A cheap made in China single AMD Opteront G34 motherboard, I have zero use for it but it is pretty interesting.

For AMD X89 Motherboard Mainboard DDR3 AMD Opteron G34 series CPU Support mSata | eBay

$81.98 WITH a cpu cooler.

X89? I guess its right in the middle of X79 and X99.:D

It even comes with a weird cpu heatsink and fan assy.

I know that some 16 core opterons are cheap so it might be fun to play around with for those that still have Opterons hidden away in a box or drawer.:D

I thought I added it. LOL

Added the link.

I always find oddball computer hardware interesting especially if it fills a unusual or up to now unused niche.

This is a cool way to use probably otherwise unused old hardware.

Oh and for those that say there are cheaper alternative used boards, yes they are but those used boards are getting up in age and I have never had real good luck with used boards.
