There was a need to refresh the PC. It is utilized for video altering. A 4-center Intel Core i5 and 16 GB of RAM were sufficiently not. In addition, the 120 GB SSD was continually stacked. We thought to buy Core i7 initially, yet one companion encouraged us to check out the new Xeon processors on AliExpress. It was the reason for wariness to buy PC on Aliexpress. No one can tell what could you get from Chinese provider. Yet, we were guaranteed that the dealer is demonstrated and various parts have been taken more than once, and there are no issues. The costs are modest, and the equipment works impeccably.
So, we solved to order a huananzhi X79 server motherboard, Intel Xeon E5 2690 processor, Kllisre DDR3 server memory with two 16 GB slats and a 360 GB KingSpec SSD. The goods were delivered within a month. We unpacked it, tied, installed Windows and other soft. When everything was ready we started tests.
All product links you will find in the end of the article.
The motherboard is completely new from a Chinese vendor, and it is little-known in our country. It cost about $ 100 (now it costs even less), and that is really cheap for such models of motherboard. It works on a 2011 LGA socket with DDR3 memory. Other characteristics you can find on the good page.
The good was sold more than 4,000 times and its rating is 4.9. This is a very high rating when you consider that 99% of users left good reviews. Sure, It happens in 1% of cases, that you can get a defective good, but we solved that the chance of it is extremely small and we have bought it. Unfortunately, this 1% fell on us, because the rest of my friends, who bought goods here, had no problems at all. The defect is not fatal, but that has occur.
Two memory openings out of four don’t work by any means. You embed RAM there, and the PC doesn’t distinguish it. We kept in touch with the merchant, he encouraged us to wipe the contacts. Contacts cleaned. Also, we tackled for good measure to actually take a look at the legs under the processor. Everything was ordinary. Further, the vender said that the issue is effectively settled in any assistance place, and the maintenance will cost close to 20 dollars. He returned the sum. We addressed to live with the imperfection and didn’t go to the help. The explanation is that the closest one is in another city. There were 2 bars memory of 16, and we settled that 32 is sufficient for the occasion, we will endure.
Something else, there are no issues. The item arrived in a container, perfectly pressed, and not harmed. One of the dealer’s conditions was to tape the unloading of the motherboard without a doubt that in case there are issues, it has happen not while unloading. The video was taken, and it, as the circumstance showed, proved to be useful. It’s somewhat of a disgrace that there is such a deformity, however you can’t buy a worker stable working motherboard for$ 80 elsewhere. That is the reason we didn’t stress over it for quite a while.
Due to the fact that the other buyers did not have any problems, you can safely take it. Defects are also found when buying in regular stores from well-known brands.
The processor also cost about a hundred dollars. This is the original Intel, no forgery. It is so cheap because it is used before. When these processors have been used in data centers for several years, they are removed and put up for sale. We have got it neatly packed, without chipping or visible damage. The good works stable even today. At the end of the article there will be a link to a good thermal paste to it.
Rendering speed has increased 1.5-2 times. This is very noticeable when it is necessary to work every day. The Cinebench shows about 2,300. That is quite a good result, especially if you remember how much it costs.
We solved to purchase two bars with 1333 MHz in order to accelerate to 1866. And there is no need to pay more. Overclocking was successful and it works steadily.
This memory is created only for server motherboards, do not forget if you solved to purchase it.
We didn’t confide in to Chinese SSD producers and the answer for buy was attached with our companions’ recommendation. In this way, we have introduced it to the PC, introduced Windows and different projects. All is great. All clients mark that tests show 500 MB/s of peruse and compose speed. We quickly neglected to do the tests, we did it following a while of utilization. In this way, the outcome is the accompanying: perusing is over 500 MB/sec, yet composing is only 88 MB/sec. Perhaps on the grounds that the plate is now stacked and different applications are open. It’s hard to say. This doesn’t influence the speed of work, everything begins rapidly.
There were no problems since the purchase. Surprisingly, such devices from China can be trusted. If you need a solid-state computer for the operating system and software, then take goods from the manufacturer. If you want to keep large files and work with them, then look for specialized models. That is so because KingSpec’s speed with large files is already slowing down. Its chip wasn’t designed for this.
Everything works perfectly, the increase in video rendering appeared in 1.5-2 times. It became much more convenient to mount heavy files in Davinci in real time. We use the system more than 4 months, there are no failures. There is a problem with memory slots, but if you consider that the entire configuration cost less than$ 300, then it is generally a sin to complain. A similar build capacity from our familiar manufacturers will cost at least $ 1,000, and you will get the same quality of work. That is a great chance to save money and get everything you need.
Anyone who has had more experience of buying Chinese PC, write in the comments. It is always interesting to read about it.
