Compatibility question: X99 Dual CPU Motherboard Set LGA 2011-3 CPU DDR4 Motherboard & i7 5820k?

So I murdered my beloved Asus x99-deluxe by apparently creating a short-circuit and – not specifically due to SARS-CoV-2019 btw. – am pretty much broke. 

This rearranged Dual CPU motherboard sounds like a fun alternative for me 

– I mean no WiFi/Bluetooth which sucks and no 2 LAN ports and shitty sound 😞 – since it would feel better than having to buy a weaker board than what I had in the beginning,

without the coolness factor of an at least "kind-of-upgrade"... 


Now I have to figure out three things, that I can't find anywhere about this motherboard X99 Dual CPU Motherboard Set LGA 2011-3 CPU DDR4 Motherboard : https://www.ebay.de/itm/324616877087?hash=item4b94ac741f:m:mb3xpPOc73zOHHha2iCFDbg

  • Can it use consumer x99 CPUs (i.e. 2x i7 5820k)? It says x99 but I am sure it's actually a server chipset... 
  • Do my 8x HyperX Fury DDR4 sticks work with it?
  • Can I somehow add WiFi/Bluetooth affordably to one of the m.2 slots?
  • Does it really have USB 3.0 pins and USB 2.0 pins as it's stated in it's description?
  • Does it have clean IOMMU groups for VFIO? It is one of the things I needed in my rig because I have a NVDIA gpu I passed through to a Windows VM and I accessed it with looking-glass, which is something I would like to be able to still do... 

    I hope someone can help me with some of those. 

Cheers from someone who ALWAYS manages to break his own hardware

I concur. 


I think you're right. The text is basically the same, but the English one you posted here is higher quality.  

But my main question still isn't answered to my satisfaction 😃

Do we think this board would boot with an i7 5820k (or 2) – Haswell-E – since that is technically also x99 on a 2011-3? 

Anyone wants to wager a guess? It is slightly to expensive to just by it and try "for the lulz" for me. 😞
