I miss the aesthetics of that generation of boards. Simple but effective heatpipe cooling for PCH + VRMs versus the form over function stuff these days.

yeah when i opened i up i forgot how silly the ws ceb boards were i love the look and she has come chonk to her, fired it up on test bench, these are oem versions of the original Asus P9x79 WS they added Ipmi port and suprisingly locked ai tweaker in bios with password no one can get , only option is a modded bios that will unlock it and add nvme support. but it will be like finding the white whale/Unicorn

Quick update this build is DOA these boards seem to be worse than the Ali exspress x79 boards this won't even get past bios. CPU fan error system halts Evey other reboot. The money I get from a refund I'll buy the Ali exspress x79 boards.
