This Chinese Motherboard Shows Intel LIED...

The H310C chipset is a 22nm edition of the H310 chipset. 

All 100, 200 and 300 series motherboards can support skylake, Kabylake and Coffeelake CPUs, with modified BIOS and CPU Microcodes. There’re only minor differences in pin layouts between the LGA1151 from skylake/kabylake and the one from coffeelake, only 2 more pins are utilized for power delivery.  You can run a quad core 8th gen CPU like the i3 8100 with only the BIOS modification on a 100 or 200 series motherboard, but if you wish to use 6-or-8-core CPUs with 100/200 series motherboard, you’ll need to disable the two pins (and possibly a few other pins according to the design of your motherboard, because some brands have unused pins attached to power as well) with tapes, or else the current on those 2 pins WILL DAMAGE the board. A high quality old board is better for this purpose, because 6-and-8-core CPUs do consume more power. Because manufacturers didn’t test newer CPUs on old boards, CPU voltage might be a little higher than expected, but you can adjust it manually.

We need a full PC build with cheap Chinese-exclusive (Intel E6500K, AMD RX 470D, GTX 1060 5GB) or strange parts (BGA to LGA CPU, forward-compatible H110 board) from China.

Actually I'm building one right now. Just waiting for the parts to arrive.

That would involve them actually taking time to investigate and test products for more than an hour and a half. That shit went out the window when they decided to just pump numerous videos out every day, quantity over quality or something like that xD

Doesn't Linus pay his staff to do that? kind of makes him look technically challenged otherwise. Reminds me when they didn't overclock their Chinese 4720HQ and said it was locked.

AWOL

I don't know about earlier LTT videos, but the ones from last year (when I started watching some of them) on up, have been lazy, sloppy, and sometimes downright wrong. It's like he lost interest in being informative and careful, and has gone to just futzing around for ~10 minutes about whatever is on his mind, whether it's on topic or not. Quite unprofessional, which is just one of the reasons I rarely watch his videos. Not to mention some of the referral links in his videos are incorrect as well. There are better tech reviewers out there these days.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

What is the maximum ram? 2x16GB ECC? More?

just wanted to quote a chinese guys youtube comment that claims to have experience with these.

"kenny so 

Dear linus, I'm KENNY, a budget gaming PC builder in HK, and im always working around with chinese MB, yours is not the most unthinkable chinese MB I've been working with, chinese MB on LGA1151 are much more then you can imagine, and actually the one you're playing with was not meant to work with high end CPU like 8700k, it's meant for budget PC with a i3 8100, g4560, G5400 with ECC REG DDR3 (yes, your board dose support) since they are as cheap as rubbish in China, the reason you can't get the full power out of your CPU is because you haven't run through your BIOS yet, all the power control value has to be manually config manually to make your cpu turbo up in the right way, if your are not tuning it right, only one of the 6 cores will turbo up to the right speed. thats how you lost your CPU performance, you can make it right in BIOS or through INTEL XTU. And about Intel lied....Actually they do, i'm sure what they've done is just changed the microcode the make your MB unable to recognize older CPUs , the truth is we've found out all 100,200,300 chipsets can support through all 4 generations of 6,7,8 and 9 with a simple bios MOD, not only chinese MB can do that, just add in the microcode of the generation of the cpu you want, even a h110 can perfectly support a 9900k, and a z390 can run a 6700k, and we've also seen some chinese geeks had a breakthrough to run a Xeon E-2186G on a Z170 motherboard. The home gaming ITX rig i'm using myself, is using a i7 9700K engineering sample with a ASUS Z170i PRO GAMING, and it worked just fine with a GTX 1080Ti and DDR4 3000 and even overclockable... because In HK 100 and 200 MB are dirt cheap, like around US$15~US$20 to get a perfect condition 2nd handed ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, ASROCK....etc And also because we HK buyer wont have to pay extra transport fee to get those cheap server retired ECC RAM and cheap CPUs form taobao and aliexpress, I3 8100 and i5 8400 on a h110 and b150 MB become one of my best choice besides X79 and Lga 1156 to build budget gaming PCs with. thats why i'm always messing with all those bios adding in the CPU microcode i needed, So I'm pretty sure with this~ you just search online and you can easily find packed microcode module to add into EFI bios, its just as simple as adding a NVMe support to 2~4 gen MB, And BTW, almost every DDR3 MB can do ECC REG support too, also a little mod of the BIOS will do....

I'm just going to quote myself from @Princess Cadence's topic on this because now that people outside of the forum knows of this motherboard, people will be asking this:

Quoting another Chinese commentor on the video: from

The limitation is not DDR3, 8700K on this board is limited by power (up to 65W maby). 6C cpu can't get full turbo boost on it , you need XTU to remove that limitation (newer bios may also works). If you put an 8100 on it, the performance will be very very close .

Going by the people that have gotten Coffee Lake working on Z170, this isn't that much of a surprise.

Would love to see like an Aliexpress computer or Chinese-branded PC made with these sorts of products.

Because DDR3 ram is much cheaper than ddr4, especially in China. And this is a H310C board which is a budget motherboard...

But how does it cost more for the motherboard to have DDR4 support if the chipset already supports DDR4?

i was actually disappointed in how linus acted....first ...shocked acting...oh look at the size and compared it to atx a matx..um hello have you ever heard of itx? then didnt even look at any bios setting BUT memory speed...really? in all honesty it made linus look pretty damn stupid, especially the whole mobo size thing

I mean if the user can use ddr3 ram in his new system with this H310C, he will save a lot.

I've had a similar i3-8100 build for about a year now and man gotta say the ECC DDR3 RAM works like a charm on these boards. Same amount of RAM at 1/4 of the price of a DDR4.

 

Was deciding between the ONDA H310C or Biostar H110MD. But went with the Biostar instead lol. Was gonna get an EX-B150M-V5 D3 but I cheaped out and I regretted lol.  

 

The release of these board / bios mods made the OEM i3-8100 increase in price by like 30%, but still cheaper than retail versions.

Is there any newer motherboards with 4 slots for DDR3?
