Taobao is the ebay and Amazon of China. They actually have a fantastic return policy. If the product isn't as described you first ask the seller to fix it and if they refuse you can go through Taobao themselves and they will force the seller to refund and fix the transaction. It is actually a very trustworthy website specifically because of this return policy. Lots of fake stuff to be had but that's part of the fun haha.

ive got a little question for you. is it able to cool a pc with gallium instead of water? no aluminium, all copper and a variable control for the pump which is acting with a thermometer to measure the actual heat of the gallium till its molten? maybe the higher thickness of gallium instead of water could be a more efficient way to transport heat to the radiator

as they are of same architecture, mobile cpu have more pins than desktop ones may be because of more power pins, this is result of denser and smaller pins can transfer less power thus more pins are needed(even desktop cpu socket power pins are also populated). while it is mounted over a desktop socket adapter, power pins can be rearranged and grouped. meanwhile newer intel mobile cpus are SoC (mm... more accurately, SoP), besides the cpu core there would also be a PCH(and a dedicate GPU, like i9 8950HK). if anyone want to modify it for desktop, he or she need to reroute the DMI lanes to the socket, and let the pins from PCH on package omitted. it should be less pins (may be?)

I don't know how people are buying $600-$900 PCs and then worrying about the $10 that the CPU is gonna cost them to run.

hello guys,i want to ask everybody..can you please tell me my Xeon E5 1620 0 3,60Ghz processor compared to what is equivalent? some ppl told me it is like i7 second generation,but i want to know what you think...i am learning about these thing from a while...i am trying to make my own gaming system for a first time and i have made so much misstakes...i bought 2 systems that where not working so good...a video that was not good for Fallout 4 and now i bought Lenovo Workstation S30 for a good price and i want to know more about it...my brand new RX580 video is doing great job...i was having big problems with the SSDs..very slow but i fixed them with new SATA cables and unplugged all other DATA cables...i think if you have even 1 data or sata 3mb/s cable in your motherboard everything is working with that speed...that was what happened in my case...now with only 6gb/s cables and only 6gb/s SATA ports in use i have speeds 400++ mb/s and m.2 ssd via PCIe running with 750 write and 850 read speeds...sorry..i want to know the processor thing..i just cared away :)

Actually that is brilliant. Technically you could recycle old Laptop hardware and put it up on the used market for Desktops, to get some money out of them AND cut back on electronic waste. I like the idea. The Execution is a bit ruff, but I like the idea.

Let me tell you the truth. This CPU could not survive a full Linus Drop Test. I know that's tough. But except from drop-testing 3310 every hardware should be designed with Linus Drop Test in mind. OK 3310 should be more Earth friendly.
Daniel-John McFarling
to be fair, here in China, Taobao isn't some sketchy website. everyone buys everything from taobao, and if there are any problems with goods, they always refund and help you out --- brit in china

Let that and other “Cheap Chinese” stuff be a lesson for us. Never underestimate the capabilities of the great sleeping dragon. From my experience in tech, you can buy similar performance systems for almost half the price if you go Chinese.lenovo thinkpad vs. hp zbook vs. dell precision workstation. As US companies we really need to step up our game. Especially intel with its now constant flagrant screw ups. Linus, why do not you do a comparison between the Chinese tech and the American ones?

I just wouldn't use my banking account or a credit card on a Chinese site. Who knows where that info ends up. Could cost a lot more in the long run.

The Chinese supplier was likely congratulated by their peers for selling a repurposed chip (likely intended primarily for the Chinese market) at almost the same price of its legitimate PC counterpart. They probably walked away with a big profit and a big smile.
