cool! yeah, def think I will get one right now just bc they look so cheap before they start to head back up. The other day I saw a tyan s7012 x58 dual cpu slots going for $50 shipping for free. wish I picked up one. now its back to close to $100 shipped.

so getting back to x99, I guess support for ECC is not guaranteed on every one?
ECC is mostly not the problem. server ECC RAM is registered/buffered, and mostly not supported
by the motherboard. If you have a Xeon on a ASRock x99 mobo ecc UDIMM(unbuffered) will
work with ECC correction.
registered ECC will work without the server ECC functionality(no reporting ECC errors in LOG files)
in example Gigybyte x99 supports only 8 bit organized DIMM, mostly ECC RDIMM is 1Rx4 bits,
the DIMM slots are NOT full wired on Gigabyte.
On more reason for ASRock is the support for early Engineering samples.

the 2011-0 chips are very cheap because they get retired from servers. the chinese manuf. have 1000's of PCH chips laying arround, so why not use them. the so called "clone x79" boards have not a real x79 soldered.
i got a small mainboard that can hold all sandy/ivy-bridge lga2011 cpu, look, it's a tiny one ;)

I still haven't decided on which version to get for the E5-2643 cpu I have to build a gaming pc for one of my kids.

Oh and the motherboard 24 pin connector placement is LOL

these are hard to find on ebay, i found it on taobao but bought it with help from my chinese supplier.
most of these board missing the USB3.0 chip and connector, so ask for it !
C602/X79 motherboard
because of the small size the 24 pin ATX conn. is (mis)placed, imho not a problem.

for a gaming pc you better take a board with quadchannel support(not all moards with 4 dimm slots have quad-channel). this one is cheap on ebay, quiet same manuf. than the small one.

The games that will be played are not super intense, Minecraft, The Sims ect.

So I am not needed the bleeding edge, just good enough and cheap.

Will probably use a GTX 960 or GTX 970.

A couple of sticks of 8 gig DDR 3 ecc ram, some sort of decent size ssd and a very good pci sound card.

I have everything already just need a motherboard.

how much are you spending on that micro Chinese x79 mb? given how limited it is. I would not pay more than $100.

if you were going to pay around $180, I would recommend a Lenovo s30 MB like one of these:

Lenovo Thinkstation S30 Motherboard X79 Rev 2.0 E5-2600V2 Compatible + IO-Shield | eBay

get the socrate v2 if you want to be able to use 2011 v2 or get the slightly cheaper v1 if you only want to run 2011 v1. boot block not upgradable.
this mb has proper 8 ram slots and lots of pci e as well as a legacy pci slot. sadly, the pci e slots are not GeForce sli compatible, only quadro sli compatible.

if size is not a matter i would go with the s30(but it is not new)

look at ebay for similar...
example source

i pay'd $75(+ship) dollar for my tiny motherboard, but you have to use an "agent" for buying at taobao.

Board sleep appears is restricted to S1 sleep... this is what I can expect in win10.

My bios screen is the same as of earlier date. Did you also get s1 sleep by any chance? When I bought the device from XFURBISH, they offered support to ensure a smooth flow of operations for a long time. They are fair in terms of cost and support options.

Xfurbish is found in 4 countries and looking forward to expanding in more countries
Look for refurbished products in UAE.
Look for refurbished products in USA.
Look for refurbished products in India.
Look for refurbished products in Nigeria.
