Linus Tech Tips looks at the Jingsha

Luckily for them, they had far better luck than I did. I’m using the same processor, the E5-2667 v2, which I had paid 1080RMB each (155 USD) for, although I did get the board for 650RMB (93 USD). So I have a better buyer, but I had no luck with the board.

The processors and RAM work fine in the older Huananzhi, so at least I know those work.

And since rebuilding the machine, I’ve had 10 days of uptime now in this configuration, so it defiantly works in the non Jingsha board.

And yeah for the heck of it, here it is running Cinebench R15 with a score of 2521, and using all cores, all threads. But as a limitation of Xeons of the time is no real turbo, as when it’s running it’ll go to 3.6Ghz, but it’ll happily idle once completed in the 1.x range.

  1. I know pretty much every motherboard (save for the Raptor Computing boards) seems to be made in China these days, and probably in the same factory, but buying these Chinese market boards still makes me uneasy. It’s probably not a justifiable fear, but still.

  2. Outside of the Jingsha I’ve had pretty good luck. I was originally really skeptical, but so far so good. I ordered some super cheap boards for general office machines, and they are working just fine. I’d probably say the ‘matched kits’ are probably the safer way to go as they are matched.

    To Jingsha’s credit it did post, its not like it didn’t catch fire… Mechanically they seem okay-ish.
