@hammerhead np! that’s the reason I had it spare unfortunately, but it did look like new old chipset stock X99 motherboards were starting to pop up when I sent it off!
@hammerhead the way the motherboard failed corroded its VRM heat sinks, which made me concerned the CPU may have been damaged in some subtle way that I can’t check (they also weren’t going for quite that much just a couple months ago o.o)
