I personally am a big fan of old workstation mobo's, but this isn't the best choise. take a look into some more of them with maybe even a unlocked multiplier. as for the aliexpress one, not my choise to go sketchy

A real X79 isn't an option as they are very expensive (at least where i'm located), but also the HP mobo can be overclocked via the multiplier, but you cannot disable the tdp cap.

 

The china mobo can only be overclocked to the max turbo frequency (on all cores)

You're not getting that much bang for the buck here. Do you NEED the Xeon and subsequent DDR3 ECC Reg support on this platform more than anything else?

I think the bang for the buck is pretty good, i wouldn't know what would be equally as good and had a lower price.

A few YouTubers including craft computing and tech yes city have featured these AliExpress x58 and x79 boards. They work fine and for the price with a cheap Xeon and sit cheap ECC registered ram tey will have amazing bang for the buck.
