

    yeah, the only thing that is positive for the runing is that it has 8 dimm slots so it's the only chinese one that will get up to 128gb. i dont know if anyone has tested out to see if any of these chinese boards can use 32gb rdimm. i don't think any of them can use lrdimm but if lrdimm or 32gb rdimm hasn't been tested on these, maybe someone can?

    Thinking about ordering the PlexHD. It seems that most of these X79 motherboard don't actually support RDIMM, only UDIMM even though they claim "ECC" support. This listing specifically states "REG ECC" memory.
    Anyone want to take a guess or have any information as to whether this is true?
    I have a ton of DDR ECC RDIMM but very few UDIMM and don't relish paying the price for more UDIMMs...
