Default BCN's Russian Ties! Supermicro P6DGS Build

Proof that BCN has ties to Russia!! There better be an investigation!

I lowballed the Ukrainian seller of this board, as it was a risky, would it even get here....and two, would it even work....the seller was unable to test it and had no idea....which is probably why he accepted my silly lowball offer. Not only did it arrive 12 days earlier than predicted, it also worked. Good gamble!

Test CPU's right after updating the BIOS to the latest. It had 1.0 on it (first release). It's now 3.1.....

Only damage I noticed was one memory slot latch was didn't affect function at all. Caps appear ok....but it has a bunch of those weird/fake NRSY caps that Supermicro was known to use back in those days.

Uhh ohh....From Russia with love, but Made in the USA? hmmmm

Testing functions, no issues....that's as far as I've gotten.

More as this build develops.
